When making your next purchasing decision with regards to your IT hardware infrastructure, you may have a lot of questions. Determining what servers would be best suitable for your needs could also be challenging, and will depend on the specific IT projects for which you are planning. You will likely need something reliable, something affordable, and something that has a very short lead-time.
The options at your disposal are by no means limited. When purchasing brand new servers, you just need to decide what brand (OEM) works best for you, as well as what configuration you will need. You also need to determine from which distributor to purchase. When you buy a refurbished server or a used server, however, there are many more factors that come in to play, such as the quality of the refurbished products, the reputability of the seller, the certifications of the seller, the pricing of the seller’s products, and more.
