IBM DS8000 Disk
IBM's flagship DS8000 Disk Subsystems (DS8100, DS8300, DS8700 & DS8800) are highly performant disk solutions for large, critical, speed sensitive applications. The latest DS8000's, powered by a POWER6 processor, can store up to 2048TB on storage in RAID levels 5, 6, 10, with 2GB/s fibre channel connectivity. Options vary depending on DS8000 model.
The first generation DS8100 and 8300 systems are freely available in the used market and are typically ex-stock, so please contact us to check on the configurations available. Upgrades are possible - additional disk, memory, attachment cards and frames - and we consider the OEL costs when proposing these solutions. The newer DS8700 and DS8800 systems are in short supply, but are starting to become available. Maintenance companies, please be aware that we can provide FRU and part number level components on many of these items more

Covenco have been specialising in recycling for nearly two decades - after all, refurbishing and reselling your redundant hardware is the most green and efficient way of disposing of an asset. Where an asset has a value and can be resold, we will always pay a fair price.
However, not everything will have a resale value so if you need a complete solution, we can provide a turnkey service to collect all your redundant electrical assets and recycle the components, keeping the waste to an absolute minimum.
We arrange collection and can provide documentation to satisfy your compliancy audits.
We can also provide a data destruction service to ensure any sensitive data you may have is properly protected.
Contact us today to learn more.
Most of the current DS Disk Subsystems utilise disk and expansion frames that worked in previous generations that have been available in our market for a number of years now. This means that Covenco can supply upgardes for the majority of the DS Disk Systems at fractions of the IBM list price.

Looking for a leasing or rental solution for your IBM DS8000 Disk ?
Our rental solutions are available for hardware configurations of all sizes . All of our rentals have flexible terms - as short as one week through to months and years, and can often be delivered in 48-72hrs. With a full installation service and maintenance available, plus the option to allow the minimum term to be extended or the contract converted from rental to ownership at any point, a rental from Covenco provides flexibility and value for money.
Despite the general reduction in the cost of hardware this past decade, the costs of implementing a large solution are still considerable, and it can be very important to find the right finance solution to compliment your chosen hardware. Covenco can access a number of funding sources to provide solutions for projects as small as £10,000 through to multi-million pound data centre upgrades. Depending on the equipment involved, the lease term could be from as little as 12 months, through to five years.
