Media Sanitization and The Cloud

Are you or any of your clients migrating to the cloud or moving to a new location? Moving a data center can be an arduous task, especially when it comes to the physical move of data center hardware and the security of the data on that hardware. Often times when an organization is moving a data center there is equipment that is going to be redeployed, but there is also equipment that is going to be obsolete and need to be disposed of in a proper manner. It is extremely important and advantageous to the organization to hire a vendor that can handle both aspects of the move, (1) equipment redeployment and (2) equipment disposition. Where can one find a company that offers this type of one-stop-shopping in regards to data center moves and relocation services? Call XTechnology Global, a data center solutions company, located in Danvers, Massachusetts to learn how we can help: 978-539-8310.
