Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for StorageTek 800/1600GB LTO TAPE FC-4GB HPE (SL8500)

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, it doesn’t mean that the product suddenly becomes 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 glaring issues with the hardware or problems with its place in your company’s infrastructure, you can stretch your initial investment and keep the product working longer with TPM.
If your hardware is about to reach its end of service life and your company doesn’t have much extra money to spend on upgrades, don’t worry. You can continue using your existing equipment with the help of TPM. This will allow you to upgrade when you’re ready, which will give you time to prepare for the transition and get your finances in order.
If you are fixing your hardware yourself, you may not have access to the original 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 repairing your equipment are experts in their field and may be more familiar with it than in-house technicians.
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, with TPM you may get more work done or a more personal service than what your OEM offers. 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.
OEMs specialize in specific types of equipment, but TPM programs can offer more services that are tailored to your company. They might be able to fix the problem quickly so your company has less down time. Or, they might offer a package that includes more services for a better price. Some TPM programs, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can even create a hybrid model with some aspects of OEM and TPM support if that’s what works best for your business.
