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

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still has a lot of its original value, and it can still be useful 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 using it for longer by using TPM.
If you don’t have much extra money to spend on upgrading your hardware, you can still use your old hardware with the help of TPM. You can wait until you’re ready to upgrade, and you can prepare for the transition by getting your finances in order. When you’re ready, you can buy new equipment.
If you are working on your own hardware, you may not have access to the official parts from the manufacturer. In this case, you might need to find less-than-reliable manufacturers in order to get what you need. 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.
You can save money on post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. TPM companies have lower prices and the same skill set as OEMs. 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. Although an upgrade will be necessary at some point, TPM can help delay it.
TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. They might be able to do a repair that causes less downtime or offer more services for a better price. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with elements of OEM and TPM support if that’s what your business needs.
