XSi’s Q2-21 Server & Storage “Milestone Dates” Alert: EoL & EoSL

If you’re not yet monitoring enterprise Hardware Milestone dates, this ALERT provides a summary of popular network hardware models that have recently – or about to reach – End of Software Support (EoSW) and Last Date of Support (LDoS). 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 are pushing for the tech refresh, savings can be much higher!

With the chip shortage affecting Cisco, NOW more than ever, it’s a good time to extend the life of your network equipment with a maintenance contract from XSi.
