Storage Area Network (SAN) Data Recovery services
A storage area network (SAN) is a dedicated network that provides access to consolidated, block level data storage. SANs are primarily used to make storage devices, such as disk arrays, tape libraries, and optical jukeboxes, accessible to servers so that the devices appear like locally attached devices to the operating system. A SAN typically has its own network of storage devices that are generally not accessible through the local area network by other devices. A SAN environment can incorporate a number of different types of computer hardware, including Network-Attached Storage (NAS) devices and RAID systems. Because of its many elements, SAN architectures can be quite complex and the more complex the system, the more likely a failure can occur in one component, affecting the entire storage environment.
SAN devices can fail? There are some causes
- Operating system upgrades
- Virus infection, configuration problems
- Deletion or re-intialization
- Hardware or Software malfunction
- Hard drives fail or go offline or multiple drives failed
- Physical damage to media
- Natural disasters: Fires, floods, earthquakes
UI Data Recovery routinely recovers lost data, databases, mail/exchange servers and other mission-critical data from failed SAN. We don't just recover the data; we actually recover and restore the entire server, potentially saving you days in data transfer and system re-configuration required with other recovery methods.
We know what data loss can cause – in both domestic and business use – and it's important to us that your data is recovered as quickly and efficiently as possible. If your NAS has stopped functioning, is giving you errors, or just won't' initialize, call us today for a free evaluation
