HP 3PAR

Several years ago as a Solutions Architect, I recommended HP 3PAR storage arrays as part of my total infrastructure solution.  Some of the attractive characteristics included:

 

High availability

High performance

High efficiency

Scalability

High quality of service

This was certainly not a cheap date, however storage was meant to be put in production for 5-7 years which was longer than the recommended life of a server at just 3 years.  Most companies opted to replace everything at 3 years because of creative accounting and OEM’s refusing to offer 4th year maintenance on a barely broken-in storage array.  It was just easier to replace it all…  or was it?  

 

I spent many years building solutions for companies who didn’t have much in the way of technology and help automate processes to effectively grow their company.  Other companies have a complex infrastructure and moving to new is always painful.  If you are like most companies, the thought of moving to new equipment requires months and months of preparation for a migration.  This is not easy as we would like it to be.  But what can we do differently?  Unless there is a compelling reason to refresh the environment, why not consider Third Party Maintenance?  This allows you to extend the life of your equipment beyond the warranty period included from the OEM’s at a 50-70% savings.

With 3PAR, we service the following types of storage arrays

HP Proliant G7

At the end of this year, HP will be dropping support for most of their Gen 7 line of products.  By May of next year, all HP Proliant G7 products will be unsupported by HP.  This does not mean that you need to replace your equipment but that you need to find someone to provide warranty and maintenance for your G7 servers.  Sherlock Services provides a full range of support models to match your needs and budget from next business day parts only to 24x7 with dispatch service.

Servers that HP will be dropping the support for are known to be "End of Service Life" or EOSL.  The servers that are included in the G7 announcement are:

 

HP ProLiant BL465c G7 Blade

HP ProLiant BL490c G7 Blade

HP ProLiant DL360 G7

HP ProLiant DL380 G7

HP ProLiant DL385 G7

 

Don't let your maintenance lapse.  Parts for these servers can be very expensive as they get older but Sherlock Services has plenty of stock to supply their customers.  Reach out today and see what we can do for you.

Legacy Isilon

Many companies invested in Isilon technology for its flexibility as well as the superior customer service.  We have now come to a time when most Isilon Legacy X and NL series are no longer supported by EMC/Dell.  At the end of October this year, all of these systems will be EOSL and the only way to get support is through third party.  Sherlock Services provides maintenance for most models of Isilon products using our world-class engineers and forward stock parts.  

Models EOSL 10/31/2017:

EMC Isilon IQ 3200X

EMC Isilon IQ 7200X

EMC Isilon IQ 36NL

EMC Isilon IQ 108NL

Give us a call and ask for Chad if you have an Isilon that is either near or at EOSL to continue to have support.
