2530s with 2 SFP+ end of support

    I know these 2530s with 10gig uplinks have been end of sale since 2017 but I also noticed end of support date as 1/30/2022.

    I don't see an end of sale/support for the other 2530 models.
    Will these models still get FW updates?
    Will they be replaced with a comparable 2540 if broken?

    Hello Evan,

    with regard to your two questions:

    1. Will these models (Aruba 2530) still get FW updates? Yes they will (at least until they will reach the - not yet announced - EoS+5Y time limit IIRC).
    2. Will they be replaced with a comparable 2540 if broken? I personally don't know what SKU will be used as replacement ONCE they will enter the EoS phase (probably other Aruba 2530, if they will still available)
    Consider that Aruba planned Customers migrations from ArubaOS-Switch based Aruba 25x0 "low end" models (2530/2540) to the newer ArubaOS-CX based 6100 Switch Series.
