What to do with Decommissioned Hardware During a Cloud Migration
So, you are landed with the initiative to migrate your company’s data to the cloud. A wise choice perhaps, as it offers improved scalability, reliability, lower costs, better-quality analytics, and varied disaster recovery options.
You conduct your research into the best provide, collate all the varied price options, present your case to the heads of department and get sign off from procurement.
Well done, but now the real hard work begins. Embracing your migration passage will be a layered learning process full of challenges. One of the biggest cost factors overlooked by most businesses during migration is to implement an asset recovery program.
Take time to think about your asset recovery program
Decommissioning equipment during cloud migration is generally the last thing on most people’s mind. Often WEEE disposal companies are bought in to take away equipment, with little regard to the financial impact this has on the business. Not only are you potentially losing a big chunk of money you have both environmental and security implications to handle.
Is there value in your perfectly good equipment?
In most instances yes, it is often the main reason why WEEE disposal companies offer to take your equipment away for free. Simply to then sell it on to companies like us, who then refurbish and resell perfectly good equipment. Therefore, why pass on the opportunity to collect revenue on your existing kit you have already purchased.
