Keep Your Data Secure

Keep your Data Secure with a RAID NAS System

 These days’ companies and consumers seem to be ditching on-site backup systems in favor of “the cloud.” The benefits of cloud storage are obvious, but there’s a way to get the convenience of both cloud storage and local backups without giving the keys to the castle away to a potentially crooked third-party vendor.

What I'm talking about is a technology called a Redundant Array of Independent Disks Network Attached Storage (or RAID NAS for short) and there is a plethora of reasons why you may want to start using it for your own storage needs soon.

Redundant array of independent disks isn’t a new concept. They've been used by various types of enterprises for decades to back up their important data. A RAID is simply a configuration of hard drives that uses techniques such as striping, mirroring, and parity to create a way for people to backup massive amounts of data quickly and conveniently. The NAS portion of the name lets us know that the RAID array is connected to a network.

Storage space is one major advantage of RAID NAS. Most PC's don't have terabytes of storage at their disposal. However, the storage limit of even entry level RAID NAS systems is massive. They also allow for the ease of access you would expect from a cloud storage service. On a NAS, any PC connected to the network can access files as needed, rather than having to transfer files from one PC to another with a flash drive or email.

RAID NAS systems also allow for the ease of access you would expect from a cloud storage service. This is where the NAD portion of RAID NAS comes in. On an NAS, any PC connected to the network can access files as needed, rather than having to transfer files from one PC to another with a flash drive or email.

RAID NAS systems are also extremely reliable. It isn't uncommon for hard drives to die, it's the nature of the technology. But with the right RAID configuration, data can be rescued even if one of the disks bites the dust.

Then there's the issue of security. With a cloud storage service, you're trusting all your precious data with someone outside of your own enterprise. Even if your service provider is trustworthy, there's still a possibility that your data may get hacked from your provider’s servers. None of these things are an issue with RAID NAS, since your files will be stored safely in whatever location you chose. You can even decide to include data encryption for an added level of security.

Please, feel free to contact us if you have any more questions.

Client Reviews

“Carolina Data Recovery saved the day! I had an external hard drive that contained all of my personal information and pictures over the last 3 years. This hard drive had crashed leaving me in a world of panic. Carolina Data Recovery specialists were able to fully recover my lost information, keeping me updated throughout the entire process. I highly recommend Carolina Data Recovery for all your data needs! ”
– J. Hawk
“Carolina Data Recovery is terrific. We lost a RAID 5 array with critical data and we needed to recover it quickly. We spoke with 3 different venders, and Ron made a big impression over the phone. We did not regret our choice. He worked with us on shipping and priority, and within three days of placing that call we had our data back in 3 days.. HIGHLY recommended. .”
– Jim B.
“The short: Calling Ron and his team was the best decision I could have made. Words like kind, respectful, prompt, and attentive come to mind. The long: My NAS crashed. I thought I lost my entire digital life. Forget about the files and documents one accumulates and all the music, I had 30 years of family pictures, some of who are no longer with us. I was in tears. I took my NAS to a big box store where I was given very robotic service by their "geeks" and was told it could cost me thousands of dollars, it would take at least a month (but I could leap to the front of the line for an extra $100) to even find out IF it was recoverable. I decided to look for someone local and thank God I found Carolina Data Recovery. Ron was able to confirm that the data was recoverable within 48 hours and had my data back to me within 72 hours. Beyond that, Ron took time to walk me though the process and listen to my concerns. Realizing I was a mess, Ron spent an hour on the phone with me explaining what I need to do going forward to ensure that this never happens again. Backing up your data IS important - hard lesson learned. I hope to never be in this situation again, but have comfort in knowing that Carolina Data Recovery has my back. ”
– M. Patel
“We had a hard drive failure at work, and we didn't have a backup. We went to Ron for a free analysis and he verified there was an issue within 15 minutes. We've never had to deal with data recovery before, and he was willing to answer any questions. He got our data restored to a new drive within 2 days. Would definitely recommend.”
– Seth Allen
“I thought I had lost the last 15 years of my life in pictures, but they were able to recover them! Such a relief! Worth every penny!”
– Shannon M.
“These guys/gals are really great. Ron was very professional and stayed in communication thru the entire process of our clients Data Recovery.”
– David P.
“Great company with fantastic service! My laptop was causing me terrible issues and I was terrified that all of the valuable data that was stored on it was gone forever. I went to several different companies for help with no solution to my problem. I finally found Carolina Data Recovery and they were able to recovery all of my data that I thought I had lost forever. Friendly staff and great recovery time. I highly recommend this company! ”
