RenewData Develops Processing

AUSTIN, Texas -- RenewData, a leading provider of e-discovery and electronically stored information risk management (ESIRM) services, today announced it has developed a “single-pass” technology for processing backup tapes to better support its clients for discovery and risk management of ESI. The patent-pending “single-pass” backup tape processing technology allows files that have been segmented across more than one backup tape to be read as a whole without having to process each tape in their original sequence or read tapes more than once. It also allows processing of orphan tapes that may have originally been part of a sequence of tapes that no longer exist.

In recent years, the need for corporations to gain more visibility into their tape libraries has increased, as has the volume of tapes that ultimately need to be processed in the wake of discovery orders. This growing need is apparent, considering RenewData has witnessed a 300% increase in the number of backup tapes processed at their facility since 2004. “With the heightened need to identify information on backup tapes through the discovery process quickly, we see the need to process increasingly larger volumes of backup tapes to continue,” said Vivian Tero, Research Manager, Compliance Infrastructure, IDC. “Renew Data’s ‘single-pass’ processing technology is intended to address a need among corporations to turn around massive volumes of tape data quickly and efficiently, thus enhancing their ability to meet the eDiscovery deadlines.”
