Inexpensive Data-Destruction SystemLocked
Hello all, newer user here with my first post so please bear with me.
So, I work for a small MSP who moonlights as an IT recycler (or maybe the other way around haha) I was brought on as a network installer but with a company as small as ours I ended up wearing many large hats (think Doug Dimmadome) and wound up being a quasi project manager/installer/systems designer/helpdesk operator/literally everything.
Our margins are about as thin as fishing line currently. With that background info I hope that illustrates just how all-over-the-place my position is and how someone with only trial-by-fire training and decent technical skills fell into this position.
Now for the problem, as part of both the MSP and the It recycling we do data destruction (both physical and dban).
Long story short, our current setup for digital destruction just isn’t cutting it. we have multiple dban stations taking up way too much room in our small office. I want to put together a system with HBA’s and SAS backplanes to allow for the drives to be stored in the tower whilst they are being processed (instead of a literal optiplex with the sidepanel gone and SATA cables hanging out the side). I also want to avoid PCIE bottlenecking.
in summation. Does anyone have any inexpensive hardware suggestions, configurations, etc.
thanks in advance for your time
