Delivering a secure on-site data destruction solution for datacenter technology


Customer profile

As one of the world’s largest online retailers with more than 50,000 people and millions of users this customer operates across 4 continents with offices, distribution centres and IT locations in multiple countries.

Customers challenge

Business intelligence and user data is critical to the success and reputation of the business and protected as a priority throughout the organisation. The customer was faced with having to meet a global security policy recently implemented with strict requirements for the destruction of data.  The customer partnered with RDC to develop a secure solution for the on-site eradication of data contained within server and storage hardware. There was a requirement to manage a large backlog of more than 10,000 hard disks and to implement a solution for future requirements across Europe.

RDC solution

By working closely together, RDC designed a solution that meets the customer’s strict security policy for the destruction of data. Using a combination of destruction methods and equipment we help the customer maintain compliance with an evidenced audit trail for all media destroyed. The service is delivered across Europe in datacenter locations to destroy data for all server and storage hard disks drives and magnetic tape.  The service includes security screened personnel and the use of government approved destruction equipment for on-site use.


We helped our customer with a service that ensures they remain compliant with their global security policy.  Our innovative solution means the customer has flexibility to destroy different types and volumes of media on-site through a secure and compliant process.  Reporting means the customer has an evidenced audit trail with certification of how and when media is destroyed.
