What are your options to recycle old servers?

Mar 15, 2021

Do you have data center equipment that isn't performing adequately? Is it time to replace it with newer, proficient hardware? Getting rid of those old servers means careful IT asset disposal must be implemented. What are your options? 

  • Work with a vendor that deals in IT Asset Disposition (ITAD); they will be able to reuse, recycle or discard old equipment. OceanTech provides all of these services and can help you recover value from a large variety of IT assets.

  • Donating to charity is another option. It offers a tax benefit based on the value of the equipment, it moves the gear off your site and it helps a needy business.

No matter which option you choose, remember to securely remove data before disposing of or donating servers. 

Many organizations opt for centralized storage for fear of data leakage when they dispose of hard drives. Removing local disks also removes the opportunity to leak important data. Protect corporate data assets by unistalling apps and operating systems before using software tools to overwrite the contents of the disk, therefore scrubbing it clean of information. 

Eliminate and destroy local hard disks. This can be done by a data destruction service. Every data containing device that passes through an OceanTech facility receives compliant data destruction. OceanTech follows a strict process to ensure data security and complete risk mitigation is achived, because deleting data isn't enough; it is imperative that local data is not recoverable.

How ITAD Reduces Costs

How ITAD Reduces Costs

Large technology companies operate data centers at a scale that’s difficult to imagine, even for those in the industry. New IT assets are what keep these organizations running. On top of the constant need for the latest, cutting-edge hardware, IT leaders in these organizations are keenly aware of the sensitive personal data that will be stored on those assets.

Why ITAD. The legal case

Why ITAD. The legal case

No two companies are exactly alike, so no two companies will have the same motivations to work with an ITAD provider. However, most companies fall into three primary categories: Legal, Ethical/Social, and Economics.
Today we’ll cover the legal reasons for ITAD; the laws that govern privacy and the penalties that follow if you don’t follow them. Most of them will cover data privacy, but there are also environmental laws you should consider.
