BlueArc Joins the Index Engines Litigation Ready™ Partner Program to Deliver Fast and Economical Data Search and Legal Discovery
HOLMDEL, N.J. & SAN JOSE, Calif.–LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – Index Engines, a leader in enterprise discovery solutions, today announced that it has partnered with BlueArc® Corporation, a leader in scalable, high-performance network storage to develop an optimized version of the Index Engines LAN engine to support BlueArc’s high performance Titan 2000 unified network storage systems for fast, economical search and discovery of unstructured online data. The new Index Engines/BlueArc solution was developed as part of BlueArc’s participation in the Index Engines Litigation Ready™ Partner Program. The resulting product reduces overall eDiscovery costs and turnaround time while giving companies the dynamic interaction with data that enables them to perform on-demand decision making for legal and regulatory compliance.
“Corporate data stores can have many terabytes of key corporate records stored as emails, files and other forms of unstructured data. Many companies are facing extraordinary costs as they attempt to search these files for data in support of litigation,” said Neil Colstad, vice president of business development, Index Engines. “Compounding the high cost of compliance and electronic discovery are the legal and administrative risks faced by enterprise data managers and electronic discovery processors when responsive documents are not produced when required. By combining the Index Engines LAN engine with BlueArc’s Titan 2000 unified network storage systems, we can significantly reduce this risk and lower cost all while speeding the discovery process.”
“BlueArc has been adopted as the centralized storage solution powering our partner electronic discovery firms storage needs, and enabling a dynamic scalable storage environment while increasing the number of files processed per hour,” said Steve Daheb, senior vice president of marketing and business development, BlueArc. “Today’s corporate data is distributed throughout the enterprise in multiple formats and locations – from servers, data centers, desktops and laptops to archives and offline tapes. The Index Engines solution, when paired with our high-performance Titan 2000 unified network storage systems offers customers high speed access to their distributed data so they can swiftly and more cost-effectively meet their compliance and discovery requirements.”
The combined solution from Index Engines and BlueArc provides a cost effective and comprehensive electronic discovery solution. This plug-and-play appliance transparently integrates into existing networks and BlueArc storage infrastructures, to perform content and metadata indexing on electronic records. Key features of the new solution include:
Full Content Indexing: The Index Engines LAN Engine performs content indexing of BlueArc Titan data via NDMP to enable on-demand analysis and discovery without crawling.
Fast File Access: BlueArc’s Titan 2000 unified network storage systems provide fast access to files for electronic discovery data collection and processing.
