General availability of new SGI® Origin® 3900 and SGI® Origin® 350 servers, and the Silicon Graphics Fuel® and Silicon Graphics® Tezro® workstations will end on December 29, 2006, however, SGI will continue to support these MIPS IRIX products through December 2013. SGI Technology Solutions will continually support these products as long as customers desire such support and as long as it is economically viable.
SGI adheres by a strict policy for communicating changes to production, availability and how this will affect the service and support you currently receive on products purchased from SGI. While the End-of-Support (EOS) for MIPS/IRIX products is currently scheduled for December 2013, SGI Technology Solutions has a dedicated support planning team and a comprehensive process in place to ensure continued product support. Your investment will be protected. Service capabilities for products that have reached the end of production (EOP) phase are reviewed annually and every effort is made to extend whenever possible. This process has enabled us to extend support for SGI products well beyond industry expectations.
SGI Commitment to MIPS IRIX
Product availability and fulfillment will continue until December 29, 2006. All customer purchase orders for new MIPS/IRIX products will need to be received no later than December 29, 2006, with orders fulfilled no later than March 2007. After this date, these products will continue to be available as new systems through special arrangement, or as SGI remarketed products.
SGI is committed to protecting your investment in SGI products. If you have additional questions, please contact your regional SGI representative.
