Raid Array configuration RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) is the combining of two or more hard drive working in unison to gain greater levels of performance, redundant reliability, and or to create a larger hard drive volume sizes. In the past this type of configuration was generally used only by large companies. Today, many South Charleston small business and home users are finding an ever increasing need for servers and mass external storage devices to store there ever expanding data needs. When multiple raid configured hard drive arrays fail, special software and hardware is needed to successfully recover your data.

Raid arrays are configured in raid levels based on the performance and redundancy that is required for the application. Raid levels vary from hardware arrays and software arrays Raid Levels consist of Standard, Non Standard Raid levels.

What to do if your Raid Array is failing or Failed:

Raid array failure for most South Charleston, South Carolina Corporate users is generally a minor several hour inconvenience as they are more likely to have a disaster plan in place to deal with raid array failures. Large corporations generally have the resources to have multiple servers so that ALL their data is not concentrated on one server. They will usually have multiple up to data backups and possibly a backup server ready to go on line.

Having a raid array failure or a single drive failure is a disaster for most South Charleston home users and small to medium size business users. Panic sets in as you see your entire digital life gone or your entire business shut down. What you do next can determine if this disaster turns into a Major Disaster or a Catastrophic Disaster.

Remove the server array from the network and Shut the system down. This includes an active array with just a single drive failure. Do not attempt to rebuild the array unless you have a good backup copy of all your data including the most recent files. Remove all of the drives from the array. Build a new array with new drives and start rebuilding your array from your data backup, even if the backup is old and out of date. If your raid array needs to be recovered you will already have the server and your company up and running. Once the recovered data is back you will simply be updating the array. Even if you have a complete and sound backup of the array, rebuilding using the remaining good drives may result in corrupted data, lost files or failure of other drives in the array. With most businesses, getting the company back up and running and recovering all the data is most important. Buy following the previous steps you have the server up an running in the quickest amount of time and your have the failed array secured so no other damage or data loss can occur.

I know this goes against what most older IT administrations and Techs were taught. We have a combine 57 years experience building, recovery, maintaining and implementing raid arrays on servers, NAS devices, SAN Servers and DAS Servers. This is not how we were taught when it came to recovering a failed raid. Back when, we were limited to the software and hardware that was available to use for bad drives, like CheckDisk, Fsck, Spinrite, all of which are destructive programs. Destructive because they re write data on the hard drive attempting to correct errors in the MTF or Journaling systems or moving data from a bad sector to a good sector sector. With an active failed raid array, with no backup, copying the data or cherry picking the data was the only choice then attempt to add a new drive for the failing array and attempt to rebuild the array for several hours or days. How many arrays have you spent hours on a rebuild, only to have another drive go and the array fail?

Why Not copy the active data from a failing raid array or replace a failed drive and rebuild? The main reason is that when the array was first constructed at the factory or by an IT department, all the drives used in the array were the same make and model drive. All the drives were most likely purchased at the same time from the same location and most probably were all manufactured at the same time and are from the same lot. If one drive from the same lot fails, there is a very high probability that other drives will shortly fail with the same problem. At this point why the drive failed is not of concern. Your only concern at the moment is to protect the integrity of the data on the drives. If you start a rebuild and another drive fails you may corrupt or loose data on the array. The only safe coarse of action is to remove all the drives from the array and have each forensically imaged with forensic hardware and software designed for data recovery and having the ability to deal with bad sectors.

Bad sector failure is the second major concern when attempting to rebuild a failing array. Greater density has been gain on the hard drives by the compression of tracks and sectors to produce greater capacity on the same size platers of 20 years ago. Failing sectors are now more critical then in years past, especially when dealing with multiple drives in a raid array.

Recovering and reconstructing data from a failed raid array:

As with our individual hard drive data recovery, we follow a prescribe methodology for raid array recoveries from Raid Servers, San Servers, NAS Servers, SAN and DAS Servers, Internal and external raid arrays.

1. All mountable drives from the array are Forensically Imaged for data recovery to one of our Enterprise SATA hard drives Our Advanced Forensic Imaging devices have two advantages over other imaging software and hardware. Our Imaging hardware have the fastest data transfer rates available. Our Forensic hardware and software is designed for data recovery and has the ability of reading multiple bad sectors and recovering those sectors to the recovery drive. This leads to a greater data recovery success rate when dealing with bad sector issues .

2. All non mountable drives are examined to determine the best method of rendering the drive mountable for imaging. Logical repairs are handled with our hard drive manufacture specific hard ware and software. All internal examinations or internal repair of the hard drive is conducted in our Class 100 Clean Room Environment. Once the drive is mountable it is forensically imaged to one of our enterprise SATA hard drives,

3. The Imaged drives are than mounted on one of our Raid Recovery workstations, where our engineers will determine the parameters of the raid array, reconstruct and DE-strip the array, at which time the data is recovered to another drive. The recovered data is then copied over to the clients drive for return.

Although we do not promote the use of large volume raid arrays, we will recovery any raid array, no matter the size the drives nor the number of drives used in the array. If you are contemplating constructing a large volume array call and talk to one of our engineers to learn the inherent problems and failure rates of large volume raid arrays. Our goal is the complete recovery your data without causing more loss or corruption to the failed drives. We therefore DO NOT perform data recovery over the Internet nor over a Network. We WILL NOT perform data recovery from a source drive, active Server, Workstation or NAS Device. All of these methods present a high risk of data loss or data corruption.

Advanced Raid Server Data recovery for any Enterprise servers including the following model: Macintosh X Server, HP ProLiant, HP Integrity Superdome, HP AlphaServer DS25, HP AlphaServer DS15A, Sun Netra, Sun SPARC Enterprise, IBM x86 enterprise servers, Dell™ PowerEdge™ T110, Xenos Enterprise Server, Raid Inc Xanadu™, Silicon Mechanics Storform nServ, Silicon Mechanics Rackform iServ, Intel® Storage Server.
