Increase the lifetime of your server or storage hardware without signing a maintenance contract
You still have an old Netapp storage or a ProLiant server that is outdated. You would like to continue to run this hardware, because maybe the current budget does not include the purchase of new replacement hardware. Maybe you have already planned your hardware replacement, but you realize that the migration project will take longer than expected. However, they do not want to buy a maintenance contract for the transition period. That would be far too exaggerated and also too expensive. You don’t know how long you will be using the old hardware, and with a maintenance contract you would be making a commitment that is difficult to explain to your boss.
Interim solution up until migration
You are looking for an interim solution until your migration project is completed and do not want to buy hardware maintenance. A pure spare parts service is enough for you. Then ask for our server and storage spare parts service.
Many IT managers face this problem. After five years at the latest, the server hardware must be replaced. With storage hardware it can also be seven years. But by that time at the latest, the maintenance for the storage is more expensive than the new acquisition including five years of maintenance. Migration therefore makes economic sense. Unfortunately, such migrations are not only an economic matter, because mission-critical data and applications are stored on the central IT systems. The transfer of the data to a new IT infrastructure must be planned and tested very carefully. Old and new equipment is set up in parallel and converted database by database or application by application. Minor and major compatibility problems are commonplace and can only be solved step by step. Even though most migration problems can be solved by IT experts without any problems, they simply take time.
For this very reason, hardware lifecycle and migration projects are unpredictable and almost always take longer than planned. But what do you do if the maintenance of the old machine has already expired, but the migration has not yet been completed? You now have the choice to extend the maintenance for another year, or take the risk and complete the migration with no maintenance. Even if you have the know-how and resources to repair the hardware on your own, you don’t know if and where you can get all the spare parts for a repair.
