Sun and StorageTek Tape Library Overview
|Prior to the acquisition by Sun of StorageTek, Sun had its own series of tape library products. After buying Sun and the subsequent acquisition by Oracle, StorageTek products have been integrated into the tape line up. StorageTek have had the leading market position in mainframe tape back up for many years. |
Parts, Upgrades and Complete Sun and StorageTek Tape LibrariesDespite some systems in the Sun and StorageTek Tape Libraries range being beyond their last shipment date from Sun/StorageTek/Oracle, Com-Com continue to supply parts, upgrades and complete servers extending the life of equipment, providing greater ROI and freedom for customers to decide their own budgetary and migration timetables.
With a large inventory of quality Sun and StorageTek tape library hardware, Com-Com offer immediate availability for most upgrades and even complete systems. Qualified sales and engineering professionals can provide help with everything from specification through to installation, configuration and on-going support.
Hardware and Software Maintenance for Sun and StorageTek Tape LibrariesWith Premier Support for Hardware from Oracle having ended for some some models and with other models going 'end of life' over coming years (see table below for dates by model) planning now to ensure continuity of support is essential. Com-Com offer a high quality alternative support option and with typically 40% off Oracle support costs, the savings from Com-Com are very attractive as well...
We've done the logistics planning, so you can continue to use your systems and work to your own timescales from replacement/migration. We are supporting StorageTek Disk Storage already and are committing to extend support on certain models into the 2020s.
