HP announces End of Life for Virtual Array P6000 family

HP announces End of Life for Virtual Array P6000 family

Monday, September 30, 2013

The EVA P6000 systems will no longer be orderable after January 31, 2014.
Customers who have purchased EVA P6350 and P6550 storage systems will be
supported until January 31, 2019, 5 years after the obsolescence date, and may
purchase additional hardware and software upgrades until January 31, 2017.
HP remains committed to providing EVA P6000 customers with long term
investment protection. HP will continue to qualify new disk drives for EVA P6000
Storage to ensure that add-on disk drives, disk drive enclosures, and software are
available for future expansion for three years after EVA’s last sales date. In the past
month, HP introduced a new 4TB SAS drive for EVA P6000 Storage for increased
application consolidation and in the near future will add VAAI UNMAP support for
better integration with VMware.
HP will continue to qualify new revisions of major new operating system (Windows,
VMware, Linux, and HP-UX) until January 31, 2015 to ensure HP EVA Storage will run
in your environment.

Customers with EVA systems older than the P6350 and P6550 are strongly
recommended to migrate to the new HP 3PAR StoreServ 7000 Storage. Contact us today to find out which solutions would suit your organisation.
