XSi Independent IT Server Maintenance & Support
XSi provides independent enterprise IT server maintenance and support services for IBM, Lenovo, Dell, HPE, Oracle/Sun, Cisco and SGI IT server hardware. Not all server 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 server hardware assets are eligible for XSi independent IT server maintenance?
Certainly, any IT server 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 servers that have reached post-warranty status and are in or near “stable state (with respects to patch updates),” may also be eligible for XSi IT server maintenance. 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 IT server environment.
XSi is a strong proponent of enterprise IT server 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 server maintenance support model to maintain IT servers for as long as doing so is logical in your unique environment.
