Instant Secure Erase - Disaster wipe disk?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

First, ISE that HGST has, does more hard drives vendor have this? WD and thier Red drives? Seagate and their Ironwolf drives?

Can it be used to secure delete the drives in an event of you need to wipe 'em fast?! Like with a remote command "kill it"..?

HGST calls it ISE and it is their version of the standard Sanitize (T10/T13) SATA command.  So you would have to check if drives support those -- I do not believe that many consumer level drives include that feature at this time.  I primarily use HGST drives for other reasons -- like their quality, but that is an available attribute on most if not all enterprise models
