3PAR End of Life (EOL) Devices
Is Your 3PAR StoreServ Device EOL or EOSL?
Don't worry, we can help!
Though you might not be able to find support through HPE for your 3PAR device that is going or has gone EOSL ((like the StoreServ 7000), you can still get top-notch support for your devices with M Global Services. If your device has gone EOL , you'll only have a couple of years of support available through HPE.
But there's no need to wait—third party maintenance support with M Global makes it easy to:
- Save up to 70% on hardware support costs
- Create a custom solution tailored to fit your needs
- Have your own dedicated parts inventory
- Make communication quick & easy with our escalation process
- Get parts such as disks, nodes, expansion shelves, and more for your EOSL 3PAR devices

What to Do When Your 3PAR Hardware Goes EOL or EOSL
Once your 3PAR device goes EOL or EOSL, you’ve got a couple of options.
1. Upgrade your device to the latest version. If you have the room in your budget and need or want the features available in the upgraded version, this might be a good option for you. But be aware—upgrading is often the most expensive choice.
2. Keep your current equipment and get third party hardware support. If your budget is tight and you don’t want the headache of trying to maintain the equipment yourself, there’s no need to stress—hardware support from a TPM provider is a great choice.
3. If you have the skill and technical expertise, you can choose to maintain your equipment yourself. Though cost-effective on the front end, this option requires the ability to troubleshoot failures, find replacement parts, and have the skill to fix the issue. Weighing the potential risks of downtime and whether your device is part of a critical environment can also help you decide if this is the right option for you.
If you are comfortable using your current equipment after it goes EOL or EOSL and want to increase storage, improve performance, or purchase additional EOSL 3PAR equipment, we can help! A 1-year warranty is provided at no additional cost. We're all about providing out-of-the-box solutions that help you make the most of your environment.

Confused by HPE 3PAR EOL & EOSL Dates?
We get it. Finding EOL & EOSL dates for your HPE 3PAR devices can be a challenge. It helps to know a bit about how HPE approaches end of life and end of service life for their devices.
When HPE announces a product line will go EOL (end of life), there is a chance the date could be continually pushed out until they're ready. Take the StoreServ 7000—HPE initially announced it was going to go EOL in 2017, but parts didn't go fully EOL until 2020. HPE has also announced that the StoreServ 7000 will go EOSL in October of 2022, but the span of time between EOL and EOSL for other HPE products can span many years, making it a bit tricky to plan support options.
3PAR EOSL Support Benefits
Third party maintenance support on your HPE 3PAR storage devices that are EOL is a great way to keep your budget in check. Instead of upgrading to new equipment or wrestling with 3PAR error codes, you can keep your current equipment operational for as long as possible and extend the value of your investment.
Shed the stress and the headache and let us provide hardware support for your current, EOL, or EOSL 3Par device. Your unique needs and environment dictate the custom-tailored solution we create for you. Whether it’s trimming your budget or taking control of your parts stocking inventory, we’ve got you covered.
