HPE c7000 and Blades Going EOS Soon

Posted by Vista IT Group on Sep 24, 2019 4:31:22 PM

HPE c7000 chassis and Gen10 blades will be going End-of-Sale at the end of this year.  If you’re like most HPE blade customers, you aren’t ready to do a large fork lift upgrade to a new platform.  Vista IT can help you extend the life of your c7000 blade infrastructure long after the end of the year.  We take strategic inventory positions on HPE servers prior to them going end-of-sale so we are able to provide new blades long after you can no longer get them anywhere else.  For example, we have new BL460c Gen9 in-stock, even though they went end-of-sale over a year ago and currently have over 150 new Gen9 and Gen10 blades in-stock that can be configured-to-order.
