When people think of solid state storage volumes, they probably only think of things such as thumb-drives or other devices that fit into a USB port on the back of their systems units. But due to miniaturization of computer equipment during the last decade you might not know that the hard-drive in your computer, especially a laptop, is probably a solid state storage device. Solid state devices use less power, produce less heat, and are quieter than typical hard drives, which make them perfect for phones, tablets, and laptops!
Solid state devices are found everywhere. The chip on your credit card as well as the SIM card that allows your smartphone to connect to your service carrier are both solid state devices. Solid state devices hold an inordinate amount of data for taking up such a small area. An area so small, in fact, that many people don’t consider all the places their information is being held! From solid state MP3 devices such as iPods, to smartphones, notebook and tablet hard-drives, to external hard-drives, your information might be contained on a solid state device. There is no telling how long the media itself lasts when it comes to solid state, since it is resistant to environment, electrical current, and other factors which might allow data to be corrupted naturally over time. Solid state devices can withstand a lot of punishment and still retain all the data that was put on them for years to come.
Phiston data crushers aren’t just valuable when it comes to in-rack mounted and portable data destruction devices. They are also effective in complete destruction of solid state devices as well. Without physically destroying the solid state media, information can still be extracted from the devices for years, if not decades to come. In other words, if you want your information entirely secure, the only way to ensure this is through complete piercing and pulverization of storage media through physical means.
