Each one of our refurbished Dell 1U rack servers is individually inspected prior to configuration. All rack servers we carry have been decommissioned and acquired from climate controlled facilities to include both colocations and data centers across the United States.

When your server order is placed, we build the server to your specifications, complete all firmware updates (to include bio's) and full integration of internal hardware components. Each server is entered into our warranty system by hardware part number, placement & type (Ram/HDD/iDRAC/PSU). Dell R420 Servers configured with 3 or more hard drives will be set by default to RAID5 and loaded with Windows Server 2016 Standard (Microsoft Supported Server)

If you would like to request a specific RAID level, or if you would like us to set up multiple disk arrays, please let us know in "Dell PowerEdge Notes to your Technician" We will review accordingly and reach out if we have questions regarding your order request. 

Our Goal: We understand time is money. With that in mind we want to build your server as close to turn-key as possible. When the server arrives, its ready to deploy around your schedule. Please don't hesitate provide us with as much detailed information regarding hardware set-up in the TECH Notes. This will help alleviate additional time out of your day, when we can simply do it for you.

    Quiet and capable

    Had to re-seat a loose H310 board but since then it has worked great and idles extremely quietly - great for 1U.
