RAID Failure

RAID failure

As in every major system, RAID-based systems are affected by the human factor. Storage technicians seldom have the expertise necessary to handle RAID disks when the medium degrades or even when the first failure occurs. When a failed disk in a RAID storage system is not replaced on time, the data stored on the entire storage system is vulnerable to further damage.

Why do RAID systems fail?

RAID-based systems fail quite often due to various reasons:

  • RAID disks are used intensively, and gradually degrade. They are more susceptible to damage from caused by heat and mechanical failure.
  • Over-dependency on the ability to recover from failure, while neglecting to account for the number of consecutive failures and the time interval between failures.
  • RAID disks are usually purchased together and come from the same production line, thus and therefore suffering from similar flaws. This increases the chance for near-simultaneous multiple disk failure.
  • When a hardware-based RAID controller fails, the retrieval and possibly recovery of the data requires a compatible controller to be used.
  • A RAID recovery technician/administrator is required to notice the RAID failure and then manually replace the failed disk before a second failure occurs.
  • Finally, RAID does not protect from data from file deletion, intentional damage, or viral damage caused by viruses or malicious code.

What can I do when my RAID system fails?
