Q2-22 May EoSL Dates for Your Enterprise Servers, Storage & Network Assets

By Brian Kjera, Top Gun Technology

As you already know, there is data worth tracking and there’s data that evokes little actionable value. Hardware EoSL dates are worth tracking because, with proper use and at the right timing, can create negotiating leverage and support options during your hardware maintenance support renewals.

Tracking these EoSL dates is an essential task for IT organizations that continually optimize their support spend by strategically planning refresh cycles based on business demands rather than allowing an OEM’s EoSL dates to dictate their hardware changes.  At Top Gun, we constantly research and analyze EoSL announcement dates to ensure our engineering and support services are ready and available for companies that purposefully shift their post-warranty and EoSL hardware to our support. By leveraging our consolidated collection of EoSL data into your lifecycle planning, we believe you’ll be better prepared to transition your hardware maintenance to Top Gun and prevent unnecessary hardware changes that often impose risk and disruption to your operation.

Get the most value from your data center hardware by engaging Top Gun Technology to help you accelerate IT projects and tackle asset lifecycle changes, as and how you choose. Feel free to subscribe to our regular EoSL updates email. Optionally just follow our company profile at LinkedIn for monthly reminder posts.

The hardware models below will reach manufacturers’ End-of-Service Life (EOSL) in Q2. After these dates, the OEM will no longer provide reasonably priced support or refuse support altogether.

If your assets are post-warranty or have reached EoSL, talk to our team of world-class engineers to help optimize your operational performance while maintaining system availability.
