SDS has successfully developed a scalable recertification program focused on Open Compute hardware, which enables used data center equipment to operate at performance capabilities comparable to brand new equipment.
Aghamiri and Verdun point to the joint company’s focus on datacenter hardware innovation: “We share the same vision of disrupting hardware supply and offering market solutions in which reuse, sustainability, optimization, scale and performance intersect, thus opening doors for endless possibility for our clients,” they said.
Sidley Austin LLP and Gide Loyrette Nouel acted as legal advisors to ITRenew and Orrick,
Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP served as legal advisor to SDS and its sellers.
