If you can’t afford expensive upgrades, you should create a plan for your EOSL and EOL equipment so your data center can keep running smoothly. has announced EOSL on all

Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for StorageTek 1600/3200TB LTO TAPE FC-8GB HPE (SL8500)

Even if a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not useless. It still has a lot of its original value. If the product works for your company, it is good to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any big problems with the hardware or how it works in your company’s infrastructure, you can keep using it for a while by using TPM.
You may not have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrading your hardware right now. That’s okay! You can still use your existing hardware with the help of TPM. This will allow you to choose when you want to upgrade, and you can prepare for the transition by getting your finances in order. When you’re ready, you can purchase new equipment without feeling rushed.
If you are fixing your computer or other hardware yourself, you may not have access to parts from the original manufacturer. This can be a problem because the parts may not work with your equipment. Working with TPM means having access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who will be repairing your equipment are experts in this field and may know more about it than in-house technicians.
If you want to avoid paying high prices for post-EoL OEM services, you can work with a TPM company. TPM companies offer similar skills at a much lower price. Plus, they may offer more services than your OEM. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM company. While an upgrade will be necessary at some point, using a TPM company can help delay it.
OEMs are experts in their equipment, but TPM programs can better meet the needs of your company. TPMs might be able to repair your equipment quickly so there is less downtime. They might also offer more services that can save you money. Some TPMs, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can even create a hybrid model with some of the features of an OEM and a TPM.
