What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL IBM 14-SLOT DISK ENCLOSURE FC-2GB (EXP710)

As a If your products are considered EoL or EoSL, you might feel like you are in a difficult situation. It can seem like you have to get new products if you want to keep getting support from the company. But this can be expensive and it also means losing the value of your old hardware. If you keep your equipment, you will have to proceed without help from the company. But how will you deal with technical difficulties or breakdowns? And how can you be confident that your hardware will work properly as new software, technology and security concerns arise? has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for IBM 14-SLOT DISK ENCLOSURE FC-2GB (EXP710)

Even if a manufacturer stops supporting a product, it doesn’t mean the product is suddenly useless. Most of the original value still exists, and if the product still works for your company, it can be convenient to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any glaring issues with the hardware and it still fits into your company’s infrastructure, you can stretch your initial investment by using TPM.
If your hardware is about to reach its end-of-service life (EoSL) and your company doesn’t have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrades, you don’t need to worry. You can continue using your existing equipment with the help of TPM and upgrade when you’re ready. You can prepare for the transition and have your finances in order before purchasing new equipment.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have access to the same parts that the manufacturer uses. This can be a problem because the parts from other manufacturers may not be as reliable. However, if you work with TPM, you will have access to more trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who are repairing your hardware are experts in this field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
Save money on post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. They offer lower prices and the same skill set as OEMs, but without charging a premium. 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 can offer services that help keep your equipment running, with as little downtime as possible. If you don’t need a full TPM program, you can choose individual services from companies like NorthSmart. You can also create a hybrid model that combines aspects of both OEM and TPM support.
