Choosing a RAID 6 Data Recovery and Repair Provider
RAID 6 servers provide excellent fault protection by striping data with a double parity block. When properly maintained, a RAID 6 is a consistent, efficient option for
large-scale data storage, but RAID redundancy does not replace the need for an effective backup strategy. RAID 6 system failure can have serious consequences for any
business, and in some cases, data reconstruction is not an option.

RAID 6 Overview and Common Applications
RAID 6 is fundamentally similar to RAID 5, as both RAID levels stripe data across member hard drives with a distributed parity block. The parity block allows the RAID to
reconstruct data after a single hard drive failure. RAID 6 adds a second parity stripe, which provides improved redundancy for the system. A RAID 6 can sustain two hard
drive failures without losing data.
Because RAID 6 systems need to perform twice the parity calculations, write speeds are often limited as compared to RAID 5. However, this is not necessarily the case;
specialized RAID controllers with optimized firmware can reduce parity calculation times.
Many businesses prefer RAID 6 to RAID 5 for web servers, storage servers, email servers and other frequently accessed systems. RAID 6 is more expensive than RAID 6, but setup
and administration costs have dropped significantly in recent years.
Data Loss Symptoms and Steps to Take After RAID Failure
Because RAID 6 providers protection from two hard drive failures, data loss is extremely rare. However, controller card failures and power surges can prevent a RAID 6 from
functioning properly. A system can also fail during a rebuild, and users sometimes contribute to data loss issues by attempting a second rebuild that overwrites data on the
Common data loss scenarios include:
- Multiple Hard Drive Failures Past Point of Redundancy
- Errors During Rebuild
- Damaged RAID Controller Card
- Accidental Overwrites, Formatting or Partitioning
- Reinitialization Resulting in Overwrite
- File Corruption
- Virus Damage
- Fire, Smoke or Water Damage
If your RAID 6 fails, make a note of any error messages and shut down the array as quickly as possible. Do not attempt to recover your own data or replace any failed system
components. Clearly label each drive in the array and contact Secure Data Recovery Services to discuss disaster recovery options.
