The Cloud' has become


Ontrack has seen multiple samples of customers that come to us because their cloud providers have turned them away in data loss situations.

'The Cloud' has become synonymous with almost any service/server that's not maintained on-premises in your organisation. the benefits of cloud solutions are many - reduced infrastructure costs, simple growth and providing a uniform experience for local and remote users. But none of those factors make the cloud exempt from data loss.




Data loss within the cloud is typically the results of a person's error - data stores or volumes are accidentally deleted; database tables are dropped or virtual systems are moved/deleted. Furthermore, cloud data storage remains vulnerable to viruses, hacking and other security issues and at the top of the day, cloud computing doesn't suggest that the underlying engine is exempt from failure.

Regardless of the cause, if you've got experienced any sort of data loss within the cloud then contact Ontrack today for a free data recovery consultation and quote.



All Platforms, All Data Loss Situations and every one Data Recovery Solutions
It's clear that cloud computing is quickly gaining ground among organisations looking to streamline their technology infrastructure and cut information technology costs. Cloud Computing has become increasingly popular n recent years, especially since many IT experts hold the opinion that storing information within the cloud is that the way forward for managing and processing large amounts of knowledge . However, not all clouds are 'created equal' and infrequently data loss does occur.

Ontrack has the experience and propriety technology required to recover your data from cloud services. we've recovered data for patrons with cloud service platforms at every level - from small development project cloud users to secondary infrastructure deployments, and even nationwide smartphone data servers supporting many mobile users.

This table shows some current cloud services, common data loss scenarios and Ontrack Data Recovery Solutions.

Cloud Platform
Data Loss Situation
Data Recovery Solution
Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS)
Logical volume overwrite
Overwritten data files
Deleted files
Deleted partition or deleted logical volume
Accidental volume reformat
Snapshot management corruption
IaaS uses virtualisation technology to supply this service. The Remote Data Recovery service is that the best solution for IaaS cloud platform thanks to speed and ease.
Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
Dropped database
Dropped tables
Deleted row data
System table corruption
Corrupt database file
Ontrack uses proprietary recovery applications to seek out and repair specific file data types. Remote Data Recovery service is that the fastest thanks to retrieve your data. Access to your SaaS database file are going to be required.
Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)
Deleted partition or deleted logical volume
Accidental volume reformat
Snapshot management corruption
PaaS system risks are data loss to the storage volumes that structure the platform you're using. The Remote Data Recovery service is that the fastest thanks to retrieve your data.

Accidental volume reformat
Snapshot management corruption
Ontrack has recovered data from many cloud storage providers whose clients didn't have any backup redundancy. When Ontrack is contacted immediately, nearly 100% of the requested files are recovered.

Cloud Data Recovery Process
The recovery process for data within the cloud may be a three-stage process. A successful recovery of cloud data requires remote access through your administrator account and verification of the memory device or system and therefore the filing system that contains the requested data.

Data Recovery Process
Description
Stage 1 Target LUN (SAN or NAS), iSCSI*LUN, or virtual disk is identified.
Stage 2 Remote recovery services client is installed on virtual or physical computer with target LUN, iSCSI LUN, or virtual computer file access. within the case of virtual disk files, there may have to be extra storage available for data extraction; enough for the recovered data.
Stage 3 Volume filing system indices are checked for meta-data-to-data stream integrity. within the case of SaaS database recoveries, the database file will got to be accessible from the remote services client computer. Local access to the database file is suggested for speed.
Stage 4 Listings of all recoverable files are completed. A database listing of all recoverable tables and rows is completed.
*iSCSI LUNs are reliant upon the SAN's internal filing system to manage the info . Data loss within this sort of logical storage may require access to the SAN's volume where the iSCSI files are stored. **Targe volumes that reside within virtual disk files are dependent upon the hypervisor's datastore filing system to manage the info . Data loss at the hypervisor volume level or within the guest's virtual computer file may require additional engineering effort to finish the evaluation.
