Project Description

Data Recovery Lab
NAS, SAN, DAS, SDS recovery

NAS, SAN, DAS and SDS recovery requires patience and wisdom

Understanding how those Network devices are built, imaging each drive independently to keep a no footprint policy is key in such recovery. We excel at this.

Each hard drive is opened in a dust free environment

NAS,SAN,DAS and SDS Devices

NAS: network attached storage

– NAS systems mainly stores data as files
– Supports one or more RAID levels (Avoid data loss)
– NAS are connected to the Ethernet network (TCP/IP mainly)
– Support multiple users connecting to it simultaneously
– Simple, inexpensive and easy
– Network congestion (Ethernet nature)
– Consumes more bandwidth from the TCP/IP network

SAN: storage area network

– SAN is scalable (100’s of disks if needed)
– Performance isn’t affected by Ethernet traffic
– SAN systems require no reboots to add new disks, to replace disks or to configure RAID groups
– SAN data is zoned (nobody can see your data)

DAS: direct attached storage

– High availability.
– High access rate
– No network setup complications.
– Storage capacity expansion.
– Data security and fault tolerance.

SDS: software defined storage

– Better connectivity of existing hardware
– Joint management of the connected storages system
– Reduced costs
– Better performances
– The new data structures of the SDS software solutions lead to additional problems in failures or defects
– VMware is a good example of use for SDS
