eDiscovery to the Cloud
Up, up and away! Moving eDiscovery to the Cloud.
We've optimized migrations to public clouds to ensure cost-effective, scalable solutions.
by Jordan McQuown
As predicted by Forbes, 83% of enterprise workloads will be in “the cloud” by year’s end 2020, comprised of 20% private cloud, 22% hybrid cloud, and 41% public cloud. In forecasting and preparing for this critical transition, George Jon has tested and optimized migrations of eDiscovery applications to public clouds to ensure a cost-effective, scalable, and performant solution that meets industry demands.
As the leading eDiscovery solutions engineering provider, we embraced the challenge of benchmarking leading applications, placed in cloud environments, against our 15 years of proven best practices in on-prem Kits. The results were a bit surprising, to say the least, with our major discovery being that forklift migrations (copying an entire platform and dropping it into a cloud environment), appealing due to low planning and testing requirements, ultimately result in costly, issue-ridden, painful experiences.
