When coordinating a data center decommissioning project, there are many factors to consider and roles to assign. Will your used equipment be sold or recycled? Who will manage the vendors and contractors involved? How will the space be restored when the process is completed? With so many different factors to consider, having a team of professionals to guide the process can end up saving you time and money on your infrastructure removal project.
At CI Group, coordinating turnkey data center decommissioning projects is something our team of specialists is well equipped to handle. We manage every aspect of your building’s decommissioning project and are able to remove your data center infrastructure equipment and return the space to your exact specified state in the most efficient and cost-effective method possible.
To begin, knowing whether to recycle or decommission critical data center equipment will help you in your decision-making process. CI Group provides a feasibility study to our clients to aid in this process. The feasibility study examines value analysis, disposal costs, and recovered value of the equipment present on site. Armed with this knowledge, strong decisions can be made in relation to what should be done with the infrastructure equipment.
