Delete file securely with Ubuntu Server

Recently decided to sell one of my rack servers and replace it with a smaller and house friendly HP Microserver.

To delete the network share data I used the following command:

shred --remove --iterations=7 filename.xyz

This command will overwrite the original file with garbage data then with the remove parameter it will also delete it.
