An IT reseller is the most important person in case of purchasing hardware devices and distributing it or selling it to consumers. He is basically the intermediary entity on whom both the manufacturers and the market depend in order to sell and buy the required devices, respectively. The IT resellers include both the retailers, who buy as well as sell the products. Then there are the value added resellers (VARs) who buy a product, add certain new elements to those and re sell the product at a higher price. This indicates that the job of an IT reseller is extremely promising, provided the person concerned has sufficient knowledge of the information technology (IT). For now, let us focus on the several hardware devices that IT resellers sell to customers as and when the need crops up.
Hard drives are the most important secondary devices for the purpose of storing the data. There is a quite a variety of hard drives available depending on the purpose of your work. Hard drives are non volatile in nature and the data is stored in digital form on platters with a magnetic surface on it. There was a time when hard drives were utilised as removable mass storage device. But now it comes as a sealed unit present inside the CPU.
There was a time when CDs were used only for the purpose to record audio files. Now they can be used to store all types of data like for instance, audio, video and other forms of data. If you are planning to store information for a long time span, then storing them in CDs are a feasible plan.
The pattern of storing data is the same for both CDs as well as DVDs. But there is a slight difference and that being, DVDs have a higher storage capacity as compared to CDs. To get the figures precise, a DVD has 6 times more the capacity to store data than a CD. This is the only reason that makes a DVD the preferred option for people than compared to CDs.
The USB flash drives can be connected to the computer with the help of the USB port that is present in the machine. This drive not only helps in storing data but also allows the easy and hassle free transfer of data from one machine to another.
These are some of the most important hardware devices those are predominantly used in the IT industry and an IT reseller makes this task easy.
