Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are extending the end of life for CeDAR 4 until June 30th, 2021 after which point CeDAR 4 will no longer be supported.

What “No longer be supported” means for you:

  • We’ll no longer make any modifications to CeDAR logic for screens, reports, alarms, new permits, bugs in the software, etc. for sites running CeDAR 4.
  • We’ll no longer offer troubleshooting of issues with CeDAR 4 (communication issues, alarms, exceedances, data editing, data purging, etc.)
  • We’ll no longer offer support for CeDAR 4 to CeDAR 4 computer replacements.
  • We’ll no longer offer updated versions of breez75x on CeDAR 4 systems. That means any changes to the federal regulations, ECMPS schema, etc. will not be supported for sites running breez75x with CeDAR 4.
  • EDR service and EDR assistance will continue to be offered, but would be limited exclusively to the EDR scope of supply. Currently, we plan to continue to offer those services to CeDAR 4 sites for one year after CeDAR 4’s end of life.

Minimum system requirements for CeDAR 7 include:

  • Windows 10 Pro- 64-bit
  • 16 GB of RAM
  • Intel i7 or Xeon processor
  • 512 GB hard drive

CeDAR 7 also requires SQL server 2014 (or higher) standard edition.  CeDAR 7 will run on Windows 10 or Windows Server 2012, Server 2016, or Server 2019. CeDAR 7 will also run on Windows 7, however Microsoft no longer supports Windows 7.  CiSCO recommends upgrading Windows 7 machines to Windows 10.
