Wondering why your data center hardware maintenance is so expensive?
If so, you’re definitely not alone. It’s no secret that IT hardware manufacturers (OEMs) want you to replace your storage, servers, and networking equipment with the newest technology every 3-5 years, and they will artificially increase the price of maintenance renewals in order to motivate you to refresh.
This is why Relus helps hundreds of organizations drive out unnecessary hardware maintenance costs, gain contract flexibility, and extend the life of their existing systems with our own post-warranty support, known to some as “third-party maintenance.” With Relus support, you can expect to save 40-70% vs. renewing with the OEM, and that’s money you can invest in more strategic initiatives.

Why use Relus for Post-Warranty Support?
40-70% Cost Savings
Our customers regularly save tens of thousands, sometimes hundreds of thousands of dollars by switching from OEM support to Relus support for storage, servers and networking.
Flexible Contract Terms
You don’t have to sign a one-year contract. We realize that you may have plans to decommission a system in less than a year from now, and we’re happy to be flexible with short-term or even customized contracts.
Cost savings don’t matter if they put the business (or your job) at risk. With Relus support, you’ll have engineers who actually specialize in the product they’re supporting for a level of service that goes well beyond break/fix hardware support.
Support for EOL Equipment
Has the manufacturer sent you a letter saying your equipment is “End of Life”? It doesn’t matter to us. Due to our large inventory of genuine parts and expert technicians, we’ve declared the phrase “End of Life” to be EOL.
