Facilis introduces first upgrade program ever!

November 30, 2010 Leave a comment

Facilis Technology has been shipping TerraBlock shared storage systems for over 6 years now.  They’ve been offering a capacity upgrade program, which has been a great offering.   Upgrading capacity is a rare program that few manufacturers have done.   What many of the older systems do not get with the upgraded drives is upgraded server performance.

In order to refresh our customers’ technology and make it easier to benefit from the latest feature set and performance advancements, Facilis in conjunction with Key Code Media is offering  a trade-in program for any client’s TerraBlock 12D or 24D that has been in the field for over 4 years. This program excludes the 8XS product.

The Trade-in credit is equal to allows you to move to a  24EX or 24D at 80% the standard pricing.

As with the legacy capacity expansion program, each customer must be qualified for the program prior to quoting. The replaced server chassis and drives must be returned within 30 days.  In addition, Facilis Technology announces that systems over 4 years old are no longer eligible for Extended Hardware Warranty coverage.

Call us today at 818-303-3900, 206-728-4000, 310-401-6700, 949-757-0309 or 415-221-0300 for further information as to how the new Server technology from Facilis can increase the performance of your system.  We have some great year end leasing programs where no payments, upon qualification, are due until April 2011.
