Whether storage arrays and SANs are leased or owned, data on this equipment need to be destroyed. Like other data bearing devices, most companies are opting to destroy data on storage arrays and SANs while equipment is still within their custody.
Return to Lessor or Manufacturer – Returning leased equipment to lessors with live data presents security risks during transport. SRS offers on-site data erasure where multiple drives can be erased at the same time. This service allows for efficient data wiping of SANs and allows companies to return leased equipment, data-free, eliminating any data security risks.
Prepare Equipment for Resale – If SANs and storage arrays are owned instead of leased, data erasure at your facility prepares the equipment to be reused or sold, with no data security risks.
Destroy Storage Media to Ensure Data Security – Destruction of storage media can be done at your location or at SRS processing facility. Storage media destruction, through shredding, crushing or degaussing, is the fastest data destruction method, but eliminates any resell potential from the retired equipment.
The technology supporting networked storage continues to change and varies with each manufacturer. SRS has broad experience and technical expertise in working with equipment from different manufacturers and companies who have a complex server environment.
SRS can perform a site audit which would include an equipment survey to identify your storage media infrastructure. We can then develop a custom technical solution for effectively destroying data on all storage devices designated to be removed from your live environment.
