Product line enhancements and upgrades may bring current products to the end of their life cycle. Once you have received an End of Life (EOL) notification from Brocade, a Broadcom Inc. Company, you can continue to purchase the product until the Last Time Order date, assuming that it is still available. If you signed a support agreement prior to the EOL notification, Brocade will continue to support the product through the term of your agreement or the product's End of Support date.

The list of notices below relates to the Brocade SAN product line only. Each notice highlights specific SKUs within that product line that are included in End-of-Life announcements. To search the full list by SKU, see the Product End-of-Life Publish report.
