There are a lot of businesses out there today relying on Dell's EqualLogic SANs for sensitive data storage. If your company is one of them and you have a SAN failure, rest assured the R3 maintains a fully-equipped and staffed data recovery lab for EqualLogic SANs.

Our specialists can help you restore order whether your SAN failed due to physical hard drive failure or human error. We'll minimize your data losses and get your RAID back online as quickly as possible.

R3's Data Recovery Engineers have plenty of experience working with (and recovering data from) Dell EqualLogic SAN arrays.

While EqualLogic started out as an independent organization, they were acquired by Dell in 2006. The EqualLogic brand has always been focused on providing large-scale storage solutions for major enterprises. Recently, though, EqualLogic has taken advantage of technological innovations to broaden their reach and offer affordable storage solutions to medium-scale commercial customers. Today EqualLogic SANs can be found in IT departments of many different sizes.

The latest and greatest RAID arrays from EqualLogic make use of SSDs -- solid state drives -- in addition to traditional hard drives. This offers users a great blend of reliability together with blazing fast data transfers. EqualLogic offers several different SAN and NAS storage solutions, and they're particularly noted for their arrays that make use of iSCSI technology.

EqualLogic storage arrays may fail for any number of reasons. A few of the common ones include:

  • Data Corruption
  • Accidental Overwrites
  • Power Disturbances / Natural Disasters
  • Parity Issues
  • Files Lost to Connection Errors
  • Simultaneous Failure Of Multiple Drives
  • RAID Rebuild Failure

Data loss is the worst-case scenario whenever a storage device fails, and EqualLogic equipment incorporates multiple safeguards to prevent or at least minimize lossage. (This is particularly true for their enterprise-grade systems.) Data loss can never be completely ruled out, though.

R3 can help you with data recovery from the full range of EqualLogic storage servers. This includes all of the most popular models, such as the PS 6110/6100, the PS4110, and EqualLogic's blade arrays.

Our technical staff has decades of engineering experience working with a highly diverse selection of hardware and software. Thanks to our expertise, we can typically recover all of the data from a failed EqualLogic system in just a few days.

Handling An EqualLogic RAID Failure Properly

In order to maximize the odds of recovering lost data from a failed EqualLogic system, there are certain steps you need to take as soon as the failure occurs. Even though recovery will be possible in all but the very worst cases, by acting to minimize RAID damage and protect your data you can make the recovery process much easier for the professional engineers who eventually handle it.

When EqualLogic equipment fails, you should not attempt to use data recovery software on it yourself. If the hard drives are physically damaged, do not attempt to repair them. Rebuilding the array is also dangerous, as this can damage internal media and corrupt otherwise pristine data. It's best to leave every step of the repair and recovery work to professionals. A company that turns your RAID over to experts working in a cleanroom will get the best results.

At R3, you can get a free media estimate on any EqualLogic device. As soon as we receive your media, our engineers will run a thorough diagnostic and give you an estimate regarding both the cost and the time required to recover your data, repair your device, and return it to you.

In emergency situations, we offer industry-leading 24/7/365 service. We typically complete emergency RAID recovery jobs in less than 48 hours.

Why Dell EqualLogic SANs Need Experienced Professionals

When an iSCSI Lun (or worse, a whole volume) fails, recovering the data from it is challenging. EqualLogic devices use a proprietary file system that is not publicly documented. In order to recover the data in these situations, custom-built software tools are required. Our recovery experts have crafted just the tools needed to work with all types of EqualLogic devices.

R3's EqualLogic SAN Recovery Skills Include:

  • Recovering data from multi-drive failures
  • Recovering corrupted iSCSI Luns
  • Full Recovery following SAN hardware failure
  • Recovering data after multi-drive failures

It doesn't matter whether your company uses a RAID 5, RAID 10, or RAID 50. R3 can get your equipment up and running fast with no permanent data loss. We're the most extensively credentialed EqualLogic data recovery service in the industry. Our results are reliable, and our streamlined case management procedures minimize hassles.
