RAID DATA RECOVERY FROM FAILED SERVER ARRAYS, SAN AND NAS
Servers for file storage, running applications, virtual environments are the backbone of all corporations with the IT infrastructures. Servers have vulnerabilities like increased complexibility of the server’s operating system, complex muiti-topology arrays and enterprise environments that can result from risk situations. Servers face a common issue that includes:
- RAID drives accidental configuration
- RAID controller failure
- Accidental replacement of media components
- Lost server registry configuration
- Damaged/deleted MBRS
- Lost configuration from the server’s registry
RAID data recovery can be done on the failed server or window or on other UNIX variant. Unsuccessful recovery normally occurs when the individuals or IT technicians tries to recover the data that is lost from the server’s arrays, SAN, or NAS.Most of the network storage systems have one or more hard drives discs. The RAID configuration is also typical when the recovery of the lost data is done. Having a failure of the hard drive or in one of the computer component can be impossible for the IT department to recover the data due to the non-standardized operating system.
When the RAID has crushed, it normally sends strange error messages. Many people task in trouble shooting the server but in vain. This is the reason why you need experts when the server array experiences a problem. The RAID systems are implemented with data redundancy reasons. This makes it to have less than 100% crush proof on the system. This is the reason why they get attached to a virus easily on all the copies. Rendering it useless
The experts who have specialized on the recovery of data that has been lost from the server arrays, SAN and NAS use engineered techniques in recovering large quantities of data. RAID arrays, AS and SAN are critical devices that contain the critical information of the business. The recovery services allow the business to be back in running after the loss of data. The RAID data recovery can be done at different levels i.e.
- RAID0-This stripes the discs together with no redundancy for a maximum storage space
- RAID 1-At this level, it mirrors data across the two discs for an ultimate redundancy
- RAID5 & 6-These increases the capacity when using the parity data to provide fault tolerance
In cases of a RAID server failure, you need to shut down the server and turn off the system. Do not try to reboot as it may cause damage to the array.SAN environments incorporate different computer hardware where the devices communicate using the block based SCSI protocol. This makes the SAN architecture more complex.
