A global seller of pre-owned networking solutions has recently expanded its offerings with servers and storage solutions.
Network Hardware Resale, which started out in the US selling pre-owned networking solutions, has recently included servers and storage solutions with the promise that these solutions will be of the same quality and reliability as the networking solutions that the company has been known for.
This promise is backed by the NetSure Maintenance Program, which is a support and maintenance program for all major server brands.
Network Hardware Resale said its server and storage solutions include known brands, such as HP, IBM, Dell and Sun, but at 30 to 60 percent off OEM list prices.
Network Hardware Resale said its solutions are also good for companies experiencing a deluge of data yet may not have the immediate resources to upgrade to keep up with the demand. Such is the case with a US healthcare organisation which has been experiencing continuous growth lately.
"In order for us to effectively manage the deluge of sensitive data, we needed to increase the processing power of the network while minimising downtime and high cost of an upgrade. Given Network Hardware Resale's reputation and expertise in quickly supplying customers with quality networking solutions, we were able to deploy the pre-configured server and storage solutions needed to better support our customers and their patients," said Rick Lobb, systems administrator of a Washington-based healthcare IT organisation and customer of Network Hardware Resale.
Market research firm IDC said it makes sense for Network Hardware Resale to expand its offerings to include servers and storage.
"With Network Hardware Resale's established customer base, the evolution of their business to include server and storage solutions is a natural transition," said Rob Brothers, program director, IDC's Software and Hardware Support Services research practice. "The introduction of servers and storage solutions coupled with Network Hardware Resale's service and support capabilities carves out unique opportunities that will help contribute to the company's success in the market."
Network Hardware Resale also expanded its NetSure Maintenance Program to include a range of 24x7 support and fast hardware replacement options.
"With the addition of these new offerings, businesses all over the world can take advantage of a hybrid approach of using new and pre-owned equipment to optimise strategic investments that will help manage the data deluge, while expanding the footprint of their network infrastructure all at a lower cost," said Mike Sheldon, president and CEO, Network Hardware Resale.
