Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for StorageTek 200/400GB LTO TAPE FC-2GB IBM (L5500)

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, it doesn’t become 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 system, you can keep using the product for a while by using TPM.
If you don’t have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrades, you can still use your existing hardware with the help of TPM. You can upgrade when you’re ready and have your finances in order. This will help you prepare for the transition.
If you are fixing your own hardware, you may not have access to parts from the original manufacturer. This can be a problem because the replacements may not be trustworthy. However, if you work with TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who perform the repairs will be experts in this field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
If you want to avoid paying high prices for post-EoL OEM services, you can work with a TPM company. They will provide the same level of service as an OEM, but for a much lower price. Plus, the TPM company may offer a more expansive or personalized scope of work than your OEM did. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM company. Although you will still need to upgrade at some point, using a TPM company can help delay that expense.
OEMs specialize in their equipment, but TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. TPMs might be able to fix a problem quickly so there is little downtime or offer more services that can save you money. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you buy only the services you need. You can also combine different types of support if it fits your company better.
