Data center decommissioning services from TES
Seamless on-site services
We remove all racked equipment, hard drives and services so we can move it all to a staging area for prep and final processing. Our experts conduct a full inventory of your entire data center so we can provide the make, model and serial number for each unit and reconcile discrepancies. We then either data wipe by performing a drive overwrite to exceed the NIST 800-88 standard or physically destroy your storage media.
After identifying unused cables and removing them from your facility, we reconcile equipment lists and decommission assets, ready to ship to a TES facility and ready for our expert logistics team.
Our detailed testing procedures validate the functionality of your assets, allowing us to identify the value of your parts. Our decision tree algorithm allows us to determine whether parts generate a higher value by harvesting and selling those parts - or reselling as a whole. Our relationships with hyperscale datacenter companies give us access to a variety of resale markets so we can leverage to drive higher values.
The diversity of our footprint gives us local market knowledge and we always use a data analytics-driven approach to track pricing, sellers and buyers, so we can sell products in the right place at the right time - depending on where pricing is best.
Just like nature reuses and recycles its resources, we believe the same should be true of data centers. With global IT the third largest global carbon emitter, TES’ certified recycling process ensures all recycled materials are returned into a reusable commodity while our robust sales channel maximizes lifetime value, boosts value recovery and creates a lifetime value multiplier.
In the final step of the decommissioning process, our inventory management system enables automatic identification of assets and parts sustainable for redeployment so they’re available from our forward-stocking locations.
