End-of-Service-Life Lists

End-of-Service-Life announcements can create needless anxiety and disruptive challenges for IT managers. After the OEM decides it will no longer support its storage, server, or network hardware, teams are left to identify how they can deal with the potentially unnecessary technology refresh without breaking the budget.

What is an End-of-Service-Life (EOSL)?

End-of-Service-Life (EOSL) means that the OEM will no longer offer support or maintenance for that technology platform. The OEM will be offering new products to the marketplace to replace designated EOSL or EOL systems. Contact Top Gun today to discuss support and maintenance for your data center equipment that is reaching EOSL.

What is End-of-Life (EOL)?

End-of-Life (EOL) implies that the OEM will no longer sell the hardware for that system, market, or update equipment after a certain date. The OEM continues to offer post-warranty support, but Third-Party Maintenance (TPM) is available for most OEM equipment that is EOL.
