Cloud computing has levelled the playing field between large organizations and small law firms.
It is now possible for a firm of four attorneys to litigate with a multinational corporation represented by a mega-firm with an army of lawyers.
There is no question that there are many advantages to cloud computing eDiscovery applications.
However, there are situations where the data is highly sensitive, either by the nature of the information or security requirements, where an eDiscovery solution is required behind an organization’s firewall. This is when the data requires an eDiscovery Island and not a cloud.
Refers to an ambiguous location of data or documents and the review software that allows access to those documents. Although some cloud providers can apply geographic restrictions to the hosting, backup and access, most cloud providers use a network of computers around the world to optimize and scale.
Refers to the geographic and infrastructure location of the e-discovery servers that host the data and documents, and the review software used to access those documents. Many firms already have hardware running their accounting, docketing or file management internally within the office or at a leased data center location dedicated to that firm.
The Value of an eDiscovery Island
Just as top secret documents don’t belong in the basement of a beach house, there are some records too sensitive to be held in a cloud. In these cases, a locally installed solution or island can solve the security needs of highly sensitive data.
