Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for STORAGETEK 9840 ESCON TAPE DRIVE (L180/L700)

If a manufacturer stops supporting a product, that product 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 the product working longer by using TPM.
If you don’t have a lot of extra money to spend on upgrades, you can still use your existing hardware with the help of TPM. That way, you can upgrade at your own pace and when you’re ready. You can prepare for the transition by saving up money and by making sure that your schedule will allow for the upgrade.
If you are repairing your own hardware, you may not have access to the same parts that the manufacturer uses. This can be a problem because the parts may not be as trustworthy. However, if you work with TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who are repairing your hardware are experts in their field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house techs.
Use a TPM company to save money on post-EoL OEM services. TPM companies have lower prices and the same skill set as OEMs. You can also get more work done for less with a TPM company. Plus, you can push back the cost of new equipment. An upgrade will still be necessary at some point, but TPM can help delay it.
TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. They might be able to do a repair in a way that creates as little downtime as possible or offer more encompassing services that can provide a better deal. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, 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.
