As most data recovery companies have seen, in 2009, data recovery business is growing very fast with many new companies, personals entering this field, we can see this fact from the sales increase of Data recovery tools manufacturers, data recovery services providers, Data recovery training centers, but In Africa, data recovery is still the services which prove very expensive and sound far reachable.
In Uganda, most people are still using data recovery software because few of them are able to afford to advanced data recovery equipment which is much more expensive. Most rely on internal systems and external providers who tend to restrict themselves to renting storage space. Data recovery services are suited to commercial banks, insurance companies, manufacturing entities, supermarkets and media houses. The initial costs of the disaster recovery service were considered so expensive thereby repelling many potential clients, the charges initially ranged from $2,000 to $4,000 per month, depending on the client’s needs, according to Computer Point Uganda Ltd’s managing director Anil Kuruvilla. The charges have now been revised to a minimum cost of $600 per month and a maximum fee of $1,200 for the same period in a bid to get more eligible clients including SMEs with small turnover and growing data management needs.
One problem in Uganda is about the connectivity. Poor connectivity affected many potential clients’ ability to tap into its full benefits. Minimum connectivity speed was 128 kbps which most clients felt was too low and unreliable. The alternative was 512kbps which most of the targeted clients found too expensive.
Recently, it’s said another company in Uganda, Amba Technologies Ltd, they are going to bring in data recovery tools from SalvationDATA Technology(One top data recovery tools manufacturer) and going to provide data recovery and HDD repair services in Uganda. AMBA will get full technique support from SalvationDATA, including free software upgrade, data recovery remote assistance and a good discount on the data recovery equipment.

From Fred of AMBA Technologies, we contacted Edison Hsiun, marketing manager of the European and African Dept. of SalvationDATA, he said African data recovery market will be the next big bread and data recovery Uganda will be more fair to all customers who want to find their data back or repair their storage medias.
