Closing Time

Whenever it’s time to leave your colocation or data center space, most leases and rental agreements require that the tenant restores the space back to its original condition. This requires that all the cabinets, ladder racks, electrical equipment, raised floors, and any other data center infrastructure be removed and be reused or disposed of safely. This process requires the same intricate steps to remove the equipment as was required to install the infrastructure. A professional data center decommissioning service can ease the burden of additional work in the old space after a migration and will ensure that the rental agreements and contracts are met after leaving the space.
