MSA 2012i and 2312i questions

I was recently told the following while I was checking to see if the MSA 2012i is on the VMware ESX 4.0 HCL (it's not there yet):

1) The MSA 2012i is now EOL -- is this true?? when is/was this EOL effective??

2) The MSA 2012i can be converted to a 2312i by installing new controllers -- is this true?? what are the part numbers?? what
new features are provided as a result??

Thank you, Tom

That's what I was told by my HP var.

AJ803A

I don't know of any new features -- the 2312i is on the ESX 4.0 HCL.

Here is the part on CDWG's site:

About $3000 -- and if you look it up online the 2312i does not have a whole lot of new compelling features in it that makes it worth spending this much!!!

HP tech support has told me that the 2012i is NOT EOL yet -- just superseded by the 2312i.

Hopefully we don't have to replace it for a long time to come...it was expensive!!

Thank you, Tom
