What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL IBM TOTALSTORAGE 3494 1/2X3490-F1A TAPE LIBRARY

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

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for IBM TOTALSTORAGE 3494 1/2X3490-F1A TAPE LIBRARY

Even if a manufacturer stops providing support for a product, the product is still valuable. It usually still works well, and it is more convenient to keep using it if it does work. 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 don’t have a lot of extra money to spend, but your hardware is about to reach its end-of-life, you can still upgrade. You can use TPM to help you manage your existing hardware and upgrade when you’re ready. You can plan for the transition and make sure you have the money saved up before buying new equipment.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have easy access to the original parts. You may have to find less-than-trustworthy manufacturers to get what you need. However, working with TPM will give you access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who will be performing the repairs are experts in this field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
You don’t have to pay a lot for post-EoL OEM services. Work with a TPM company instead. They offer similar skills at a much lower price. You may also get more services with TPM than you would from your OEM. Plus, you can push back the cost of new equipment by working with TPM. An upgrade will still be necessary at some point, but TPM can help delay it.
OEMs specialize in their own equipment, but 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 offer more services that can save you money. Some TPM programs, like NorthSmart, let you buy only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with some elements of OEM and TPM support if that’s what works for your business.
