Server Replacement Cycle | Microsoft Midsize Business

Quote:
Retirement planning: Your servers need it too
By Rich Freeman

For better or worse, companies are keeping their servers around longer. Thanks to tighter IT budgets and more durable and powerful hardware, most companies no longer replace servers every two or three years. Now, some wait as long as six years. Is this a good thing?

In Summary:
• Businesses should base server replacement cycle on concrete performance metrics, not depreciation schedules.

• Creating a long-term server replacement cycle that reduces your odds of updating servers too soon or too late.

• Assigning servers to new and less demanding tasks, rather than discarding them, can be a great way to get more value from old hardware.
