DriveSavers Equipped to Recover New Apple Fusion Drive

R &D team created test environment to prove Fusion Drive is recoverable if failure occurs 

NOVATO, CA – NOVEMBER 16 2012 DriveSavers Data Recovery, the worldwide leader in data recovery services, announced today the company now offers data recovery services for Apple’s new Fusion Drive. In October, Apple unveiled the Fusion Drive as a new storage option for Mac mini and iMac computers, along with Macs running MacOS 10.8.2 to combine the performance of solid-state storage with the higher capacity of a hard drive. DriveSavers engineers tested the drive and developed new proprietary methods and techniques to recover data specifically for the new hybrid storage solution should an unthinkable failure occur.

“Recovering data from the Fusion Drive is not for the weak at heart,” said Chris Bross, strategic technology alliance manager. “It’s a complex storage solution that combines two completely different technologies to give Apple customers more speed with higher capacity. Our years of experience working with Apple products, Flash technology and leading storage manufacturers gives us the edge to innovate and quickly overcome the data recovery challenges associated with the Fusion Drive.”

DriveSavers engineers dissected the Fusion Drive to fully understand the mechanics and technology behind the hybrid solution. The Fusion Drive consists of two separate drives—one hard drive and one solid-state drive—that are “fused” together. If one drive fails, the data on both drives is lost. But not forever, DriveSavers built a test environment and was able to prove that data may be recovered from a failed Fusion Drive.

“We couldn’t wait to get our hands on the Fusion Drive,” said Mike Cobb, director of engineering at DriveSavers Data Recovery. “The integration of solid-state technology with a hard drive is a new approach to storing data at the consumer level so we were excited to see how it worked. The Fusion Drive is complicated but we can successfully recover data from it quickly in our certified secure environment.”

With over 27 years of experience recovering data for Apple products, DriveSavers data recovery engineers are able 24/7 to recover data from iPads, iPhones, iMacs and Mac mini computers and any other Apple product that has suffered common or catastrophic data loss for any reason.
