Upgrading IT equipment, whether for a data centre, an end-user or to support your overall IT infrastructure is disrupting; under the best of circumstances. Getting new equipment set up, whilst systematically removing retired equipment, needs to be done with minimal disruption to the clients live production environment.
Greensafe have recently completed a 3 year project, decommissioning 4 Data Centres across the country and processing over 70,000 assets.
Greensafe initiated the project, helping the customer to assess the risk, plan for the safe removal and execute the decommissioning, without any impact to their IT services or production environment.
Asset management and data centre auditing are regular requirements within a data centre environment. However, this requirement is often difficult to achieve, at the same time as supporting a busy customer data centre environment; not to mention, the business risk associated with this type of intrusive work. Added to the fact that Data Centre Infrastructure Management (DCIM) programs are playing an increasingly pivotal role in day-to-day data centre operations, the need for 100% accuracy is vital in order for this considerable time and effort to be worthwhile.
Greensafe understand the implications of poor decommissioning and the impact this can have on not only a project, but also a business.
The complexity of data centres today necessitates thorough and secure procedures. Through adopting key standards, like ADISA and ISO 9001, 27001, 14001 processes, Greensafe provide resilience and structure in their planning. With rigorous data protection regulations in place, we take a pragmatic and scrupulous approach to every stage of decommissioning; our customers have come to expect this as an essential part of our project management and so should you. Don’t ever settle for less.
