Professional RAID Data Recovery Services For Apple Xserve Systems
Apple Xserve systems use many different RAID levels - and at R3, we offer various services for each configuration.
The most popular Apple Xserve configuration is the standard stripe set that has parity - the RAID 5. The default stripe size for RAIDs is 64k, which makes for 128 sectors. In such sets, the data is striped across each disk, and a parity block which rotates between the drives. This particular parity block utilizes a XOR algorithm.
In a RAID 5 system, if a disk happens to fail, the RAID controller card defaults to degraded mode, allowing the server to carry on operating with no interruption. Data recovery might be necessary in case there's corruption within essential parity blocks, or if a second drive happens to fails the array is operated in that state. Additional data loss may happen in case of RAID controller card failures, failed firmware upgrades, or natural disasters.
Xserve supports other hardware RAID levels - namely levels 0, 1, 3 and 0+1. Other levels, such as 10, 30 and 50 can be chosen too, but these need to be supported through the use of host-based software RAID. Our engineers are skilled in dealing with all sorts of configurations, including options that the Xserve hardware does not support - and our laboratories are completely equipped to perform Xserve data recovery.

The inevitable happened and a CF card failed when I was filming a wedding. 3 companies told me the card had not recorded any info and that the footage was not recoverable. Someone mentioned R3 Data and I thought I’d give it one last attempt.
The service was second to none. They sent a courier to collect my card (the other companies had never physically seen my card) they kept me up to date with the process throughout and managed to return all the corrupt files intact. To be able to tell the bride all has been saved was a feeling I’ll never forget and I’ll happily use R3 again (thought hopefully not to soon).
