Curvature is Your Single Resource for Pre-Owned and New Products to Promote Sustainability and Complete IT Freedom.
Curvature HardwareWe can help with the sourcing and procurement of new and pre-owned storage, server and networking hardware. If you are looking for a hardware refresh for your storage, server, and networking equipment, you may wish to consider pre-owned hardware as an alternative to new hardware through Curvature. Beyond the cost savings available to you by procuring pre-owned hardware, you will also benefit from knowing that you have played your part in the circular economy by purchasing fit-for-purpose pre-owned hardware, ensuring their re-use. Another benefit to you in the current marketplace is that you are more likely to obtain your pre-owned hardware immediately, against new hardware procurement, which is where you may experience long fulfilment delays due to the current global chip shortage and global supply chain issues.
Park Place Technologies Third Party MaintenanceWe can help with supporting and maintaining assets longer beyond the EOSL period. Park Place Technologies specializes in supporting and maintaining post-warranty and End of Service Life (EOSL) equipment, saving 30-40% when compared with maintenance costs from the OEM. They help organizations around the world keep and continue to use their existing data center hardware — including storage, server and networking hardware — beyond their warranty and EOSL period. Should this infrastructure ever require upgrades, such as additional shelves of storage, more memory, or CPUs, Park Place can take care of their sourcing, supply, installation and support. Through Park Place IT hardware maintenance services, we offer automated maintenance through ParkView Hardware Monitoring™ service which is underpinned by the IT industry’s only First-Time Fix™ Guarantee. Additionally, through Park Place ITAD services, you can be sure that your hardware will be disposed of safely and securely, with secure data erasure and the provision of compliant documentation to Waste from Electrical and Electronic Equipment standards (WEEE).
Curvature has been engaging in sustainability practices through our pre-owned hardware offerings and our role in the IT circular economy for over 37 years. We commit to our employees, customers, partners, and wider IT and technology industries. The circular economy is an economic model that ensures that resources which enter the economy can remain a part of it for as long as possible. In IT, this means ensuring that technology and technology services remain in use for as long as is practically possible, while adopting the “Re-use, Reduce and Recycle” concept.
