Raid Recovery Buckinghamshire – Protecting Your Business
RAID recovery Buckinghamshire is usually an issue that affects businesses, although there are a few individuals that have RAID servers for personal use. This is because they are designed to provide redundancy and allow multiple users to access the same data at the same time. The most common options are RAID 1 and RAID 5, especially if you are concerned with redundancy. Both these systems protect against data loss, RAID 1 by storing identical copies of the data on multiple drives (mirroring), RAID 5 by storing different parts of each file on different drives (striped). This means that if one disk fails, the data can still be accessed. But what if two disks fail? There is no doubt that this is a secure system; however, it is still beset by problems that can mean that you and your employees can no longer access data. When you need Data Recovery Buckinghamshire or the best Data Recovery Milton Keynes we can help.
RAID systems have a number of hard drives, which have their benefits. However, each hard drive can suffer the same individual problems as single hard disks. This means that there is more scope for errors and drive failure, resulting in a
need for RAID recovery Buckinghamshire. In addition, it is entirely possible for one drive to fail and cause knock-on failures in another drive, particularly if too great a load has suddenly fallen on the second drive. Furthermore, although RAID drives are designed to cope with a large work load, if a drive contains a faulty component too heavy a load can cause it to suddenly fail. If a component collapses, then the data on that drive may not be readable even to the other drives that are intended to mirror that data. As such, although RAID provides excellent redundancy it is not inconceivable that you will experience problems so it would be wise to have a firm of recovery specialists on hand.
Choosing A Professional Service
Most companies that utilise RAID will have an IT department that are able to rebuild the system when necessary. This will usually happen when you experience drive failure and need to replace the existing faulty drives with new ones. If your RAID array does not support ‘hot swapping’ then the server will need to be powered down one drive at a time and then built. It is a delicate and complex process and not always successful, through no fault of the administrators working on it. Sometimes the process will fail after a few percent, although sometimes it will appear to be successful only for the RAID server to refuse to boot up. However, all is not lost.
