Where does xByte get servers?

When a Dell customer places an order, the company sends the order to an assembly line to be built, packaged and shipped. Technicians pick the necessary parts and send them to the assembly line, along with parts for the hundreds of other orders being fulfilled that day. If a customer changes or cancels their order, rather than bring the line to a stop, Dell finishes the build and sells the equipment at a discount. When this process happens, the machine is labeled certified refurbished.

This means that many of the certified refurbished machines sold by xByte Technologies are not just certified refurbished, they’ve never been in production. Often times with a certified refurbished server, you receive the benefit of never used equipment at a significant cost savings by taking advantage of the realities of made to order manufacturing.

Best Practices of Reputable Resellers

Reputable resellers start with procuring certified refurbished servers, storage, and parts from a high-quality source, such as Dell. There are several steps a reseller should take to ensure the equipment functions properly throughout its service life. When purchasing through xByte, we guarantee you're getting the highest quality hardware.

Certified Technician

Dell Certified Technicians

xByte Technologies makes sure our technicians are trained at the highest level. We use Dell Certified Technicians throughout the certified refurbished process, starting with receiving equipment at the door, and continuing until products are packaged and shipped to clients. That not only guarantees that that techs servicing the servers, storage, and parts we sell have true expertise on the specific hardware they work on, but that they have a direct line to Dell support. When help is needed, Dell is right there to provide it. When you choose a vendor, ask how their technicians are certified. If they haven't been trained by a reputable third party like Dell, walk away.

Testing Station

Static-Free Environment

Our technicians ensure quality throughout the process, ranging from handling servers, storage and parts in a static free environment, to creating custom packaging that ensures xByte products arrive at their destination in the same condition they left the factory floor. An example would be our meticulous process for shipping memory. Each piece of memory is placed in an anti-static, fitted tray that results in a great presentation for our superior product, and the assurance that the memory will work exactly as intended.

Custom Boxes

Hard Drive Boxes

xByte spent months developing a hard drive box that uses custom foam inserts. The inserts slide right into the box, providing the best possible fit, resulting in the best possible protection. The inserts ensure that the drives stand up to a rigorous drop test. xByte Technologies goes the extra mile to ensure that our quality of products are equivalent to those purchased directly from Dell. Customers can rely on our servers, storage and parts and feel confident while purchasing identical equipment at a friendlier price.

Custom Packing

Industry Leading Packing

xByte Technologies has some of the best packaging in the business. We use double walled, made from heavy cardboard, and drop tested boxes. We ship boxes with inserts especially designed for small parts to ensure they arrive in the same condition they left the factory. xByte regularly tests their packaging to ensure a tight, safe fit during shipping for servers, storage and parts. When a customer opens an xByte box, they can be self-assured that their parts arrived safely.

The Extra Mile

Perhaps it is obvious, but the purpose of the diligent effort implemented by a reseller is to ensure that the certified refurbished servers, storage, or parts are equally as efficient as the equipment purchased from the direct wholesaler. xByte Technologies focuses heavily on customer satisfaction, so we go the extra mile in our Dell Certified Refurbished process.

Static Free

Consider This

xByte updates all the firmware and BIOS to the most recent versions. We run diagnostics to ensure that the updates do not interfere with compatibility, and we do it all in a static-free environment. When you puchase from xByte, you're guaranteed an updated product - reducing the time it takes to get your server up and running.
