New 3 Year Warranty for the HP X510 DataVault

Terry over at WeGotServed has news of a press announcement from HP that extends the factory warranty of the HP Storageworks X510 DataVault from one to three years for both new and existing owners. This is a wise move on the part of HP, as I believe the Small Business target market of the DataVault expects a longer warranty, especially when purchasing equipment that is designed to keep their operations running.

he HP StorageWorks X510 Data Vault, which launched on October 1, 2009, is offering a new, extended warranty duration. The warranty duration for the HP StorageWorks X510 Data Vault has been extended to 3 years. This includes a 3 year limited warranty on hardware and a 3 year technical support warranty on software.

Affected products

1 TB (Q2050A), 2 TB (Q2051A), 3 TB (Q2052A)

No other changes to Limited Warranty and Technical Support Statement

All other terms and conditions of the HP StorageWorks Data Vault Limited Warranty and Technical Support Statement remain unchanged and in full effect, including but not limited to those related to the determination of the commencement date of the Limited Warranty Period.

Did you also notice that HP’s website doesn’t have any of the MediaSmart Servers or X510 devices listed at the moment?

Strange, wondering if they’re preparing to do a line-up refresh or such…
