  • 7 Reasons to Buy Refurbished Servers

    Why do so many of our data center customers buy refurbished servers?

    7 Reasons to Buy Refurbished Servers

    Refurbished servers perform like new, sometimes faster depending on the configuration of processors, memory, and drives. Many IT departments refresh their server racks every three years due to agreements with a manufacturer, not because the equipment is worn out. Most servers are very reliable and can be maintained and upgraded without issues for 5-10 years.

    Cost

    A refurbished IT hardware item costs much less than new, and has a lower total cost of ownership over time. For many companies, the primary reason to buy refurbished servers over new is cost.

    ROI

    Stretch your IT budget! In this business climate, getting the most value out of every dollar and maximizing the budget is likely a high priority for your organization. Buying refurbished provides an opportunity for more of your budget to be spent on other strategic initiatives.

    Reliability

    When a customer buys a server from World Data Products, the server has been tested multiple times. First, at the factory. Then, when a data center buyback package is received in our audit center. Finally, a third test once the customer configuration is installed before shipping to you, the customer.

    Maintenance

    Parts for servers one or two generations from new, are readily available across the marketplace. The more common and successful the model, the greater availability of affordable replacement parts. In addition, because refurbished servers are so affordable, many IT departments keep key replacement components in stock, or a hot spare on the shelf or in the rack, ready to use. Third party maintenance plans can cover refurbished servers and networking equipment.

    Scalability

    When pre-owned servers are so affordable compared to new, a data center can respond quickly to requests for virtualization, new applications, a sandbox for testing, or changes in workload.

    Leadtime

    There is generally no significant lead time. World Data Products has an extensive inventory of refurbished Dell, HP, IBM, and Cisco UCS components. That means we can receive orders and sell server configurations that can often ship same day, or within a few days at most. Need something fast?

  • How to Sell Used Networking Equipment

    photo of used Cisco switchesDid you know that you can sell your used networking equipment? Of course you did, that's why you're here!

    It's true, you can, and it's not even difficult. Your department has used or decommissioned networking equipment in the data center that you want to sell because your IT department knows how to get a greater return on investment. Plus, every few years you refresh the Cisco rack with new or refurbished switches and routers, and paying an electronics recycling service to dispose of network hardware that still has value is potentially expensive and wasteful.

    It's easy to sell used Cisco or other networking equipment, especially when you work with a company that has thirty years experience in ITAD (IT Asset Disposition). Here is what you need to know:

    That's it!
