AUSTIN, Texas and HOLMDEL, N.J. -- RenewData, a leading provider of electronic evidence and data migrations services for corporations and law firms, and Index Engines, the leader in enterprise discovery solutions, today announced that RenewData has added the Index Engines Offline Tape Discovery technology to its suite of Data Migration Services. Offline Tape Discovery enables direct searching of documents stored on tape. When combined with RenewDatas legal expertise and processes, corporations can reduce the time and expense of analyzing their inventory of backup tapes to determine which tapes must be kept to address legal or regulatory requirements.
As a new Index Engines customer, RenewData has also joined the Index Engines Litigation Ready Partner Program to extend the offline tape e-discovery benefits of the Index Engines Enterprise Discovery Platform to its customers. With the addition of RenewData to the Index Engines network of Litigation Ready Partners, Index Engines now has the capacity to help customers perform information discovery on up to 14,000 backup tapes a month.
Corporations maintain tens of thousands of backup tapes. These inventories are significant sources of current and potential liability, as well as ongoing storage costs. Corporations often retain these tapes indefinitely because they cannot identify the contents of each tape. They need the ability to quickly and cost effectively analyze these large volumes of tapes, using a legally defensible process to determine which contain relevant content for legal or regulatory matters, and therefore must be kept for further processing, said Ellery Buchanan, CEO, RenewData. Index Engines advanced content and metadata indexing technology is an ideal addition to our existing data migration technology. By enhancing our data migration solution with Index Engines Enterprise Discovery Platform, we are able to help clients address the dormant liability residing in their backup tapes, as well as reduce the ongoing storage costs of these tapes.
