RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is a storage technology that combines multiple hard drives into one logical unit to improve performance, reliability, and capacity. However, RAID systems are prone to failure due to various reasons such as hardware failure, software corruption, power surges, natural disasters, etc. When a RAID system fails, it can lead to significant data loss and downtime. That’s where DTI Data Recovery comes in.
Our RAID data recovery process involves the following steps:
- Evaluation: The first step is to evaluate the failed RAID system to determine the cause of failure and the extent of damage.
- Repair: Once the evaluation is complete, the next step is to repair the damaged components of the RAID system.
- Imaging: After repairing the damaged components, DTI Data Recovery creates an image of the RAID system’s hard drives.
- Recovery: The final step is to recover the lost data from the image created in step 3.
Dell Power Edge RAID 5 severs. Ran in production for 5 years without shutdown. After a reboot event each array show failed drives.
A rebuild was attempted – shortly after multiple drives failed. All data was recovered.
RAID parity is a technique used by some RAID configurations to provide redundancy and fault tolerance. In simple terms, parity is an extra bit of information that is calculated from the other bits of data stored on the disks. This parity information can be used to reconstruct lost or corrupted data in case of a disk failure.
There are several different types of RAID configurations available from various manufacturers such as Dell EMC, HP Enterprise, IBM, NetApp, etc. Here are some common types of RAID configurations:
- RAID 0: This configuration stripes data across multiple disks for improved performance but does not provide redundancy.
- RAID 1: This configuration mirrors data across two disks for redundancy but does not improve performance.
- RAID 5: This configuration stripes data across multiple disks with parity information for redundancy and improved performance. More information about RAID 5 Xor can be found here
- RAID 6: This configuration stripes data across multiple disks with dual parity information for even greater redundancy than RAID 5. .
NAS (Network Attached Storage) devices are file-level storage devices that provide shared access to files over a network. In some cases, NAS cane be configure with iSCSI to provide a SAN like environment without the extra cables. Some common NAS manufacturers include Synology, QNAP, Western Digital, Seagate, Ready NAS, Apple etc.
