  • World Data Products Now Offering Cloud Solutions!

    World Data Products can help your company save as much as 50% compared to the leading metered Cloud Service Providers.

    photo of data center World Data Products Now Offering Cloud Solutions

    IT departments move some or all of their IT infrastructure to the Cloud for several reasons: to maintain high service levels, manage costs, and utilize the flexibility to scale up or down as needed without a budget approval process. However, new cloud customers with metered services have discovered variable monthly costs are not easily managed.

    Why Are Fixed Costs So Important?

    Metered Cloud service costs are among the most unpredictable business expenses today. Customers of metered services find that they have very little control over what the invoice will look like from month to month. What we do is ‘fix’ Cloud costs so that there are no surprises. Instead, you’ll simply enjoy the cost savings that attract so many companies to the Cloud in the first place. Whether public, private, or hybrid Cloud, our ‘fixed-cost’ Cloud model locks in the savings consistently month after month.

     Fixed Cost Cloud Benefits

    • Predictable managed costs
    • No longer have to manage on-site hardware
    • Scale up and down as needed
    • Maintain high service level
    • Meet requirements for compliance and privacy

  • Buying Used Server Racks

    This post provides some tips on available features and buying used server racks.

    2019 Inventory Note: We have a large inventory of server racks at this time and are not looking to buy individual racks. We are interested in racks full of servers!

    Server Rack Sizes and Features? Customers value a server rack that is well built, has good cable management, ventilation, and can be secured. Data center server racks come in many sizes, 36U and 42U are common, with 42U likely being the most common height. Cabinet features vary by manufacturer and can include a built-in PDU for power distribution and surge protection, cable management, locking doors, adjustable mounting solutions, casters, leveling feet, and secure side panels depending on the security requirements or cooling and ventilation needs of the hardware.

    Warranty? Like most refurbished products, any used server rack that you purchase should come with a warranty. Reputable hardware resellers stand behind their products, and nothing conveys confidence in the quality of a product like a warranty.

    Maintenance Plan? Some used server racks are eligible for OEM and third party maintenance.

    Return on Investment? Buying previously owned, or refurbished IT hardware can be a great way to leverage your IT budget. Getting nearly the same quality as new but spending only a fraction of the cost is a way to dramatically lower the total cost of ownership.

    Availability? Our inventory of used server racks is constantly changing, give us a call at 888-210-7636 or Contact one of our IT Hardware Specialists today to discuss your requirements or ask further questions. If you have surplus-new, or used servers to sell, please use our Sell Hardware form and let us know what you are looking to sell.

  • The Best Way to Dispose of Used Computer Tape

    Used Computer Tape?Disposal of LTO, 3592, and other backup tapes

    Not using the tape library anymore? Or, have obsolete tapes from an older magnetic tape technology? You're not alone. As data centers move to newer cartridge formats or move away from tape storage entirely, managers responsible for IT Asset Disposition (ITAD) must choose from options including data eradication, recycling, or destruction. Every organization has policies to keep its data safe, and World Data Products has the tape library services to accommodate those data security requirements.

    What are the best options in 2019 for data eradication or data destruction?

    Used Tape Buyback Sell your tape library to World Data Products. Our world-class tape facility uses a total data eradication process, erasing the tapes end to end. We also test to verify that every tape will be free of permanent and gross errors. This recycled media becomes certified tape that has a higher reliability than new tape because every tape is tested 100% end to end.

    Data Erasure or Destruction World Data Products provides on-site and off-site data destruction services. We have a long track record of working with major financial and government institutions. We can coordinate secure transportation and will provide a detailed plan and a certificate of destruction.

    To learn more about computer tape buyback, on-site or off-site data erasure or destruction, call 888-210-7636 and ask for tape services, or use this form to request a complimentary, no obligation consultation with a Certified Computer Tape Specialist today!

  • The Difference Between Used and Refurbished Servers

    The Difference Between Used and Refurbished ServersAre you in the market to buy servers for your organization?  Not sure what the difference is between "used servers" and "refurbished servers"? You are in luck!

    Let's explore the differences between used and refurbished servers, and IT hardware in general.

    Refurbished servers provide:

    • Guaranteed performance. A refurbished server has likely been built from the chassis up with your configuration. Most importantly, each component in the server build has been tested for performance and will include a warranty. If the server includes drives, all refurbished drives from World Data Products are wiped and tested, not just reformatted.
    • Factory settings. During the refurbishment process, servers are returned to the original factory settings so they perform like new. A used server may or may not have been returned to the original factory settings.
    • Guaranteed authenticity. World Data Products uses authentic OEM components including drives, memory, power supplies, network cards, etc. When you buy a server from us, all of the components are designed for that server.
    • Good condition. Less important but nice to have is a "like new" physical condition. If you purchase a refurbished server, you're likely to receive a product that looks close to brand new. Refurbished servers are cleaned, even touched up if necessary.
    • Optional maintenance programs. Quality refurbished servers may be eligible for OEM or third party maintenance.

    Used servers:  With used servers, you never know what you're going to get. It’s possible to get a used piece of equipment that looks good and works, but there is no guarantee that the item has been tested, and no guarantee that the components are 100% compatible for that model. A used server may or may not have a warranty.

  • What are ITAD services?

    What are ITAD Services?

    ITAD stands for IT Asset Disposition. It is also called IT Asset Disposal and when there is little or no value left, Electronics Recycling.

    Many companies refresh their data center with networking or server upgrades every three to four years. While not brand new, used IT hardware often has a useful life of six or more years. The goal of ITAD is to get some additional return on investment for those IT assets. That is where we come in! Part of our business is to buy pre-owned IT hardware, test it thoroughly, clean it, replace any missing parts from the original configuration, restore cosmetic condition if needed, and resell it with a warranty as refurbished product so it can be used for another few years.

    Since 1987, World Data Products has been providing ITAD services for companies with data centers that need to sell surplus or used networking equipment and servers. We also buy used storage arrays and enclosures, computer tape, drives, and even entire tape libraries. Plus, we make the process easy!

    Here is how our ITAD process works:

    • You send an equipment list by uploading a file or pasting the text into our Sell Surplus Hardware form.
    • We send an offer or contact you with any questions.
    • Once there is an agreement on the equipment list and package price, we coordinate and pay for shipping to our facility.
    • After an operational check of the equipment, we send a check, or, you can use the amount as credit towards a new or refurbished hardware upgrade.

    We buy many brands including Cisco, Dell, HP, IBM, UCS, Super Micro, EMC, NetApp, Arista Networks and others. We also buy and sell IP phones, Cisco and Ruckus wireless access points and controllers. Whether the package is a few routers, or an entire data center, World Data Products will make the process of selling your decommissioned servers or used networking equipment a breeze!

    To discuss your unique needs, use the chat function, submit a contact form, or call one of our IT Asset Disposition Specialists at 1-888-210-7636 today.
