A server is a program or device that acts according to a server-client model. You, the client, send a request to the server, and the server fulfills it. Servers share data and resources in order to handle the many tasks and services we rely on as we go about our daily lives.
Like any other data storage device, servers can fail, crash, and break down.
There are many ways a server can fail. Any server failure will result in some downtime for your business, but not all failures result in data loss. A failure of the hard drives beyond the tolerances of your RAID array will result in data loss. Data can also be lost through accidental or purposeful file deletion from the server. Hard drive failure is by far the most common reason clients come to us in need of our RAID server data recovery services.
At HTI Services, our technicians are extremely proficient at reconstructing and retrieving lost files from failed RAID arrays. The server data recovery process generally follows the same steps as data recovery from a failed RAID array. Our technicians will take the hard drives that were in your crashed server, repair any drives that have failed, and use custom software to reconstruct the RAID array. From that point, our data recovery technicians make use of our powerful data recovery tools to recover and reunite you with your critical data.
