Oracle Pillar Axiom 600 System Storage Becomes Non-Qualifying

After March 1st 2016, Oracle Pillar Axiom 600 System Storage Specialization no longer qualifies for the Specialization Benefits, however specialized partners will retain their Oracle Pillar Axiom 600 System Storage Specialization until the version of the product reaches End of Service Life (EOSL).
