KUALA LUMPUR, 24 AUGUST 2010 -- The world's first eDiscovery SuperComputer has been launched for Malaysian businesses, according to technology firm Nuix.
"This solution will radically change the way companies manage their litigation and regulatory matters," said Nuix chief executive officer Eddie Sheehy.
"The Nuix eDiscovery SuperComputer is an out-of-the box enterprise-grade system which can be taken on-site to enable law firms, litigation support firms, corporations, government agencies and other organisations to undertake fast and powerful early case assessments on both the smallest and largest cases," said Sheehy.
"The highly advanced Nuix3 electronic discovery (eDiscovery) software with the latest in computer hardware offers the fastest processing engine by an order of magnitude-more than 2.5TB (terabytes) of data in a day, which is up to 50 times faster on average than competitors (and 2.5 times faster than Nuix's June speed benchmark)," he said.
"Other features include the ability to host up to 25 concurrent reviewers while simultaneously processing data at 100GB (gigabytes) per hour, as well as the ability to host more than 200 concurrent reviewers when not processing," said Sheehy, adding that the solution was intuitive and has a simple-to-use interface.
Nuix offers advanced enterprise-wide corporate investigation and eDiscovery software, which is used in more than 20 countries including in the European Union, the Asia Pacific and North America by organisations such as multinationals, government authorities, financial institutions, corporations, professional services firms, and national law enforcement agencies.
Sending sensitive data
"Most organisations involved in litigation and compliance matters are very sensitive about sending great volumes of data out for processing," said Sheehy. "The Nuix eDiscovery SuperComputer gives companies undertaking ECA the ability to scale up internally for virtually any size case and it can be done in a day, whether it is a 2GB or a 2TB case."
"One US-based client using a single Nuix eDiscovery SuperComputer was able to process 1.2 million Bloomberg emails in 43 minutes," he said. "The client had previously processed the same batch of e-mails using its old system across 23 servers, which took four days to achieve the same result."
