    Hi.

    Detail answer for this question clear next DOCs:

    How to check the "End of Service Life" for a particular supported Oracle Hardware that depends on the Lifetime Support Policy (LSP) (Doc ID 2055529.1)

    List of Oracle Supported Hardware with Last Ship Dates Announced (Doc ID 1450710.1)

    Short:

    ... Oracle Premier Support for Systems ... will be available for a minimum

      of five years from the last ship date of the hardware system.

     ... Oracle will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide twelve (12)

      months advance notice of End of Service Life.

    For Virtual Storage Manager System 7 (VSM7) Last shipment date: Jun 2019

    So at least Jun 2024 this system will be supported.

    But even after this time support can be still available (need monitor updates for Doc ID 1450710.1).

    You should also read :  Oracle Hardware and Systems Support Policies (PDF)

       http://www.oracle.com/us/support/library/hardware-systems-support-policies-069182.pdf

    Support will more expensive every year and may be some delay for delivery spare parts for systems older 5 years from EOL.
