Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for StorageTek 200/400GB LTO TAPE FC-2GB IBM (SL500)

When a manufacturer stops providing support for 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 convenient to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any problems with the hardware or how it fits into your company’s infrastructure, you can keep the product working longer with TPM.
If you don’t have much extra money to spend on new hardware, but your old hardware is about to reach its End of Service Life, you can choose to keep using your old hardware with the help of TPM. This will help you prepare for the transition and get your finances in order before buying new equipment. You can choose when to upgrade, so you won’t feel rushed into a decision.
If you are fixing your computer hardware yourself, you may not have access to the same quality parts as the experts. This can be a problem because these parts may not work with your equipment. However, if you use TPM, you will have access to high-quality parts that are guaranteed to work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who perform the repairs will be experts in their field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
You can save money on post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. They have lower prices and the same skill set. Plus, you may get more services with TPM than you would from your OEM. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM company. An upgrade will still be necessary at some point, but TPM can help delay it.
There are two different types of companies when it comes to maintenance: OEM and TPM. OEM specializes in a certain kind of equipment, while TPM focuses on the needs of the company. TPM might be able to do a repair in a way that creates less downtime for your business or offer more services that can save you money. Some companies, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with elements of both OEM and TPM support if that’s what works best for your company.
