RAID 1

In this RAID configuration, your data will be replicated into two drives. This configuration answers the reliability and integrity question on data as it provides a solution to what most people seek by mirroring the data on two distinct physical disks or drives. The data will be written on the disks or drives simultaneously such that each storage location is a mirror location to the other. RAID 1 ensures that if one drive fails, data can be retrieved from the other storage location. Recovery data from RAID 1 drive is enhanced by the data duplication technique in the case of failure on the first storage drive. In such a scenario, RAID Recovery NYC will conduct recovery data from RAID 1 drive and ensure all your data is quickly recovered. The RAID recovery process is facilitated by the ability of the RAID controller in Drive 2 to respond to the host request for data from the surviving Drive 2. The fast read operations make RAID 1 implementation to be the best RAID configuration for instantaneous data recovery other than being easy to implement.

Drawbacks

  • Though it is efficient for reading operations, it is slower for write operations as data has to be rewritten on the second disk. Therefore, RAID 1 is applicable when a client prefers a fault-tolerance storage system to high-performance systems.
  • RAID 1 cannot be substituted with a backup service because if a file is corrupted or accidentally deleted from drive 1 by a bug or virus, it is instantly removed from both mirror copies. However, it is only when drive 1 fails and the entire data is lost that we can offer RAID recovery services.
  • RAID 1 configuration is also expensive as it requires a significant amount of storage space since for every data byte in disk 1, it must be duplicated to make another data copy. For instance, if the company wants to store data amounting to 200 Terabytes (TB), it must have storage space amounting to 400TB.

RAID recovery services are ideal for critical systems in:

– Large enterprises that dish out intense performance.
– Small enterprises that hold small servers for less performance.
