Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for StorageTek T10000A FICON FG-2GB DRIVE LW (SL8500)

Even if a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the equipment is not suddenly useless. It still has most 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 continue to use the product for a longer time by using TPM.
If your hardware is going to reach its End of Service Life soon and your company doesn’t have much extra capital 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 first.
If you are repairing your hardware yourself, you may not have access to the original manufacturer’s parts. In this case, you may need to find less-than-reliable manufacturers to get the parts you need. However, working with TPM will give you access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians 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. They offer similar skills for lower prices. In addition, the work that TPM does may be more extensive and personalized than what your OEM offers. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM company. Although you will still need to upgrade at some point, TPM can help delay that cost.
OEMs are experts in equipment, but TPM programs can offer more services that are specific to your company. TPM programs might be able to do a repair in a way that causes as little downtime as possible, or offer more services that can save you money. Some TPM options, 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 is what fits your business.
