Realities of RAID: Data Loss Still Exists

RAID (Redundant Array of Independent Disks) technology has been around for many years, and has proven to be a reliable and convenient storage option. More and more companies have turned to these systems to manage their vast amounts of data since they not only boast significantly better reading/writing speeds over single drive servers and better fault tolerance should a drive fail, but also because they offer far superior data protection. However, as is the case with all technology, nothing is fool proof, including RAID devices.

File Recovery and the Recycle Bin

It is an unfortunate rite of passage, but if you are a computer user, the odds are very likely that you have accidentally deleted one or more files from your system. In some cases, this is only a minor inconvenience; in others, however, it can be a major disaster of epic proportions. Amidst all of the panic and emotion an accidental deletion can bring is an essential question: When is “gone” really “gone” and when is file recovery possible?

Trends in data recovery management

In the struggle to ensure data protection, reduce backup windows, and manage costs – both capital and operational – IT managers face increasing challenges. Continual data growth, spurred by an increase in business data from databases, e-mail systems, file shares and other sources, is only one aspect of the problem. Adding to the burden on IT management is the need to retain data of all sorts for longer periods due to changes in how businesses operate, and evolving regulatory demands.
