Is It Time To Decommission Your Data Center?

Data centers are extremely complex to manage, and the task of decommissioning a data center is far from trivial. Decisions must be made regarding which equipment, if any, can be reused in the new data center. Some of the equipment will need to be disposed of and/or destroyed, and some of the equipment may be resold. These tasks alone present their own set of unique challenges, and require significant amounts of time and labor to find an appropriate facility to decommission the equipment in question, and to transport the decommissioned equipment to that facility.

The best way to simplify your decommissioning project is to enlist the help of a company having both the experience and expertise in managing the project for you. PTS can manage all aspects of your decommissioning project, having in-house experts in facilities, IT and cabling. PTS can professionally plan, disassemble, transport, dispose/recycle, and restore all your data center equipment. The service technicians at PTS have a long track record in both building and decommissioning data center equipment.

PTS Smart Open Lease for your Next Data Center or Enterprise Project

PTS Offers a Turnkey Leasing Solution

There are many compelling reasons to lease equipment. Implementing a leasing strategy provides benefits that both CIOs and CFOs can agree upon. PTS will help craft a turnkey leasing solution for your business, including Planning, Design, Sourcing, Construction, Commissioning, and IT Implementation. We will help establish scope and budget from an IT and Facility standpoint. PTS are also licensed architects and engineers, so we are able to convert our conceptual plans over to signed and sealed design documents. In addition, PTS are general contractors with lots of experience building tenant space computer rooms, and PTS can handle all the rest, including: A/V, communications, and wireless.

PTS' Smart Open Lease plan offers a single flexible financial vehicle that can include Equipment and Services across IT, Facility, and Cabling. We offer delayed repayment options coordinated with design and construction. PTS’s Smart Open Lease allows businesses to get the exact data center they want, with NO upfront costs. PTS will allow you up to six (6) months to accumulate bills and apply them toward your previously approved “open” lease, so you won't have to pay upfront for any capital expenditures for planning, design, construction management, or commissioning. You won't even have to lay out cash for any new IT infrastructure (routers, switches, servers, storage, etc), or new facility infrastructure (generators, UPSs, air conditioners, cabinets, power strips, etc). Clients don't even have to use cash for the labor (IT implementation, electrical construction, mechanical construction, data cabling, etc).

Benefits of Leasing
  • Reduce total cost of ownership
  • Manage cash flow and budgets
  • Keep debt off your balance sheet and improve your performance ratios
  • Conserve working capital and keep lines of credit intact
  • Eliminate book write-downs at the end of the equipment’s useful life
  • Lease payments may be 100% deductible as an operating expense (please review this with your accountant)
  • Keep up-to-date equipment in place with a built-in refresh strategy
  • Retrieve and download information regarding your leased assets online
  • Gain flexibility to upgrade technology to meet your changing needs
  • Simplify asset disposal – just return the equipment to your lessor
