RAID Recovery UK – Protecting Your Business

RAID recovery UK 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 UK or the best Data Recovery London 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. 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 RAID recovery UK specialists on hand.

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.
