Data eradication and magnetic media tape reuse for green computing

Recycling Magnetic and Electronic Media - Video Tapes, etc.

Data eradication of sensitive data processing media such as computer tape is a growing problem. Millions of data tapes end up shredded or eradicated and tossing into landfills. BUT, magnetic media is reusable -- and REUSE for the same function is the highest form of recycling.

Not only must companies maintain data for government record-keeping -- but keeping data TOO LONG is also a risk management issue. And then destroying the data and recycling the plastic and magnetic materials is the next stage of the data management process. The highest form of recycling is REUSE. Magnetic media's data can be eradicated and the tape itself reused -- which is a greener solution for these reusable materials that eventually end up shredded for their plastic.

Data management is also involved in data center relocation and migration. Whether moving across town or across the country, data center specialists develop a detailed scope of work and help plan the migration timeline. Pre-planning, site survey, and logistical management is required by bonded professionals to meet the needs of sensitive material. Highly trained and bonded personnel at both ends of the migration is important to maintain the order and integrity of the data products.

Managing Secure Data Eradication

Secure data eradication starts with identifying the tapes that need to be cleaned, and making sure current data tapes are NOT included in the inventory to be wiped clean.

Tapes are carefully sorted, labeled, locked, and loaded for door-to-door service. GPS tracking and driver precautions are part of data eradication service to ensure safe delivery to the eradication site.

Infinity Data Solutions provides complete data transport and eradication services:

  • On-site audit of barcode media by VOLSER
  • 13/7 Secure data center with access control monitoring
  • Second audit upon arrival at the secure facility
  • Data eradication to US DOD Standards and National Industrial Security Program Operating Manual
  • Complete volumen overwrite
  • Secure web accessible monitoring system to remotely observe data eradication of your data.
  • Letter of data eradication and CD of media sanitized by VOLSER number for permanent archiving.
  • Infinity is a member of the EPA WasteWise program to monitor and measure their waste diversion and reduction progress.

Secure Data Transportation

Data that is being transported for data center relocation or data eradication requires special transportation handling. Dedicated ground transportation is just one part of the security measures required to ensure data security. Locked, banded and driven non-stop with the vehicle attended at all times by a driving team is part of security measures for data management.

Some companies, such as Infinity Data Solutions, add satellite monitoring surveillance systems to track the vehicle and even escort vehicles to follow and monitor the progress and maintain constant surveillance of the secure cargo vehicle.

The EPA WasteWise Program

Infinity's commitment to waste reduction is core to their service. They responsibly eradicate data and prepare the computer tapes for reuse -- which is the highest form of recycling value.

Tapes are bar-coded, scanned, audited, and tracked at very critical step. Certified magnetic media that is available for sale is certified to perform better than new tape.

Proprietary software ensures each tape performs to rigorous standards that exceed ANSI specified requirements established for new media.

When tapes are not viable for reuse, the data is eradicated and the tape is physically destroyed in compliance with EPA guidelines.

EPA's WastWise Program is a free, voluntary, EPA program through which organizations eliminate costly municipal solid waste and select industrial wastes, benefiting their bottom line and the environment. WasteWise is a flexible program that allows partners to design their own waste reduction programs tailored to their needs.
