Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for STORAGETEK 9710 10-SLOT TAPE DRIVE

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, it does not mean that the product is useless. The product still has a lot of its original value. If the product works for your company, it is good to keep using it. As long as there are no big problems with the hardware or with how it fits into your company’s infrastructure, you can use the product for a longer time by using TPM.
You may not have enough extra money to buy new hardware right now. You also don’t want to be rushed into a decision. You can keep using your old hardware with the help of TPM. When you’re ready, you can upgrade and prepare for the transition by getting your finances in order.
If you are working on hardware yourself, you may not have access to the same parts that the manufacturer does. This can be a problem if you need to fix the hardware. You can work with TPM to get access to parts that are trusted and will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who will be repairing the hardware are experts in this field. They may know more about your equipment than in-house techs do.
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, TPM companies may offer a more expanded or 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.
OEM companies specialize in making equipment. TPM programs focus on the needs of a company. They might be able to do a repair that causes less downtime or offer more services for a better price. Some TPM options let you purchase only the services you need. You can even create a hybrid model with some elements of OEM and TPM support if that works for your business.
