Hard Drive Retention

Hard Drive Retention (HDR) has been designed for clients that want to retain failed hard drives that contain highly sensitive data, rather than returning them to IBM as used parts or purchasing the failed drives at their retail price.

The hard drive retention option is available for IBM System i, System p, System x and System z platforms, as well as IBM storage products.

Unlike competitive services, HDR is a reasonably priced enhancement to product warranty and maintenance service agreements and is offered as an annuity contract available during warranty or post-warranty periods on IBM server and storage products.

  • Keeps highly sensitive data in-house, supporting compliance, security and privacy laws
  • Integrates data security compliance into system support processes
  • Simplifies asset tracking, depreciation, and budget planning by embedding hard drive retention into the support expense
