Why a Refurbished/Used Server is a Great Option for Your Business

Posted by

Are you considering buying a used server? Read on to learn why it's a great option for your business.

A brand new server can be a very expensive investment.

These costs can be even higher when you factor in the price of supporting, maintaining, and upgrading a dedicated server.

But it doesn't have to be this way. What if you could save thousands on server costs and go green while doing it?

If you want an affordable server without sacrificing quality, a refurbished server is perfect for you.

In this article, we'll show you the ways that a used server can help you grow a bigger business at a smaller price.

How Does Refurbishing a Server Work?

When you see "used" or "refurbished" you may think that means that you're getting someone's old computer that doesn't work anymore. This fear often keeps people from even considering buying a used server.

In reality, the refurbishing process is thorough and ensures that each server works perfectly.

A team of IT professionals test of all the parts. Some tests force each component to run for long periods of time to discover problems. And to ensure each server runs properly.

Next, the inside and outside of each server are cleaned so that it looks and functions like new.

If you are still unsure one of the best benefits of used servers is that they come with a warranty to ensure each refurbished server is long lasting.

Save Money With a Used Server

One of the best benefits of refurbishing is getting a good price without sacrificing quality. In some cases, you can get two used servers for the price of a new server.

Often these servers are in nearly new condition.

Many of the refurbished servers were corporate or government servers that were decommissioned out after only a few years, despite being built to last decades.

This means you can get a server that's built to last at a fraction of the cost.

Used Servers Can Help You Go Green

Roughly 41.8 million tons of electronic waste is generated per year. Of this waste, only 15-20% is recycled.

This is causing a huge environmental crisis. Because a lot of electronic waste releases toxic metals that are poisoning the environment.

It doesn't have to be this way. All this waste can be avoided by proper disposal of electronics. Or better yet recycling.

And one of the best ways to recycle is to refurbish.

Refurbished devices offer a perfect solution to electronic waste by giving used servers a second chance at life. Instead of letting them get thrown in a landfill let them be the best part of your business.
