Data Center Relocation
Dealing with Excess Equipment During a Data Center Move
Consolidating your data centers down to a smaller number of locations can generate quite a bit of excess IT equipment. In many cases, you may not have the resources necessary to inventory the data center equipment, and you may not need it all for your new strategy. However, you’ll often need any and all excess technology removed from the premises of each data center location before the respective leases expire. Liquid Technology, an experienced ITAD provider, can help remove excess data center equipment while securely destroying sensitive data, all before the end of those leases.
Secure and Efficient Data Center Relocation
Liquid Technology can help your data center relocation plan run smoothly by facilitating:
- Secure destruction of all data in accordance with government and industry regulations
- Sale of salvageable equipment for a suitable return on their investment
- Environmentally responsible recycling of any decommissioned equipment
We will propose a customized IT asset management plan that includes a fast and fair equipment evaluation and resale plan. The plan can also detail the complete logistical management and asset recovery brokerage negotiation, as well as an organized de-installation schedule customized to meet your management’s needs. All media would be wiped or destroyed on-site in accordance with DOD 5220.22M and NIST standards. All end-of-life equipment would then be disposed of according to e-Stewards and R2 guidelines.
Getting the Best Value from Old Data Center Equipment
Just because you are shutting down a data center doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get the best return possible on that investment. Liquid Technology’s team can broker your data center equipment to make the most of your relocation and generate a successful return. Our professionals can handle every logistical aspect of your data center relocation, allowing your company to focus on the operations of your primary data center locations.
