Nearly all devices in our shop have been used before and are therefore much cheaper than new goods. At the same time, all devices with the indicated number of pieces are physically in stock and therefore immediately available.
All servers are tested for you directly before shipping. For this we use a special test software, which checks all important parameters of your server and load-tests it for a short period of time. Afterwards the server is packed "still warm" for you.
Since everything in the shop is in stock and immediately ready for dispatch, our claim is: All orders until 12:00 o'clock leave our house the same day. And we get this done almost every day!
Each brand has its own style, features and believers. Therefore, we carry all major manufacturers and have all important models in stock for you. And the best thing is: Even used, the servers from HP, Dell & Co play out their special strengths.
Does it really always have to be a new server? We say: No! Because due to the high loss of value of new hardware you get more performance for the same money with used servers! In most cases the requirements, e.g. for an enterprise resource planning or accounting software, are rather under- than overchallenging, even for a slightly older server. That is why used servers, which are usually considerably lower in price, are worth more than just a glance for all companies, public institutions and corporations.
Many customers are always of the opinion that older and used hardware of the used equipment is not as good as the servers, which are technically up to date and become slower and slower over the years and months. In contrast to the most up-to-date models, used servers may be a bit slower in terms of speed if you look at the relative speed of the servers and systems. However, in the absolute speed of the used devices or our servers, remains the same even after many years of use. The used server, which is equipped with 3 GHz, 2 gigabytes of RAM and a 120 gigabyte hard disk, will still have these performance features and equipment in three years and fulfill all requirements in this regard. Thus, this performance, from a server that is used or refurbished, will be completely sufficient for normal use. Thus, hard disks don't always have to be particularly large, processors don't have to be brand new and even the housing doesn't have to be new in order to meet typical server requirements.
Old and already used servers bring some advantages, which can be clearly seen, so it is no wonder that it is often the perfect solution for both individuals and companies. Used servers have already been used in the past and thus tested for reliability and performance. In the individual tests they have already proven themselves in contrast to a new server. So you don't have to be afraid that the used server has a manufacturing defect or other deficiencies. In addition, of course, the price also plays a big role. While new servers are equipped with large hard disks, a modern case, fast processors and other novelties, used servers cost much less money to buy. In addition, in most cases no new servers are needed, so that used servers as well as other used components, such as hard disks, processors and Co. are also not necessary, the performance of the products from our store are thus completely sufficient.
Through used servers you save additional money. Especially the branded products, such as the well-known IBM Blade series or HP ProLiant variants or used Sun Sparc servers are prohibitively expensive for many users. However, we also offer used IBM and HP ProLiant products, which are much cheaper for you to buy than typical new servers. Used servers from these brands are still up-to-date and affordable for you. In addition, the purchase of servers from our store that are used or refurbished is of course also a positive effect for the environment.
Whether you are looking for a tower or want to buy a server rack: Used systems are tested for their suitability in everyday use. Unlike a notebook, for example, where you regularly buy the latest model, servers benefit from professional reconditioning. Servers are designed for continuous operation and can survive this for many years. Buying remanufactured server systems includes many advantages not only for this reason. Some of them are:
significantly lower prices than for new goods
While new systems are often very expensive, you can buy remanufactured equipment with the same features and performance at a fraction of the price. Not only does this allow you to save a lot of money on server purchases, but it also results in you being able to choose more powerful systems or even multiple systems. Instead of buying an expensive, weaker system, you invest in a cheaper, more powerful version and benefit from faster processors as well as more memory in your servers.
Buy today and receive delivery tomorrow.
Delivery of stock items is always faster than new systems. So you can usually look forward to the delivery of your used server the day after ordering, while new systems have a much longer delivery time - if the selected configuration is available at all. Several weeks pass quickly by when ordering new goods, while used servers are in stock at our company.
And the environment also benefits when you buy remanufactured equipment. The resources used in the production of electrical goods are scarce, which is also reflected in the price. If the servers are disposed of after use, a lot of valuable material is lost. However, if you buy the systems refurbished, the materials will continue to be used effectively, thus protecting the environment.
Used server systems are reliable and proven in everyday use.
When you're looking for server systems, you naturally want to buy reliable equipment. Refurbished systems are not only checked for their functionality before being sold, but they have already had a few hours of operation. This means that the respective system has been tested in everyday use. Common configuration errors or similar quirks that can occur when buying new are excluded or have been fixed in the case of used servers. You can therefore buy a device that is marked as refurbished without hesitation.
Purchasing various IT products doesn't necessarily have to turn into a horror trip and hurt your bank account. Due to the ever-growing technology, customers naturally always have in mind that the new hardware, such as RAM, hard disks, processor, power supplies and other items, such as SAS cables are already obsolete when they are unpacked. This process takes place, however, as for example with the new car purchase, above all in the first months and is to be observed also with many other products again and again. The price decline of individual products never completely disappears, but it gradually becomes less. When buying a server that has already been used for several months or a refurbished server, however, you do not have these problems and automatically escape this price and performance spiral. In addition, you make the server purchase plannable and gain control over such a problem.
We gladly take over the individual configuration of your servers. A configuration is always necessary when new hard disks, more RAM or a new processor is needed. With numerous articles from our store you will find the individual server upgrades in the article. However, we also offer many other services. If you have any questions or suggestions in this regard, just contact us, together we will find an ideal solution for your project and quickly find the desired device.
The environment also benefits when you buy remanufactured equipment. The resources used in the production of electrical goods are scarce, which is also reflected in the price. If the servers are disposed of after use, a lot of valuable material is lost. However, if you buy the systems refurbished, the materials will continue to be used effectively, thus protecting the environment.

The ecological balance of a company is becoming increasingly important. As with many other products, the production and disposal of computer and IT products represents the greatest burden on the environment. It is a matter of resources that must be conserved. Long running times of the devices have not been a problem for many years. So buying used servers is an immense gain for the environment and therefore ecologically highly recommended.
One of the most important arguments for buying a server is reliability. And this is where used servers have a special advantage: Where they are offered with hardware care packs, people are familiar with the solid series of the market and appreciate their reliability. Here it is not the quantity of sold new devices from Supermicro, IBM, HP (Proliant) & Co. that counts. What counts here are the hard disks, Intel processors, etc. that have proven themselves in tough everyday use. It is not only the experience regarding the hardware from the computer technician's point of view that counts. Today, a server is much more than just a series of powerful hard disks that have been installed with some kind of hardware à la Core, RAM, Xeon in the form of a tower or even a rack. This also applies to the "colleagues" of the systems in networks such as storage and workstation. Whether the build and equipment of IBM, Lenovo, Dell & Co. are practical can ultimately only be checked in everyday use.
It is easy to understand that people look at the size of the investment, especially when it comes to servers. Unfortunately, this is often due to the fact that the requirements for the server are underestimated. Since it operates more in the background and is not directly operated on a daily basis, the advantages and disadvantages - seemingly - do not carry as much weight. But a server that does not perform its tasks because the hardware is overloaded, for example, presents itself as a brake on entrepreneurial activity. Simply put, the server is a pain in the ass and becomes a constant nuisance. However, a server is a tool of a company and efficient tools do not attract attention.
Buying used server is a reasonable alternative in this case. It allows, for the price of a very cheap device, the purchase of a high-quality system, as known from IBM and Lenovo, Dell, Proliant and Supermicro.
If you want to buy a server because the purchase is indispensable for the company, you shouldn't agonize over the question of whether equipment or quality should be valued more highly. With a used server, both are compatible and the wallet is spared at the same time. This means that the capital commitment is considerably reduced. With a freer financial situation without long leasing periods, a company can react much more flexibly to changes. This also applies to the expansion of servers themselves. In both professional and private environments, it has been shown that a system purchased second-hand is much more likely to be adapted to new requirements than a server whose financing is far from complete.
It fits to the more flexible development of the server that used systems are immediately available. This eliminates waiting times and, above all, uncertain orders with regard to a specific model or series. What is the use of a precise system choice with regard to processors or hard disks at Xeon, IBM and so on, if then after a few weeks the feedback comes that the desired object would not be in stock. While the used competitor is already doing its job without complaint at this point, the interested party might wonder whether he should wait for the subsequent delivery or choose another product.
The drop in prices of "old" computers is not a new phenomenon, but has been widely known since the 1980s. A new series of PCs, workstations, towers, notebooks, etc. is more powerful than the older one and meets new requirements better. At the same time, the systems became and are becoming more compact and mobile (see Tower to Notebooks).Some new releases, such as the Internet for the mass market, accelerated these developments. A look at the history of printers shows that the background is more difficult. New technology, such as photo printing, became a problem for maintaining the value of printers.
Servers, as well as IT systems as a whole, including storage, workstations, racks, etc., are more or less exempt from such sometimes even fashionable trends in notebooks, PCs and printers. They basically still perform the same tasks. For this, they mainly need hard disks and processors. However, the development of both PC components is stagnating. Although performance continues to increase, their actual utility value is not developing at the same pace.
A simple example shows this: One of the most comprehensive tasks for a computer is the playback of movies including sound. Intel processors (such as Xeon for PCs and workstations) have been able to do this for several generations. In detail, the quality got even better and today you can surf the Internet on the side. But there is an almost complete lack of new development steps that make something possible that previously - for the layman - seemed unattainable (such as photo printing on vacation).
For servers in particular, this results in a situation where the drop in price is not accompanied by a drop in performance. The "technical data" often differs only slightly for servers. Buying a used server is therefore associated with an accurate ratio of price to performance.
You can save many Euros not only by buying a used server, but also by buying used storage. Among them are HP EVA, QNAP or even Netapps. Enjoy the high cost advantage by buying used storage. Used storage with an age of 2 years has a cost saving advantage of about 80 percent, which can mean a five-digit savings potential for you as a buyer. Used storage is the optimal solution for particularly short-term projects. For example, every used product is available for immediate delivery and goes directly into shipping after receipt of payment, so that every used device can be put to use within the shortest possible time, which means that in extreme cases the used server can be put to use within 24 hours.
Powerful servers are an important part of many business systems. But new models are usually very expensive. Due to the ever faster development in the field of hardware, new server solutions lose their value already after purchase. This is not the only reason why it is particularly worthwhile for you to buy used servers, if you want to upgrade your IT department. With us you will find many brands, different sizes and configurations as well as the matching accessories. And all this at reasonable prices with professionally tested performance and special warranties for the purchased systems.

You can choose from many different variants: Tower, rack or another combination of components, which you can determine depending on your personal requirements. Both private use and a professional configuration for business operations in the company are possible with a high-quality used server system. But the variations are greater than just the distinction between private use and the use of servers in your company. Servers are conceivable for various applications and can be designed according to need.
With this type of application, data is stored on multiple servers that share the load of management as well as processing. In this way, you make optimal use of the servers' computing power, while benefiting from a large storage capacity. Since the same data is stored on all the servers used in this solution, your data is particularly secure. Because even if one server should fail, the information is still accessible via the alternative units. Another advantage of this configuration is that you can expand the cluster as you wish by purchasing additional servers.
Here, too, the load of processing and managing data is transferred to several servers. However, the focus of this variant is not reduced to the sole storage of large amounts of data, but rather copes with a large number of simultaneous user requests. Load balancing is therefore ideal for companies that use their servers to host forums, for example, or to meet similarly intensive demands.
The virtual simulation of additional servers saves you costs in the acquisition of hardware. Virtualization ensures optimal utilization of the available hardware resources without you having to buy extensions.
Since the virtual systems can be mapped to any number of physical devices, there is a high level of usability that allows you to access your data at any time and from any workstation.
The price drop that is often seen with new technology can be explained by new developments in functionality, performance and other features, such as size. This can be seen in classic computers, notebooks, and especially printers. If you buy servers, however, you will be largely spared from this phenomenon. The tasks of servers have largely remained the same over the years. This means that changes and developments are only noticeable in the area of available storage space or the speed of the processors.
Although the development of hard disks and processors has not come to an end, the usability of new functions in servers is limited to a minimum. This means that even older systems can still provide the best services, even though the devices are no longer state of the art. Should you nevertheless want to renew various components of your server, it is easily possible to buy individual parts new and replace them.
For these reasons, the price-performance ratio of used servers is unbeatable compared to new systems. The performance is just as high as new, but the price is only a fraction. So buy used servers if you want to benefit from the advantages of already proven and remanufactured technology.
If you buy a server, it is often in operation 24 hours a day and seven days a week. The mechanical parts in particular - such as the hard drive - must therefore be well manufactured in order to deliver the desired performance. A detailed inspection of all parts of the respective server takes place routinely before the sale. This ensures the proper functioning of your equipment and you can buy the server without hesitation and use it at home or in the company for a long time to come.
Parts that are susceptible to failure, such as fans or power supplies, are designed redundantly, which means that the server will continue to run without restriction even if this part fails.
Running a server, like any other computer, causes heat to build up. To prevent the heat from damaging the hardware and requiring you to buy new hardware, various measures are taken:
For example, each server is equipped with some fans. Depending on the size of the configuration, the fans differ in size, number and performance. They provide an active supply with cold air and thus prevent the server configuration from overheating.
Since protecting performance takes priority over everything, servers are therefore often very noisy and equipped with redundant fans.
Depending on what you use your server for, the configuration must be able to withstand different numbers of requests in a short time. When managing websites, this can quickly be several hundred requests per second. So, in addition to a fast hard disk, you should also buy the most effective CPU possible for your server. Depending on the application, e.g. as a database server, server-grade SSDs can also provide high read and write speeds. A RAID controller with a cache still provides the necessary buffer and security.
Another factor is the load - that has to be absorbed by servers. This term refers to the Another factor is the load - also called load - that has to be absorbed by servers. This term refers to the number of processes currently running in the computer and also the processes that are waiting for further events, i.e. are active in the background, so to speak. If you want to buy a server that can handle extremely high loads, you will need a lot of RAM in particular. Most servers can be upgraded with more memory after purchase. Since processes are also transferred to the hard disk when the memory is heavily loaded, but it reacts slower than the main memory, you should not only buy a lot of RAM but also fast hard disks for your server solution.
You buy the respective selection with your server, so to speak. By default, you can choose either 12 or 24 months for each item. If you have other ideas about the hardware care pack period of your server, this can also be realized after a short inquiry. The price for the hardware care pack, meanwhile, is based on the gross merchandise value of your systems. But what service can you expect with the respective care pack?
The hardware care pack is a very important criterion, especially for electronic devices that have to provide long operating times. While other providers sometimes only offer a few months coverage for new goods, here you get up to 24 months coverage on used goods - as well as full service should your server have problems. Generally, you can choose between the following hardware care packs:
The faulty server will be picked up, repaired and returned to you directly. No matter if the power supply, the hard drive or a fan is defective: If you buy this hardware care pack, neither the repair nor the pickup or delivery will cost you another euro. If the part cannot be repaired, it will be replaced free of charge without you having to buy a replacement part yourself.
The NDB service is an on-site service. A technician takes care of the problem directly at the server's location. Already on the next working day after your notification the error will be fixed or the defective server will be replaced. Buy this hardware care pack if the standard coverage is too little for you and you want more service for your systems.
With the 4h-Service you buy highest security for your devices. On seven days, around the clock, trained technicians will help you on site within four hours (only valid within Germany) with your problem and fix the errors on your server. This quality service guarantees you a fast reaction in case of problems and short-term defects.
Used server systems are individual, efficient solutions for your company or private household. Especially if you depend on seamless performance, it pays off to buy second-hand. Because the money you save allows you to buy several units at once and keep them in storage as cold spares. In this way, you can react to any failures just as well as to a necessary increase in functions or performance.
Buy several units and use the other servers as cold spares.
All servers from the range are professionally tested for functionality and can be configured and put into operation immediately after delivery. Consistent comparisons between used and new servers show that the used equipment can keep up with the new systems in every respect. This applies to processors as well as hard disks or memory. Buy your server solutions as used goods, save money and don't sacrifice performance and features.
