Data Rescue 24/7

Data rescue of IBM system series

Data rescue of IBM servers

A successful data recovery of IBM servers needs comprehensive know-how. Defective SAS hard disks, damages of the RAID controller or of the already integrated SAS controller are the most common causes for data loss. An in-depth knowledge of the internal system structures (eg. firmware), algorithms (eg. distribution of the parity) and the behaviour of all the different IBM RAID controller as well as years of experience in the field of RAID data rescue are the foundation of a successful recovery of the needed data.

Error messages of IBM integrated management modules

The the IBM integrated management module informs you about the current system status. This sometimes gives information about the cause of failure, which may be useful for data recovery.

IBM Integrated Management Module with Critical Events

Critical Events can be:
  • Redundancy Lost for "Power Group 1" has asserted
  • The Drive has been disabled due to a detected fault
  • Array in system "SN#" has failed

Typical warning events are for example:
  • Failure Predicted on drive "Drive #" for array "SN#"

Data rescue of RAID systems and virtual machines

Because of continuous research and development, Attingo is the leading expert for data recovery of enterprise storage systems in virtualized environments. Irrespective of the used RAID level or degree of virtualisation, our engineers reconstruct on a regular basis lost data of storage RAID servers. A requirement therefor is knowledge of the host operating and file systems, the logical volume manager (eg. LVM), as well as the guest operating and file systems.

The less selfmade attempts are being done, the higer are the chances for a successful and complete data recovery. The hazard of an unrecoverable loss of data of IBM BladeCenter servers as well as IBM System x-Server series or IBM eServer zSeries is only in the rarest cases (less than 1%), caused by fatal damages of the hard disks. More common (about 8%) is a non-successful data rescue because of fatal rebuilds or operating and administration errors.

Prevention of further damage of IBM server

  • Mark very carefully all hard disks with the slot number and mark the faild drive additionally.
  • No further installation of programs.
  • Avoid rebuild. An incomplete or corrupt rebuild can complicate the data rescue. It even lowers the chances to recover all data and files

Data rescue and data analysis

Contact us for individual advice and an estimate of the costs, which depending on the work required, the damage that has occurred and the selected processing model. Additionally, we will handle your case from the pick-up until the delivery of the recovered data and will keep you up-to-date on the developments. In urgent cases, we are available around the clock for any questions you might have.
