  • Email classification, search and discovery for FRCP litigation
    The updates to the FRCP certainly aren't anything ground breaking; they are all sensible additions, many already enshrined in other, more legally demanding requirements. The main difference is that doing something about discovery and classification becomes relevant to more organizations than was previously the case.

  • New e-discovery rules will change document management
    Every organization now needs to set up a policy on what electronic documents need to be preserved and what needs to be destroyed and why and when. As long as the rules are consistent and not event-based, it will put organizations at lesser risk to meet the new FRCP laws on e-discovery.

  • Data protection and archiving challenges in face of new FRCP rules
    The December 2006 changes to the FRCP regulations and their impact on data storage bring new challenges and opportunities involving data storage and electronic record and document management. Unlike popular regulations, including Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), SEC regulation 17, FDA 21 CFR part 11 and HIPAA that may only impact certain business, FRCP, while not a regulation, has a much broader impact on those who may be involved in future litigation matters.

  • Disk drives for data archiving
    VARs have many opportunities to support data archiving for regulatory compliance, new FRCP and document management, among other applications. In addition to data preservation, archiving is a great way to improve overall system performance by removing seldom used data -- so you can free up storage capacity and the I/O resources needed to back up and manage data. Consequently, byproducts of archiving include performance boosts for data backups, replication and mirroring, and improved day-to-day activity.

  • Archiving, backup and EDD hot technologies for storage VARs
