Disk Doctors RAID Recovery Services now support recovery from Buffalo TeraStation.
Hard drive failures can be very frustrating; you may think that your data may not be recoverable. Even though RAID systems are reputed to be "data saviors", it is a fact that they can also face data loss. With the introduction of network storage, the process overheads for a stand alone server have reduced and NAS devices are becoming the most popular choice for file serving or data storage. Offering up to a terabyte of storage space, the Buffalo TeraStation is at present the unmatched giant of inexpensive NAS. Just like any other data storage device, this one also is prone to data loss.
With the increasing popularity of NAS Boxes, Buffalo TeraStation usage has also increased. The requests for RAID Server Recovery for NAS devices increased at Disk Doctors Labs locations worldwide. This eventually created a specific R & D requirement, as most NAS boxes, available from different vendors, are unique in terms of file system and storage techniques, special RAID Data Recovery techniques had to be devised.
Buffalo TeraStation uses an embedded Linux and this file system is quite different from the native file system used by Linux. This file system effectively supports data management of terabytes of storage. Special tools designed by the Disk Doctors research team help to take an image of each healthy drive. Thereafter, using special algorithms, it is possible to create a virtual volume that also displays the possible combinations which might form the RAID array. Once the array or the best combination has been formed, tools are applied that are designed specifically for Buffalo TeraStation. This is to identify the data stripes, which further helps to identify volume structure, eventually recovering terabytes of critical data.
The strategy devised, for recovering Buffalo TeraStation RAID arrays, is not limited to the tools and utilities produced by the Disk Doctors research team. Rebuilding RAID arrays requires a lot of separate techniques. The special file system of the NAS box requires manual processing, along with use of standard recovery tools, to recover data.
"We are pleased with the current expansion related to RAID Server Data Recovery techniques being augmented at our research center. Special techniques and algorithms developed at our in-house research center are made available at all our labs across the globe, which will enable our customers to receive most advanced RAID recovery services across US, Europe and Asia," said Omer Faiyaz VP Marketing & Alliances at Disk Doctors Labs Inc.
