Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for StorageTek T10000A FC-4GB TAPE MIXED WAVE (SL8500)

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still has a lot of its original value. If the product works for your company, it is more 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.
Your company might not have enough extra money to spend on upgrading hardware. You also have your own business to run, which takes up time and you don’t want to be rushed into a decision. Using TPM, you can continue using your existing hardware until you’re ready to upgrade. You can prepare for the transition and have your finances in order before purchasing new equipment.
If you are repairing your own hardware, you may not have access to the same parts that the manufacturer does. In this case, you may need to find a less-trusted manufacturer to get the parts you need. However, working with TPM will give you access to more trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Additionally, the technicians who are performing the repairs will be 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 have lower prices and the same skill set as OEMs. 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 with TPM. Although you will still need to upgrade at some point, using a TPM company can help delay that expense.
While an OEM specializes in their equipment, TPM programs can focus more on the needs of your company. They might be able to do a repair that creates less downtime or offer more services for a better price. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you purchase only the services you need. You can even create a hybrid model with parts of OEM and TPM support if that’s what fits your business.
