How FlexStation Can Help Your Business 20 Nov 2021
As businesses start to grow and expand, so too does their amount of data. When coming to store that data, one of the most reliable ways of doing so is with hard drives. Hard drives are reliable, having been around for more than 50 years, making them well-known. But what happens when the business needs to erase mass data?
That’s where FlexStation comes in.
What is FlexStation?
WhiteCanyon’s FlexStation is the ultimate all in one solution for mass erasure of loose hard drives. No need to pick up a screwdriver or even add caddies and trays; the FlexStation can handle all major sizes and types of hard drives as well as solid-state drives. It is perfect for all businesses.
Specifically, with the FlexStation 24, released in 2018, the product is compliant with all major standards such as NIST, Common Criteria EAL2+, DoD 5220.22-M, and Sarbanes-Oxley Act. In addition, it provides 24-bay simultaneous wiping for 2.5” and 3.5” SCSI and SATA drives, is rack-mountable and has a small profile.
The technical specifications are as follows:
- 12 GB controller card
- Drive indication LED
- Number of Cooling Fans: 2
- Power Supply: 510W Single power supply
- AC Requirements: AC 90V ~ 264V Full Range
- DC Requirements: -36V ~ -72V Optional
- Memory: Kingston 16G 2 DIMM
- Slide rails are also included
How can FlexStation help businesses remove data off multiple hard drives?
Quite simply, FlexStation 24 allows companies to remove data from up to 24 hard drives at a time. All bays accept 2.5″ and 3.5″ SAS/SATA drives, so just make the connection by inserting the drives against the backplane. Then, when completed, all a person has to do is pull the drives out.
As it was designed for running multiple different batches of drives daily, the backplane can easily handle thousands of connections in its lifetime. So don’t worry about having to replace the product anytime soon as it is reliable. The FlexStation also includes a one-year replacement guarantee with the option to continue the maintenance on an annual basis.
Its straightforward interface makes it easy to track progress, letting the user know exactly which drives are wiping and where problematic ones are connected. Important drive information is displayed on the GUI grid that subsequently matches the drive configuration.
How can this ultimately help companies recycle their assets?
When it comes to wiping data from devices such as computer hard drives, there is always residue left over that someone can tap into if thrown away later. This is dangerous to companies as this data can be used against them, possibly leading to bankruptcy.
Eradicating data with WipeDrive’s FlexStation 24 completely ensures that the data is gone forever, never to be retrieved again. This is especially useful for recycling old hardware that needs to be stripped of its data beforehand. For companies doing this regularly and on a large scale, FlexStation 24 is the ideal solution to such problems that occur.
Disposing of obsolete devices by destroying them can be harmful to the environment and doesn’t necessarily guarantee complete data destruction. So by erasing the data via FlexStation 24 and recycling instead, companies will safely dispose of their assets.
