November ‘22 EOSL Dates for Your Enterprise Servers, Storage & Network Hardware
By Brian Kjera, Top Gun
The world’s most efficient IT ops (or ITAM) pros will track enterprise IT hardware EOSL dates because these “triggers” are essential to managing IT budgets, especially in preparation for support renewals and during inflationary periods. When IT teams have this data readily accessible and have established flagging/alerts, the IT team can proactively be prepared with support contingencies that enable greater efficiencies and hardware support cost improvements.
Tracking these dates is an invaluable task that optimizes IT OpEx spend by helping users strategically plan refresh cycles based on business demands, rather than allowing OEM EOSL dates to dictate costly hardware changes. At Top Gun, we continuously review EOSL announcements to ensure our engineering support services are ready and available for companies that strategically shift their post-warranty or EOSL hardware to a proven independent support model. By leveraging EOSL data as an integral component of your IT asset lifecycle planning, we believe you’ll be better prepared to transition hardware maintenance to logical alternatives and minimize/eliminate unnecessary cost increases.

Alphabetized by OEM, the hardware models displayed already have or will soon reach the manufacturers’ announced End-of-Service Life (EOSL). After these dates, OEM support pricing has traditionally increased quite significantly.
Top Gun is a global provider of multi-vendor and mission critical server maintenance, storage maintenance, network hardware maintenance and software support.
