Data Center Shutdown

Corporate Data Center Decommissioning

Companies created their own data centers to manage and control their data as it grew increasingly important to their day-to-day operations. GP has worked with these companies for years to help them handle the decommissioning and removal of data center equipment.

Today, we routinely work in real-time scenarios, removing and deleting hard drives and tapes from various servers and racks as part of our regular routine. In addition, we assist in the management of the permanent shutdown of data centers held by companies.

By 2025, 80 percent of companies, compared to 10 percent currently, will have decommissioned its traditional data center.

According to Gartner's "The Data Center is Dead, and Digital Infrastructures Emerge" report, published on April 13th, 2018,

Staged Decommissioning of Older Equipment

On-premise data centers are downsized or permanently shut down when firms move their IT infrastructure to the cloud.

GP can make these data centers look if they were never there in the first place. In most cases, this type of work is carried out in accordance with an established project schedule and plan.

By automating decommissioning and equipment removal, GP frees up IT asset managers and data center administrators to concentrate on running the live production environment.

We decommission servers and racks, SANs, network gear, cabling, telecommunications, and end-user equipment on a regular basis..

Our support services include cable removal/mining, lease return, data destruction, inventory reporting, packing and shipping, and asset sales and recycling.

We guarantee that our work is done in a systematic, secure, and safe manner so that there is no disturbance to the live environment.




The following are some of the services we offer:

  • Decommission Idle Equipment –In order to free up space, we remove all unused racks and cabinets. Preparation for shipping begins with the transfer of equipment to a staging area
  • Cable Mining – if necessary, removing old cables
  • Lease Returns – Prepare leased equipment for return to the lessor by completing the "Lease Returns" task list
  • Data Destruction – All data-bearing assets must be destroyed, either on-site or at GP processing facility
  • Asset Tracking and Shipping – A physical inventory count of equipment will be performed by GP, and any discrepancies with the client's equipment list will be documented. In order to ship decommissioned assets, we have to reconcile equipment inventories. We'll get your equipment all set up, pack it up, and ship it out
  • Refurbish, Resell and Recycle Equipment – The data center equipment is shipped to an GP facility, where it is refurbished, resold, and recycled as needed. GP facilities are located throughout the world. This includes moving servers to another company-owned location when necessary. Equipment that is no longer needed is disposed of in a responsible manner.
