IBM has historically provided service support for at least five years following a product's withdrawal from marketing. While IBM does not guarantee that any product will have a particular period of support following withdrawal from marketing, IBM does not presently plan to deviate from its historical service and support practice with the System z product line. However, please be aware that IBM's plans may change at its sole discretion without notice. IBM determines a product's end-ofservice (EOS) date by considering a large number of factors, including but not limited to the number of machines installed in the geography, spare parts availability, and the availability of skilled personnel. IBM will announce a product's EOS date at least 90 days before the actual EOS date and in most cases longer. In some geographies, when EOS is announced, service support may still be available through a special bid.

The information shown here is based on published Canadian announcement letters as of the release date of this document. Although the graphic chart shows availability and service for products in the future, this may change due to future IBM announcements. Suggestions and comments are welcomed by the authors.
