    IBM® FlashCore Modules (FCMs) are storage devices that are available in 4.8 TB, 9.6 TB, and 19.2 TB capacities. They are a 2.5-inch drive form factor device and use second-generation 3D triple-level cell (TLC) flash memory on which to store data.

    This paper describes the cryptographic erasure of data that is stored on these devices when used in an IBM FlashSystem® 9100 (9846-AF7, 9846-AF8, 9848-AF7, 9848-AF8, 9848-UF7, and 9848-UF8), or IBM Storwize® V5100 (2077-424, 2077-A4F, 2078-424, and 2078-A4F).
