MDS End Of Life List

Search our entire EOSL Library
An end-of-service-life announcement can spell trouble for IT managers. When MDS decides it will no longer support its storage, server, or network hardware, IT teams are left scrambling trying to figure out what they can do to deal with the problem without breaking the budget. Park Place Technologies makes it easy to find the latest End of Life (EOL) and End of Service Life (EOSL) information for your MDS hardware. Allowing you to extend the support cycle and maximize the value of your hardware by saving 30 - 40% against that MDS contract.

Cisco MDS is a series of multilayer director switches. These switches offer network and storage management intelligence which ultimately lowers the total cost of ownership. Cisco MDS allows integrated analytics for visibility, performance, scalability, exceptional reliability, and flexibility. When your Cisco MDS EOL dates roll around, don’t let the OEM give you the mistaken impression that your only option is a network hardware refresh. Trusted providers of third party data center hardware maintenance can help extend the useful life of your devices.

By using network hardware maintenance instead of engaging in a refresh, you can avoid large capital expenditure and make your IT budget last longer. Contact Park Place Technologies today to learn about our post-warranty maintenance options.
