    Timeless Storage lets you take the worry out of keeping your flash storage fresh, current, and modern with the latest technology so you can avoid costly rip-and-replace cycles that end with forklift upgrades.

     

    Keep your storage continuously up-to-date with a technology refresh every three years—or sooner, if required.  3

     

    The best part is there are no strings attached. No renewal is required in order to receive your first Technology Refresh and there is no requirement that you renew the Timeless Storage program after you undergo a technology refresh.

     

    Refer to the Services Data Sheet for full details, terms, and conditions pertaining to the HPE Controller Refresh and the Timeless Storage program.

     

    Performance refresh

    Media Trade-in Credits

    With Timeless Storage, you can achieve a full system refresh every six years with the latest storage and controller technology, including NVMe and beyond. In fact, if you buy 3X as much storage as your original flash capacity, we’ll give you a 105% media credit toward new flash media, and you will never pay for the same storage again.

     

    After the completion of year six in the program, you have the option to:

     

    • Purchase 3X your existing capacity to, receive 105% credit for your existing capacity
    • Purchase 2X your existing capacity to, receive 70% credit for your existing capacity
    • Purchase 1X your existing capacity to, receive 35% credit for your existing capacity

     

    Media Trade-in Credits require new raw capacity purchase equivalent to existing raw capacity or greater. With the Media Trade-in feature of the Timeless Storage program for HPE Nimble Storage, you have the ability to exercise two Media Credit refreshes in 10 years.
