Products End-of-Life Policy

As technology evolves, there comes a time when it is better for our customers to transition to newer platforms. Mellanox's End-of-Sale (EOS) and End-of-Life (EOL) policy is designed to help customers identify such life-cycle transitions and plan their infrastructure deployments with a 3 to 5 year outlook. All End-of-Life announcements will be made on Mellanox's website. The timeline for related milestones in the life cycle of our products is as follows:

  • Last Time Buy (LTB) - This milestone represents the last date that Mellanox will accept orders for the related product. This milestone also represents the last date that customers may purchase or attach new 5Y maintenance contracts to an affected product. After this date, the product is considered within its End-of-Sale (EOS) Support Phase.
  • All customers who have a valid service contract will continue to receive support from Mellanox TAC according to their contract SLA. Your contract expire date is your last day to get support.
  • Customers can renew service contracts up to 1 year prior to the end-of-Service date (OES).
  • Hardware repair or replacement will be available for up to 5 years from the end-of-sale date as long as your service contract is valid
  • End Of Service (EOS) - This milestone represents the last date support will be offered and represents the final milestone in a Mellanox product's life cycle. After this date, Mellanox will not sell, manufacture, improve, maintain or support the affected product and will consider it obsolete.
