Utilization of Old Equipment


Utilization of Old Equipment

Technology is always changing and computers and systems are becoming more advanced.  Over time, you upgrade your computer systems and hardware and are left with both the new systems and the old system that you used.  The question is what can you do with your old systems in which you can still utilize them in an effective manner.

According to Tech Republic, one thing you can do is to continue to use the hardware for things such as training.  “Especially in thin client application environments that don’t depend on compute-in-the-box (think cloud), older equipment is ideal for training, which historically operates on thin budgets and is always looking for a resource infusion.  You can also use older equipment for testing purposes, as long as your test results will accurately emulate the production environment they are targeted for.”

This is one of many ways you can still utilize your old equipment without dumping it in the garbage.  If you have any questions about your systems, disposing them, or are looking to upgrade, contact Marcus Networking at 602.427.5027.
