Data center asset disposal is an essential part of the data center lifecycle and it’s important to choose the right service provider to ensure that the process is completed safely, securely, and in compliance with all relevant regulations. When evaluating companies to assist you with asset disposal, here are eight important factors to consider:
1. Data security
One of the most important considerations when disposing of data center assets is ensuring that all data is securely erased or destroyed, in order to prevent any data breaches or loss of sensitive information.
2. Environmental responsibility
The company responsible for the disposal of data center assets must be knowledgeable about and comply with environmental regulations and standards. This includes the safe and proper disposal of hazardous materials, such as batteries and electronic waste.
3. Logistics and transportation
The safe and secure transfer of data center assets to the disposal location is a key part of the asset disposal process.
Choosing a service provider that is fully compliant with all relevant OSHA and EPA regulations is important to ensure compliance and that the project is completed safely and securely.
5. Asset valuation and remarketing
An experienced asset disposal company should be able to provide accurate valuations of used data center equipment and also help to remarket the equipment to maximize the return on your company’s investment.
6. Reporting and documentation
Comprehensive and accurate reporting and documentation processes are essential for transparency and to maintain records of the asset disposal process.
7. Data center decommissioning
Asset disposal is an important part of data center decommissioning, and it’s important to choose a company that has expertise in both areas.
8. Project management
In addition, a professional asset disposal company should be able to provide comprehensive project management services to ensure that the entire process is completed on time and within budget.
