This can lead to poor performance, security vulnerabilities, software incompatibilities, and high operating costs. Paying attention to these dates and creating a plan for your EOSL and EOL equipment can help your data center continue to run smoothly, even if you find that your budget can’t cope with expensive upgrades. has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for BROCADE 16-PORT FC-1GB MULTI PROTOCOL ROUTER

Even if a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the product is not useless. It still has a lot of its original value. If the product works for your company, it is convenient to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any glaring issues with the hardware or problems with its place in your company’s infrastructure, you can stretch your initial investment and keep the product working longer with TPM.
If you’re not ready to upgrade your hardware yet, don’t worry. You can use TPM to help you continue using your existing equipment. This will allow you to upgrade at your own pace and prepare for the transition. You can also make sure you have the finances in order before purchasing new equipment.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have easy access to OEM parts. You might have to turn to less-than-trustworthy manufacturers to get what you need. However, working with TPM entails more access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians performing the repairs are experts in the field and may be more familiar with the equipment than in-house techs.
By working with a TPM company, you can avoid the high prices for post-EoL OEM services. TPM companies offer similar skill sets for much lower prices. In addition, the scope of work with TPM may be more expansive or personalized than what is offered by your OEM. You also get to push back the cost of new equipment. While an upgrade will still be necessary at some point, TPM can help keep it at bay.
TPM programs can focus on the needs of your company. They might be able to do a repair in a way that creates less downtime. Or they might offer more services that are better for you. Some TPM programs, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with some of the features of both OEM and TPM support if it fits your business.
