Data Center and Enterprise Erasure
Enterprise-scale erasure is complex and can include multiple types of data storage: servers, desktops, network gear, tapes, laptops, remote and hyperscale.
Manufacturer design, age, configurations, expanded and replaced components, shared space, native operating systems, live environments and inaccessible (or non-existent) ports add to the complexity.
Ready for anything
With so many storage solutions, form factors and configurations, Guardian is always prepared with a Plan B. And, often, a Plan C. We know there will be surprises.
Our eTeam brings our full set of protocols, tools, cables and IT inroads to access and then erase any server or storage device. Whether it’s via USB, SAS/SATA port, fiber-only port, loading into a caddy-based system or other known but unusual configurations, Guardian will identify the solution to access the drive to ensure 100% compliance and data erasure.
Any flavor, any size, any combination
Enterprise data center erasure projects can range from a small job of 50 individual drives to hyperscale facilities filled with racks and cabinets containing hundreds of large drives and platters.
Guardian’s data erasure (wiping) services cover it all: standalone IT assets, servers and data storage systems, hyperscale environments for wiping multiple servers or storage systems at one time. And every combination in between.
Based on drive capacities, quantity and the overall data center environment, we do our best to accurately estimate the time it will take to identify your hardware, setup and test access and then erase your devices.
For data center projects, we know there’s no such thing as typical and we’ll always work within your timeframe and access hours.
Minimal downtime and maximum service
Guardian’s trained technicians are accustomed to working in live, active environments. We’ll follow your security protocols to ensure that downtime and interruptions are minimized.
Once the data destruction is complete, we’ll issue a Certificate of Erasure with full reporting. As part of the overall project, Guardian’s secure IT packing, shipping and logistics can pack and transport all or partial shipments of devices for storage, redeployment, remarketing or recycling.
Enterprise data erasure starts with a conversation
Every situation is different. Understanding your data destruction requirements (and your data center’s challenges) helps us meet your goals.
