RAID Recovery Milton Keynes – Action To Take When The Worst Happens
RAID recovery Milton Keynes is something that you hope you will never have to think about. As RAID servers specialise in redundancy, we can be guilty of believing that they will go on forever. Unfortunately that is not the case. It is true that if you are using RAID 1 or above, your data will be stored on multiple hard drives (either through mirroring or striping), so there if only one drive fails, you can still access your data. These servers are most commonly used by businesses, as they provide solid redundancy and allow many users to access the same data at the same time. However, there are still a number of ways that these servers can fail and restrict you from accessing your data, and when this happens, the consequences for a business can be very grave indeed. When you need the best Data Recovery Milton Keynes we can help.
One of the most common problems with a RAID setup can simply be wear and tear and overwork. RAID servers are intended to function under a heavy work load, but this cannot go on forever. Wear is increased not only by the amount
of time it is on, but also the number of users accessing it. It is preferable for the servers to be allowed some downtime, but in today’s work environment, when employees are able to access servers from home at any time of the day or night, this is increasingly unrealistic. With the sheer volume of traffic that is repeatedly passing through a server, it is unsurprising that the components are gradually weakened, leading to a sudden and seemingly unprecedented failure. In addition, sometimes we will find that components are faulty, which means that they can take even less of the strain than the fully functioning ones. In this scenario, you will need to contact a professional RAID recovery Milton Keynes firm.
Finding Experienced Specialists
The majority of companies nowadays will have an IT department, but they may not have an IT department that is fully equipped to deal with the complexities of RAID technology. A common fault is a problem with the RAID controller card. This is designed to send the information that the RAID arrays need from the relevant computer. These controller cards contain their own firmware and very delicate parts that can develop faults for any number of reasons, but when this happens the RAID array will experience all kinds of issues, including a failure to back up your data, which your IT department are unlikely to be familiar with. This is a situation that we can help with, along with many others. Not only can our RAID recovery Milton Keynes firm help you replace the faulty controller card, but we can also assist you by retrieving a backup of your data.
