EMC Clariion Data Recovery
Clariion was an entry to mid-level SAN series produced by EMC. Although the VNX series has now replaced the EMC Clariion models, they still play a vital part of many network and storage infrastructures. Even though they are known to be very reliable, we have over the years assisted countless clients with the recovery of data form both AX and CX series.
Recoveries form EMC SANs face multiple challenges and at its core are the proprietary nature of EMC arrays raid algorithms, unique file system and storage block assignments. In addition the CX4 and AX4 and AX5 storage arrays can be configured with Enterprise Flash Drives (EFD), Fibre Channel (FC), Serial Attached SCSI (SAS) and Serial ATA (SATA).
Additional unique aspects are that these arrays do not use standard disk sector formatting. They use what is referred to as the Magic 8 bytes, which produces a 520 byte sector format, which includes 8 bytes of metadata in addition to the 512 bytes of traditional data. These additional bytes include a linear check sum, write stamp, parity shed stamp and time stamp.
