What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

When it comes to managing your data center and IT infrastructure, choosing the right maintenance provider can be a game-changer. A popular option to consider is Third-Party Maintenance (TPM) services. TPM providers offer cost-effective support and extend the life of your hardware, saving you both time and money. Learn more about the advantages of TPM, the types of providers available, and how to choose the best TPM provider for your organization in this comprehensive article.

While you must know that a Third-party Maintenance Service can bring immense savings to your Organization, making the switch at the right time matters. Benefits of Third-party Maintenance include Longer Equipment Life, Greater Flexibility in Service Level Agreements (SLAs), saving Money on Maintenance and so on. However, reaping the rewards when it is genuinely value adding is crucial. There can be certain situations in which making the switch would make the most sense. If you find your Company in any one of these situations, you can start considering TPM Services.

The purpose of Third-party Maintenance

In crucial Internal Data Center Infrastructures, the Server, Storage and Network Equipment will eventually reach its limit and stop operating with optimum efficiency. However, this limit is realized many years after EOL announcements in most scenarios. You have a few options when Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) stop selling and servicing your Equipment after EOL/EOSL. These options are : Refresh Old Hardware, Continue using them without Support, Renew Equipment Warranty with the OEM or move to the Cloud. Each of these options entails its Costs and Risks. However, the real issue arises when none of these Strategies is practical for the Business. This is where Third-party Maintenance comes to the rescue. TPM Strategies free your Equipment from OEM's mandated Upgrade and expensive post-warranty charges. Below are the situations when you should consider TPM as a viable alternative to conventional Maintenance.

When to transition to Third-party Maintenance

Unwarranted Hardware Refresh Cycle : The primary agenda of OEMs is technological advancement. They continue to put out new versions of Hardware even if the previous versions are in use. With more focus on selling new equipment instead of maintaining the aged, Data Centers are forced to upgrade Equipment. However, with TPM, this outcome has changed over time. TPMs provide Post-warranty Services for your Data Center to extend its Longevity. While refreshing Infrastructure can cost Millions, TPMs offer Equipment Maintenance that can result in approx 70% savings on IT Budget.

Expensive OEM Post-warranty Services : OEMs conveniently raise Maintenance Fees annually to fuel new Product Development to gain Profit Margins. With prices increasing by at least 15% per annum, Companies are forced to buy new Equipment as it seems like a more viable option. This strategy of making upgrades more attractive results in burning a hole in your pocket. However, the Post-warranty Services offered by TPMs are more economical with no hidden costs and unnecessary price hikes.

Short-term Coverage before Cloud Migration : Many Organizations transfer to the Cloud to avoid costly Hardware Maintenance. While doing so, they move Data to temporary Storage, which must be as secure as the Cloud. The provision of temporary coverage becomes extremely difficult as OEM SLAs are very rigid, and the shortest available Agreement Term is 12 Months. On the other hand, TPM Service Agreements start with in a month. With thomastech, you get a flexible security system for Data Transfer so that you can focus on implementing Cloud Strategies instead.
