What Does RAID Data Recovery Mean?

What Does RAID Data Recovery Mean? -Raid Data Recovery Kenya

RAID data recovery can be defined as the process of restoring information from a RAID array that is not functioning properly. The process is usually done by using specialized software and hardware to retrieve data from the faulty storage device.

The term RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is commonly used in storage systems, which are designed to provide fault tolerance and high performance.

The basic idea behind RAID systems is to create a redundant configuration of disk drives that work together in parallel, providing continuous access to all data on all disks, even if one or more disks fail.

East African Data Handlers Explains RAID Data Recovery

 Raid Data recovery is different from standard data recovery processes as the RAID storage architecture uses a unique and complex method of storing and extracting data. RAID data recovery can be for any of the RAID levels including RAID 0 ,RAID 1 ,RAID 3RAID 4RAID 5RAID 1ERAID 6RAID 5ERAID 5EERAID ADG, RAID 0+1RAID 10RAID 50, and RAID 51. Recovery is usually required due to technical errors such as:

  • Faulty hard disk

  • Faulty controllers

  • Data overwritten

  • Application/software corruption

  • Reformatting

RAID recovery generally requires reconstruction of all RAID storage arrays to original or last known good settings and configuration. The individual/software must know the RAID configuration at the hardware, software and firmware level to successfully retrieve data. Identifying the correct RAID array is an essential part of the RAID recovery process.

The process of  Raid Data recovery begins with the identification and initializing of the RAID storage array. The proprietary information that is stored on individual disks can then be accessed and read by different software-based or hardware-based methods. Data is then reconstructed through any one of the following methods:

  • Reading back individual disk sectors from a particular disk to reconstruct data from a sector level

  • Reconstructing an entire disk from its master boot record

  • Recovering missing parity blocks

What leads to RAID problems in Data Recovery?

The most common cause of RAID problems is a hardware failure. A hard drive can fail due to age, wear and tear, or manufacturing defects. Another common cause of RAID problems is a power outage that interrupts the data transfer process.

Some other causes of RAID problems are software failures and human error. They can both lead to data loss if not handled properly. That is the reason you will need to do Raid Data recovery using experts like East African Data Handlers.

RAID Data Recovery Explained

Do you know what does RAID Data Recovery Mean?

RAID data recovery  is a process of recovering, restoring and repairing of data from a RAID storage architecture or it’s infrastructure.

What is involved in Raid Data Recovery?

RAID data recovery uses a combination of automated and manual data recovery processes to extract and restore data from one or more RAID drives and storage components.

Note: RAID data recovery can be implemented on both hardware- and software-based RAID.

East African Data Handlers explains RAID Data Recovery

RAID data recovery is different from standard data recovery processes as the RAID storage architecture uses a unique and complex method of storing and extracting data. RAID data recovery can be for any of the RAID levels including RAID 0, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10. Recovery is usually required due to technical errors such as:

  • Faulty controllers

NAS & SAN Data Recovery

SAN environments can incorporate a number of different types of computer hardware, including Network-Attached Storage (NAS) devices and RAID systems where devices communicate using the block-based SCSI protocol over dedicated Fibre Channel or Internet Protocol (IP) network. Because of its many elements, SAN architectures can be quite complex and the more complex the system, the more likely a failure can occur in one component, affecting the entire storage environment.

East African Data Handlers routinely recovers data from:

  • Single or Multiple Disk Failure
  • Failed Software or Operating System Upgrades
  • Mechanical Failure (Clicking, Buzzing)
  • Virus Attack
  • System Crash
  • Accidental Deletion of Data or Reformat of NAS Volume
  • Physical Damage (Fire, Water, Smoke, Etc.)
  • Power Surge Causing Physical or Logical Corruption
  • Data Could Not Be Viewed Due To Security System Failure

The #1 cause of unrecoverable data is due to individuals or technicians attempting data recovery on their own.

NAS is an alternative to a specialized storage area network (SAN). NAS devices are often connected to a shared general purpose local area network, reducing cost overhead, while also reducing access speed. The protocol used with NAS is a file based protocol such as Network File System (NFS) or Microsoft’s Common Internet File System (CIFS).

Most network storage systems contain more than one hard disk drive, often in a RAID configuration and are a computer by itself with its own operating system. Having a hard drive fail or even one the computer components could make it impossible for your IT department to recover the data due to the nonstandard operating system.

Unexpected failure may cause data inaccessibility or even data loss. Often this occurs between data backups or on data that has no backup at all. Utilizing proprietary data recovery technology, our data recovery specialists will recover the data you need in a timely, secure and cost effective manner. We have established a level of expertise in RAID, SAN, and NAS recovery that is unparalleled by even the manufacturers of the systems that we recover data from.

Our combination of custom software and extensive experience means we do not need your hardware or your controller to perform data recovery on your RAID, SAN or NAS storage system. We only need the drives from the sub-system. You can keep the trays, rails, cables and miscellaneous hardware. This allows you to replace the drives and start the rebuild process while we recover the data from the originals. You no longer have to wait to get your equipment back.

East African Data Handlers  offers multiple data recovery service options across Kenya for recovering lost or inaccessible data from NAS & SAN Storage devices. ie Apple, Buffalo, Dell, NetGear, Lacie, Iomega, G-Drive, HP and more.

SSD Data Recovery

Solid state drives (SSDs) offer a bevy of benefits over traditional hard disk drives (HDDs). The primary advantage of SSDs is that they use nonvolatile memory chips that improve performance and loading speed. They use less energy and are more compact, making them perfect for laptops and mobile devices that require more lightweight storage options. What’s more, SSDs differ from HDDs in that they do not have an actuator arm that writes data onto a spinning disk. This absence of moving mechanical parts decreases the likelihood of damaging the drive or disrupting data reading and writing when using storage devices in transit.

That being said, many SSD users assume their SSDs are more reliable than HDDs because their lack of moving parts should theoretically mean less opportunity on the whole for something to go wrong. Unfortunately, this is incorrect.

While SSDs have rightly earned their reputation for high-speed performance, they are not infallible. In fact, generally speaking, the longevity of an SSD seems to be pretty on par with that of an HDD. In other words, despite their many advantages, SSDs are still susceptible to memory deterioration and physical faults. Flash memory wears out over time, while capacitors, power supply, and controller chips all make SSDs prone to electrical failures.

For this reason, it’s crucial for MSPs to understand that SSDs can fail and prepare themselves with adequate precautionary measures to help customers avoid data loss. The bottom line is that SSD death can be unpredictable and unavoidable in some cases, which is why it’s best to learn about preemptive measures and SSD data recovery well in advance of a potential failure.

Through our Recovery products and services, East African Data Handlers can help clients understand and manage the challenges associated with Solid State Drive Data Recovery. ie Kingston, Samsung, WD Black & Black SSD etc.

Ransomware Attack Data Recovery

You’re working on your computer and you notice that it seems slower. Or perhaps you can’t access document or media files that were previously available.

You might be getting error messages from Windows telling you that a file is of an “Unknown file type” or “Windows can’t open this file.”

If you’re on a Mac, you might see the message “No associated application,” or “There is no application set to open the document.”

Another possibility is that you’re completely locked out of your system. If you’re in an office, you might be looking around and seeing that other people are experiencing the same problem. Some are already locked out, and others are just now wondering what’s going on, just as you are.

Then you see a message confirming your fears.

You’ve been infected with ransomware.

Cyber Security

What is Cyber Security?

Cyber security is the practice of defending computers, servers, mobile devices, electronic systems, networks, and data from malicious attacks. It’s also known as information technology security or electronic information security. The term applies in a variety of contexts, from business to mobile computing, and can be divided into a few common categories.

  • Network security is the practice of securing a computer network from intruders, whether targeted attackers or opportunistic malware.
  • Application security focuses on keeping software and devices free of threats. A compromised application could provide access to the data its designed to protect. Successful security begins in the design stage, well before a program or device is deployed.
  • Information security protects the integrity and privacy of data, both in storage and in transit.
  • Operational security includes the processes and decisions for handling and protecting data assets. The permissions users have when accessing a network and the procedures that determine how and where data may be stored or shared all fall under this umbrella.
  • Disaster recovery and business continuity define how an organization responds to a cyber-security incident or any other event that causes the loss of operations or data. Disaster recovery policies dictate how the organization restores its operations and information to return to the same operating capacity as before the event. Business continuity is the plan the organization falls back on while trying to operate without certain resources.
  • End-user education addresses the most unpredictable cyber-security factor: people. Anyone can accidentally introduce a virus to an otherwise secure system by failing to follow good security practices. Teaching users to delete suspicious email attachments, not plug in unidentified USB drives, and various other important lessons is vital for the security of any organization.

Cyber attacks have become common, that’s why we provide managed security services that help companies detect & respond to threats and breaches. Talk to our cyber security experts today to defend your systems & data from attacks.

Cloud and Data Backup

What is cloud backup and how does it work?

Cloud backup, also known as online backup or remote backup, is a strategy for sending a copy of a physical or virtual file or database to a secondary, off-site location for preservation in case of equipment failure or catastrophe. The secondary server and storage systems are usually hosted by a third-party service provider, who charges the backup customer a fee based on storage space or capacity used, data transmission bandwidth, number of users, number of servers or number of times data is accessed.

Implementing cloud data backup can help bolster an organization’s data protection strategy without increasing the workload of information technology (IT) staff. The labor-saving benefit may be significant and enough of a consideration to offset some of the additional costs associated with cloud backup, such as data transmission charges.

We provide a cloud based backup and recovery solution in Kenya that provides SMEs, Private Companies, Government Institution and even Individuals with offsite backup solution.

Raid Data Recovery in Kenya

Little do many of us know, RAID technology plays a huge part in our technological lives, and data storage and everything that is built upon it wouldn’t be possible without it. RAID stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks, and it is represents a major portion of data storage schemes that divide and replicate data among many drives. The dividing and replicating of data is known as striping. The multiple drives then work together as a single unit, and deliver required data as effectively as possible, while storing the data as securely as possible. Let’s back things up a bit and define a few important terms to help us categorize different levels of RAID technology.
