What is the impact and recommended action?
Intel will make commercially reasonable efforts to support last time order quantities. As such, please provide your demand collection estimates before May 19, 2017, to your sales contact here at Boston.
However, due to supply limitations, customer Data Center orders may be fulfilled from the Intel® SSD DC P3520/S3520 Series as well as several other options which support the transition to future Intel SSD and Intel® Optane™ SSD products.
For Intel® SSD Client Family there are several options to support the transition to future Intel SSDs and Intel® Optane™ Memory.
Customers are strongly encouraged to immediately qualify and expedite ramp of 3D NAND and Intel® Optane™ Technology products, the local sales team here at Boston will be on hand and ready to help you select an appropriate replacement.
We look forward to helping you select and evaluate your next Intel SSD, so please don’t hesitate to contact us for our friendly, free advice.
