Storage arrays and SANs can be rented or bought, but the data on them needs to be deleted. Most companies choose to delete data from storage arrays and SANs while the equipment is still in their possession, just like they do with other devices that hold data.
Return to Lessor or Manufacturer: When leased equipment with live data is sent back to the lessor, security risks are created during transport. GP lets you erase data on-site, and you can erase more than one drive at the same time. This service makes it easy to erase the data on SANs and lets companies return leased equipment without any data on it, which eliminates any security risks.
Prepare Equipment for Resale: If you own your SANs and storage arrays instead of renting them, erasing the data on them at your facility makes them ready to be used again or sold without putting your data at risk.
To keep data safe, destroy storage media. You can destroy storage media at your place or at GP's processing facility. Shredding, crushing, or degaussing storage media is the fastest way to get rid of data, but the equipment can't be sold again after it's been retired.
The technology behind networked storage is always changing and varies from one manufacturer to the next. GP has a lot of experience and technical know-how working with equipment from different companies and complex server environments.
GP can do a site audit that includes a survey of your equipment to find out about your storage media infrastructure. Then, we can create a custom technical solution for destroying the data on all storage devices that are going to be taken out of your live environment.
