More and more homes and businesses are relying on RAID servers for their durability, reliability, and increased storage capacity. Less complex to manage than a virtual server, yet providing the benefits of redundancy, improved read/write times and greater storage capacity through connected drives, RAID arrays are becoming the technology of choice for big data as well as home movie, music and other media collections.
But when a hard disk drive in a RAID array fails, it puts strain on the other disks and can lead to complete RAID array failure. When this occurs, it’s typically outside the realm of do-it-yourself data recovery to successfully restore the lost data, re-build and re-initialize the array.
That’s why you want to be able to turn to a data recovery service you can trust when you need RAID recovery. Here are some questions to ask:
“Do you have expertise in all forms and levels of RAID recovery?”
RAID arrays differ in the way they store data on hard disks in the array, the controller used, and the number of drives in the array. A data recovery service with extensive RAID knowledge should be familiar with RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 10, and all other RAID levels up to 50. This ensures the data recovery specialists can keep up with changing technology and offer the most effective recovery techniques for your RAID array.
“What does your facility due to ensure the security of my recovered data?”
If you’re a business owner or IT professional who relies on RAID servers for storing your company’s most critical, financially sensitive or otherwise top secret data, you don’t want that data to be exposed after it’s recovered. Ask about security protocols within the building. No one short of the NSA should be able to access your data after it’s recovered until it leaves the facility on a new drive to be returned to you.
“What happens if you can’t recover my data?”
