“Curvature was migrating two of my large data centers into one. It was at the end of the migration that we realized we still had equipment remaining in both locations with only days to clean out the sites. The Curvature team sent their local guys in, plus additional support from their regional operations group, and cleaned out both data centers in parallel and met our deadline. The best part is we got money back to use for other ITAD projects!"

How much do I get for my equipment?
Equipment value depends on a variety of factors including age, condition, make/model, market conditions, end-user vs. enterprise, location, etc. Curvature is unique as we can sometimes offer value for equipment that has little to no value in the marketplace but has value to support our maintenance business.
Do I still need to erase to Department of Defense (DoD) 3-pass/7-pass standards?
No, the NIST 800-88 is the new advanced one-pass global standard. Processing time is faster and certificates of erasure provide proper indemnification.
What are my most significant expenses in removal?
The most significant costs for equipment removal are onsite processing and transportation. Some organizations require onsite services, which is fine; however, onsite services cost more and requires secure onsite logistics (e.g., secure areas for processing, packaging, trucks, etc.). The other higher cost factor is transportation. Finding a local vendor who can process and resell is key to minimizing transportation costs.
