Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for StorageTek 200/400GB LTO TAPE FC-2GB HPE (SL8500)

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, that product is not suddenly useless. It still has many of its original features and it can be convenient to keep using it if it works for your company. 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 the product working longer with TPM.
If your hardware is going to reach its End of Service Life soon, and your company doesn’t have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrades, you can choose to continue using your existing equipment with the help of TPM. This will allow you to take your time and prepare for the transition before purchasing new equipment. You can also keep your finances in order during this time.
If you are fixing your own hardware, you may not have access to the same parts that the manufacturer uses. This can be a problem because the part may not work with your equipment. You can solve this problem by working with TPM. They have access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who fix the equipment are experts in their field and may know more about your equipment than in-house technicians do.
Save money on post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. They offer similar skills at a much lower price. Plus, the scope of work with TPM may be more expansive or personalized than what your OEM offers. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM company. While an upgrade will still be necessary at some point, TPM can help delay it.
TPM programs can focus on the needs of your company. They might be able to do a repair that causes less down time or offer more services for a better price. Some TPM programs, like NorthSmart, let you buy only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with parts of OEM and TPM support if that fits your business better.
