XSi’s Q3-21 Server & Storage “Milestone Dates” Alert: EoL & EoSL

If you’re not yet monitoring network 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 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 are often higher!

With the chip shortage affecting all OEMs, NOW more than ever, it’s a good time to extend the life of your server and storage hardware with a maintenance contract from XSi.
