Kroll Ontrack announces data recovery breakthrough for Apple Xsan

Minneapolis – June 16, 2009 – Kroll Ontrack® the leading provider of Ontrack® Data Recovery solutions and legal technologies products and services, today announced data recovery capabilities for Apple Inc.'s Xsan® 2 clustered file system for Mac OS X. Utilizing newly developed proprietary technology, Ontrack Data Recovery specialists can now recover data from an Xsan server that has encountered a volume corruption.

"Prior to this development, Xsan file system data recovery was mostly limited to hardware-based failures. Enterprises that rely on the Xsan file system would often have no other course of action other than to reinitialize these very valuable and expensive servers when volume corruption occurred making their data inaccessible," said Jeff Pederson, manager of Ontrack Data Recovery operations for Kroll Ontrack. "With the innovative development of Kroll Ontrack's Xsan server specific data recovery capabilities, corporations have a viable alternative for their data protection needs. Utilizing our global, world-class engineers, Xsan server recoveries are feasible in a matter of a couple business days."

In addition to highly advanced data recovery solutions, Kroll Ontrack is dedicated to providing secure and reliable service throughout the entire data recovery process. The company offers around-the-clock customer service in 14 languages. Furthermore, real-time tracking of job progress is available through Ontrack Online and Ontrack® VeriFile reports, which allows customers to view the condition of all their recoverable files before deciding to proceed with the data recovery service.

Dedicated to continuous research and development, this is Kroll Ontrack's third Apple-specific data recovery breakthrough in three months. Specifically, in late April 2009, Kroll Ontrack announced an enhanced suite of data recovery technology for both MacMail and Microsoft® Entourage® e-mail.

"As Mac computers grow in popularity, so does the need for data recovery for these systems," added Pederson. "At Kroll Ontrack, we are committed to continually evolving our technology and skills to be on the cutting edge of our customers' needs."
