Q1-23 EOSL Dates for Your Enterprise Servers, Storage & Network Assets
By Brian Kjera, Top Gun
Many hardware asset managers or IT operations professionals track data center hardware EOSL dates because, EOSL dates are essential to managing IT budgets, especially in preparation for support renewals and during periods of inflation. When IT Asset Management (or portfolio management) personnel have this data and have established flagging/alerts, your team can be better prepared with options that enable new efficiencies and cost savings.
Tracking these 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 strategically shift their post-warranty or EOSL hardware to a proven independent support model. By leveraging EOSL data into your IT asset lifecycle planning, we believe you’ll be better prepared to transition hardware maintenance to logical alternatives and prevent unnecessary cost increases.
