Kroll Ontrack is the only company with the expertise to recover data from Data ONTAP storage for NetApp systems.

Our capabilities

With pioneering research, our engineers have developed the expertise and proprietary tools to recover missing or corrupted data  from NetApp's highly scalable storage operating system.

Examples of what we can recover:

  • Deleted or Overwritten Files from WAFL or iSCSI volumes
  • Deleted or Corrupted Virtual Disks
  • Deleted Volumes
  • Deleted Aggregates
  • WAFL File System Corruption
  • Hard drives and RAID Failures

If you have any questions about our recovery capabilities, please give us a call to discuss your specific data loss situation.

Remote Data Recovery

Kroll Ontrack offers NetApp customers a quick and cost effective way to recover their data with Remote Data Recovery. Our engineers are able to recover data via a secure internet connection. No need to disassemble or ship equipment. This service is exclusive to Kroll Ontrack and cannot be found at any other company.

What NetApp products are recoverable?

We can recover from all enterprise and mid-tier products as well as entry-level NAS and SAN products.

Recovery methods

Data recovery for NetApp systems can be performed through Ontrack Data Recovery in-lab, remote and on-site services.  Kroll Ontrack engineers can quickly diagnose the data loss event, virtually rebuild the FAS or E-series environments, and recover the missing or corrupted data.

Logical recovery

NetApp FAS systems store data using Data ONTAP and a file system named WAFL (Write Anywhere File Layer). A noteworthy feature of the NetApp system is snapshot, which allows the user to go "back in time" to recover files without restoring a backup. Once snapshots are purged, the NetApp customer’s related ability to recover deleted files without restoring a full backup is lost.

This technology also makes it a great system for data recovery.  With our proprietary toolset, we can locate purged snapshots and internal checkpoints and "turn back the clock" on a NetApp FAS system to recover the data.   In addition to recovering individual files and virtual disks, Kroll Ontrack’s engineers can fully recover from failed RAID Groups, damaged or deleted aggregates or damaged or deleted flex, traditional and infinite volumes.

NetApp e-series systems use the SANtricity OS to manage the system.  Kroll Ontrack engineers use their proprietary tools to access the system at the sector level and recover deleted or corrupted data.

Hardware recovery

With 18 clean rooms world-wide, Kroll Ontrack can handle any hardware failures.  From fires to floods to non-functional HDDs and SSD, Kroll Ontrack engineers have the expertise, software and hardware needed to recover and image affected media.  Once we have an image of the media, we can use our tools to rebuild the system virtually (RAID Groups, Aggregates, Volumes) and recover the missing data.
