Welcome to the fibreStore

Who operates the fibreStore?

The fibreStore is operated by Dr. Beate Ruch and Dr. Reinhard Wolf. The sole proprietorship Beate Ruch, Silicon Graphics Workstations and Storage has been established in 1999, and since then deals with the remarketing of very high performance computer hardware. At first, we focussed exclusively on the resale of Silicon Graphics / SGI workstations, servers and HPC systems and expanded our portfolio from 2003 to include SAN/NAS/Storage. We have been able to fully satisfy even the most specific requirements of more than 1,500 customers since the onset of our company.

Why fibreStore?

We have been active for more than 10 years in the remarketing using the services of popular internet auction & sales platforms and with this shop we want to offer a fully comprehensive insight into our portfolio. In the fibreStore you will always find up to date information about our extensive stock in the areas of high performance computing and storage. In case you are looking for a product not listed in the online catalogue, please do not hesitate to call or send an email message.

What's in the fibreStore?

fibreStore offers a wide range of off-lease computer hardware in proven and reliable quality at very competitive prices. We regularly offer workstations and servers, SAN/NAS systems and accesssories for small and medium businesses and larger enterprises. Here you will find products of the market-leading hardware companies such as: NetApp, EMC², Xyratex, Brocade, QLogic, Emulex and their OEM partner SGI, SUN/Oracle, HP/Compaq, IBM and Dell.

How to order?

Your product request will always be processed individually. The fibreStore shopping system forwards your order inquiry via email to us. We will then contact you either through email or by phone and you will receive confirmation wrt availability & the total cost of the products purchased.
If you dislike an online store system please do not hesitate to contact us directly with your request. Address data & email link can be found on top of this page.

What does off-lease imply?

Off-lease usually means that the hardware has already seen service for one to three years. If not stated otherwise all our products hence are used items. Occasionally, we may receive "new old stock" from surplus production and stock consolidations. Such products will always be tagged accordingly.
All hardware offered and sold through the fibreStore is subjected to a multi-step service program before leaving our premises. This usually includes basic cleaning, specific technical audits, firmware or operating system updates and finally, for items that require shipping, the appropriate packaging and packing to ensure a safe transport.

You are welcome to pick up the goods ordered in either our warehouse near the Frankfurt/Main airport or our local premise in Giessen!

We will always try to offer the most convenient method for you.
