Take Action Now – Choose Riverstone Technology

Looming EOSL deadlines don’t have to be a source of worry and stress. Nor do they need to mean contemplating a major investment in new hardware just to keep your warranty protection. Don’t fall victim to manufacturers’ artificial refresh cycle. An EOSL announcement does not mean that your hardware is automatically outdated or that it will stop working properly after a certain date. It simply means that the manufacturer wants to focus on releasing new products to boost profitability.

The good news is that your existing hardware has years of service life remaining. We can help you unlock that service while driving down the total cost of ownership and increasing ROI. Our team regularly extends the useful life of data center hardware by five to 10 years beyond the official EOSL. What could you do with an extra decade? 

At Riverstone, our industry-expert technicians deliver critical service to keep your hardware up and running and minimize downtime. You can use that opportunity to invest in other critical initiatives, plan your hardware upgrade in detail, and more. It is time to act. Ideally, we want our customers to secure post-warranty support four to six months before the official EOSL. However, if you have a fast-approaching date, we can still help. Call us today at 877-819-6757 or chat live with one of our team members to learn more.
