Professional Data Recovery Services for Sun and Oracle Servers, NAS & SAN Storage Devices
The line of servers sold by Sun Microsystems by Oracle are known for being flexible as far as both their hardware and software are concerned. The Solaris operating system, developed by Sun, offers a well-supported and open source design that is a favorite of a number of the world's tech departments.
Data loss is always a possibility. Even though the SAN and NAS devices, along with the RAID arrays Oracle and Sun sell are superior and built with a superior hardware, they are servers and servers always have the possibility for data loss.
Oracle and Sun servers just so happen to be the types of servers that our company's data recovery engineers have received specialized training on. Also, the Solaris operating system, along with many others are within their range of expertise. With their knowledge and experiences, our R3 engineers can obtain the full data sets from nearly every Sun server and have been successful in a majority of the cases they have completed.
Being that each Sun server varies from the other, the process of data recovery is quite different for each case. By contacting us, you will be able to speak with an engineer that will help you determine what course if best for your specific server. Your server will require its own type of data recovery.
The remote recovery option is the quickest in most cases. This process allows your hardware to remain where it is. Also, your system is re-mounted and then used as normal once the data recovery is complete. An engineer uses remote software to connect to your server using bit-level access. Downtime is at a minimum as logical procedures are used to correct errors and return your server to original.
You will find that certain RAID arrays and NAS devices by Sun will have issues that need to be taken care of in-house. Many times, misconfiguration or a power surge lead to corruption or failure of several of the server's files. When this happens, we are able to recover the media that has been damaged, but must do so in a clean area using techniques that are advanced to recover the data. Clones are created of the drives that have failed. This ensures the results that are the best possible. Specialized software helps with the data corruption aspect.
Give us a call at 0800 999 3282 to discuss your unique case and what can be done for recovery with one of our engineers.
A Sun server will display many different symptoms that may show that data loss has occurred. Solaris GUI alerts and LEDs are the primary indicators. These show that there is failure in at least one of the server's hard drives. There are times when your Sun server uses LEDs to show that there is a power failure or the operating environment is poor. Should this happen, contacting the customer support at Sun and speaking with an engineer specializing in recovery is something you should do as quickly as you can.
Another major concern is configuration issues. These can cause data to become inaccessible. The words, "error executing server" is just one example. It shows that the server is not able to operate, but the solution can be quite easy or something more complex. Failures such as these, "unknown" varieties, indicate that the Sun servers have hardware failure. This issue does not allow the server to properly start up.
For configuration issues, it is crucial to take extreme amounts of car. Even the simplest problems can become quite complicated on these high-end servers. When your Sun server displays an error message, R3 engineers are able to determine which type of data recovery solutions are necessary.
It is important and will lead to an efficient conversation with our data recovery engineers if you will have as much information as you can in regards to what has led to the data loss in your server. Collect information for the file system, operating system, how many drives are contained in the SAN, NAS, or RAID, along with any additional information you feel will be helpful in the process of recovering your data.
Once data loss occurs, avoid running your server. If you find there are more than one failed drivers, never try to reinitialize a server. Instead, contact Sun Microsystems. Another option is to contact an engineer who is trained in data recovery.
A full recovery occurs in nearly every one of the Sun server cases. Quick action on your part improves the chances your data is recovered, lowers the cost of the service, and results in a shorter amount of time for the necessary solution. A shorter turnaround time, along with the chances of a full recovery are greatly improved with your quick actions.

I have recently used R3D to retrieve data from an external hard drive.
I called Andy at 11pm on a Saturday after my hard drive failed, he immediately ran through the symptoms and calmed my fears that all data was lost, but was honest that data recoveries are not always successful.
I required the data immediately as it was for a deadline the following Friday, the issue was I was based in London and the lab based in Sheffield.
After searching all data companies in and around London none would answer my call on a Saturday. In fact no one else would answer my call or say they could look at my case on the Sunday.
I took the drive myself to R3D and was very impressed with their facilities. Andy also explained the whole process and what they were doing at each stage.
Unfortunately the hard drive had a physical failure and needed to be rebuilt to have any chance of recovering the information.
After starting the rebuild at 4pm on the Sunday, Andy advised it would take him and his team until the morning to know if any information was recoverable - fantastic I thought. Andy and Mark got to work on my drive as soon as I left and by 10pm on Sunday they had retrieved almost the entirety of the information of my hard drive.
I cannot reccomend R3D highly enough, they are clearly experts in their field and have a passion for what they do. Through the whole process Andy kept me informed of progress and explained everything they were doing.
If you have a crisis or any data recovery needs these are the guys you need!
