ServInt Recycles! A look Inside ServInt’s Latest Recycling Initiative

As I’m sure you know by now, ServInt has been in the webhosting business for more than 15 years.

In that time, we’ve built literally tons of servers along with truly massive network infrastructure literally all across the country. As we’ve grown and remained competitive, we’ve had to upgrade our hardware to keep up. We’ve been recycling our equipment cyclically for years. As we continually update our infrastructure, we phase out legacy hardware for newer, faster, more efficient equipment.

Recently, we completed another recycling project that encompassed all of our data centers on the East Coast. This particular run wasn’t our largest, but it was an interesting example of just how much hardware a hosting company requires over a relatively short period of time.

I travelled to our data centers in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C., snapped a few pictures of the stacks of old racked servers on their way to being recycled as well as hundreds of hard drives on their way to being shredded. When all was said and done, we recycled roughly 6 tons of equipment and shredded over 740 hard drives during this recycling run alone!

So, without further ado, here are a few of our favorite photos.
