RAID Data Recovery Service Ain’t Cheap

On January 29, 2016 · 0 Comments

raid10I spoke to my supervisor a couple of hours ago because I was wondering exactly why our networks were slowing down to such a crawl. He told me that one of the hard drives in one of our main raid servers had failed during the night. As a result, our raid server was operating in degraded mode. I know that this stuff happens commonly, but I told him that he should probably make sure that he adds a new drive to the array as soon as possible, because of the multiple drive failure occurs, there will be no choice but to call a RAID data recovery service professional. You don’t want to be in this kind of situation because sometimes, depending on the complexity of your raid server, it can cost upwards of $10,000 to properly recover all of the data stored on a failed raid server. I am not sure if he’s going to listen to me, but it better or else he may find himself without a job.

RAID Data Recovery Experiences Change You

I feel like my career has taken a lot of twists and turns over the past 10 years. Most of those twists and turns have been fairly good for me, and I have been fairly compensated pretty much everywhere I go. I have mostly worked as a technology manager for some of the best and brightest companies in Silicon Valley. I actually have to say that I was very surprised during my term at my last job when we had a situation that required raid data recovery. I had only seen a situation like this occur once before, and that was when I was a junior technician, so to be the person in command when everything started to go crazy was absolutely brand-new for me. And I guess what surprised me the most was that in Silicon Valley there were very few real professional hard drive recovery companies. It seems almost insane, but it was a truth that actually kind of scared me.

Get Smart About RAID Servers

We all have our strengths and our flaws, and because machines are mostly man-made, they have their strengths and their flaws as well. I think this is important for pretty much every technician to understand especially if he or she is in control of specialized raid servers. I know that raid servers are based on redundancy and provide a performance edge that single hard drives simply cannot touch. But on the other hand, if you think that a redundant server is somehow failure proof, you are probably barking up the wrong tree. Let’s face it, raid servers are still man-made and actually have more parts than a single hard drive does. This is why RAID data recovery service professionals are so in demand in the IT industry: because these machines fail a lot more often than many people would think. If you do not understand this, it is probably about time that you learned about it.

RAID Recovery Again

I’m starting to feel like a lot of the machines that we’re running here are getting indigestion. We’ve had so many hard drive issues over the past couple of weeks that I am beginning to wonder if somebody is messing with the electronics of some of the servers. I certainly don’t mind getting in touch with a professional RAID recovery company, but I feel like I’ve been talking to them almost every day for the past month. They must think that we’re crazy and that we are taking sledgehammers to our servers. I can tell you for sure that we are definitely not doing this. But, I will admit that even the data recovery engineer that I spoke to said that he had never met a company that was subject to hard drive failure as much as ours. That is something that better change soon, or pretty sure our management will be firing me.
