How to Securely Erase Different SSDs: NVMe, PCIe and More


Flash-based memories, like solid state drives (SSDs), are more difficult to completely and permanently erase than magnetic hard disk drives (HDDs), posing a challenge for many data centers. And, as older generation SSDs, such as Fusion-io PCIe cards and newer generation SSDs, such as NVMes, are reaching end-of-life, it’s critical that you have the tools to securely erase them both as part of your disposition and decommissioning policies. Read this white paper if you’re looking to safely dispose of different types of SSD assets by selling them for reuse, scrap value or plan to re-deploy them for use in new or secondary environments.
