Data Backup and Restore
Premier archiving and restoration
Secure your data and databasing
Data loss is the worst-case scenario for many editors and engineers in creative and non-creative fields alike. Restoring lost data is an incredibly delicate process. From determining the initial cause of the data loss to the repair or recovery, takes many steps, and is a highly detailed process. Small Tree has extensive experience recovering data on very large systems throughout many industries, and if the inevitable happens, our team will be here to work with you throughout the entire process, as well as create safeguards along the rebuild process to help prevent further data loss.
If it is determined that data loss has occurred, the first goal of Small Tree is to create a strategic overview of the entire situation. What is the scale of the data loss, how much equipment is affected, how far does the corrupted data span, and were there checkpoints made before the initial loss? These important steps are used by Small Tree to make sure that we can implement an effective recovery procedure. Data recovery can get expensive, so determining the best route to recovery Small Tree can save your team time, energy, and stress.

Preventing data loss - Fighting the unforeseeable.
Data loss is something that nearly every computer or industry professional will experience in their career. Losing important assets or access to projects is the biggest fear for most creative minds as they go through their daily tasks. Furthermore, the restoration process for lost data is expensive and extensive. Depending on the size and scale of the restoration project, recovery could take months or longer. This is where STS Labs can improve not only the infrastructure behind your data but also set up checkpoints and workflows to prevent data loss and prepare for restoration if the worst does happen.
Automated Shared Workflow
Sometimes a RAID Recovery will not work with the current setup of your shared storage environment. Other operations can be done to ensure that the data is recovered. Another approach that STS Labs can take is a compressed and incremental restoration process. In this restoration method, STS Labs will be able to take sections of compressed data, decompress and incrementally restore your data. Although, please note that these compression and increments need to be set up before the point that data loss happens.
The most important step after the recovery of the data is to rebuild the environment with the repaired data. This process is as detailed and vital as the recovery process, because of the many variables in rebuilding a system. This rebuild is one of the best times to implement additional backup checkpoints and increase the durability of the data. STS Labs can rebuild a custom system with additional RAID controllers, or additional compression and incremental storage options inside the system. This will allow you and your team to retrieve your data, on a new system, with extended security and data retention in the event of another drive failure.
