“Teksavers really came through for me in a pinch. Their vast “on-hand” inventory is a lifesaver.”
“Installed and working great. It appears Teksavers understands customer service! I had a great experience working with you. Before I found Teksavers I tried several times to get equipment from various suppliers/OEM’s, but never found the right combination of customer support and high quality products together, until I found Teksavers. Thank you for making my procurement efforts seamless now!”
“My network was down and we had no one on staff to fix it. We called Teksavers and they sent one of their engineers over in minutes. He quickly determined the problem, changed the configuration, and got our network back online. Then they presented us with four (4) options for a network refresh that allowed us to take into our planning meetings to determine what we needed to do to upgrade our infrastructure. Can’t say enough about the Teksavers team and what they did to help us. Once we get the planned budget approved, we know who we are going to use.”
“I was in a bind and needed this switch next day. Teksavers moved fast to process and ship my order to meet the urgency of my project. Teksavers has proven this for over 8 years now. Thank you for being our #1 rated supplier.”
“Bryan, you have once again proven that Teksavers is the vendor of choice for us. You always deliver and with great quality. Thank you for always going the extra mile for us!”
“Got the equipment yesterday and I really appreciate the help. Teksavers has always come through for myself and my team!”
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a monster and it’s become impossible to escape. Seemingly every device, from mobile phones to cars to electric toothbrushes is sending bits and bytes of information wirelessly to locations all over the world. This multiplying amount of consumer data means that companies now can design products and services based directly on customer needs, offering them greater value, building stronger brand loyalty and, ideally, generating greater revenue for the company.
But, the IoT is pumping big data into the veins of our IT infrastructure, continuously putting pressure on the ability of companies to process it all. Many businesses are struggling to keep up with the demands and the constant influx of information from IoT-connected devices. What does this new technology landscape mean for your business and how do you deal with it?
One obstacle to expanding the ability of a company to process this data is that many organizations are hampered by a lack of access to siloed data among departments that should, ideally, be cross-functional – severely limiting the integration of data sets from disparate sources.
Whatever challenges businesses face internally, the explosion of available consumer data requires more complex communications and networking capabilities, more robust data processing, and a vast amount of storage. And, the amount of IT infrastructure expansion necessary to keep pace with data throughput from the IoT is enough to deprive CIOs of their sleep for the foreseeable future. The good news is that it doesn’t have to.
There are two main challenges to expanding IT infrastructure that easily can be avoided:
Procuring the right IT hardware for any infrastructure project can be expensive, especially when buying new equipment. But there are reliable alternatives to purchasing new hardware. Many businesses have benefitted from sourcing guaranteed used or refurbished hardware at prices that allow them to expand their capabilities while staying within budget requirements for their projects.
Many companies just don’t have the on-staff knowledge base to carry a project like this through to completion, nor do they have the payroll budget to search for and bring on an experienced employee or team who can drive the project end to end. In this scenario, a company can minimize capital outlay for these projects by hiring outside consultants who can help build and install the necessary infrastructure.
This is where Teksavers shines. Teksavers, in collaboration with the world’s largest server/storage provider, has created a customized appliance, Reference Architecture (RA), that targets this new “monster”. Our RA reduces the infrastructure requirements by 40%, increases speed of data by 80%, and affords your organization faster time to market with your custom applications that target your customers’ needs. We take test data creation & roll back from 6-8 weeks to 2-4 hours.
The IoT monster is here to stay. Don’t be intimidated by the new requirements it puts on your company. Contact Teksavers and we’ll help you win the battle.
When it comes right down to it, if you’re running any kind of a tech company then deep down there’s a hope that your company will become the next Google. Reaching that status – where a company’s name turns into a verb – means you’ve arrived and that your brand is associated with industry-leading global success.
There’s of course no silver bullet to becoming the next Google, but one thing young companies can do to increase their chances of success is learning to emulate the operational practices of Google and other industry leaders to be more efficient, cut costs and wring every last dollar out of your capital investment.
One hot tactic that’s fairly easy to employ is creating a comprehensive life cycle plan for IT equipment so that hardware such as switches, routers, servers and other components from leading manufacturers like Dell and Cisco stay useful and deliver value for as long as possible. While Google has gone so far as to create a “zero waste” program for its custom-made networking equipment, companies of all sizes can figure out how to repair and reuse their Cisco routers, switches and other server equipment, whether they’ve bought brand new or are using warranty-backed resale pieces like those available from Teksavers.
Google reports that the increased performance of a rigorous evaluation and maintenance schedule for its computing backbone has made the company one of the most efficient in the world, by lowering the cost of ownership for its IT equipment and saving it more than $1 billion in the process.
That’s an eye-popping number for most companies, even those with multiple data centers and multi-million dollar annual equipment budgets, but the principle is the same: it makes smart business sense to have a full life cycle equipment plan.
Much like an annual doctor’s check up, a quarterly evaluation of the performance of CPUs, motherboards, flash devices, hard disks, memory modules, as well as data center and networking components will let your IT department spot problem pieces before they experience a critical failure. Once ID’d, those pieces can be repaired to like-new condition or disassembled so their parts can be used to repair other pieces in the company inventory when the time is right.
At first it may seem intimidating and overwhelming to create a program to monitor and track the performance of your company’s entire IT backbone – that’s a whole lot of servers and switches – but the practice is becoming widespread enough that life cycle plans similar to the one Google uses can be found online, and they can be customized to fit your business with the expertise of vendors like Teksavers.
So even if it’s easier to think that life cycle plans are only needed if you’re one of the “big boys,” remember that if you want to grow your company to that level it’s never to early to start behaving like they do.
For companies facing the expensive decision of how to expand or create their first IT hardware backbone, it might help to think about baby clothes. For everyone who just spilled their coffee, did a double take and checked their browser to see if they wound up on a mommy blog, read on and everything will become crystal clear.
Of the many options that young companies face when considering IT hardware, one of the first forks in the road is whether to spend that money on shiny, new and expensive components or to make their dollars go farther by buying used equipment from trusted providers like Cisco.
Used equipment that comes up for resale is attractive for lots of reasons, especially if providers like Teksavers back up their equipment with guarantees like the S.A.F.E. Guard program, which ensures that product purchases are a safe and affordable alternative to higher-priced new products. But we all have those fears of not knowing a product’s history, and images of a creepy used car salesman trying to peddle a lemon and push us off the lot as fast as he can.
Here’s where the baby clothes come into the picture. When you think about friends and family (or even you, dear reader) who have given away or sold baby clothes from a fast-growing newborn, rarely are the parents offloading the clothes because they’re worn out or no good.
Instead, they’re parting ways and re-selling outgrown clothes – and buying brand new clothing – because they no longer have any use for what are otherwise perfectly usable and close-to-new threads.
Growing technology companies frequently go through pivots and rounds of expansion that can change their entire business model or the framework of their IT system. When that happens, equipment that had been perfectly adequate might not be robust enough or have quite the right mix of features to help them reach their next level of growth.
In come pallets of new equipment, and the otherwise perfectly useful hardware is put up for resale through vendors such as Teksavers so it can be put back into use for newer companies that have different IT needs.
All the equipment that Teksavers makes available for resale is vetted to make sure it’s authentic and in top working order before it’s put on the market. Our experience in the industry gives us a solid working knowledge of whether companies have a strict equipment monitoring program, which catches signs of deterioration so issues can be repaired to like-new performance or hardware gets replaced entirely and disposed of.
Our partnership with Verification Systems Technology provides a “best in class” screening process to weed out counterfeit equipment disguised as coming from a trusted OEM. And our TEKNET maintenance program provides comprehensive technical service and support for all your IT equipment, including end-of-life and previous generation product.
Taken together, Teksavers has a suite of systems in place to ensure that the used equipment we sell is going to fit your company and provide exactly the level of performance needed to run trouble free. Doing that helps our business partners reach their full potential, so that they’ll be ready when it’s time to cope with a growth spurt of their own.
The decision to build a data center is one of the most important and potentially most expensive moves that a growing company can make. As the cloud becomes the home of most consumers’ and business information, it is critical that young companies have the ability to move data quickly and reliably, with no downtime or security issues that can wipe out customer trust in a heartbeat.
But there’s a tremendous price tag that comes with building a brand new data center and all the IT hardware, cooling and electrical infrastructure needed to keep it in top shape. Forrester Research puts the upfront cost of a typical data center with around 70,000 servers at $30 million, with a total lifetime cost of 15 years at $47 million.
Those numbers assume all the servers, switches and storage equipment are being purchased brand new, but companies can take a big bite out of that initial cost by purchasing used or refurbished IT equipment with a reliable performance guarantee.
By most estimates, the IT hardware in a data center accounts for 35 percent of the facility’s initial cost. So for a $30 million center that would mean approximately $10 million pays for equipment from Cisco, Dell, Intel or any other trusted hardware supplier.
Proven network equipment resellers like Teksavers can provide used or refurbished routers, servers and more for around 50 percent of the price of brand new equipment, with discounts occasionally reaching 80 percent off list price.
For example, a Cisco Catalyst class switch typically costs around $1,500 – and in some cases over $2,000 – brand new. But in the world of used IT equipment, it’s pretty typical to find it for less than $800. Similar price breaks are typical for servers and storage equipment as well, and when you’re talking tens of thousands of pieces of equipment, the savings add up fast.
Looking back at our “whole building” example, a 50 percent savings on the entire IT backbone of a new data center would reduce the initial cost by around $5 million. For a young startup company, that is a big difference that can help make a fundraising round significantly smaller or can add $5 million to operating cash flow instead of being used for a capital outlay.
And as more IT hardware comes into use while cloud computing becomes more and more commonplace, that means the marketplace for used networking equipment will keep growing. The benefits are huge, and at Teksavers our high quality servers, switches and other refurbished IT equipment will serve the needs of your business for years to come.

Why Purchase Refurbished Network Equipment?
Purchasing refurbished network equipment is the wisest choice for any business since it complies with quality standards, often with the same warranty options as new network gear. Though refurbished equipment is typically backed by various standards, different vendors use different processes, parts, levels of rigor and quality-acceptance to refurbish the equipment they sell, according to Maryann Von Seggern from Cisco. We warranty all of the equipment we sell and spell it out clearly on your invoice for future reference.
Authenticity is Key
If you buy used equipment from a trusted source, like Teksavers, you can be sure that you’re getting quality gear that is verified for authenticity as well as functionality. We recommend that our clients use Verifications Systems Technology since recent industry research estimates that ten percent of all IT hardware is counterfeit. Protect your reputation by ensuring that the equipment you buy is the real deal.
