When we set out to design Surface Pro 7+, we wanted to make it easy for enterprise customers to retain data and repair units We listened to customer feedback about the critical importance of retaining confidential data and reducing the downtime incurred by a servicing issue. That’s why we’re pleased to announce that beginning today, commercial customers in the U.S. will be able to purchase Microsoft Surface Removal SSDs (rSSDs), enabling their IT technicians to service devices onsite.
Removal SSD commercial spares are primarily designed to address data retention. Enterprise IT departments are often required to retain data for liability reasons. When a company owned PC asset is transitioned between employees or when a company owned PC is sent in for repair or retired, sensitive data can be archived or destroyed. Companies retain full control over their data.
SSD kits consist of a single certified refurbished SSD —plus SSD screw. All volume sizes are available: 128GB, 256GB ,512GB or 1TB. At this time, the kits cover Surface Pro 7+ only and will not work for Surface Pro X or Surface Laptop Go. After the initial US rollout, we plan to gradually roll out the kits to all Surface regions.
To order, reach out to your regional reseller or Surface specialist (initially in the U.S. only) to order via regular commercial channels. We hope this makes it easier for commercial customers to retain their data on Surface Pro 7+ devices.
