    Our replacement cycle is 5 years. What's yours?

    never, apparently, still pouring water in the top and stoking the fires underneath some of them
  3. 5 years also, although we try to replace the ICT suites every 3 if we can and use the older stock elsewhere across the site. The key thing is to get a *rolling* cycle and not try replace all of them in one hit - that's never going to end well!

    Those in new builds take note - start your cycle early

    Probably more importantly - how often do you replace servers?
    Our desktop equipment is replaced reasonably frequently - we have a 3 year but may stretch to 4 policy atm. Who knows what will happen later down the line.
    With thin client it might be possible to stretch the life of a PC?
