IBM has recently announced the End of Support (EoS) dates for several Power 7+ models. Curious to see if your system is in the list?

What has been announced?

Last year, IBM announced the End of Support (EoS) for their several models; including IBM Power 7.

While IBM Power 8 and 9 are currently the market standards, IBM has announced adding IBM Power 7+ to the EoS list.

For these Power 7+ models, IBM will stop providing maintenance on these systems. This means that no support will be provided anymore.

In order to avoid security and reliability risks it is advised to start building a case to upgrade to the Power 9 or a hosting solution like EASI Cloud2be. This will put you at ease for the coming years!
