Understanding Startup Time Across 3M Devices

Studying 3 million devices can tell you a lot of things you didn’t know.

We set out with a simple yet deceivingly tricky task: let’s find out what things truly impact a slow startup time. In our quest, we made several revelations that have allowed us to answer very specific questions.

Here’s just a taste:

  • What’s the average startup time for a work device?
  • Does device age impact startup performance?
  • Does the disk type or memory capacity impact startup time?

Ultimately, this research paper proves that purchasing and upgrading to new hardware may not always be necessary. IT Leaders can in fact save millions by re-furbishing their hardware, reducing their digital waste, and still enabling employees to be more productive. It’s not a zero-sum game!
