Corporate Business Continuity Needs Met Through Newly Developed Kroll Ontrack Recovery Capabilities for NetApp, Dell EqualLogic and VMware
MINNEAPOLIS --(Business Wire)--
Ontrack, the leading provider of ediscovery,
recovery, and information
management products and services, today announced the availability
of new proprietary capabilities to address the latest versions and
corresponding data loss challenges associated with NetApp®,
EqualLogic™, and VMware®.
Leveraging this unique toolset, Kroll Ontrack has successfully recovered
data from both software and hardwar failures of current NetApp, Dell (News - Alert)
EqualLogic and VMware models.
NetApp Storage Systems
Kroll Ontrack can now recover from
multiple data loss failures within a NetApp storage environment. This
capability was developed as a result of a three-drive failure in a
RAID-DP®. Ontrack Data Recovery engineers are now able to emulate the
NetApp RAID controller and retrieve the data from the array - even in
the areas where there are more than two non-working HDDs. Leveraging
this capability, Kroll Ontrack recovered over 30 million files
and 7TB for one customer that lost over 14 NetApp storage volumes.
"Through custom real-time development
efforts, Kroll Ontrack has made six updates to its Dell EqualLogic
toolset in 2012 - each time for a new challenge," said Robert
Bloomquist, principal data recovery engineer, Kroll Ontrack. "Our
continuous innovation with respect to this enterprise tool has paid off.
We've had a 100 percent success rate with Dell EqualLogic recoveries."
For example, a recent case involved two Dell EqualLogic volumes that
were accidentally deleted from the user interface. One of the volumes
was an NFS share from a Windows server and contained 600GB of business
data, including Lotus Notes data. The other volume contained a VMware
VMFS partition with MS SQL virtual servers. The R&D team solved the data
structure related corruptions and implemented a full solution, resulting
in a 100 percent recovery of the deleted volumes from the NFS share and
VMware VMFS volume.
In addition to current model support for NetApp and
Dell EqualLogic, Kroll Ontrack is continuously enhancing its VMware
capabilities. Recent improvements include faster and more accurate
support for VMFS-5, deleted virtual disks and snapshots.
"When the Bank of Manhattan experienced a data loss event with a NetApp
Storage Area Network that was running VMware ESXi 4.1, Kroll Ontrack was
successfully able to utilize their proprietary solutions for our complex
multiple layered operating systems platform, and provide prompt and
attentive service throughout the resolution path," said Curtis Birkmann,
CIO, Bank of Manhattan. "As a result of their efforts, the Bank of
Manhattan was able to restore key virtual servers in 30 percent less
time than leveraging our traditional offsite recovery process. Further,
Kroll Ontrack provided the Bank of Manhattan with complete images of key
virtual servers, at the exact time of hardware failure, rather than at
the time of last backup or snapshot. This approach allowed us to recover
multiple integrated servers at the exact point of failure."
"The value and resources we place on developing tools and capabilities
to address new and difficult challenges are where Kroll Ontrack shines,"
said Todd Johnson (News - Alert), vice president of operations, Kroll Ontrack. "As a
result of our efforts, we are achieving great success with the latest
enterprise recovery challenges to ensure our corporate clients are back
up and functioning just as they were before the data loss."
