Data Center Decommissioning  – How It Is Done

A successful decommissioning project requires effective planning, coordinated efforts and when applicable, assurances that the live environment will not be disrupted. The steps outlined below provide a quick checklist of things to consider to manage the decommissioning project and ensure all off-site activities are properly managed.

SLS minimizes disruption through defined processes and robust project management. These processes ensure that data is destroyed (consistent with client requirements), that inventory is accurately audited and tracked, and that a plan is in place. This helps eliminate unnecessary storage costs and reduce logistics costs.
