Data Center Decommissioning Services

By:

Data Center Decommissioning FacilityData centers are extremely complex to manage, simply due to the volume and variety of technology used in its daily operation. From the networking and communication equipment, through power, storage, racks, cabling, etc, and on through HVAC systems, raised flooring, generators, etc, the task of decommissioning a data center is far from trivial.

While decommissioning a data center, decisions also must be made regarding which equipment, if any, can be reused in the new data center. Some of the equipment will need to be disposed of and/or destroyed (in the case of hard drives), and some of the equipment may be resold. These tasks alone present their own set of unique challenges, and require significant amounts of time and labor to find an appropriate facility, to decommission the equipment in question, and to transport the decommissioned equipment to the disposal facility.
