Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for SUN L5500/L6000 20/40GB 9940B FC TAPE DRIVE (380-0805)

When a manufacturer stops supporting a product, that product is not suddenly useless. It still has most of its original value, and it can be useful if it works for your company. As long as there aren’t any glaring issues with the hardware or problems with its place in your company’s infrastructure, you can keep using the product for longer by using TPM.
You may not have enough money to upgrade your hardware right now. That’s ok! You can use TPM to help you continue using your old hardware. When you’re ready, you can upgrade slowly and prepare for it financially.
If you are working on the hardware yourself, you may not have access to the same parts that the manufacturer uses. This can be a problem because the parts may not work with your equipment. Working with TPM means having access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who are 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 skills at a much lower price. They can also do more work for you than an OEM would. You can also push back the cost of new equipment by working with a TPM company. An upgrade will still be necessary at some point, but TPM can help delay it.
OEMs specialize in making equipment. But TPM programs can focus more on what your company needs. They might be able to do a repair that causes little downtime or offer more services for a better price. Some TPM options, like NorthSmart, let you buy only the services you need. You can also mix and match OEM and TPM support if that’s what works best for your business.
