An international company renting space in a data centre in the Netherlands cancelled its lease. 2,500 servers were no longer needed, and had to be gone within five days.

The challenge

Speed and expertise are essential in this assignment. Every additional hour that our client’s servers remain in the data center is costing them money. Furthermore, removing servers from a data center is specialized work calling for security. The equipment is jammed between that of other clients. No disturbance can be tolerated.

The approach

A certified team specializing in such jobs makes the necessary (administrative) preparations and sets off for the data center.
On arrival, they quickly and securely remove the 2,500 servers, meticulously pack them, and transport them to our location in Nieuwegein. Within 2 days, the servers have been removed. At our location in Nieuwegein, we erase the data securely and completely with Blancco.

The Results

The servers have been promptly removed from the data center to the client’s full satisfaction, yielding a high residual value.
