Q2-23 EOSL Dates for Your Enterprise Servers, Storage & Network Assets

By Brian Kjera, Top Gun

IT professionals responsible for managing hardware assets often monitor the end-of-service life (EOSL) dates of their data center equipment. This is crucial for effective IT budget management, especially when preparing for support renewals and during times of inflation. By flagging and setting up alerts for EOSL dates, IT asset managers can enable their teams to make informed decisions and identify new opportunities for cost savings and operational efficiencies.

Monitoring EOSL dates can optimize IT support spending (OpEx) by allowing users to plan hardware refresh cycles based on business needs, rather than relying on OEM EOSL dates to dictate hardware changes. Top Gun, for example, regularly reviews EOSL announcements to ensure that our engineering support services are ready and available to assist companies transitioning their post-warranty or EOSL hardware to a proven independent support model. By incorporating EOSL data into IT asset lifecycle planning, teams can be better prepared to switch to alternative maintenance options and prevent unnecessary cost increases.
