Benefits of Third Party Maintenance for SUN StorageTek 6/15TB LTO TAPE FC-8GB IBM (SL3000)

Even if a manufacturer stops supporting a product, the product still has value. The product might not work as well as it used to, but if it still works for your company, you can keep using it by using TPM. As long as there aren’t any big problems with the hardware or how it works in your company’s infrastructure, you can keep the product going for a while on its original investment.
Maybe your hardware is going to reach its End of Service Life soon, but your company doesn’t have much extra money to spend on upgrades. You have your own business to run and you don’t want to be rushed into a decision. You can continue using your existing equipment with the help of TPM. This will let you upgrade when you’re ready, 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 easy access to the original parts. You may have to get parts from less-than-trustworthy manufacturers. However, if you work with TPM, you will have access to trusted parts that will work with your equipment. Plus, the technicians who will be repairing your hardware are experts in this field and may be more familiar with your equipment than in-house technicians.
If you want to save money on post-EoL OEM services, you should work with a TPM company. TPM companies have lower prices and the same skill set as OEMs. You can also get more work done for less money, and you can push back the cost of new equipment. 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 on what your company needs. For example, a TPM program might be able to repair equipment quickly so there is little down time. Or, TPM might offer more services that can save you money. Some TPM programs, like NorthSmart, let you only buy the services you need. You can also choose a hybrid model that combines aspects of OEM and TPM support if it fits your business better.
