At Keystone Technology Management, we work with each client to help meet their specific needs. One of the ways we do this is through the customization of our data center hard drive refresh. But how do you know when it’s time to finally start the refreshing process? Today, we’re going to break down a few of the common reasons why so many businesses turn to our data center services.

Make it Efficient

One of the main reasons to consider a data center hard drive refresh is to fulfill more requests and business inquiries. If your current hardware doesn’t have the capacity for holding all of this information, it is probably time to take the plunge and upgrade your system to one that can do it all and more. The most crucial aspect of any functioning business is getting work done fast, and well, so a full data center refresh could make your service quicker and, therefore, more profitable. Luckily, our team can provide on-site hard drive destruction throughout NY, meaning we come to you and get the ball rolling for a full refresh at your convenience. If efficiency is something you’ve intended to improve, don’t wait until it’s too late. Reach out today and see what we can offer your company for data destruction, recycling, and more!

Dangerously Out of Date

The industry standard for data center hard drives is that after four years, a full refresh is required. While this timeline isn’t necessarily possible for every business to follow, hardware will inevitably hit an age where it is no longer worth the expense. If your equipment hits the point of borderline dysfunctionality, it’s time to call us and kickstart a data center refresh. Keeping your hardware up to date will help protect your data, so why not take the plunge and finally get a new setup that will help your business thrive? With our customizable steps for beginning your refresh, we’ll figure out the perfect solution for your company.

Expensive Maintenance

The overall higher costs that come with keeping your old hard drive system up and running might be more than enough to sway your company toward a refresh. As with many hardware purchases, a server maintenance contract is essential for data centers. Once that runs out, however, you’ll be relying on third-party maintenance suppliers until you finally upgrade. Our team at Keystone Technology Management is here to help ensure your old hardware is disposed of properly. All data is destroyed and unable to be recovered, so there’s no need to worry about a breach. Reach out to us today and see how our refresh will help end those climbing maintenance costs in the long run.

More Than Just One Step

At Keystone Technology Management, we focus on much more than just helping businesses make the correct decisions for their I.T hardware and data. We work to ensure the safe destruction of any data stored on the equipment we remove, as well as offer buyout and recycling programs to ensure nothing truly goes to waste.
