Edges and circles may not be a natural physical fit. Yet, the principles of circular economy based on green asset recovery and smooth cloud transition apply to the decommissioning of the edge data centers with the same level of efficiency and utility as with their more well-known technological cousins - data centers.
Providing safe and secure decommissioning is not only a default demand from the customers who accept nothing less today – it’s a treasure trove of value recovery opportunities for users in demand of the decommissioning services.
Decommissioning a data center is a complex task, not a daunting one. It encompasses several stages that cover various systems and components while maintaining compliance with the local regulations, industry standards, and best practices.
Half as much of business-relevant data is now kept in the cloud. These numbers have been on the steady rise of more than thirty percent over the past five years only. This dramatic shift in technological priorities is expected only to skyrocket in the coming months.
Sooner or later, your servers’ lifespans will come to an end. When this occurs, the only sensible thing to do is to start organizing your data center decommissioning, and it is a serious undertaking.

Here are the seven steps that lead to a cost-reduced and efficient completion of a data center setup.
A data center commission is a studious, and often methodical work, that’s necessary to making sure the brand new data center works as intended. Most of the time, the process is announced in the moments before opening the data center, misleading many into believing the process is fast and simple.
Data center commissioning is still often misunderstood, which makes the definition of the term very unclear. As a result, some of the most beneficial commissioning techniques are overlooked due to differing points of view. These disagreements lead to misunderstandings, inadequate application, and disregard for commissioning procedures.
Decommissioning a data center is always a tricky ordeal. When getting rid of all the IT equipment, it's crucial to have a strategy in place for secure and timely disposal.This is where IT asset disposal (ITAD) comes into play.
