Immediate Ways to Cut Costs in the Data Centre

Operating in a new reality. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, organisations are managing complex challenges including revenue loss, supply chain disruptions, project freezes, remote workforce demands and more. You can ease the stress that these impacts have on your IT budget with our cost-cutting data centre strategies. We can help you to reduce your OpEx costs effectively, optimise your CapEx spend and improve your cash flow.


Reduce your OpEx Costs

Lower maintenance costs

Spend 30-70% less on support for your server, storage and network equipment with our third-party maintenance (TPM) support. Redirect your savings to cover new high-priority demands in your data centre.

Longer equipment life

Extend the life of your working data centre hardware for the short or long term depending on changing business forecasts. Our post-warranty support significantly lowers your maintenance costs to help you to secure a better return on your infrastructure investment.

Greater coverage flexibility

Adjust support and terms as needed, easily and at no additional cost. Change support levels or coverage time frames according to your changing circumstances and priorities. You can choose short-term coverage to bridge the gap before a refresh.

EOL and EOSL equipment support

Keep your End-of-Life and End-of-Service-Life equipment running in your data centre according to your new budget and timing realities. With our third-party maintenance solutions, you have more control of your hardware life cycle and support options so you can focus on more immediate needs.

Optimise your CapEx Spend

Choose an alternative to a costly hardware refresh

Move forward on refreshing or upgrading your data centre by saving 30-60% with current generation or recertified hardware options. You can meet both performance and budget demands with our ready-to-go hardware options.

Consolidate or move data centre equipment

Count on cost-effective support with our experienced data centre relocation planning specialists, movers and engineers. You have the added benefit of our onsite hardware support to quickly resolve any service issues for a successful move.


Improve Cash Flow

Cash or credit options

Use the trade-in value from your decommissioned assets for cash or credit toward pressing IT priorities such as hardware purchases, data centre maintenance costs, system moves or relocations.
