August ‘22 EOSL Dates for Enterprise Servers, Storage & Network Hardware

By Brian Kjera, Top Gun

Many ITAM or IT Ops pros track hardware EOSL dates because, with proper use and ideal timing, this data can create negotiating leverage and support options during your hardware support renewals.

Tracking EOSL dates is an invaluable task that optimizes IT support (OpEx) spend by helping users strategically plan refresh cycles based on business demands rather than allowing the OEM’s EOSL dates to dictate hardware changes. At Top Gun, we continuously review EOSL announcements to ensure our engineering support services are ready and available for companies that purposefully shift their post-warranty or EOSL hardware to our proven support model. By leveraging EOSL data into your lifecycle planning, we believe you’ll be better prepared to transition hardware maintenance to Top Gun and prevent unnecessary cost increases – while your modernization strategies are rightly focused elsewhere.

If your assets are post-warranty or EOSL, talk to our team to help optimize your operational performance while maintaining system availability. Feel free to subscribe to our regular EOSL updates.

The hardware models displayed below will soon reach the manufacturers’ End-of-Service Life (EOSL). After these dates, the OEM will no longer provide reasonably priced support or may refuse any support options you prefer.
