Raid Arrays

We recover from RAID arrays from all manufacturers of servers, NAS and SAN running any file system including Windows Server, Linux, MAC, Novell.

RAID configurations introduced the use of multiple disks to enhance performance. There are different ways in which RAID are set up and as a result of this have different attributes. RAID 1 and 0 are amongst the most commonly used. RAID1 systems keep an exact t copy of data on another disk, they can read a file much faster since they read different parts of the file from each disk. RAID 0 arrays improve read and write performance by splitting files into pieces and storing the separate pieces on multiple disks. The latter is built for performance and capacity only.

Contingency, system availability, security and data protection are good reasons to have a RAID configuration installed. RAID configuration can feature redundant hard disk drive storage capacity. This can be viewed as having a data recovery system in place ensuring that data is secure with high uptime. This feature allows the system to rebuild itself and remain in service under disk storage failure conditions. High availability in RAID systems comes from the RAID controller’s ability to switch to a redundant copy of data in the event of a single hard disk drive failure. The beauty of this future is users total ignorance as degraded performance whilst the reconfiguration process is in progress is the only set back.
