What is EOL (End of Life) and how does it impact companies?

What is EOL and how does it impact the availability of IT equipment?

EOL stands for “End of life”, is a term used in the context of products, especially hardware and software. It indicates that a product has reached the end of its useful life cycle, which happens when a manufacturer decides to discontinue production of equipment or when a specific component of a system is no longer produced or supported by the original manufacturer.

When a product reaches EOL status, it implies that the manufacturer will no longer provide technical support or software updates, making replacement parts increasingly scarce. This situation can affect the availability of IT equipment for companies that depend on these systems in their daily operations.

Lack of support and software updates can leave systems vulnerable to security issues and performance failures. In addition, replacement parts shortages can lead to extended downtime and additional equipment replacement costs.
