4 Reasons to Optimize Your Data Center Budget

If you’re a data center manager, the tension between maximizing data center efficiency and staying within your data center budget is constant. One of the goals is to focus on CapEx expenditures that deliver clear ROI.

Many CapEx investments don’t give immediate returns. However, our customers tell us that one investment that has delivered both immediate and ongoing long-term returns is a ServerLIFT data center lift.

How? By reducing the amount and cost of labor associated with server rack maintenance and service. ServerLIFT lifting solutions also enable a single tech to move heavy and expensive servers in a fraction of the time it would take to move them manually, even with multiple techs doing the job. This immediately increases efficiency (and obviously reduces the number of techs required to move a piece of equipment).

Our customers also report a 100 percent accident-free data center record, post implementation. Unsafe practices and off-brand or “alternative” lift devices are expensive, both in terms of dangers to important staff and replacement of damaged equipment. These are all tangible and preventative financial benefits. 

However, it’s quite common for the need for a lift to be out of sync with the funds available. To help our customers with this problem, we have worked hard to give you options.  

April, September, and December are busy months at ServerLIFT headquarters. That’s because we’re set up to cater to the needs of fiscal quarterly lift machine purchases and data center budget surpluses. Although we stay busy all year, we ramp up on everything from production to personnel to ensure you’re not left hanging at these crucial times of the year. We think all of your suppliers and vendors should set their schedule to accommodate you and your budgets rather than the other way around. 

Want to take good advantage of your quarterly or annual unused budget? Here are four reasons how a ServerLIFT data center lift purchase can help. 

Why Buy a ServerLIFT with Your Budget Surplus?

#1: It’s a One-Time Purchase

Purchasing a ServerLIFT solution is a one-time investment that pays off for years to come. Functional add-ons—specifically extended warranties, attachments, and service requests—will ensure that you get full value out of your ServerLIFT server-handling device.

 #2: Delivers a Net-Positive Impact on Future Budget

By purchasing a ServerLIFT solution, every future quarterly budget is impacted by the potential for lower costs associated with the ability to quickly pull, service, and replace a piece of racked equipment using a single technician. This can increase server life and reduce downtime and server replacement costs. 

#3: Makes Operations More Efficient

A properly designed data center lift increases operational efficiency and provides safety for your personnel and your expensive hardware investments. You will see that efficiency in quick daily moves and larger deployment projects that require fewer employees to do them.

#4:  Optimizes Your Data Center Budget ROI  

ServerLIFT-brand products give you a great return on investment. They reduce operational downtime and labor costs. It saves otherwise hidden costs, including expenses associated with  workplace injuries from manually handling equipment and lost productivity because employees are out on sick leave. 

Agile Budgeting   

Having leftover funds in your quarterly or annual budget can be a blessing and a curse because you need to make fast and wise data center purchasing decisions. The decision needs to support long-term data center planning while immediately minimizing data center costs.

Budget crunch times can be periods of success for our customers because we:

  • Partner with you; we’ll work together to come up with the best solution for your data center(s) and staff
  • Can easily handle the spike in orders at the end of each quarter to meet shipment and delivery deadlines

The ServerLIFT team takes a proactive supply chain approach. We ensure that we do everything possible to meet finished product needs and schedules. We want you to be able to get your ServerLIFT solution as close as possible to when you want to use those fiscal quarterly budget dollars. We do this by:

  • Handling door-to-door delivery through proactive coordination with our shipping carriers based on your schedule
  • Accounting for holiday shipping lane and other traffic bottlenecks 
  • Working within your requirements for budget period spend, including shipping or delivery within the same quarter or fiscal year as needed

We can even help make your CapEx expenditure as flexible as an OpEx expenditure. You can include a ServerLIFT data center lift in your budget using our alternatives to a full, upfront purchase, including:

  • Rent-to-own, where rental payments can apply to purchase
  • 数据中心电梯回购计划 for when you already have a lift on hand that isn’t designed for your needs and/or that you aren’t satisfied with.

All data centers have their similarities, but they also have their own unique infrastructure and/or operational characteristics. All data center managers are interested in and responsible for optimizing their CapEx and OpEx  budgets to meet long-term needs with solutions that deliver optimum ROI. ServerLIFT is an ideal partner to meet those needs in terms of physical server handling and rack management. To learn more about ServerLIFT solutions and programs, contact the ServerLIFT team today.
