The End of an Era

HPE quit shipping their HPE BL460 Gen10 line in late 2020. HPE is wanting their customers to forklift upgrade into their Synergy platform. We all know though that it isn’t so easy to spend thousands of dollars on a new technology with a snap of a finger. Data centers have been scrambling to decide on how to move forward. Extend or upgrade?  

Extending

Many customers, are trying to find ways to extend the life of their Blade environment by turning to companies like V3 to fill their requirements. Unfortunately, supply is very limited and with any limited supply constraints, prices go way up. V3 has helped many customers ease the panic of what do I do, by supplying them with used HPE Gen10 blades to get them by until they decide on how to move forward with their data center in the long run. Whether that is adding more blades, or doing upgrades on the memory and CPU’s our inventory has allowed companies to take a breather.  

Upgrading

Once companies decide on an upgrade path for the future, V3 will also look at purchasing those Gen10 blades back.
