Flash-based memories, like solid state drives (SSDs), are more difficult to completely and permanently erase than magnetic hard disk drives (HDDs). And, as older generation SSDs, such as Fusion-io PCIe cards, are reaching end-of-life, it’s critical that they are securely erased as part of your disposition and decommissioning policies, or outsourced to managed service providers, with best-in-class solutions. With new SSD drives, like Nonvolatile memory express (NVMe), it’s important for your organization to begin developing policies for which technologies are approved to securely erase data as they reach end-of-life.
Read this whitepaper to learn:
- Why new SSDs require certified technologies to access and perform permanent digital erasure
- How to safely dispose of different types of SSD assets by selling them for reuse or scrap value or re-deploying them for use in new or secondary application roles
- How to choose the best SSD erasure methods for your environment
