The use of cloud nearline storage for data archival may look attractive at first glance. Watch out for hidden costs – and the impact it all could have when faced with an eDisclosure notice.

In this whitepaper, Quocirca focuses on these Key Points:

  • Public clouds are offering deep data storage at cents per gigabyte. While this may be a great financial draw at first glance, there are many hidden costs with many cloud offerings that make it very hard to exactly what the costs of recovering required data would actually be.
  • When combined with poorly implemented means of identifying files and records that are actually required, the costs of eDiscovery can be so expensive as to have a severe impact on a business' bottom line.
  • Using an online object storage platform using global namespaces can provide full data protection, high availability and easily managed eDiscovery in a way that fully supports the business.
