ARM an acronym for Advanced RISC Machines is a family of reduced instruction set computing (RISC) architectures for computer processors, configured for various environments. Arm Ltd. develops the architecture and licenses it to other companies. These companies design their own products that implement one of those architectures that incorporate different components for consumer electronics such as smartphones, tablets, multimedia players, mobile devices, memories, storage devices including SSDs and NVMe devices .

In modern era of computing, speed through which information needs to be processed has become critical. Processor technology has grown exponentially bringing significant performance enhancements. Consequently, we are observing rise of faster disk technology and SSD drives which work significantly different and efficiently when comes to speed than traditional hard disks. This article will delve into understanding different options for SSDs and understanding those factors will help to choose better way to manage the life cycle of the data on those drives.

The recommended deletion process is a three-step procedure: sanitization, verification and documentation. We detailed the sanitization method in our previous blog article on data sanitization, and in this article, we will elaborate on verification and documentation.
Data volume and the number of data storage devices have grown exponentially. This has led to the significant increase in the time required for disk sanitization, both in terms of the number of devices and data storage capacities.
Data sanitization is an important function while performing data cleansing, from data creation to data destruction, also called the life cycle of data. Once data has reached the end of its life, obsolete or redundant, it is important to destroy, clean, or sanitize that data securely. According to Gartner, a global research and advisory company providing information and tools for leaders in IT, there are three methods to achieve data sanitization: physical destruction, cryptographic erasure, or data erasure. Only these three methods will ensure complete data erasure.
