Avaya S8800 End of Sale Notice

End of Sale Notice
Notification Date: October 25, 2010
Effective Date: June 6, 2011
Subject: S8800 Server End of Sale Notice
Theatre/Region: Global
Summary
In a year of unprecedented product innovation, Avaya is continuing to bring new “Fit for Purpose” solutions to our partners and customers with a new selection of application servers to replace the existing S8800 series. We are accelerating our commitment to open solutions by moving to the use of industry standard server platforms for all our real time communications applications.
The S8800 server uses Intel®’s Xeon E5500 series processor and this processor will shortly be going end of life. Avaya is leveraging this life cycle event to move away from proprietary hardware designs and towards the use of Commercial Off-The-Shelf (COTS) server platforms. The introduction of this strategy will allow our customers to take advantage of the benefits of next generation servers based on the continued development of Intel® processors. Beginning in November 2010, Avaya will introduce support for the HP® DL360 G7 as well as the Dell® R610. Avaya applications will begin to utilize these servers on new shipments. Note that not all applications are available on both platforms. Details of the applicable server and application pairings will be made available as new application releases are introduced to market.
This change will be introduced over several months to ensure a smooth transition for customers. Applications shipping on these next generation servers will also be certified to run on deployed S8800 servers supporting upgrade paths. Hardware support for S8800 servers will be provided for three years after the S8800 End of Sale date, effectively until June 6, 2014. Avaya S8800 servers will continue to be available for a period of time to support customers in the midst of roll outs or to allow the time required to qualify these new servers in customer networks.
Individual applications will be introduced on an HP® or a Dell® server in the launches starting November 2010 and extending through June 2011.
Effective June 6, 2011 at the latest, Avaya will no longer sell (make commercially available) the S8800 servers as part of the Avaya application products. Should any of the following server codes stock out prior to June 6, 2011, appropriate notices will be provided as soon as possible. It is recommended that customers place orders for S8800 application products earlier in this transition period to meet their needs.
