Cloud Profit Making

No one wants to pay more for anything than they have to, especially e-discovery. Here are some cost saving tips to consider.

1. Size Matters: The size of your data set affects three different costs. First, when processing data, vendors usually charge one price for importing data into the processing tool (the “in” charge) and another, higher price for the data exported from the tool (the “out” charge).

The “in” charge usually includes de-duplication, de-NISTing, date and search term filtering and is based on the uncompressed gigabyte (“GB”) size. If you collect a pst in a zip file that is 5 GB compressed, the vendor will extract the pst from the zip file, thereby uncompressing it. This can greatly increase, even double or triple, your gigabyte size and therefore, your cost. So, it is important to consider the uncompressed size for budgeting purposes.
