Kroll Ontrack unveils data recovery solution for Netapp Systems

Minneapolis – July 21, 2009 – Kroll Ontrack, the leading provider of data recovery and legal technologies products and services, today announced the availability of a new technology to recover data from NetApp Storage Systems. Offering support for both hardware and software failures, Ontrack® Data Recovery specialists can now offer NetApp users a trusted and viable option to address data loss for the Data ONTAP® platform.

Popular among enterprises as a SAN or NAS storage solution, NetApp ONTAP (WAFL) provides users with Snapshot technology, which creates automated, point-in-time backups. If snapshots are purged from the storage system before the creation of a more permanent backup, data loss can occur. Kroll Ontrack's newly developed technology allows for the recovery of these snapshots, which are no longer available to the NetApp storage system.

"With the development of our new proprietary technology, Ontrack Data Recovery engineers are essentially able to 'turn back the clock' on a NetApp FAS system and restore the data to its last Snapshot state," said Jeff Pederson, manager of Ontrack Data Recovery operations for Kroll Ontrack. "These capabilities are particularly valuable when there are gaps between snapshots and backups, including recovering data that was deleted before the backup occurred. With Kroll Ontrack, customers can efficiently and effectively retrieve critical enterprise data and avoid permanent data loss or the need for data recreation."

In addition to Ontrack Data Recovery's software solution for Snapshot technology, the company also offers a hardware solution beyond NetApp's RAID-DP safeguard. While RAID-DP allows for the failure of two disks in a system, Kroll Ontrack provides an additional layer of protection when more than two drives fail and before a rebuild occurs.
