Discovery Software: Cloud Data Services Part 2


As I mentioned in previous posts, the user could get into a situation where they have massive amounts of data “in the cloud” and then they have to search it to discover if their data has certain attributes that are relevant to a legal or regulatory matter.  If the data size approaches the Petabyte range of magnitude, and the user has no way of searching the data that is in the cloud at the service location, or the user has no local “manifest”  or index of what they “put away” in the cloud then they have a huge problem on their hands. Pulling all that data down merely to review or index it for search would take Petabytes of storage and months of effort to accomplish.

Cloud Data Services and The Day of Reckoning


Sorry to start the year off with such an ominous title, but one thing I like to think about is how cloud services will change our way of life. They will initially change it for the better but once customers begin using high-volume data services in the cloud they will realize that there are parts of the service they may find missing or incomplete for some aspects of their business. Users may find that they need a “historical record” of their content should an ediscovery event occur in their life.

Intelligent file management services in 2011 and 2010 Year in Review



It is the end of 2010 and the start of a new year. It is always kind of good to reflect on the year that was and the year that will be. This posting attempts to do just that and to provide some insights into the next year.

Early Case Assessment and Emerging Trends in E-Discovery


Last week I talked about how the adoption of Cloud Services is being slowed somewhat by the lack of a certain component. The analogy I drew for the missing component was a device that performed the functions that a cable box does for your home entertainment system: identification, security, access control and bandwidth mitigation plus billing monitoring and management services. The cable box is a component that sits at your home and “hooks you up” to the cable and internet service in “the cloud”. For data management and electronic discovery I would like to explain how we at Digital Reef are beginning to participate in these kinds of cloud “on-ramp” services for our ediscovery customers.
