Disk array loose drive erasure appliance for secure wipe failed RMA hdd and ssd in data center hot spare disk swap and OEM warranty

Blancco RMA-8

Securely erase OEM warranty (RMA) and other loose drives prior to returning or retiring them.

Blancco RMA-8 appliance facilitates secure on-site wiping of failed RMA drives that are being replaced in active servers and storage arrays. In data centers, failed return merchandise authorization (RMA) drives are often physically destroyed or stored past return deadlines, resulting in unnecessary drive replacement costs.

Secure on-site data erasure for HDDs and SSDs enables data centers to use OEM drive warranties without exposing sensitive data. In comparison to purchasing new drives, data centers can gain significant savings with onsite disk wiping.

Seamless and secure erasure process

  • Simultaneous erasure of SATA, SAS, Fiber Channel, and SCSI drives.
  • Supports all leading erasure standards, including DoD 5220.22-M and NIST 800-88.
  • Supports the erasure of SATA SSDs with Blancco’s multifaceted, patent-pending erasure method that includes automatic freeze-lock removal.
  • Turnkey operation with no customer modifications required.
  • Rugged industrial hardware means no wear and tear on components.
