Sometimes we forget that until only a few years ago, document discovery for litigation purposes was strictly in the paper domain and controlled by lawyers, law clerks, judges and other non-IT folks. Not so anymore as software and services have moved in to change the legal profession. Now that documents are being created, more information needs secure storage. As a result, enterprises are finding that responding to discovery and regulatory requests in U.S. legal matters is getting more complicated. Because of the huge volumes of data, many corporations have moved their e-discovery efforts to the cloud for a number of reasons. Big data storage is also becoming a concern as the sheer amount of business information continues to multiply in storage arrays—whether they are on or off premises. All in all, there are now many more options for this type of system, and the cloud is a channel many enterprises are now considering.
