Dell EMC PowerEdge® Server Support
As your Dell EMC PowerEdge systems reach end of warranty, avoid OEM pressure to upgrade your servers unnecessarily with post-warranty support and maintenance from CDS.
Our global network of engineers has many years worth of experience supporting and maintaining Dell EMC systems – including the PowerEdge family of servers.
Post warranty maintenance contracts are typically 30-50% lower than the Dell EMC equivalent.
And backed by a multi-million dollar parts inventory, you can be sure CDS will supply spares for all your supported servers – from high density x86 blade servers, to Opteron rack mount units, through to the Itanium-based PowerEdge 7250 series.
Partnering with CDS allows your business to realize up three to five years (or more) from your Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, helping to further increase the total return on investment.
PowerEdge support and maintenance services from CDS include:
- 7x24 to the CDS helpdesk, manned exclusively by Level 3 engineers to reduce time to fix.
- Full support for your PowerEdge servers, including OEM-approved replacement RAID controllers, hard drives, network cards and chassis.
- Proactive monitoring and maintenance of your Dell EMC servers to identify and resolve problems before performance and uptime are affected.
- Guaranteed access to every part required from our global spares inventory – deliverable to your data center in as little as two hours (subject to contract terms and SLAs).
Partnering with CDS allows your business to realize up three to five years (or more) from your Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, helping to further increase the total return on investment. Our consultants can also assist with redeploying your post-warranty assets to increase overall storage capacity, or for use in low-cost strategic development projects.
Using our global spares network, CDS can also help to increase the capacity of your existing PowerEdge environment. Using Dell EMC-approved PowerEdge RAID controllers, hard drives, network cards, processors and RAM, CDS can fully populate under-used shelves, sockets and slots, offering a cost-effective capacity boost. We carry every spare for every supported PowerEdge server.
CDS is fully vendor-agnostic, ensuring our advice and services are impartial at all times. This approach frees you from the homogenous business model of the OEMs, so you can build a best-of-breed server-operating environment that suits the specific needs of your business.
