XSi provides independent data center storage hardware maintenance and support services for NetApp, IBM, Dell/EMC, HPE, Oracle/Sun/STK, Cisco and HDS (Hitachi Data Systems) to help lower data center cost (OpEx). Not all storage hardware assets require expensive maintenance agreements from the Original Equipment Manufacturer, so OpEx budget cost reductions, often averaging 60+%, are not only possible, but perfectly viable with XSi independent support.
Which data center storage hardware assets are eligible for XSi independent support?
Certainly, any storage asset that has reached or about to reach announced EoL or EoS milestone dates are perfect for lower-cost XSi support. However in many instances, most all storage devices that have reached post-warranty status and are in or near “stable state (with respects to patch updates),” may also be eligible for XSi data center cost reductions. Your team’s near-term or long-term planning (including contingencies) will play a significant role in a collaborative discussion with the XSi product management team, and the customized support solutions that are possible. With your objectives clarified, XSi proposed solutions will help strike the balance between OpEx savings and the stability of your production or non-production data center storage environment.
XSi is a strong proponent of enterprise data center storage lifecycle management, proactive and logical reductions in TCO, as well as thoughtful reductions in e-waste. Instead of single-focused strategies on the expensive tech refresh, XSi has designed a support model to maintain data center storage for as long as doing so is logical in your unique environment.
With guidance from XSi technical experts, a collaborative dialogue helps identify data center storage hardware that can be moved to lower-cost, independent maintenance from XSi – solid savings with no sacrifice to service quality! As a multivendor (OEM) and vendor-neutral maintenance provider, XSi can simplify vendor consolidation, establish coterminous support contracts, provide valid parts (ISO-certified) sparing, provide IMAC/SmartHands and secure ITAD services for current storage maintenance clients. If you’re seeking data center cost reductions, you’ll want to engage a discussion with XSi.
