How HPE killed StoreVirtual VSA...

Hi all,
tell you story.

One of our customers once bought a product HP StoreVirtual VSA (2x 10TB),
with a perpetual licence and with a support for 5 years.
Because of the upcoming expiration of the support, we wanted to offer him an extension for another year.
HPE told us that the customer cannot extend his support,
he has to buy the same product again as if he's never used the old one!

Later on, another one of our customers bought the same product,
this time with a temporary licence and with a support for 3 years.
As before, we wanted to offer him an extension for another year,
but HPE told us that the customer has to buy the new perpetual licence
because the sale and the support VSA with a temporary licence has ended.

Only a fool would buy that product again,
because after all this, nobody will ever have a certainty if HPE changes something in their licence system in the future.
So, that's how HPE killed a very interesting software StoreVirtual VSA in the Czech Republic!

I'm not even mentioning that there hasn't been a new update for a very long time (about year).

Good bye, HPE StoreVirtual VSA....

PS: Is dirty trick happening somewhere else in the world?

Hi

Everything you say is correct

only now you can also buy a license without expiration date
