SAN Data Recovery Services from an Industry Leader

When your storage needs to tend toward high speed and large size, Storage Area Networks are the logical choice versus Network Area Storage, or NAS, configurations. The key difference between these two is that the storage model for NAS is file based, whereas SAN utilizes a block based model.

SAN RAID Data Recovery

Secure Data Recovery Services can repair your hardware to a functional state, while restoring your SAN RAID's data.

Versus a NAS solution, SAN offers higher data availability, efficient and flexible hardware deployment, backup efficiency and storage virtualization. Configuring a SAN with RAID arrays further improves reliability. However, neither SAN nor NAS has a zero probability of data loss.

Sources of SAN Failure

Though SAN systems provide many operating and usability advantages, they are susceptible to numerous failure causes:

  • Operator or user errors – Misconfiguration by administrators or accidental file deletion by users
  • Software errors – Server applications or server OS malfunctions that create data inconsistencies
  • Hardware errors – Faults in hard drive mechanisms or drive controllers that exceed the ability of RAID system redundancy

Any of these errors or malfunctions may lead to individual file or file system logical structure corruption that prevent data acquisition by users or applications.

Steps to Take if Your SAN Goes Down

When a failure occurs, your company is looking at significant productivity loss if proper steps are not taken immediately. Secure Data Recovery Services’ highly experienced data recovery specialists are on call 24 hours every day of the year to respond to your emergency and rectify the situation in a timely manner.

In order to avoid further data loss and improve your odds for full recovery, there are steps you must take:

  • If a RAID recovery was attempted and failed, do not attempt an array rebuild again
  • Do not run any other recovery software
  • Power down the SAN completely to preserve file system state
  • Set up an immediate evaluation of your SAN media with Secure Data Recovery Services
