HPE End of Service Life List

Announcements regarding HPE’s End of Service Life may present challenges for IT teams. With the phasing out of Foundation Care for HPE’s storage and server hardware, businesses might find themselves facing limited options that could potentially impact their operations.

What is HPE End of Service Life (EOSL)?

HPE End of Service Life (EOSL) means that HPE will no longer offer HPE Foundation Care support for that specific platform. HPE refreshes the marketplace with products every year designed to replace HP EOSL or EOL systems. Typically five years past the OBSO date.

What is HPE EOL (End of Life)?

HPE End of Life (EOL) means that HPE will no longer sell the hardware for that system, market, or update equipment after a certain date. Used generically to describe the whole process from EOL to EOSL. The EOL date is also the beginning of the EOL process and defines the date from which other phases will begin to track from.
