Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for StorageTek 400/800GB LTO TAPE FC-4GB IBM (L5500)

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, it doesn’t mean the product suddenly becomes useless. It still has a lot of its original value. If the product works for your company, you can keep using it. As long as there aren’t any big problems with the hardware or how it fits into your company’s infrastructure, you can keep using it for a while by using TPM.
If you don’t have a lot of money to spend on new hardware, you can still use your old hardware with the help of TPM. That way, you can take your time and upgrade when you’re ready. You can also prepare for the transition by getting your finances in order.
If you are repairing your own hardware, you may not have access to the same parts that the manufacturer uses. This can be a problem because the parts may not be as reliable. However, if you work with TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that are known to 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 technicians.
If you want to avoid paying sky-high prices for post-EoL OEM services, you should work with a TPM company. TPM companies usually offer similar skills at a much lower cost. Plus, with TPM, you may get more services included in the deal or a more personalized service than what your OEM offers. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM company. Although an upgrade will be necessary at some point, using a TPM company can help delay it.
OEMs specialize in their equipment, but TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. They might be able to do a repair that creates less downtime for you or offer more services that work better for you. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you buy only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with some of the features of OEM and TPM support if that works better for your business.
