Each hardware and software principal host EOL i.e. end of life of particular product on there web site. You can plan upgradation or replacement based on this data. If data is not available on site then you can contact service provider and get these details.
If product is EOL and still support for that product can be provided from service partner or from principal then you should take that duration also into consideration.

There can be as if in long run you face any issue and vender is not supporting you on issues then you will have problem. that is why i said in my comment that if product is EOL but support is available then you should consider that. for e.g. If application is announce as EOL by principal but if they announce that support for that application will be available for next 2 years then you can stay with that application for two years. During this duration you will get support from principal but new updates or development will not be available.
