Hardwarereseller-Pricings...is this normal?

4 posts in this topic

Good Morning all,

im a DBA and shortly envolved in Hardwarepurchases. We are mainly using fujitsu-servers, ordered by some fujitsu-reseller. Now getting a look at the prices i was astonished! In EVERY offer we get the CPU-Prices are WAY above the intel arc recommended customer price. (add 500 - 2000 bucks to the listprice, depending on the exact cpu!!)

Is this normal in serverbuisness or is our reseller crappy?

 

Please help the new gui!

There are a lot of variables at play including volume, geography, etc. I'd take it up with the reseller directly and ask them to justify the increased cost and see what they say.

I'd go hit HP, Dell, Cisco, etc. websites too to see what they price. A reseller normally gets a big chunk off, but it's usually still not cheap.

 

Have you talked to other resellers?

Please excuse the late reply!

No, we didn't ask other resellers, because of company-politics.

Looking backwards, every order / offer is similar:

- we ask for a specific server

- reseller sends offer with some fantastic moon-pricings and tells: this are fantastic moon-prices, we can do it much better!

- we ask for much better prices

- reseller sends offer with some realistic prices.

EVERY time...for years. This is odd!
