Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for StorageTek 800/1600GB LTO TAPE FC-4GB IBM (L180/L700)

If a manufacturer stops offering support for 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 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 reaching its end-of-service life and your company doesn’t have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrades, you don’t need to worry. You can continue using your existing equipment with the help of TPM. That way, you can choose when to upgrade and you can prepare for the transition by getting your finances in order. When you’re ready, you can then purchase new equipment.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have easy access to parts from the original manufacturer. This can be a problem, because the quality of the parts may not be as good. You can solve this problem by working with TPM instead. TPM has access to high-quality 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.
You can save money on post-EoL OEM services by working with a TPM company. TPM companies offer similar services for much lower prices. They may also 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 keep it at bay.
OEMs specialize in making specific types of equipment. TPM programs, like NorthSmart, can focus on the needs of your company. They might be able to repair equipment in a way that creates as little downtime as possible or offer more encompassing services that can provide a better deal. Some TPM options let you purchase only the services you need. You can even create a hybrid model with elements of OEM and TPM support if that’s what fits your business.
