U.S. GENERAL SERVICES & ADMINISTRATION 

Identify and correct a data recovery problem with a key system.

THE BUSINESS NEED

Design and implementation of a comprehensive data recovery plan.

THE SPI SOLUTION

Identified and restored a corrupt file system and acquired additional storage space.

OVERVIEW OF THE PROJECT

The client had an accounts receivable system running on a UNIX operating system. This system was running on an Intel 33 MHz PC with a line printer and a 1/2-inch mainframe style tape drive unit. There was no room to expand disk capacity. As a result, vital data was lost and could not be restored even by the original developers.

SPI quickly determined that the problem caused by a corrupt file system and restored it creating additional space and production resumed.

Adding additional disks via a new SCSI interface was also recommended and approved by the client.
