Not only does secure Remote Data Recovery exist, but it is an excellent option to consider if you experience data loss in a corporate environment.
The next time you are in a data center (if you are not sitting in one right now that is) take a good, long look at your complex storage system. Now imagine that a server rack experiences multiple failures (server, drives, you name it…) causing a large percentage of the data managed and stored on that rack to be lost. What do you do to get that data recovered? Are you going to disassemble and pack the entire rack, server and drives in order to get that data recovered? Will you pay for an engineer to come onsite? Both are viable options.
Shipping everything is an option. Not only is packing the rack, server and drives time consuming, it is also expensive and adds time onto the recovery. It also can be risky sending everything off-site. What if it gets lost in shipping?
On-site data recovery is an excellent option if the data you lost is a part of a complex storage configuration or is too sensitive to leave its current location. In other words, if your issue is affecting a part of a large storage setup, or company security policies will not allow for another option, onsite recovery may be your only option.
As always, we like to offer our customers options, and Remote Data Recovery can be the easiest, least-costly and most efficient solution. Remote Data recovery is performed through a secure internet connection and can be completed in as little as an hour. No need for an onsite visit or shipping of devices.
If it wasn’t easy enough already, we just updated our software to make it even faster and more secure. Kroll Ontrack is constantly updating their services to improve our customer’s experience. Remote Data Recovery was just one of many, recent advancements in our technology. I encourage you to keep up on what’s new at Kroll Ontrack by finding us on Twitter, Linked In or Facebook.
