Today’s businesses, as well as many home media servers, Network Attached Storage and Storage Area Network devices run on RAID arrays. When a RAID drive fails, it can spell disaster and the loss of mission critical information. A RAID failure is enough of an unpleasant surprise. You don’t need a surprise when you get your bill for RAID hard drive repair, too. That’s why we offer flat rate pricing for RAID hard drive repair and RAID recovery.
Our prices start at $500 and depend on the size of the drives in the array and the complexity of the recovery based on factors such as how many drives have failed, what went wrong, and whether a hardware or software controller requires repair, as well.
Understanding RAID Arrays and RAID Use
RAID stands for Redundant Array of Inexpensive Drives. RAID arrays have been a preferred method of enterprise level storage for a number of years, thanks to their speed and reliability. With the proliferation of both “big data” and home media servers, RAID arrays now store terrabytes of valuable movies, music and home media for individuals and families, as well.
A RAID Level 1 (RAID 1) array or higher has built-in redundancy thanks to data mirroring methods. When one drive in a RAID 1 array fails, data is accessible on its mirror drive. However, when one drive in a RAID array fails, it puts added strain on the other hard disk drives in the array, which can lead to cascading failure. Cascading failure in a RAID array leads to data loss, and the need for RAID hard drive repair and data recovery services.
RAID levels 5 and higher often rely on a hardware or software controller to improve performance of the array, but if a controller fails, it can lead to data loss and a crashed RAID server.
When Your RAID Drive Fails
When a drive in your RAID array fails, power down the array immediately. Call professionals in RAID hard drive repair to swap out the drive before cascading failure occurs. Repairing a RAID drive and rebuilding the RAID array without data loss is a complex process that requires specialists with extensive knowledge and training, as well as the supply chain partners to get the necessary parts for RAID repair.
Do not attempt to repair the drive and rebuild the array yourself. With our fair, flat-rate pricing, it’s not worth the risk of losing all the data on your RAID drive.
Sometimes, a RAID drive will fail and cascading failure of the array will follow very quickly. If more than one drive is damaged in a RAID 1 array, or more than two hard disk drives fail in a RAID 6 configuration, data loss will occur. We offer RAID repair and data recovery to extract the missing data from the damaged drives.
RAID Hard Drive Repair You Can Trust
For more than 15 years, we have completed successful RAID hard drive repair, rebuilt arrays and recovered lost data from all levels of RAID, including RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 6, RAID 10, RAID 50 and others.
Our flat rate pricing means you’ll know exactly what you’re getting and can make the decision to let us help with no fears of added costs or surcharges when we’re done. Start the recovery process now or view our pricing page to find out, upfront, how much RAID hard drive repair will cost today.
