OEM hardware vendors regularly decide on a two hard cutoff dates. The first is the End of Life (EOL) date, and the second is the End of Service Life (ESOL).

EOL or “End of Life”  means that the product in question has reached the end of its “useful lifespan.” This is when the manufacturer recommends a hardware refresh or an upgrade to the latest generation. When a product’s EOL date has approached the product manufacturer will no longer be selling or marketing the hardware in question. There may still be OEM maintenance options available, but at a much higher price point than before.

EOSL or “End of Service Life” means that not only is the manufacturer no longer selling or marketing the hardware, but all support and maintenance services including extended warrantees, will no longer be offered by the OEM. This is where a third-party maintenance (TPM) provider such as ISC Group comes into play.

ISC Group is an industry leading Post Warranty TPM provider that has been recognized by Gartner several times as an industry representative for all third party maintenance companies. ISC Group can provide you with the same level of OEM service and support that you’ve become accustomed to at a fraction of the OEM price.
