What we do.
We determine the scope of your project and provide a competitive bid. We present a comprehensive project plan and timeline.
Inventory reconciliation audit
We compare the actual quantity of goods in stock with your financial records. Although counting all your stock items might sound overwhelming, with the right tools, an inventory audit can be efficient and valuable.
Decommission: servers, racks, systems, and cabling
We offer a wide range of decommissioning services for secure, streamlined and sustainable outcomes. We remove and replace raised floor tiling.
Fire suppression removal
Our highly-trained and qualified team will safely manage and follow a clear set of procedures for removing and decommissioning fire suppression systems.
Data shredding and sanitization with serialization
The shredding method is ideal for equipment that is well beyond its useful life and has no potential for re-use. Data sanitization refers to permanently and irreversibly removing data on an electronic device without destroying it.
We repair and paint all the walls.
We derack all hardware, remove cables (cable mining), and remove racks.
Pre-action control panel deactivation.
Tile replacement and/or cleaning (includes vacuuming subfloor).
Sign-off, and certifications provided
Boost the Value of Your Data Center’s White Space
In the world of IT, the floor plan of your data center is prime real estate. Your IT team and the entire organization can benefit by optimizing this valuable space to support your current infrastructure and future growth.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Cost savings: By removing unused or underutilized IT equipment, data centers can reduce their operating costs by lowering energy consumption, cooling requirements, and maintenance expenses.
- Improved efficiency: Removing unnecessary IT equipment can help optimize resource utilization and improve overall data center efficiency. This can also lead to better performance and reliability of the remaining IT infrastructure.
- Increased capacity: By removing unused equipment, data centers can free up space and power capacity to support future growth and expansion.
- Environmental sustainability: Data centers consume a significant amount of energy and resources, so returning to white space can help reduce their environmental impact by lowering energy consumption and reducing e-waste.
- Better security and compliance: Removing unused equipment can help simplify data center management and improve security by reducing the number of devices that need to be monitored and secured. This can also help ensure compliance with regulatory requirements and best practices.
- Inadequate planning: Failure to plan for the return to white space process can lead to unexpected downtime, loss of data, and increased costs. It is important to develop a comprehensive plan that outlines the steps involved and sets clear goals and timelines.
- Poor documentation: Without proper documentation, it can be difficult to keep track of which IT assets are being decommissioned and which ones are still in use. This can lead to confusion and mistakes during the return to white space process.
- Insufficient testing: It is essential to thoroughly test any changes made to the data center environment before returning it to production. Failure to do so can result in unexpected downtime and loss of data.
- Lack of oversight: Return to white space can involve a large number of stakeholders and IT assets. Without proper oversight and coordination, it can be difficult to ensure that all necessary steps are being taken to decommission IT assets and reclaim white space.
- Failure to consider future needs: It is important to consider future growth and capacity requirements when returning a data center to white space. Failure to do so can lead to the need for additional equipment and resources in the future, which can be costly and time-consuming.
