What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL QUANTUM 800/1600GB LTO TAPE FC-4GB (I500/I2000) (IBM)

As a If your products are old and not supported anymore, it can feel like you’re stuck. It can seem like you have to buy new products to keep getting support, even if that costs money and means losing the value of what you already have. If you keep your old equipment, you’ll have to figure out how to solve technical problems without help from the company that made your product. And it can be hard to be sure that your old hardware will work with new software and technologies as they come along. has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for QUANTUM 800/1600GB LTO TAPE FC-4GB (I500/I2000) (IBM)

Even if a manufacturer stops supporting a product, it doesn’t mean the product becomes useless. It still has a lot of its original value, and if it works for your company, you can keep using it. As long as there aren’t any big problems with the hardware or how it fits into your company’s infrastructure, you can keep using the product for longer by using TPM.
You may not have enough money to upgrade your hardware right now. That’s okay! You can still use your old hardware with the help of TPM. This will help you make a smooth transition to new hardware when you’re ready. You can also prepare for the upgrade by getting your finances in order first.
If you are fixing your computer yourself, you may not have access to the same parts that the manufacturer uses. This can be a problem because the parts may not work with your equipment. When you work with TPM, you have access to trusted parts that will work with your computer. Plus, the technicians who are repairing your computer are experts in this field and may know more about your computer than the in-house technicians.
Avoid the high prices for post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. They will charge much less for the same skill set. In addition, the work that is included 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.
OEMs specialize in their equipment, but TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. TPM programs might be able to do a repair in a way that creates less downtime for you or offer more services that can be better for you. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can even create a hybrid model with parts of OEM and TPM support if that’s what fits your business.
