RAID (redundant array of independent (or inexpensive) disks) is a method of organizing, storing and copying computer data on to two or more hard drives. Data is categorized by importance and function and then stored accordingly, allowing your computer to perform much more efficiently as the hard drive is less cluttered with data. By arranging data in this way, the efficiency of the computer’s hard drive is optimized and its performance is greatly enhanced. While RAID takes up a certain amount of storage it is incredibly valuable to business or corporate servers that are relied on by multiple computers at once. RAID is not meant to be used as a sole back-up system for your data, it is primarily meant to increase your computer’s performance which is why it’s popular for servers that connect with multiple computers. RAID is available in several different levels and RAID levels 5, 6 and 10 are considered the most suitable options for business or corporate servers.
RAID 10 combines the principles of RAID 1, which uses mirroring, and RAID 0 as a way of increasing computer speed and productivity. This RAID system is the best option for enterprises that use processor-heavy applications like large databases and messaging or collaborative server programs. RAID 10 is able to handle multiple hard drive crashes and is most often corrupted by physical damage such as overheating or water damage necessitating repair and data recovery. Recovering a RAID 10 server, however, is far from easy.
Hard Drive Recovery Group is the best option in RAID 10 data recovery as their technicians are highly trained, experienced and able to recover your data within 24 hours. While many corporations house Information Technology professionals, they are often able to perform simple RAID array rebuilds, before data (more…)
