Raid Server Data Recovery

Raid Server Data Recovery

A RAID array failure can have serious ramifications for your business. This section explores some of the most common data loss scenarios associated with RAID servers and provides an overview of RAID data recovery procedures for various configuration levels.

Recovering Deleted Data from a RAID 5 System

Recovering Deleted Data from a RAID 5 System

RAID 5 is one of the most common RAID configurations due to its high access speeds and reliable redundancy. However, RAID 5 redundancy does not protect against accidental deletion or other sources of logical file damage. If you unintentionally delete files or partitions from your RAID device, take the following steps to improve your chances of a successful recovery.

Why a RAID 5 Does Not Provide Perfect Data Protection

Most businesses use some type of RAID as a primary form of data protection. By definition, a RAID provides redundancy, meaning that no file exists in a single physical location; many types of RAID servers can sustain one, two or three hard drive failures without losing data. Unlike earlier versions of RAID, RAID 5 uses parity and block-level striping to write information.

How RAID Hardware Damage Can Cause Database Corruption and File Damage

One of the most common data loss scenarios on large RAID systems is database corruption. Corrupt databases are either completely unreadable or practically unusable, and businesses often face serious downtime and heavy losses when corruption occurs. Although many factors can cause database corruption on modern systems, hardware damage is a common and potentially serious contributor.

Why RAID 10 and 50 Do Not Provide Perfect Protection from Data Loss

Choosing a RAID level can be difficult, particularly for systems with high fault tolerance needs. Many businesses choose nested RAID levels in order to prevent potential data loss and downtime, but while many nested RAID options can improve system reliability, no RAID option provides perfect protection against data loss.

RAID Server Configurations and How They Affect Redundancy

Many businesses use RAID (Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks) technology as a safe, efficient means of data storage. Below are some of the most common types of RAID server configurations and how their designs affect data loss and recovery. For the best possible protection, you should regularly back up important RAID data in at least two offsite locations and immediately contact a RAID data recovery provider at the first signs of data loss.
