Cisco dramatically reduces the cost of legal discovery through better data management.

Article Summary:

Cisco IT built a sophisticated e-discovery system to automate managing the huge volumes of data required for litigation in Cisco's Office of the General Counsel. Based on a Cisco MDS 9000 Series Multilayer Director Switch and a low-cost storage system, this virtual “network of networks” effectively linked the Office of the General Counsel to its consultants while reducing the costs of the expensive and complex discovery process.

This storage networking case study describes the architecture and benefits provided by Cisco’s e-discovery solution, including:

  • A common database of document review and productivity metrics
  • Multifirm collaboration without synchronization issues
  • The ability to add capacity cheaply and easily
  • Enhanced security
