Server Life Cycle Management

By wtdrisco ·
We are looking to develop a Server Lifecycle Management procudure and policy. We basically try to replace servers as they get older, but we have been asked to develop a policy and procedure and was hoping some of you would share what you have in place in your IT department.

Talk to your Accounting Department

And find out what the Tax Cycle involved where you are is and base your Procedures on that. So that when you stop being able to write off a Decent Amount due to Depreciation per year on each server you replace them with new units. Hopefully before they start to produce reliability issues.

At my job, the newest equipment goes to the Domain Controllers. After approx. 2 years, we rolldown to file and print servers. After another two years, we roll down from larger offices to smaller offices. After approx. 6 years, those servers for the smaller offices go towards testing, DR, development, etc. On the application side, the newest equipment goes to Application servers and then Database servers, depending on the priority of the application.

Procedure or Policy

by hrbjr In reply to Server Life Cycle Managem ...

Just wondering if you were able to put anything together for this as I am tasked to come up with something for my company.

I'm looking for a template or some kind of document that might exist out there that could be edited to our needs.
