In the earlier article on Third Party Maintenance support, we introduced the concept and its benefits over the standard warranty-based support model used by OEMs. This time, we will look at the role of the product life cycle in getting the best out of your TPM service.
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.
In our day and age, the limits of personal and collective success are pretty much drawn along the lines of an invisible but widely felt digital divide. Yes, we are referring to a gaping chasm that divides societal categories and regions into those that have access to modern IT and communication resources and those with no such privilege.
Planning a data centre relocation is a job of tremendous significance, whether you operate a big organization or a small business.
The Climate Neutral Data Center Pact is the herald of new realities in the IT and electronic equipment recycling and recovery industry.
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.
Your IT assets are precious but they are not immortal. No matter how well they performed, they will inevitably reach the end of the line in terms of their functionality. An immediate solution presents itself: let’s buy new pieces of equipment.
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. This complex operation is spread over several systems that involve working with extremely important and expensive equipment.
Sooner or later, your servers will reach the end of their life cycle and face decommissioning as a complex and often stressful operation. Since your company’s data center is the true “center” of all of your applications and sensitive data, planning and carrying out a project of this scale can be a nerve-wracking experience.
Businesses are growing increasingly dependent on technology, and as a result, the number of available hardware options is growing. This also means that businesses are increasingly faced with a major dilemma - what to do with retiring computing, as well as that which reached end-of-life?
The majority of today’s businesses would not be able to operate without their data centers. Thus, it’s surprising to hear that IT managers report lacking in resources needed to keep an eye on the data centers and tackle any issues at their inception.
Hardware management, especially for data center operators, gave birth to IT asset disposition (ITAD), a practice that helps businesses get the most out of their existing gear, helps them replace old gear, and ensures businesses remain compliant with data protection regulations.
The first step towards a successful decommissioning of outdated data center gear is always the same - planning. Without properly laying out the blueprint for the operation, its demise is almost inevitable.
There are three basic elements to the lifecycle of every data center gear - the acquisition of hardware, its maintenance, and its disposal. While historically, data center operators turned to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) for the first two and handled the latter themselves, when it comes to maintenance, there is a cheaper, and more effective solution - third-party maintenance (TPM).
Third-party maintenance (TPM) providers are growing more popular, even among the most skeptical of organizations. Regardless of their size, the industry they’re serving, or the amount of hardware and software they have deployed, organizations are growing increasingly aware of the importance of TPM providers in cutting costs, improving equipment efficiency, and the overall peace of mind they provide to IT and system managers.
Do you have any surplus end-of-life technology like Cisco switches that only take up valuable storage space? If you do, you’re eligible to receive some extra cash!
A data center lies at the foundation of all your company’s applications and data storage. If it ceased to function, the day-to-day operations of your business would come to a halt. The same goes for the ability to keep an eye on and store mission-critical activity.
The way most organizations nowadays approach the maintenance of IT assets is somewhat limited. They either do everything in-house or rely on the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). However, those two aren’t always the right options.

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.

Microsoft shifting Software for Open Networking in the Cloud (SONiC), an open-source networking operating system, under the Linux Foundation umbrella opens a whole lot of possibilities to innovate in a space that’s in need of it.
Much like the way Linux forever changed the world of operating systems and databases, SONiC (Software for Open Networking In the Cloud) is changing the way companies, particularly enterprises, look at networking. The plug-and-play extensibility, third-party support, zero downtime during in-service upgrades, and a whole bunch of other benefits revolutionized what a networking environment is and can be.

With rising energy costs and bandwidth demands, reducing a data center’s operating expenses (OpEx) to more predictable and controllable levels is imperative. For 2023 and beyond, there is a power-efficient data center solution that tackles the economic and managerial sides of the equation: third-party maintenance.
When it comes to maintaining your IT infrastructure, picking the right model is the key first step toward tidy operations.It’s no secret that frequent IT maintenance is vital for every IT system, no matter how big or small, remains secure, stable, and efficient. Generally speaking, there are two ways to go about it: in-house and third-party.
When it comes to renewing their IT maintenance contracts, many companies experience difficulty. For most of them, one of the biggest issues is choosing between the two options for long-term maintenance: Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and Third-Party Maintenance (TPM) support providers.
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.
Even before the Linux Foundation took charge of the network operating system (NOS), Software for Open Networking in the Cloud or SONiC, as it’s widely known, was poised to alter the way numerous enterprises, hyperscalers, and service providers operate their networks.
It is essential for data centers and businesses of all sizes to properly dispose of their IT assets in order to lower operational costs, protect sensitive data, and maintain the overall health of their systems.
