DESCRIPTION

The Hewlett Packard Enterprise MSA2000 Modular Smart Array (MSA) began the End of Life (EOL) process in October 2009. This process consists of multiple stages as described in this notice. This notice is provided to help you understand the various stages of the EOL process and impacts on ordering, product availability, and other important dates.

DETAILS

Product Description and Definitions:

The HPE MSA2000 array systems were initially introduced in March 2008. The HPE MSA2000 family consisted of 3 distinct controllers supporting either iSCSI, Fibre Channel or Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) host interface technologies. The MSA2000 array support included a range of 3.5-inch enterprise-class SAS drives and archival-class SATA drives. The currently shipping MSA1040 and MSA2040 represent the fourth generation of the MSA2000 family and are considered the logical replacements for the discontinued MSA2000 product.

End of Life and Lifecycle Event Definitions:

  • End of Life Announcement (EOL-A): Refers to the EOL announcement date and accompanying documents, for example, a customer notice pertaining to the EOL process from EOL-A through the EOSL period.
  • EOL: Used generically to describe the whole process from EOL to EOSL. The EOL date is also the beginning of the EOL process and defines the date from which other phases will begin to track from.
  • Discontinuance: (DISC) Orders after this date will be accepted and fulfilled based on factory inventory.
  • Obsolescence (OBSO): At the OBSO date, SKUs are physically removed from the HPE Price Lists and ordering systems.
  • End of Support Life (EOSL): HPE Engineering Support for the associated products ends on this date.

HPE MSA2000 EOL Details:

HPE announced EOL for the MSA2000 array systems and bundle SKUs beginning 30 June 2009. These same SKUs transitioned to DISC on 31 March 2010. The MSA2000 array systems and Bundle SKUs went OBSO on 31 January 2014, at which point they were removed from the HPE Price Lists and ordering systems.

  • Hard Drives tracked to their own separate EOL lifecycle dates.
  • End of Support Life (EOSL) occurred 5 years after the depletion of HPE MSA 2000 array inventory, when orders were no longer accepted. The EOSL date for the HPE MSA 2000 was 13 October 2014.
  • Service SKUs used as Field Replacement Units (FRUs) were orderable to support customer service contracts through the EOSL date.

What does this mean?

  • HPE encourages all MSA2000 customers to transition to the newer MSA 1040/2040/2042 arrays as soon as possible to avoid product availability issues. HPE MSA2000 products have passed the EOSL date of 13 October 2014.

SKU List:

The following tables show the MSA2000 array systems and bundle SKUs that were discontinued on 31 March 2010.
