ACE Data Recovery Developed Solution to Extract Data from the Legacy HP Enterprise Virtual Arrays

Sponsored by Businesswire

ACE Data Recovery successfully completed a recovery case from a legacy HP
Enterprise Virtual Array (EVA)
Fibre Channel storage system. The HP
EVA 4100 family reached EOL support back in the 2014. This failed array
held procurement data for a big corporate identity uniform provider. ACE
guarantees the confidentiality and privacy of customer data, works under
NDA and never release clients’ names without their permission.

“The EVA RAID failed in January of 2018. Since that time, the client
looked for data recovery options,” said Don Wells, general manager of
ACE Data Recovery. “All attempts to recover data from RAID by our
competitors failed
. The client contacted ACE in February 2019 to
retrieve his data back.”

ACE Data Recovery’s R&D department has in-depth experience in unique
custom solution development for their clients. “The internal smart array
structures can significantly differ depending on model inside the same
family of storage systems,” said Fedir Bandurin, ACE RAID
engineer. “Third party recovery tools for HP EVA 6500 were
unable to extract data from HP EVA 4100 model. The Fibre Channel media
added extra complication to the case. HP provides great virtual arrays
redundancy. We discovered that array initially was created as an 8
drives RAID 5. After drives started failing one by one, all the data was
merged by the EVA controller to 4 drives degrading RAID 5
. Our team was able to develop a solution for this
particular case and extract 100% of required data from the raw drives,”
continued Bandurin. VMWARE’s vmdk files with the customer’s procurement
data archive were successfully recovered and returned to the client
after data verification process.

ACE Data Recovery has a great success rate in recovering data from
various legacy media, such as SAN, NAS, or directly attached server
arrays from HP, IBM, DELL-EMC
and others, regardless of the drives
interface and original file system. The company is also able to retrieve
data from tape archives in countless tape drives formats, including DLT,
LTO, DDS, Travan, etc.
