When people are looking for ways to protect their data they often implement NAS or RAID to do so for both home and work systems. This is a smart move in many cases and leaves you better protected than not implementing anything at all. But even with such technology, whether hardware or software, issues can happen where a client finds themself faced with the need for data retrieval experts as you find here at the Xytron Group. With more than 17 years of experience, we are leading the field in RAID data recovery services.
What is RAID Data Recovery?
RAID is Redundant Array of Independent Disks or Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks. It is a technology for data storage virtualization. As well as helping with data redundancy it also helps improve your system’s performance. Your data with RAID is distributed across drives in different ways depending on the RAID level you choose. You have RAID 0 and then up, each one offers different performance and reliability and capacity support. Above 0 all give some protection against unrecoverable errors and complete drives.
Examples of when NAS or RAID might fail
How easy the recovery of the data depends on the nature of the RAID protection you have. Software RAID can be easier to perform RAID data recovery on as the data is there physically on the different disks. With RAID hardware you are dealing with a failed disk. But there are always exceptions and sometimes software RAID recovery can also be hard. It is a complicated issue which is why you need people with the right knowledge and skills as we do at Xytron Group. Times when you might find the need to give us a call include;
