XSi Quarterly Alert – 4th Quarter 2020: EoL, EoSW & EoS/LDoS – Popular OEM Models to be Managing

If you’re not yet monitoring enterprise Hardware Lifecycle Milestone dates, this ALERT provides a quick-glance review of popular OEM models that have reached (or about to reach) End of Software Support (EoSW), End of Support (EoS) and/or Last Date of Support (LDoS. For these enterprise networking, server and storage hardware asset models, it no longer makes financial sense to rely on expensive OEM support – but instead, should move to less costly, independent (IT Maintenance) hardware support.

The important “hardware milestone dates” help you easily identify when there are no remaining logical reasons to keep these assets within an OEM maintenance agreement. There is simply no way to justify the added expense. Assets past such key milestone dates often witness reductions of 60-80% less than OEM pricing. Of course when the OEM is pressing for the tech refresh, savings can be much higher! We will share this kind of alert quarterly via our blogs, so be sure to follow XSi at LinkedIn to regularly find this and other helpful information from our Subject Matter Experts.
