Hard drive failure can cause headaches that go beyond getting it replaced. Many companies are legally required to protect electronic data. And just because you can’t access this data doesn’t mean someone else can’t.
IBM Hardware Maintenance Services – warranty and maintenance option – System x ServicePac for hard drive retention can help you retain your hard drive—and all its vital data—with one comprehensive support contract.
When a hard drive is replaced, the defective hard drive typically becomes the property of the manufacturer. The manufacturer may then refurbish the hard drive and re-sell it as used equipment. But in the process, your data can become exposed—and that can put you at risk for legal and regulatory penalties your business can’t afford.
Fortunately, IBM Hardware Maintenance Services – warranty and maintenance option – System x ServicePac for hard drive retention option can help to reduce those risks. This one-time charge support contract can allow you to keep your hard drive after it’s replaced—so you can forever maintain ownership of your sensitive data and help ease compliance with privacy requirements. It can also help you simplify hard drive asset tracking, depreciation and budget planning. And with one complete support contract, there’s no need to manage separate agreements, helping to streamline IBM systems¹ support.
