VMware Data Recovery

VMware data rescue - recovery of virtual machines of VMware

The VMware data rescue of virtual machines requires extensive knowledge, as this is a proprietary product, whose documentation has not been published. In the course of research and development, in particular solutions for the data recovery of VMware vSphere ESX or ESXI for the Enterprise Storage segment as well as for the data rescue of VMware Workstation were developed. Similarly, Attingo offers VMware server data rescue.

VMware data rescue – common problems

  • A VMDK file was accidentally deleted, a snapshot was deleted

    The deletion of a virtual machine is not comparable with the deletion of a .xls or .doc file. Often virtual servers contain databases such as SQL, Exchange, Oracle, etc. or other virtual servers, such as VMware, Citrix XEN, Microsoft Hyper-V or Oracle VM VirtualBox. As a professional provider of solutions for data rescue in the storage segment, we have procedures at our disposal, with which deleted or corrupt VMware VMDK files can be recovered.
  • Damage to the HOST system

    Damage to the HOST system can have ramifications for the virtual machine. An accidentally formatted RAID array or a failed RAID – RAID offline – can also be a cause for the data loss. Additionally, damage to the iSCSI volume or damage to a LUN can lead to the failure of VMDK files. In the course of the VMware data rescue, as the first step, the RAID is simulated virtually and prepared in our in-house laboratories. In the next step, the logical data rescue and data recovery of the VMDK files is performed.
  • Errors within the VMware file system VMFS

    The VMFS file system can be damaged due to logical causes, but also by physical damage, for instance defective sectors or bad blocks within the VMDK file. Attingo has reverse-engineered the proprietary file system VMFS and for many years has been successfully recovering data from failed virtual machines by VMware in the case of a file system error.
