RAID Recovery Leeds – Protecting Your Business
RAID recovery Leeds 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 the best Data Recovery Leeds 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 Leeds firm.
The Benefits of Specialist Data Recovery
You may have an IT department that, although they are highly experienced, are not specialists in RAID technology. This is why it is advisable, when you find yourself facing this sort of situation, to contact an experienced RAID recovery Leeds firm. We are aware of all the commonly experienced RAID server issues, as well as some not so common problems. RAID drives run on the same electronic circuitry and firmware as regular drives in single user PCs, and unfortunately it is not uncommon for them to collapse through overwork or general wear and tear through no fault of the administrators and users. There is often no warning, so you will suddenly find that one or more disks are unreadable with no indication as to why. Sometimes the problem will only be with a single sector, yet if that sector is a crucial one it can bring the entire system down.
