What Can Your Organization Do With EoL or EoSL QUANTUM 800/1600GB LTO TAPE FC-4GB (IBM) (I500I2000)

As a If your products are considered EoL or EoSL, you might feel like you are in a difficult situation. It might seem like you need to buy 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 old equipment, you will have to go without support from the OEM. This can be difficult because you will not have help when there are technical difficulties or breakdowns. And it can be hard to be confident that your old hardware will work with new software and technology as they come out. has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for QUANTUM 800/1600GB LTO TAPE FC-4GB (IBM) (I500I2000)

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still has a lot of its original value, and if the product works for your company, it is convenient to keep
If you don’t have a lot of money to spend on new hardware, you can still use your old hardware with the help of TPM. You can wait until you’re ready to upgrade, and you can prepare for the transition by getting your finances in order. When you’re ready, you can buy new hardware that will work with your old equipment.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you might not be able to get OEM parts. This can be a problem because non-OEM parts may not work with your equipment. A better option might be to work with TPM. TPM has access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who perform the repairs are experts in this field and may know more about your 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. In addition, the scope of work offered by TPM companies 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 are companies that specialize in a certain type of equipment. However, TPM programs (like NorthSmart) can offer more services that are specific to your needs. For example, they may be able to fix the equipment in a way that causes less downtime or offer more services for a better price. You can also choose to buy only the services you need from a TPM program. You can even create a hybrid model that includes some elements of both OEM and TPM support if it fits your business better.
