Hello camelemc,

Comparison of Secure Erase Vs Data Destruction

>Secure Data Erase

>Data Destruction


> All data is overwritten

> Customer data is encrypted - key destroyed


> Typically 2 site visits required

> Can be run remotely

Time requirement

> Approximately 12 Hours

> Approximately 1 hour

Extra's needed

> A KVM and 2 dongles per brick

> None

Certificate for customer

> Yes

> Yes

System Re-deployment

> Rescue image required

> Standard install

Equipment restrictions

> None

> Must have an encryption capable system

Internally, the detailed validation procedure is available on DELL EMC SolVe Desktop > Miscellaneous Procedures.

If you do not have access to this, I recommend to open a Servie Request with XtremIO Support - this can be routed to the relevant team to service your exact requirements with you.

Regards, Anne
