IBM Server Maintenance & Storage Maintenance

Save 30% - 40% off third-party IBM hardware maintenance contracts.

World-Class IBM Support and Maintenance

With Park Place Technologies, you can get IBM hardware support past its warranty or end of service life and get direct access to our technical support and portal. IBM third-party maintenance means lengthening your equipment’s useful life by providing maintenance beyond the IBM end of service set by the OEM.

IBM’s business model has shifted to become more services-oriented. But when it comes to server, storage, and networking hardware, Big Blue is still an equipment manufacturer. Its interests are in researching, developing, marketing, and selling IT hardware – not IBM warranty renewals or post-warranty support. IBM certainly benefits from the high margins inherent in maintenance contracts. But, they benefit all the more when a customer swaps out older equipment after its IBM EOS, buys new gear, and then puts a maintenance contract on the new purchase.

This leads IBM to do business one way. Support-focused third party hardware maintenance providers, such as Park Place Technologies, do business another.
