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.

  • Disassemble Equipment
  • Prep & Removal of Equipment to be Transported

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 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

PTS' Peter Sacco featured in CRN's 2015 Top 20 Data Center Designers and Builders

2013 Ernst & Young - Peter   Sacco with prize.jpgRegardless of the size of the data center, the right mix of IT, power and cooling equipment, and how that equipment is integrated into the facilities, is key to maximizing efficiency and providing the flexibility to expand as needed. Successful integration of equipment into data centers depends on finding the right companies with site preparation, design, construction and management expertise. Those organizations also need to be able to quickly turn the new facilities over to customers and help manage the transition.

Such designers and builders are often the unsung heroes of the data center. But not in CRN, as noted in the CRN 2015 Top Data Center Designers and Builders list.

Aquatherm: High Performance, Long-Lasting, and Environmentally Friendly Pipes and Fittings

Ideally hydronic pipe should not be affected by the fluid it is carrying, and the fluid should not be affected by the pipe. Sadly, many HVAC system use a compromised material called carbon steel for hydronic piping. Water oxidizes steel, which causes pitting, scale build-up, and eventually leads to failure of the pipe. These effects are mitigated through the use of closed systems where possible, chemical treatment, PH-treatment, etc. Still, metal pipes produce rust which gums up valves, clogs strainers, and accumulates in low velocity areas. 
Wonder if you did not have to compromise? Wonder if an ideal piping material was available… an economically feasible material that required no maintenance? Wonder no longer. Consider Aquatherm.
  • Aquatherm PipingDoes not rust
  • Provides a lower installed cost compared to other welded or soldered system
  • Has the lowest friction loss of any pipe on the market
  • Does not require chemical treatment
  • Does not require an open flame, glues, or chemicals to fuse it together; It uses heat fusion to bond
  • Limit liability of theft on job sites (it has no scrap value, unlike copper which is often stolen from job sites)
  • Requires less external insulation (due to R-value~1)
  • Resist condensation if left exposed
  • Mitigates sound transmission and physical vibrations
  • Can be directly buried underground
  • Will not burst if water freezes within it (above –20F)
  • Forms a monolithic piping system when assembled (no gaskets, solder, weld slag, glue, etc.)
  • Approved for HVAC, domestic water, sprinkler systems, irrigation, chemical drains, and food grade applications
  • Available in pipe sizes ranging from 3/8” up to 24” diameter
  • Proven 40+ year track record of installation around the world
