Full Biography

programming for 30 years in most languages, and operating systems.  20+ years in UNIX, extensive experience in ATA/SATA, SCSI, SAS, FC, RAID, embedded, USB, multi-platform, pass-through SCSI, and most RAID controller APIs.  Expert in metadata reconstruction of RAID; storage-related security/hacking/cracking; storage-related protocols.  Author of numerous RAID configurators;  S.M.A.R.T. predictive failure software; storage diagnostic software.  I write a heck of a lot of SAN/NAS appliance middleware, diagnostics, and code for SSDs.

You can hire me for $100-$250/hr depending on what you need. RAID data recovery will cost you more.   If you are a worthwhile charity and are in a bind, I've been known to help for free.  If the issue is appropriate for EE, then keep it on EE.  If it is sensitive nature and/or the type of thing that needs hands-on, or is outside the scope of EE, then that is the time to take it offline.
