Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for STORAGETEK 4480 18-TRACK TAPE DRIVE

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still has a lot of its original value, and if it works for your company, it is convenient to keep using it. As long as there aren’t any big issues with the hardware or problems with its place in your company’s infrastructure, you can keep using the product for longer by using TPM.
You may be wondering if you should upgrade your hardware soon. But maybe you don’t have the money right now or you don’t want to be rushed into a decision. That’s okay! You can still use your existing hardware with the help of TPM. That way, you can upgrade when you’re ready and prepared. You can make sure you have the money saved up before purchasing new equipment.
If you’re repairing your own hardware, you may not have access to the original manufacturer’s parts. 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 will be performing the repairs are experts in this field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
By working with a TPM company, you can avoid paying high prices for post-EoL OEM services. TPM companies offer similar skill sets but at much lower prices. In addition, the scope of work may be more expansive or personalized than what is offered by your OEM. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by using a TPM company. While an upgrade will still be necessary at some point, using a TPM company can help delay it.
OEMs specialize in their equipment, but TPM programs can focus on the needs of your company. Sometimes a TPM program can repair something in a way that creates less down time for you or offer more services that are better for your company. Some TPM programs, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can also create a hybrid model with parts of the OEM and TPM support if it fits your business better.
