End of Life Information

Stay up to Date on EMC and NetApp End of Life Announcements

Do you have EMC and NetApp equipment in your data center? Not sure when your EMC storage systems are going End of Life (EOL)? Questionable on when your NetApp filers will go End of Availability(EOA)?

Look no further, check out Reliant Technology’s EMC EOL & EOSL Information and NetApp EOA & EOS Information pages to find out what equipment is approaching EOL, EOA, EOSL, or EOS. Use these resources to find upcoming product lifecycle milestones for EMC and NetApp systems like VNX, VNX2, Isilon, VNXe, Celerra, CLARiiON CX, CLARiiON CX3, CLARiiON CX4, Data Domain, FAS, E-Series, V-Series, and EF-Series.


These pages are updated frequently to reflect the most recent EMC and NetApp product lifecycle announcements.


Q: What does End of Life (EOL) or End of Availability (EOA) mean for my EMC and NetApp hardware?

EOL: EOL, or "End of Life," means that EMC will no longer be selling the storage array and will recommend a new system upgrade.

EOSL: EOSL, or "End of Service Life," means that all support, including both primary and extended support options, have ended. It may still be possible to get support from EMC after equipment has gone EOSL, but this will be at a premium cost.

EOA: EOA, or "End of Availability," means that NetApp will no longer be selling that product. If it is covered under NetApp support, you may still be able to get upgrades for a filer after it is EOA.

EOS:EOS, or "End of Support," is the date after which NetApp will no longer support the hardware or software for a product that has been discounted in an EOA notice.


Q: What are my options after my equipment has gone EOL, EOSL, EOA, or EOS?

It’s important to know that you still have options even after your hardware reaches a product lifecycle milestone.
