The IBM range of SAN switches can be traced back to the 1st generation 2109's, supporting 1 and 2GB networks to the modern 8GB devices ( IBM 2498 and IBM 2499 switches, supporting 24 ports through to 512 on a fully configured SAN768B ). more
From the first generation 2109 through to the current SAN range, IBM's SAN switches 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 GBICS and licences - and we consider the maintenance costs when proposing these solutions. Maintenance companies, please be aware that we can provide FRU and part number level components on many of these items.

All items are covered by a combination of our warranty and manufacturer maintenance acceptance. The only difference is price. Pay less and get more.
Covenco have 30 years experience in IT solutions and our client base includes some of the largest IT users in the UK - many of whom have been clients for years.

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 SAN solutions utilise switches, disk, tape and other products that have been available in our market for a number of years now. This means that Covenco can supply upgrades and parts for the majority of SAN installations at fractions of the list price.
Our technical experts understand your configuration outputs - so we can establish your current configuration and all the products you may need in your upgrade.
These components will be ex-stock and therefore available in 24-48hrs, will be guaranteed acceptable for maintenance and can include installation if you desire.
We can then supply all the engineering and support services you may need - including a maintenance contract on the new parts if required.
Contact your Covenco sales rep for more details today.

Looking for a leasing or rental solution for your IBM SAN ?
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.
