As information technology became essential for business operations, organisations built, owned and operated data centres of all scales to manage and control their data. Gentronics helps these companies manage decommissioning and removal of data centre assets where that equipment has become obsolete.

Today we frequently work in live environments, retiring select servers and racks and destroying hard drives and tapes while ring-fencing the live equipment. We also help manage the permanent shut-down of company owned data centres where those organisations are moving to third party or cloud hosted environments.

Decommission Obsolete Equipment
We systematically remove all racked equipment and cabinets. Equipment is moved to a staging area and prepared for shipping.

Removal of network, data and power cabling
We will access and remove redundant cabling where necessary.

Lease Returns
We can prepare your redundant equipment of end-of-lease returns to the lessor.

Data Destruction
We can systematically erase, wipe or physically shred all of your data bearing assets such as hard drives and tapes. Learn more about our data destruction services.
