Hitachi Warranty Extension & Hardware Support Services

When it comes to third party Hitachi maintenance and support, Quest International should be your vendor of choice. If you are at the end of your original Hitachi warranty and are trying to determine whether to renew your contract with Hitachi, or if you are working to discover how you will support your End of Service Life (EOSL) Hitachi equipment, you should speak with the experts at Quest. Our Hitachi extended maintenance contracts provide you with the highest level of support you would expect from the original manufacturer combined with the cost savings you should expect from a third party provider. Quest also provides aftermarket hardware support of other Host Systems like like EMC, NetApp, HP, SUN Oracle, IBM, and Dell.

Quest International enables users of Hitachi data storage equipment to maximize their Return on Investment by managing the cost of ownership with a Hitachi extended warranty. With Quest, you can extend the service life of your hardware with a Hitachi warranty extension or maintenance contract – and achieve significant savings over the OEM's extended warranty contract. In the past, restrictive post warranty service pricing and end of life dates may have put serious constraints on your ability to get the maximum value out of the Hitachi hardware you are currently using. You may have even been forced into replacing your current Hitachi IT equipment before you are ready to refresh your systems.

Your Hitachi warranty covered equipment should not dictate the End of Life of your Hitachi hardware.

By increasing your Hitachi hardware maintenance, you increase your return on investment and reduce additional capital expenditures. Take advantage of Quest's Global Hitachi hardware maintenance solution, maximize your return on investment, and use your financial resources more effectively.
