Retirement and Decommissioning


Data centers become bloated with old and read-only systems because of data retention, acquisitions or simply because it is not a role within the IT organization.

The result is millions spent in maintenance on old software, hardware that is out of service, a lack of people who understand the technology and solution and a legacy architecture that is full of potential security holes because of out-of-support components.
