End of Hardware Support HP9000 for X, as X approaches infinity.

There should a location somewhere in here that says when End of Support will be for:
V2500, V2600,K250,K570,rp4440, rx4440, and any other HP9000 box that HP has.

Does such a thing exist, and if so where is it?

Hi Steve,

Yes - there is.
BUT HP does not release it externally.
Mainly because it's fairly dynamic.
Your best bet is to contact your local HP Rep - they can give you whatever it is "today" & keep you apprised of any changes.

Rgds,
Jeff

Pronoun trouble: When I said "that" I meant it makes sense to talk to HP directly with the question.

According to the support matrix listed, I have two K570's that become "obsoleted" in July this year. But the contract support (end of contract availability), has no end date.

Once again, thanks for the responses.
I'm sure tons of folks have this question.

Hi Steve,

Technically the "support" never ends. HP would be glad to write you a contract to support those Ks - they'll just laugh all the way to the bank with your *huge* check.
What the "end of support" really means is that IF something happens to them AND they can't fix it for whatever reason they'll just end the contract - hopefully returning any prorated support fees. Essentially it absolves them from "having to" fix it regardless of their effort or cost.

My 2 cents,
Jeff
