How to get the z/VSE status and supported hardware

I am often asked about the support of z/VSE releases and which hardware is supported by release.
I had such a blog entry two years ago. But because the web pages changed, I bring that up again today.
We have status PDF files, where we show the GA, the end of marketing and end of service dates as well as links to the announcements for supported and unsupported releases.
These files also list supported hardware and what you need to consider, such as processors, network / I/O / Crypto cards, IBM Storage (ECKD / SCSI disks, tape, controller, virtual tape server, ...).
You can download the PDFs for the "Hardware and release status' from the "Resources" page - here.
