Intelligent Drive Recovery (IDR)
Smarter RAID 6 drive clone/replace, data recovery, and media scan
Infortrend IDR offers superior RAID protection and recovery compared to generic RAID, increasing integrity and system efficiency while keeping your data secure against errors and loss.
Working best in RAID 6, IDR uses spare drives to recreate data. Intelligent clone and replace prevents data loss by automatically recovering affected media. IDR clones faulty drives and is capable of specifically recovering bad sectors or blocks as needed. It automatically relocates potentially problematic data to readable sectors and blocks in the background without user intervention, providing a vital tool for pre-empting drive failure and preventing data issues.
Together with HDD S.M.A.R.T (self monitoring, analysis, and reporting technology), IDR offers smart media scan, which catches errors before they become a problem. Smart media scan takes into account I/O demand, suspending and resuming to avoid performance degradation. Media scan can also be scheduled manually or set to automatic mode.
