Sandpiper is selected for Global Disk Eradication Services

Vail, CO. – August 18, 2013 - For Immediate Release

Sandpiper Data, the industry’s most trusted provider of vendor-neutral IT services and solutions, said today that its Data Compliance Services division has launched a global, multi-year, multi-location disk eradication project for one of the world’s largest financial services companies.

The project scope encompasses very large data centers both globally and throughout the U.S. and is designed to eradicate petabytes of data from failed and retired disk drives. Prior to the project’s initiation the customer had been physically destroying, degaussing or shredding most drives rather than risking any release of data. This service has resulted in significant savings for the customer. Sandpiper Data employs it’s proprietary, DoE and DoD compliant-certified eradication process – which it performs onsite at the customer’s data centers – to enable the customer to recover hundreds of dollars of value (per disk) from their retired or failed disk drives while eliminating the risk of data falling into the wrong hands. “In numerous engagements, including this one, we have demonstrated a rapid and substantial ROI for customers who choose our service to eradicate data rather than destroy their disk drives” said Larry Strain, Senior Director of Data Center Services at Sandpiper Data. “With this project we have proven that our process not only provides immeasurable value to our customers, but it can scale massively on an international basis.”
