Brocade 300 End of Sale and End of Support

Hello,

I have had no luck searching for an EOL/EOS document for Brocade 300 series switches.  Can someone provide me these dates?

That is, because to my knowledge, Brocade has not publicly announced any plans or dates to EOL/EOS any of the 8 Gb portfolio.  So when that decision comes, we will notify all OEMs/Resellers who will in turn notify their field and customers.

Thanks.  My local SE just confirmed as much, and also mentioned that last day was support was 5 years after last customer ship.

That is correct and just to add a bit more information.  We go 'end of sale' first, then at that time...  for the next 5 years we provide support and if critical bugs/issues are discovered then (though its rare), we'll still put out patch releases if necessary.

And to add even a bit more... feel free to ask any questions such as this.  Typically I (and most fellow tech'ers on the Brocade Community forums) try to provide as much insight as we possibly can.
