As with any other type of technology, RAID arrays can and do fail. Granted, storing the same data in many different places, is a great way to protect your information. But don’t be fooled—no hard drive is invincible. Trust the professionals at DriveSavers! Some of our satisfied customers include companies such as Coca Cola, Facebook, Google, NASA, AT&T, and many others.
WE TREAT ALL OF OUR CUSTOMERS LIKE CELEBRITIES AND SOME OF THEM ACTUALLY ARE.
DriveSavers provides unparalleled RAID recovery services and digital forensic services for all RAID devices and configurations. We can recover RAID data!
Critical data is often stored on RAID systems because they are considered to be fault tolerant devices. RAID systems can be configured to keep working even when one drive fails so that disks can be “hot swapped” while the system keeps running. However, even this setup of an array of drives is not infallible as it can only offset the failure of a single drive. The problem is that multiple drive failures frequently occur, against which a RAID system alone is defenseless.
EXPERTS YOU CAN TRUST
Our certified RAID data recovery engineers have the in-depth knowledge and technical expertise that comes from over 35 years of data recovery experience, allowing us to achieve the highest success rate in the industry.
DriveSavers Enterprise Systems Group specializes in recovering data from all operating systems and all types of high-capacity devices including redundant arrays of independent disks (RAID), network-attached storage (NAS), storage area networks (SAN), and multi-disk servers. We routinely rescue lost databases, ERP accounting systems, mail servers, and other mission-critical data for organizations of all sizes.
AFFILIATIONS WITH MANUFACTURERS
Because RAID devices are constructed with unique components and configurations depending on the manufacturer, it is imperative that our data recovery engineers have in-depth knowledge of the various proprietary metadata structures and hardware.
Technical alliances with RAID controller manufacturers have enabled our engineers to develop proprietary techniques, tools and technologies that aid in data recovery from RAID devices based on solid-state drives (SSDs), hard disk drives (HDDs) and more complex hybrid and tiered storage environments. All major RAID manufacturers authorize our data recovery services so working with DriveSavers will not void your original warranty.
STATE OF THE ART CLEANROOM
Extreme damage and data loss can result if any particulate matter enters an HDD. DriveSavers Certified ISO Class 5 Cleanroom is the most advanced data recovery Cleanroom in the industry. This dust-free, static-free, temperature– and humidity-controlled environment maximizes our data recovery successes on all storage devices by protecting the platters and electronic components on the drives from “killer particles” while they are open and vulnerable to damage.
WHY RAIDS FAIL
There are four general categories of failure: hardware failure, human error, software failure, and application failure. DriveSavers provides both RAID array datarecovery and RAID drive data recovery.
