What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL NETAPP AFFA220 FLASH ARRAY

As a If your products are determined to be End-of-Life or End-of-Service Life, you may feel like you have to get a new product to continue receiving support. But this isn’t always the case. You can keep your equipment if you don’t receive OEM support. However, this means you will have to face technical difficulties and breakdowns on your own and there is no guarantee that your hardware will work with new software and technology as it becomes available. has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for NETAPP AFFA220 FLASH ARRAY

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still has most 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 keep using the product for longer by using TPM.
Your business might reach its End of Service Life at a time when your company doesn’t have much extra money to spend on upgrades. You have your own business to run and your schedule to balance. Plus, you don’t want to be rushed into a hasty decision because you feel like you need new hardware. By continuing to use your existing equipment with the help of TPM, you can choose when you’re ready to upgrade. You can prepare for the transition and have your finances in order before purchasing new equipment.
If you are fixing the hardware yourself, you may not have access to the original parts. This may mean that you have to get parts from a less-than-reliable manufacturer. However, if you work with TPM, you will have 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 of money for post-EoL OEM services. You can work with a TPM company and save a lot of money. TPM companies have the same skill set as OEMs, but they charge less. Plus, with TPM you may get more services or a more personalised service than what your OEM offers. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by using TPM. Although you will still need to upgrade at some point, using TPM can help delay that cost.
Even though OEMs specialize in their equipment, TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. They might be able to do a repair that avoids any downtime or offer more complete services that are less expensive. Some TPM options, 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.
