Find Lower-Cost STK Support from Independent StorageTek Experts

There are many reasons to be considering an independent hardware maintenance provider for the StorageTek hardware your company continues to rely upon. First and foremost, the maintenance costs for any EoL or EoS storage hardware asset will almost always run 60-80% lower than the same level of service from the manufacturer. Is it possible to build out a Hybrid Hardware Maintenance model in which in-warranty items are supported by the OEM and post-warranty storage is supported by an independent? Absolutely!

How great would it be if you could find an independent hardware maintenance provider whose service delivery and engineering leadership had previously held leadership positions at StorageTek? That’s XSi – you should get to know us!
