Catalyst expands cloud-based e-discovery service
By Asia Cloud Forum staff 12-Jul-2011
Cloud-based e-discovery document repositories provider Catalyst Repository System opened its Asia data center housed in Equinix's International Business Exchange data center in Tokyo.
The data center expansion is expected to meet the needs of its growing base of legal clients in Tokyo and throughout the Asia Pacific.
Catalyst's web-based software and supporting services cover different stages of a litigation lifecycle -- from processing and search, to analytics, review, production and trial.
Delivered via a cloud infrastructure, Catalyst provides multi-lingual document repositories for e-discovery and litigation support. Specializing in multi-language search and review, Catalyst supports international law firms and multinational corporations in matters involving "JCK" (Japanese, Chinese and Korean) data.
('JCK data' refers to legal documents which are collected, processed and hosted using Catalyst’s platform.)
"Japan has strongest data protection laws in APAC"
As the amount of electronic information that needs to be accessed and maintained grows, many businesses are exploring new technologies to manage their complex litigation documentation needs.
To manage and process these high volumes of data, Catalyst's cloud-based document repositories leverage a flexible and scalable infrastructure for performance and security.
Explaining its dedicated data center deployment in Japan, Catalyst's Founder and CEO John Tredennick said: "Japan provides exceptional connectivity between Asia and North America and has the strongest data protection laws in Asia Pacific."
"Providing both high availability and physical security, Equinix's data center is the ideal location for our clients' data in Japan and throughout the region. Its global reach, coupled with bilingual support and local expertise, make our market expansion much easier."
