Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for StorageTek 2500/6250GB LTO TAPE FC-8GB IBM (SL8500)

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still maintains much of its original value, and if the product works for your company, it is convenient to keep using it. However, if there are any glaring issues with the hardware or problems with its place in your company’s infrastructure, you might need to find a new product. In that case, you can stretch your initial investment and keep the product working longer with TPM.
If you don’t want to upgrade your hardware right now, you can use TPM to help you. You can wait until you’re ready and have the money to buy new equipment. You can also prepare for the transition before upgrading.
If you are working on repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have access to OEM parts. You might have to get parts from less-than-trustworthy manufacturers. However, if you work with TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who are repairing your hardware are experts in the field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
Working with a TPM company can help you avoid high prices for post-EoL OEM services. TPM companies offer similar skills at a much lower cost. In addition, they may offer a more expansive or personalized scope of work than your OEM. 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.
OEMs specialize in making equipment, while TPM programs focus on the needs of a company. TPM programs might be able to fix a problem quickly so there is little downtime for your business. They might also offer more services that can save your business money. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with some features of OEM and TPM support if that’s what works best for your company.
