Special projects

Many IT managers find themselves in situations where they must maintain a legacy environment or need an upgrade to keep up with demand-but the equipment they require is no longer available new.

Pre-owned with Warranty

IBM Pre-owned Equipment is an offering provided through the IBM brand divisions featuring selected used IBM Server and Storage Systems that have been tested and factory refurbished and includes the warranty normally available only on new systems.
This is different than IBM Certified Pre-owned Equipment in that:

  1. IBM Certified Pre-owned is provided with a 90-day quality satisfaction guarantee.
  2. IBM Certified Pre-owned is provided through IBM Global Financing, not the IBM brand divisions.

The IBM Pre-owned offering is ideal for clients who are interested in adding to an existing infrastructure where the machine type or model is no longer available in new production and the client desires the same warranty as equivalent new systems. This offering is available through IBM Systems Technology (selected servers) and the IBM Storage Brand (selected storage devices).
