Create a Data Recovery Strategy By Neil Robertson

Downtime can cause huge losses for any organization. Find out what to consider when architecting your data recovery strategy.

Most Unusual Requests for Data Recovery

Fire, water, exploding batteries, hardware failure, accidental damage… there are many reasons a hard drive can go south, taking your data with it. Companies like Data Detect specialise in retrieving that data, in the event that it’s irreplaceable (remember to backup, people!)

However, amongst the fairly ‘run of the mill’ reasons for needing data recovery, a few gems are sown. Here are the top ten for 2006.

Waiting for Disaster: Majority of Computer Users Invite Data Loss

Acording to a new survey from ODR, a majority of people invite the loss of critical computer data by waiting for their computers to break down and neglecting proper backup procedures. Despite the fact that 79 percent of people place significant value on their data – 40 percent classifying it as “priceless” – poor data protection techniques will doom many people to experience data loss at some point.

Don’t use tape for recovery!

Most operations that end with tape, and of all recovery operations that begin with tape, recovery will fail about 30% of the time.

Five causes of lost digital holiday pictures

It’s all very well taking loads of snaps to store on your ever-increasing memory card, but what if you can’t access your photos when you get home? This does happen – and these may be the five main causes.

Data Recovery Tips

If you have ever faced the loss of data, you will know what it is like to have anxiety over severe trouble with your server, hard disk or RAID health. This is however, a time for some caution in terms of time and money.

Get a Grip on Those Gripes August 2006 by Greg Shields

Ever get just flat out pissed off about something in IT? I sure do. Often, the problem is that there is little we can do to fundamentally change what is bugging us. Or is there?

SAN’s Simplified

SANs are not the simplest technology. For all their power, knowing the finer points of fabrics can spook even the best IT manager. That’s just one of the reasons that iSCSI is in the ascendant. By running SCSI commands over TCP/IP, including Ethernet, it puts IP storage and block-based SANs in reach of companies that don’t have the specialists to install Fibre Channel. The specialists, and the budget.

Storage Guru Predicts Major Changes In Technology

One of the newest technologies, RAID 6, will definitely help from a business continuity perspective, an independent consultant said at a recent conference. But it has the side effect of increasing the number of reads and writes for a drive by 50%, which adds to the wear over time.

All About Data Recovery

At some point in time, everyone who owns a computer will experience the trials and tribulations of hard drive failure. The reasons behind it vary, and could include everything from a human error to damages resulting from flood or water. Viruses can play a role as well, along with many other factors.
