EMC End of Life (EOL) Devices
Is your EMC storage device EOL or EOSL?
Don't worry! We can help.
If your Dell EMC device has gone EOL, like the Dell EMC SC line (formerly EMC Compellent), you’ll likely be able to get support from Dell for a little while, but before long you’ll have to decide what to do next. Dell will recommend that you upgrade your hardware. But that’s not your only option. If you’re looking to extend the life of your equipment as long as possible and stretch your budget, third party maintenance can be a great option.
A support contract with M Global makes it easy to:
- Save on hardware support costs—up to 70% less than Dell support
- Tailor a contract with custom solutions
- Have a dedicated parts inventory just for you
- Reduce communication headaches with our simple escalation process

What to do when your EMC hardware goes EOL or EOSL
Once your Dell EMC storage equipment goes EOL or EOSL, you’ve got a few options.
1. Upgrade to the latest version of your equipment. Sometimes, like in the case of the Dell EMC SC line, the whole line goes EOL, so you may need to transition to a different series all together. Dell is recommending the PowerStore series as the upgrade for Dell SC EOL equipment. It’s true that there are more features, but the price tag is significantly more too.
2. Keep your current EMC devices and get hardware support with a TPM provider. Your Dell EMC EOL or EOSL equipment can be supported long after it’s no longer possible to get support from Dell. Extending the life of your hardware is good for the budget and saves you the headache of having to deal with potential issues by yourself.
3. If you have the time and resources, you could choose to maintain your Dell EMC EOSL devices yourself. This option might seem budget friendly from the outset, but it’s important to weigh other factors including the risk of potential downtime, how critical your environment is, and whether you have the resources to troubleshoot failures, procure replacement parts, and understand proper replacement procedures.
If you intend to use equipment that is EOL and want to purchase additional devices for your environment, we can help you source and purchase refurbished equipment that would no longer be possible to purchase through the manufacturer. We also provide a one-year warranty at no additional cost. We love creating out-of-the-box solutions for our clients and their environments.

Confused by Dell EMC EOL & EOSL Dates?
Generally, Dell will provide hardware support for five years after the EOL date, but staying current on when your Dell EMC devices have gone or will go EOL can be a challenge. If you have a Dell account, it is possible to see EOL & EOSL dates for your storage devices once you are logged in.
Sometimes when equipment goes EOL, like in the case of the Dell SC line, a hardware refresh might not be as simple as replacing with an upgraded but similar model. Because the Dell SC line represents a popular mid-tier storage solution and at present there is no similar mid-tier line to replace it, customers may be facing a more expensive and drastic shift when they are ready for a hardware refresh. Many people will likely want to keep their current Dell SC / Compellent equipment running for as long as possible.
Dell EMC EOSL Support Benefits
Keep your budget in check and avoid the headache of dealing with hardware failures by getting a hardware support contract on your Dell EMC storage devices that are EOL or EOSL. Instead of upgrading to new equipment, you can keep your current equipment in play for as long as possible.
Shed the stress and the headache and let us provide hardware support for your current, EOL, or EOSL EMC device. Your environment and individual needs help us create a custom solution and an SLA that works for you.
