BBC on legacy computer parts – No problem says Hyperscale IT

Yesterday Hyperscale IT featured on the BBC news website, giving input around running legacy parts and systems:

The long legacy of the floppy disk

Although legacy systems can still function well in certain circumstances, it’s easy to find yourself in the situation where parts become hard to find and upkeep can become expensive.

For example, have you ever found that you needed to upgrade your new server but then realised that it had actually gone end of life?

We have many sources for hard-to-find parts. So whether you are looking to replace degraded parts or upgrade your server capability, we have it covered. Many can be shipped and arrive the same day. Common replacement parts include:

  • Disks
  • SSDs
  • Power supplies
  • Memory
  • RAID batteries

Also, remember that some legacy parts can now be swapped out with more modern technology that still behaves the same in its host machine. Contact us on +44 (0)207 514 5683 or info@hyperscaleit.com for more information.
