Does this SAP 1802 Preview upgrade message have anything to do with the vSaaS/validated environments?

I received this from the SAP notices today. I'm confused- who is getting this v1802 Preview upgrade? I hope not the vSaaS customers. I'm not sure what the Preview environment is in which they are speaking of- I'm getting it confused with the Validated Preview. Is this the Sandbox environment? Two of these notices came- one for the DC8 Ashburn and another for DC4 Chandler.

Thank you-

Hi Katie,

This upgrade is not for the Validated LMS. The Validated LMS upgrade schedule for Production and Production Support is still on March 24th (Saturday). They moved it up one day.

The 1802 preview update they're referencing is for the HCM product suite. They want to make sure the GDPR features are properly vetted. Here is a posting with more info:
