Sims Lifecycle Services (SLS) says it has become a partner member of the Amsterdam-based Dutch Data Center Association (DDA).
SLS says it plays a key role in managing technology shifts in data centers, in part by providing decommissioning, onsite data destruction, and resale and recycling services for retired data center equipment.
Closer collaboration with the data center community in the Netherlands, which SLS describes as “Europe’s leading digital and data center hub,” will help position the company to better understand the challenges facing data center operators and service providers when dealing with equipment at the point of change or disposal, adds SLS.
“We are excited to join the DDA and collaborate with the Dutch data center community in their efforts to grow the marketplace in the Netherlands,” says Jelle Slenters, head of business development for SLS for the European, Middle East and African market. “The partnership will help us connect with companies most in need of our services and work together with them on solutions that contribute to a circular economy for data center technology management.”
“The objective of our partner program is to actively promote the interaction between the companies in our data center community,” comments Stijn Grove, DDA’s managing director. “We already see many success stories of formed partnerships made through the DDA-network. We are very happy to welcome Sims Lifecycle Services to our network. SLS’s target to ‘create a world without waste to preserve our planet’ is a great initiative, and with their decommissioning and data destruction services they are a welcomed addition to our network.”
