Data Center Maintenance FAQ
Third-party maintenance (TPM) is an alternative solution to traditional Cisco, Dell EMC, HPE, IBM and other OEM maintenance options. You are able to use TPM for warranty, post-warranty, gap and end of life (EOL) and end of support life (EOSL) for your server, storage, network and software support. Third-party support can help you significantly reduce maintenance spending, strategically extend hardware lifecycles, maintain productivity and more.
