Implementing eDiscovery in the cloud helps law firms or other organizations that practice eDiscovery address the growing complexity of virtualized data. At the same time, electronically-stored information must be governed to comply with certain laws and regulations that mandate ESI be preserved, highly available, and protected, even when lying dormant for extended periods. That can require substantial storage resources and costs.
Cloud Volumes ONTAP (CVO) gives eDiscovery and electronically-stored information more benefits in the cloud. By adding a feature-rich data management layer on top of cloud-native storage resources, ESI can easily be made highly durable and available with out-of-the-box data protection services. Cloud Volumes ONTAP allows data to be intelligently managed with reduced costs of the underlying cloud storage and storage efficiency features such as thin provisioning, deduplication, compression and data tiering.
With compression, compaction, thin provisioning and deduplications, Cloud Volumes ONTAP ensures smaller ESI footprint as well automated storage tiering of dormant ESI to cheaper object storage.
