Servers, storage and networking equipment are commonly referred to as commodity hardware in traditional data centers. Even though this hardware is readily available and is becoming less expensive, its importance should not be underestimated. The dependence on data center hardware to seamlessly run companies is at an all-time high; and will only get stronger. The most common challenge organizations are faced with is making sure their current hardware is reliable without sinking unneeded money into it.
The OEMs of the big (commoditized) server, networking and storage companies usually offer a 3-year maintenance contract when you buy new equipment. At the end of those 3 years the OEM will increase maintenance costs, which enables them to build a case for their users to upgrade to the latest and greatest hardware. What happens if your current infrastructure is running seamlessly and you don’t need to upgrade? Do you usually pay the outrageous OEM maintenance price, or do you just go ahead and upgrade?
Why not seek out an independent maintenance provider like ReluTech, that allow organizations to maximize data center performance, strategically manage hardware life cycles, and most importantly, optimize IT budgets?
