Reldata Complements EMC

Reldata announced that doeLegal has chosen Reldata's 9240 Unified Storage Gateway appliance

PARSIPPANY, N.J. -- RELDATA, the leader of a new generation of unified storage systems, announced today that doeLegal, LLC, of Wilmington, DE, has chosen RELDATAs 9240 Unified Storage Gateway appliance, combined with Infortrend RAID 6 arrays, to effectively extend its EMC® storage.

EMC® NAS storage was the first to be implemented by doeLegal. The company rapidly reached a point where they needed greater storage capacity and scalability. “We have about a billion customer files, and it’s growing rapidly. In our world of large NAS storage, iSCSI connections, replication and rapid data growth, we needed to find a cost effective solution,” says Chalkley Matlack, senior network engineer.

doeLegal enlisted the help of Vienna, Virginia-based Selenetix, a storage and security solutions reseller focused on business continuity and disaster recovery since 1995. Selenetix recommended a RELDATA 9240 storage gateway to doeLegal.

doeLegal operates in fourteen countries across most continents and manages complex collaborative litigations by hosting applications for more than one-third of the firms comprising the Am Law 100. doeLegal is a leader in hosting sensitive legal data and continually sharpens its abilities to secure data, protect privacy, and ensure high availability in its delivery of 24/7 case management, electronic litigation discovery, and billing and budgeting controls to its clients.

“The RELDATA solution could handle petabytes of storage, not just 16TB like the EMC® system, and it could do both active-active and active-passive failover,” says Matlack. “Cost of storage was substantially less with RELDATA. Configuration and deployment was simple and fast. It cut deployment time in half, and the cost was one-third less than EMC®.
