Data Recovery Storage (NAS, SAS, SAN, SNAP)

The AABBOO-Data recovery team has built, in conjunction with several RAID and storage manufacturer and leading hard drive manufacturer, a Europe-wide network of specialists for RAID Data Recovery, which has the most advanced technology to guarantee the fastest processing even in the toughest RAID injury cases..

This advantage gives us bundled know-how for the safe recovery of RAID and NAS, SAN, DAS, SAS, SNAP at any data storage capacity. Thus, we are also able to process systems of government, universities, data centers, ISPs and corporations are safe and reliable partner. Our experience as a top-rescue expert from the complex RAID and storage architectures is your security, in which we have developed now huge successes and earned our company a very good reputation. And this at affordable costs!

Storage systems

Storage systems are created for storing large amounts of data needed. They consist of several components, and offer many advantages. On the one hand they provide a good protection of data. The data is usually stored parallel on multiple media and systems, so that in case of default the entire data can be reconstructed. Another positive aspect is the rapid availability of data. If the data is stored on different systems, they may be sent parallel to the recipient. With this, you are independent from the access times of a hard disk and can achieve higher data throughput. A major disadvantage of such a system is quite high costs, which can be caused.

The most common form of this is the memory storage network. The data is stored in a network of various computer storage media. Here exist several concepts and technologies.

  • SAN The most widespread in this field is the SAN - Storage Area Network, this will be hard drive subsystems in a server system. Another variant is the NAS (Network Attached Storage), which binds mass media in a local area network.
  • Related to this is SAS (server attached storage). With this concept storage media will be designated which are connected directly to a server and are ready for those exclusively. Strictly speaking, the internal hard drives of a server are a SAS.
  • DAS (Direct Attached Storage) is a mass storage directly connected to a computer. It may be a single hard disk or a disk array.
  • These storage systems are used where large amounts of data must be managed efficiently. Especially in public authorities, business and on the Internet these storage facilities play an important role. Large database systems can be using the solution in many cases to the individual data to spend and safely retain.

Varieties of storage

The SAS - Server Attached Storage - is a simple memory system, which is directly connected to a server, and is made available for it. This includes, among other things, internal and external hard disks as well as disk arrays. Not infrequently, in this context, the term DAS - Direct Attached Storage is used. These types of memory are not integrated into a network. The data is, as with most mass storage, being transferred in blocks.

In general usage the LAN (Local Area Network) is widespread. Here are several computers put together on a local network to be able to communicate with each other. The difference is a SAN is, however, no network for communicating, but a network in order to provide data. SAN is connected to the server system and the individual computers and combines these with a hard compound. Advantages of such a system are the high flexibility and the central security issues. Furthermore, the data can be centrally managed, and within the shortest time to reach its recipients. In general, SAN systems are equipped with fiber optic cables; gigantic transfer rates of up to 16 Gbit / s are theoretically possible. In a SAN, the individual components are used as often, so in the event of failure no restrictions are to be feared.

A NAS is a storage system is connected to a local network to exploit the additional capacity. The NAS is often a separate disk, but can also be combined with a SAN. By directly connecting the local network the transmission rate of this system is not necessarily the best, but in most cases sufficient. The advantages of this system are the rapid installation and simple administration. Many companies rely on such a data memory to cope large amounts of data. The security is also guaranteed in this type of storage.

A SNAP server is based on a NAS system and has the advantage that even without a detailed knowledge it can be operated and a lot of storage space is available. SNAP server are being included in an existing LAN and can be integrated quickly be put into operation. The storage capacity can be several terabytes and is operated by specially organized software. Due to the good performance and the low price of these servers, they are mostly used in smaller and medium-sized businesses. The maintenance and administration can be done by an employee who doesn´t need detailed knowledge of networks and storage systems.
