0 NEC RAID Recovery

admin to Uncategorized  

nec-recoveryOne of my buddies was actually surprised that we decided to use NEC raid arrays at our shop. In fact, I think that he thought that this company didn’t really even manufacturer raid arrays anymore. I will admit that I hadn’t heard a lot about them in quite a while either, but one of the salespeople had a number of contacts at NEC and I think this was kind of a situation where he was trying to pay back a favor. Well, I have to say that it was a very expensive favor because unfortunately very quickly we found ourselves needing NEC raid recovery because of the fact that the servers we bought were based on some pretty goofy raid controllers. I had never seen a setup like this before, but the salesman that we were dealing with told us that it was a regular scenario. I was used to dealing with Adaptec raid controllers, and I think I should’ve stuck with them.

Fujitsu Raid Recovery

One of the most surprising things about our company when I first got the job as an administrator was that we were still using Fujitsu Primergy raid servers. I honestly wasn’t sure exactly what to do about this, because I had never used Fujitsu raid servers before. I came to realize that they had a pretty good user interface and that this was a pretty solid solution from a company that I had actually not knowing very much about. A couple of friends of mine had used Fujitsu laptops before, but we had never really seen Fujitsu raid servers in use. The cool thing was that when we actually needed to get Fujitsu raid recovery, the company was very supportive and was able to point us to a number of local raid data recovery shop that specialized in Fujitsu Primergy raid servers. Very good raid recovery support with these guys, I have to say.

Trying to Find Fujitsu Raid Recovery

Typically, you don’t expect to be an expert on every kind of computer hardware that is available. Clearly that is impossible because there are so many different server manufacturers out there that are providing very similar solutions. And, although the user interfaces are often different on the raid access platform, the way these service reform is pretty common. The issue I had was that there actually was a a lot of English support documents when it came to Fujitsu raid servers. We were using a server from the Primergy line, and I didn’t know exactly what I could expect as far as overall raid recovery support . I wasn’t really sure exactly of what potential there was that the servers would fail, but I do know that at other jobs I have had a few raid failures and want to make sure that I had full raid data recovery support if it became necessary.

recoveryI should have known that it was probably not the best idea to pick up on old IBM serveraid system. I had heard a lot of things about these machines, and not unfortunately a lot of good was coming out of the testimonials. But, my boss said he wanted to sit at a very cheap rate server in order to house our Oracle database. I tried to tell him that it probably wasn’t a good idea to try and save money on a storage platform that would be using such a key program for our company, but he said that he was looking to go cheap. This was unfortunate, because of course immediately we had a situation that required IBM ServeRAID data recovery, which as not a lot of people know, is pretty difficult to find. We found a really decent company that offers raid data recovery as a specialization, and they managed to fix the server, but at a much higher cost than usual.

It was a stupid move, but I have to say that I did warn my boss that getting any kind of raid recovery, especially something like Oracle or Exchange recovery is going to be critically expensive. Not only do you have to deal with a complicated hardware setup, but you also have to deal with the fact that these programs are not exactly easy to recover with the utilities that are provided. Therefore, you obviously are going to need some kind of proprietary raid data recovery techniques in order to ensure that you can retrieve as much of the data as possible.

Well, now that you spend a couple thousand dollars more than he originally wanted to want to raid servers set up, I have suggested Dell PowerEdge servers because at least they are well supported for a good period of time. I hope he follows my suggestion.

Fast Raid Recovery

Yes, I certainly do understand exactly what it means to find yourself in a situation where a raid server fails miserably. This is not something you expect, because when you read anything about raid servers, you understand that the redundancy of the striped disks are typically going to save you. But unfortunately, what a lot of people don’t realize is that often the hard drive that make up the raid array are all manufactured at once and often you can get a bad batch of hard drive. When this happens, you really have no idea exactly when a raid recovery situation is going to strike. Certainly, when it does, you want to make sure that you have all the right contacts in order to get your data back as soon as possible. Understand that most data that is stored on raid servers is going to be pretty critical to your company, so you’ll want to back right away.

More Mac Data Recovery, Please

I actually found myself surprised the other week when I was doing a survey of the tech industry and I discovered one of the things that most people were looking for but could not find was mac data recovery. This actually surprised me quite a bit, mainly because of the fact that Macs are starting to get a lot more widespread in the city. There was a time when Mac computers were simply for designers, and no one else actually using. But I think a lot of people are beginning to see that there are a lot of business applications to macs, especially because of the iPhone.

But I can’t believe that the hard drive recovery industry hasn’t kept up very well when it comes to mac data recovery. They need to understand that there is a huge market out there, and if they can capitalize, they will be quite well.

0 Mac Data Recovery

admin to Uncategorized  

mac-recoveryI really don’t understand what a lot of people are thinking these days when it comes to operating Mac computers as their only system. I know that a lot of people really love Mac computers, but you have to realize that there just isn’t the kind of software products available for them. Plus, Apple has made it pretty clear that there are not a lot of people who can actually repair Apple computers without their permission. And in fact, Apple Computer itself doesn’t really do very many repairs at all: instead opting to replace their computers out right.

Unfortunately, when you are talking about losing data, this is just not enough. You need to get yourself mac data recovery, quickly, and you need to be sure that your data is going to be safe. But finding a hard drive recovery company out there that can do this is not as easy as you might think. In fact, it is hard.

Mac Data Recovery is Key to Your Business

I think I was one of those people who was delusional about how effective Mac computers are. I guess I’m just mad right now because we unfortunately had two Mac hard drives fail in our department, and unfortunately they contained a lot of really critical data that was important to our company. We ended up contacting a company about mac data recovery, and we were fortunate that they were able to provide us with some real solid service. In fact, I believe that they enabled us to get all of our data back within 24 hours. I was surprised at how fast this takes, particularly because you have to basically rebuild the Mac hard drive from scratch. That can’t be easy.

but, these people are data recovery professionals that know exactly what they are doing. I certainly have no idea of what the whole process involved, but I can say if you are running a business, it will be key to you.

Can You Recover Raid Servers?

I will admit that in all my years of working with computers, I really never learned to recover raid systems properly. I think it is because the raid array system has always scared me a bit because of the fact that this is a very strange way of storing data. I get the fact that hard drives are the best way to store data, but trying to strike back data across several drives it never really made a lot of logical sense to me. But, it is technically the key form of data storage for pretty much every kind of company that uses a high-end server.

But, I am glad that there are a lot of really good companies out there that provide raid data recovery these days. If this was in the case, there would be probably a lot of problems in the business world in general. Data recovery is not something that you should see that.

This is the story of the death of my hard drive, and its subsequent effects on my life. One long and stormy night, I was intently working away on my latest crime drama novel. As I so cleverly began typing on the last page, “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”, suddenly, my computer screen went dark. I wondered, “Did my joke about Jack bring some malevolent spirit to kill my computer?”

crashed-hard-drive-unitAlas, as humorous as this may sound, hard drive disasters are no joke. Every week, 140,000 hard drives crash in the US alone. 6% of all computers will suffer an episode of data loss yearly. Given the amount of computers used by businesses, this 6% translates to approximately 4.6 million losses of data. Some hard drive brands are particularly susceptible to failure. 60% of companies that lost their data, will shut their doors within 6 months of the disaster. The staggering cost of this loss comes in at over 20 billion dollars. With shocking statistics like these, it only illustrates the dependency we have on our computers.

A rose by any other name is still a rose. Apply that saying to exercise, and you’re on the right track to understanding it. Low-impact aerobics exercise, for example, has a number of names. But no matter what you call it–soft, low-intensity, low-level, fluid, or no-bounce–the bottom line is still exercise.

Regardless of whether you are riding your bike, swimming laps in a pool, walking 10 blocks, or rowing your boat down the river, the end result will be good news for your heart and lungs. Any prolonged exercise that stimulates the heart and lungs to increase the amount of oxygen intake is aerobic. And a strong cardiovascular system is a good indicator of overall fitness, says Greg Hennessey from the EHealthInstitute.

Not All Exercise Is Equal

2 Safe Biking… A Quiz

admin to Family  

bikingcJeff, in a hurry, maneuvered his bicycle to the right of the cars stopped at the stop sign, and glided into the intersection. It was something he had done so many times. Like many cyclists, he had the attitude that stop signs were really meant for cars, not bikes. The first car at the stop sign blocked his view to the left, so he did not see the car coming until just before it hit him. Similarly, the teen driving the car had no chance to see Jeff before he sailed into the intersection.

Jeff was critically injured.

Losing (Safety) Consciousness

When does it happen, this loss of safely consciousness? When you first learned to ride a bike, your probably followed all the rules. You stopped at stop signs, looked both ways, were cautious of driveways, yielded right of way to pedestrians, and kept your bike in good condition. Then, perhaps one (more…)
