Flexible RAID service options
A failed RAID array may not be able to be shipped to us for recovery. Whether it is due to corporate security protocols or the sheer size of the array, we offer our customers multiple service options to meet their needs.
Remote Data Recovery
When the hardware is still functioning properly, data recovery can be performed through a secure internet connection. This is a fast and cost-effective method to recover data from a RAID which cannot be moved.
Cleanroom services are needed for complex and extreme situations when the hardware is not functioning properly or is damaged (e.g., unusual noises, grinding, blank screen, etc.). Our cleanroom environments reduce the chance of further data loss when media is uncased.
Ask your data recovery specialist which option would be best for you.
Common causes of RAID data loss
Each RAID data recovery is unique, but there are a few common causes for data loss.
Whether on accident or completed with malicious intent, data loss from reformatting, reinstalling or volume overwrite can be conquered by expert data recovery engineers.
RAID systems can be affected by loss of power, power cycling and power surges causing loss of data. RAIDs running in a degraded state are especially vulnerable, as power issues can cause out-of-sync drives to be reincorporated into the array.
Mechanical issues and failed rebuilds
RAID systems are built to withstand individual drive failure, but once a RAID is running in a degraded state, the workload of the remaining drives increases and so does the risk of additional drive failures. This can lead to failure of the RAID.
Fire, water, dirt and other contaminants from natural disasters can destroy a RAID floor in an instant. Rebuilding file systems from a RAID affected by a natural disaster takes specialized facilities, knowledge and tools to decontaminate the drives and logically rebuild the data.
The different types of RAID
RAID configuration, including the number of disks used, determines the type. As a reminder, the RAID that stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks or Redundant Independent Disk Array is a storage solution that distributes data across multiple small disks that together form a single system. In addition to being less expensive, this device has a high level of performance and data security as RAID tolerates breakdowns better.RAID configurations
Why choose Ontrack?
We have 30 years’ experience successfully performing highly technical RAID recoveries. We also have specialised facilities and the storage capacity to handle large amounts of data.
We have the knowledge and resources for successful RAID data recovery
Due to the highly technical nature of RAID recoveries, recovery providers not only need an inordinate amount of experience with RAID, they also need to have the storage capacity to handle a large amount of data. This is an area which sets Ontrack apart from the rest of the providers in the market. Our engineers combined have over 1,400 years of data recovery experience and our facilities are able to adapt easily to accommodate large amounts of data.
