IBM EOL/EOSL Products and SKUs

Has your IBM equipment reached or is approaching the end of its service life (EOSL)? That means IBM will no longer provide technical support or maintenance for your hardware. It might seem like you only have two options: upgrade to newer equipment, or take on the heavy burden of troubleshooting, sparing, and remediating the EOSL equipment. However, there are better options you should consider.

At CentricsIT, we offer TPM and ITAD solutions for customers looking for a more practical, flexible way to support your IBM hardware for the remainder of the IT lifecycle, even after EOSL has been announced.

Third-Party Maintenance for IBM End-of-Life (EOL) and IBM End-of-Service-Life (EOSL)

Gartner recently reported that 71% of the Fortune 100 Companies are utilizing third party maintenance in order to cut operating expenses, extend the life of their equipment, and put the decision-making power back in their hands. TPM pricing and continued support provides you the flexibility to save toward a capital outlay and prepare for the eventual transition to newer equipment—but this time, it’s on your schedule.

Our global network of partners and market specialists enables us to get the best possible deals on new and refurbished hardware anywhere in the world. Not only that, we also have access to qualified engineers worldwide, meaning we provide the same level of hardware support you’ve been used to with IBM (if not better). This combination results in a comprehensive and affordable third-party maintenance solution that beats out IBM support prices by 50%-80%.
