XSi’s Q1-2021 Server & Storage Hardware “Milestone Dates” Alert: EoL & EoSL

If you’re not yet monitoring enterprise Hardware Milestone dates, this ALERT provides a summary of popular server and storage hardware models that have recently – or about to reach – End of Software Support (EoSW) and End of Support (EoS). For these models, it no longer makes financial sense to rely on expensive OEM support – but instead, assets should be moved to lower-cost, independent IT Hardware Maintenance. Assets past milestone dates often see OpEx reductions of 60-80% less than OEM pricing. Of course when OEMs push for the tech refresh, savings can be much higher! Be sure to follow our company profile at LinkedIn to never again miss these quarterly announcements.
