Time is the enemy when a data loss occurs in cloud storage, especially in a multi-tenant environment.
To increase the success of any cloud recovery, stop writing to the affected volume and contact a data recovery professional with experience in cloud recovery immediately.

||Data Loss Situation
Data recovery process for cloud.
A successful recovery of cloud data requires remote access through your administrator account and verification of the storage device or system and the file system that contains the requested data.
Data Recovery Steps
Target LUN, iSCSI* LUN identification and low-level RAID verification at the storage block level.
Datastore volume file system indices are checked for meta-data-to-data stream integrity.**
Guest file system and contents are verified.
File listing of all recoverable data is completed.
* iSCSI LUNs are reliant upon the SAN's internal file system to manage the data. Data loss within this type of logical storage may require access to the SAN's volume where the iSCSI files are stored.
** Target volumes that reside within virtual disk files are dependent upon the hypervisor's datastore file system to manage the data. Data loss at the hypervisor volume level or within the guest's virtual disk file may require additional engineering effort to complete the evaluation.
Recovery solutions for the cloud.
In-Lab or Cleanroom
Cloud storage providers can experience hardware failures just like any other data storage provider. If the hardware has been physically damaged or suffered a mechanical failure, an in-lab or cleanroom recovery may be required.
Remote Data Recovery
Remote Data Recovery is the best option for cloud recovery due to the speed of the recovery process. It is the fastest was to access and recover your data. This cloud recovery is completed via a secure internet connection using proprietary tools. This method is not only quick, but cost-effective as well.
If the hardware at the cloud storage provider has failed and cannot be moved off-site due to it's physical size or security reasons, an onsite recovery is required. Our engineers are able to recover data onsite and, in most cases, complete the recovery within 48 hours of their arrival.
