Configuring your refurbished HP Server |

Posted by

Hi all.... It's Andy Hughes here, the owner of

Firstly I'd like to thank you for taking the time to visit the site. We hope you'll enjoy the look, feel and functionality of it and I hope you find what you're looking for.

I thought I'd write a small blog explaining some of the sites perks with the aim of making you, the IT Manager or IT Technicians life that bit easier when purchasing refurbished servers, storage and networking equipment for your infrastructure.

Over the years I've seen a lot of refurbished and new retail, IT hardware eCommerce websites popping up all over the place, but been a techie myself, I was beginning to become frustrated with the fact that none, or very little of these websites give you the option to configure your server, storage or networking hardware that you're to build, all on the same page.
I'd spend hours having to add separate components to my shopping kart or having to buy things for multiple websites, but worst of all, usually forgetting a integral piece hardware needed to complete the build.

This is where I had the bright spark in my head, the light bulb moment! to create a site, exactly how I would want it to be!..... A year and a half later, lots of late nights and a frustrated wife, It's finally live!

One of the first servers I added to the site was the refurbished HP Proliant DL360 G7 1U Rack Server. If you click the link above you'll be taken straight to the page where you can choose your options.

From the first two drop down boxes you can add the refurbished CPU's you need. As you can see, all the popular Intel Xeon models are there including the high end editions.
Next up is the memory. You can configure the memory exactly how you like. Whether you want it full of 4GB, 8GB or even 16GB Dimms, virtually every configuration is available.
If you're looking for additional refurbished HP PCI Express cards, you can configure your server with a large range of HP NIC, Fibre Channel, Storage HBA or Storage Array Controllers all at cheap, competitive prices.
Next up are the hard drives. You can configure each of the 8x 2.5" Hard Drive bays that come standard with our refurbished HP Proliant DL360 G7 servers. All the industry standard SAS /SATA hard drives are available or if you're looking for some serious I/O performance, you can choose from a number or HP branded refurbished SSD hard drives, all tested by our thoroughly trained technicians.
You can then finally choose from a range of Hot Plug Power Supplies and whether you want a rack rail kit or not.

All this at cheap, competitive refurbished prices. And to make things even better, all of our hardware is backed by a 3 Year Next Business Day or 1-3 Working days Hardware Replacement Warranty, free of charge! We'll even throw in free telephone and remote support if you're having a tough time configuring something or connecting your new hardware to your existing infrastructure.

With the above in mind, feel free to give us a call, drop us an email or talk to us on the live website chat. We're open 9AM till 5:30PM, Monday through Friday.

I hope you enjoy the site as much as we do.

Thanks for reading.
