Blog: HP Gen8 servers to go end of life.

2018 update: HPE Gen 8 servers are now end of life, but this doesn’t mean they are no longer available. Trustco can source Gen8 servers from HPE, refurbished, with a 1-year HPE warranty, enabling you to keep the lights on a little longer.

Let us know if you would like a quote for servers or components today. As a HPE lifecycle asset management partner, we can source and supply them all. 


Not a day goes by where we do not get a call here at Trustco requesting pricing and availability for HP’s popular ProLiant Gen8 servers. It makes sense as the IDC Worldwide Server Tracker reported in August 2014 that HP ProLiant has been the #1 server brand for 73 consecutive quarters – that is over 18 years!

Although HP Gen8 models still prove popular, HP has recently signalled that they will be going end of life over the next few weeks – meaning you will no longer be able to order them. Don’t worry – Trustco can offer you 3 solutions:

  1. Trustco’s bespoke in-house systems offer real-time pricing and availability from over 50 distributors, ensuring the fastest and most exhaustive stock query in the marketplace today. So if there is any remaining stock out there, we can get this for you.
  2. Trustco can help extend the life of your HP infrastructure by offering comprehensive HP support, HP spares and HP parts for end of life products.
  3. Finally, have you considered upgrading to Gen9? Aiming at the mid-market – the servers have been optimised for convergence, cloud and software-defined environments. You can find out the finer details of Gen9 in this blog post written last year.

Trustco has been an authorised HP business partner for servers, storage, backup and networking solutions for over 15 years. Contact us today to discuss the latest developments in HP Servers and HP storage.
