September ‘22 EoSL Dates for Servers, Storage & Network Hardware

By Brian Kjera, Top Gun Technology

Tracking EoSL dates for your servers, storage and network hardware is 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 enabled flagging/alerts, your team can be better prepared with options that enable significant cost savings.

Tracking EoSL 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 purposefully shift their post-warranty or EoSL hardware to our proven support model. By leveraging EoSL data into your lifecycle planning, we believe you’ll be better prepared to transition hardware maintenance to Top Gun and prevent unnecessary cost increases.

If your assets are post-warranty or EoSL, talk to our team to help optimize your operational performance while maintaining system availability. Feel free to subscribe to our regular EoSL Updates Email.

The hardware models displayed below will soon reach the manufacturers’ End-of-Service Life (EOSL). After these dates, you can expect the pricing for OEM support to increase significantly.
