As a sustainability-driven company, Smith is proud to recognize our dynamic IT asset disposition efforts on International Data Center Day. The day is powered by 7×24 Exchange International to raise awareness of the datacenter industry and to inspire the next generation of talent. It also provides the industry an opportunity to open its doors and collaborate on information regarding total datacenter-universe best practices.
The consistently evolving nature of technology makes datacenter upgrades and refreshes inevitable. Smith offers our global customers more than electronic component procurement support – we help them with total asset decommissioning of their unwanted datacenter product. Smith’s Intelligent ITADTM program works with datacenter customers of all sizes to help our partners gain the peace of mind of knowing that their retired assets are being dispositioned responsibly.
Datacenters are home to billions of data points, making the need to protect sensitive information while still meeting regulations more critical than ever. Smith helps our enterprise customers safeguard their data and other information with dependable wiping, degaussing, and shredding services. We help ensure that our customers’ retired assets are handled in a green manner that is fully compliant with environmental laws.
Today we would like to help raise awareness around the importance of establishing a circular economy approach in line with green initiatives within supply chains. A circular economy is a system in which all materials and components are kept at their highest value and where e-waste is essentially designed out of the system. Building a circular economy for datacenter assets requires attention to detail in the areas of design, buyback or return systems, advanced recycling and recapturing, durability and repair, and urban mining. We offer flexible programs to help our partners achieve the full scope of their datacenter asset decommissioning goals.
Smith is committed to producing zero waste to landfill with responsible disposal through ITAD best-practice efforts like the circular economy approach. We look forward to continuing to help our datacenter partners gain the peace of mind of knowing that their retired assets are being dispositioned responsibly.
