I know that a lot of people understand that raid recovery is always best performed by a data recovery service professional. This makes a lot of sense, if only because of the fact that these people deal with servers on a daily basis. They understand the intricacies of the raid controllers. They get all of the raid utility programs that are necessary to recover data from corrupted raid filesystems. And, I think they really don’t charge that bad of a price considering the sheer amount of understanding when it comes to the machines. But, I have run into so many IT professionals who decide that they would like to be a hero and attempt their own raid data recovery. Shame on them, I always say. Because they are really putting their company data at risk. This should be obvious, and certainly some of these people end up paying for this with their job. So if you are an IT administrator, remember that when you had a major server failure.
Server Gone Down? Raid Data Recovery is There
I am still trying to figure out why it is taking so long for us to get this server online. I have never had this kind of problem before with this particular raid array, and I certainly hope that this isn’t a permanent issue. I’ve seen a lot of technical problems in my career, but I’ve been fortunate that I’ve never run across a situation in which I needed raid data recovery from a professional provider. One of the things that a lot of people do not understand about raid recovery in general is that it is an incredibly complex process, especially when you’re dealing with a true mechanical failure. But, I will say that there are a lot of companies that can perform 24-hour raid data recovery and make sure that you have all of your mission-critical data back as soon as possible. This is a truly fantastic thing for all IT people, because it is always great to know that you have somebody there to support you when a server goes down.
