Many companies and Government agencies have spent millions of dollars building and maintaining large datacenters from where all their IT operations centered. With the talk of Cloud and more and more organizations jumping on the bandwagon, it begs the question of what these agencies are doing about their old hardware. It’s almost painful to think that Cloud makes the traditional datacenter on which these organizations ran their IT operations practically useless, and of the millions of dollars that have been invested already as being “lost”. Perhaps this is one reason why CFO’s look back at their datacenter operations and cost statements with a bitter taste when they think about Cloud and realizing that their major investment will soon be a thing of the past.
However, for all those CFOs and out there, all hope is not lost. As part of our on-going efforts to provide end-to-end Cloud services and solutions, JHC Technology is now offering our clients with a full cycle IT asset management option that allows for the recycling of physical infrastructure assets. So while you may be thinking about what it will cost to move to the Cloud, its clear skies when you realize the long term cost savings, not just in infrastructure, but also for your entire IT operations.
In managing the logistics of a full hardware lifecycle and recycling program, JHC Technology can provide the final step to a full Cloud implementation by assisting our clients with IT asset management. This comprises services that include:
- Removal of IT assets
- Inventory services and data collection for the warehouse and on-site locations
- Market value for all IT assets removed
- Complete data destruction
- No-landfill recycling
By being able to provide our customers and partners with a hardware recycling program, JHC Technology is able to recover the market value cost of the recycled assets for our clients to utilize towards their Amazon Web Services infrastructure costs. So while organizations may have invested millions into a traditional datacenter, having the option to liquidate those assets and know that the cash generated can run a Cloud infrastructure for years to come will make every CFO sleep soundly.
In addition, with a no-landfill policy, we are committed to providing a truly green solution, reducing our customers' overall information technology footprint. Just another reason to Cloud it.
