RAID Recovery Newcastle – Action To Take When The Worst Happens
RAID recovery Newcastle is something that you hope you will never have to think about. As RAID servers specialise in redundancy, we can be guilty of believing that they will go on forever. Unfortunately that is not the case. It is true that if you are using RAID 1 or above, your data will be stored on multiple hard drives (either through mirroring or striping), so there if only one drive fails, you can still access your data. These servers are most commonly used by businesses, as they provide solid redundancy and allow many users to access the same data at the same time. However, there are still a number of ways that these servers can fail and restrict you from accessing your data, and when this happens, the consequences for a business can be very grave indeed. When you need the best Data Recovery Newcastle 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 Newcastle firm.
Finding Experienced Specialists
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 Newcastle 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.
