Oracle Server & Sun Microsystems Data Recovery

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.

Sun Servers: The Data Recovery Process

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.


Symptoms And Error Messages Of The Sun Server

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.

Data Recovery Tips For Sun Sparc

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.

What Our Customers Say About Us

I lost my data after inadvertently deleting my hard drive instead of my wife’s micro SD card in her phone. This was late at night after putting in some serious hours so I can only assume I was over tired and not really thinking. I right clicked the drive I thought was my wife’s card, it asked if I wanted to format it, I said ok and renamed it. A few seconds passed and I took out the SD card put it in the phone and the photos were still there. It took me a few moments to realise what I had done. When I went to the drive that held ten years work there was nothing there and it was renamed.

I went drip white I could hardly breathe… My wife came in asking what was wrong I explained that I had deleted the hard drive and lost everything not just photos, contracts, books I wrote, manuals for my company, all the history of everything I had ever done.

I quickly Googled data recovery whilst my wife found my friend Jack Daniels, there were a few that came up some saying they were 24 hours, when I rang no answer. I came across R3 Data Recovery and they said they were 24 hours, I rang and a real person answered my call. The chap I spoke to calmed me down, asked what I had done and what I had done after. I had the insight to not try and do anything myself as well as do nothing else to the drive. He told me they have great success and a good track record. I explained to him that right now I had lost anything so any data recovery would be better than none.

I have now had the drive back for a week or so and I have not found any of the work that is missing. I have lost my honeymoon pictures, however I may have these on disc somewhere. I estimate the data recovery is about 85%-90% successful. I know there are things missing but it has allowed me to carry on seamlessly without any major issues. I have as of yet to have really missed something. There was a bit of a glitch with the lead that when I connected the drive to the computer it told me the drive had malfunctioned. They organised a pick up the next day and within three days I had a new lead and the data was there. I think all in all even with the lead issue the returned my data within the ten days they said.

I cannot recommend them highly enough. Do not go for anyone else nor attempt anything yourself just call these guys and leave it with them, They kept me very informed and have done a cracking job I am amazed… they exceeded my expectations, thankfully.
