One of the things that I really don’t like about management at our shop is the fact that everybody has to work as if tomorrow is the final day on this earth. That’s right, I’m talking about a situation where everything has to be done yesterday. It’s particularly a bad situation when you have on unplanned event that attacks you. As an example, we had a full on raid array failure the other week and fortunately got the server we were using to store all of our Microsoft exchange data. Naturally, when something like this happens pretty much everyone in the company’s going to wonder what the hell is going on. So obviously when this did happen, it was not a very good situation at all. I immediately got on the phone with our raid data recovery company which of course provides server repair for all manufacturers. I was glad that they were there to calm down my boss, because I thought that he was going to have a heart attack.
Too Much Server Repair Lately
I don’t know if it’s just bad luck or exactly what is happening right now, but I feel like I have been backing up a lot of our servers lately and have had to send them to specialized server repair companies more than I ever have had to. It’s funny, because most of the server companies actually offer a warranty that doesn’t cover any of the data on your hard drive. This sucks, because we need to recover data from crashed hard drive units, you automatically assume that your server manufacturer is going to support you with this. Of course, they do not. They have no problem recommending a data recovery service company that you should use, but it really can’t repair the damage. I really think that server companies need to start looking into providing some kind of data recovery insurance, because it seems like the hard disk technology is pretty weak on a lot of these machines. They need to figure this out.
