If your company has unwanted IT assets, they will eventually need to be securely disposed of in order to meet data security regulations. Frequently these assets will sit in storage for months and years before a decision on their future is made. In that time, their residual value is likely to fall dramatically. Data centre decommissioning is the practice of removing data centre hardware for relocation, resale, recycling, or disposal while rerouting data to new servers. A company’s data centre is the fuel that powers business operations. Due to the sensitivity of your company’s data, the decommissioning process requires thorough planning and careful execution.
Decommissioning Data Centres
Data Decommissioning involves:
De-installation of computers, servers, cabling, storage devices, power generators, and any other data centre equipment
Demolition of data centres, removal, and relocation of servers still in use
Recycling of e-waste and recovery of hardware parts that can be used to manufacture IT equipment
Disposal of e-waste materials
Disposal of end-of-life storage devices such as hard disk drives, solid-state drives, CD ROMs, and DVDs
Data sorting and shredding old data that’s not in use
What is Data Centre Decommission?
Data centre decommissioning is a structured process of de-installing servers and old data infrastructure to make room for newer data management systems. Data decommissioning has become a frequent exercise for companies as they adjust to cloud data management solutions. To decommission a data centre, you need to have a project plan, checklist, and prior communication to all departments notifying staff members about the decommissioning process.
The decommissioning checklist collects inventory on servers, desktops, laptops, printers, routers, and any other IT equipment.
A typical data decommissioning checklist contains the following items:
The Scope of the decommissioning work
A list of data centre assets and peripheral equipment
A decommissioning plan with a time frame, responsibilities, specific people in charge, budgets, and roles.
The tools required for the decommissioning work
Action Plan For physically removing infrastructure, backing up, and erasing data
A relocation plan for packing, clearing, and movement of assets
Each piece of equipment is decommissioned, tagged, wrapped, protected and placed into a specialist IT crate for transportation, this includes the cabling which is tied and referenced for recommissioning. Transportation is via our own specialist “air ride” IT fleet.
We follow a pre-agreed de-racking schedule during decommissioning ensuring an auditable record of the process.
The main benefit of this system is that it reduces downtime.
Secure IT Disposal
All hard drives are data erased and/or shredded with appropriate certification uploaded into the asset report. All other media is shredded.
Equipment that cannot be remarketed is stripped and segregated for recycling and reuse in recycled products.
Data wiping and enhanced overwrite of hard disk drives (HDD) including SSD using certified data erasure software. Every data erasure performed produces a Certificate of Erasure, with full details of the item erased and therefore a complete audit trail for data controllers ensuring the highest possible erasure standards. To find out more about our data erasure service, take a look at our IT disposal page.
We can destroy your hard drives and other media. Data destruction is carried out by qualified, vetted professionals, and uses strict protocols in order to guarantee the safe destruction of your data.
We reuse everything we can.
Components are sent to vetted recycling partners, who will reclaim their materials.
We send circuit boards off for precious metal reclamation, including gold, silver, platinum and palladium. Hard drives are shredded and the aluminium is reclaimed. Cables are processed for their copper whilst heat shields are removed from mainboards for additional aluminium and copper.
Low grade plastics such as keyboards and mice are sent for plastic recycling, and any lead acid batteries have their lead recycled and the acid safely disposed of. Data tapes are sent to an ‘energy from waste’ facility for energy recovery.
Finally, the bodies of machines are harvested for steel.
All components are separated into their various waste streams. Each must be recycled in the correct manner in order to reclaim materials and protect the environment.
Anything not suitable for resale will be sent for waste processing. Assets are disassembled so each component can be recycled.
IT Remarketing and Recycling
Remarketing and recycling services for no-longer-needed assets
Remarketing to recoup asset value, recycling to protect the environment
IT asset remarketing covers the protection of data whilst also realising the true value of the assets we process.
We can refurbish these assets rather than see them end up in landfill, reducing carbon emissions and realising the value of the assets.
We recycle all the parts of the asset so they can be reused in another IT asset in the future.
