Big data is complex because of the various types of data it encompasses. It includes structured data, such as transactions companies make and store, as well as unstructured data, such as multimedia presentations, text conversations and video streams.
Looking to manage its big data requirements, Paragon Legal Technology Support, which offers law firms and corporations state-of-the-art litigation support services, replaced its NetApp storage environment with EMC (News - Alert) Isilon scale-out storage, the company has announced.
EMC Isilon has allowed Paragon to improve the speed of collection of forensic evidence and streamline the company's e-discovery projects. It has also offered Paragon the credentials it needed to quickly grow its expanding cloud-based business.
It provides other benefits such as rapid ROI and simplified administration as well.
The EMC Isilon OneFS operating system offers the basis for all Isilon scale-out storage systems. It brings together the three layers of conventional storage architectures: filesystem, volume manager and data protection, into one unified software layer.
“Our clients often require us to filter through massive volumes of Big Data that might span 5,000 documents and millions of pages just to find one or two documents of evidence that determine the success of a case,” stated Paul Cowley, CEO and cofounder, Paragon Legal Technology Support. “Isilon's speed and reliability enable us to respond to practically any request, which provides a competitive advantage that has helped drive millions of dollars in new revenue.”
Recently, the company extended its virtual data center management features to include root-cause and impact analysis for all VMware vSphere attached storage. This will be done with the help of new and improved integrations with VMware vCenter Server and the EMC Storage Resource Management (SRM) Suite.
Through the discovery of wireless controllers and the monitoring of wireless access points, the new capability will offer root-cause and impact analysis for wireless networks.
