Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for IBM 8X73GB 15K DISK SSA160 (FC 2144)

When a manufacturer stops providing support for a product, it doesn’t mean that the product becomes useless. It still has a lot of its original value, and 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 your hardware is reaching its end of service life and your company doesn’t have much extra money to spend on upgrades, don’t worry. You can continue to use your existing equipment with the help of TPM. That way, you can choose when to upgrade and you can prepare for the transition by getting your finances in order first.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have access to OEM parts. 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 trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who perform the repairs are experts in this field and may be more familiar with the equipment than in-house techs.
You can save money on post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. TPM companies have lower prices and the same skill set as OEMs. You can also get more work done for less with a TPM company. Plus, you can push back the cost of new equipment by using a TPM company. An upgrade will still be necessary at some point, but using a TPM company can help delay it.
OEMs specialize in their equipment, but TPM programs can focus on the needs of your company. TPM programs might be able to do a repair that creates less down time for you or offer more services that are better for you. Some TPMs, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with some elements of OEM and TPM support if it fits your business better.
