Data loss due to disk drive failure and time loss for recovery are major problems for businesses and organizations. Disk drive failures can also lead to higher costs associated with data recovery and RAID rebuilds. However, with the use of ULINK DA Drive Analyzer, a cutting-edge AI disk failure prediction tool, these problems can now be mitigated.

Features and Benefits

DA Drive Analyzer is the first AI disk failure prediction tool designed for the general market. Utilizing modern computing technology, AI, and machine learning, DA is able to address the problem of disk drive failure. The AI model is trained on data from millions of disk drives over the past 2-3 years, enabling it to detect and analyze patterns and symptoms of failure. This allows DA Drive Analyzer to make predictions about disk drive failure before it occurs, which can save businesses and organizations a significant amount of time and money.

DA Drive Analyzer is a web-based service that is available for home and business users. It allows users to monitor their disk drives from an easy-to-use web portal. The web portal shows the risk of disk drive failure, the state of disk drives, and the operating condition of disk drives. Users can also receive email alerts for impending failures and abnormal operating conditions. Additionally, users can receive a weekly report that indicates the state of all the drives in their systems.

Industry Recognition

DA Drive Analyzer was launched at the end of 2021 in partnership with QNAP® Systems, Inc., a leading computing, and storage solutions innovator. Overall, DA is a powerful tool that can help organizations prevent data loss and time loss due to data recovery.
