New “Look & Learn” Service Dramatically Lowers Processing Costs, Making Tape Discovery Decisions Easy and Affordable

HOLMDEL, N.J. Jan 31, 2011 –/– Index Engines, a leader in enterprise discovery, today announced a new cloud-based tape load service that will provide full identification and access to tape data for eDiscovery. The Look & Learn service, starting at $50 per tape, will provide clients with full access to the index of their tape data without the need to install any hardware or software. Customers will be able to search the index and gather knowledge about content, custodians, email and metadata all via cloud access to the Index Engines interface.

“The backup tape ‘onerous and burdensome’ argument is rapidly going the way of the dinosaur. Index Engines’ tape indexing and extraction services give us streamlined access, with unprecedented cost savings, to backup tape data so that we can proactively address the litigation discovery needs of our clients,” said Richard Davis, CEO at Litigation Logistics. “Index Engines’ cloud-based solution provides visibility into backup tape data on convenient and scalable hosting environments making backup tape discovery an even more reliable and economical source for the collection of unadulterated ESI than ever before.”

“The new cloud-based discovery service provides full access to Index Engines technology without any hardware or software requirements,” stated Jim McGann, vice president of Information Discovery at Index Engines. “This virtual discovery option provides unprecedented access to backup tape data, making tape discovery convenient and affordable.”

Look & Learn allows clients to have a full understanding of the content on their tapes. Beyond a simple file listing, this access allows full content query to provide a true picture of what the tapes contain. After the tape content has been thoroughly examined, Index Engines flexible service options include:

* Full Extraction: Index Engines will deliver the full tape content, extracted, de-duped and de-NISTed, to the client in its native format.

* Query Based Extraction: Based on the client’s search criteria, Index Engines will extract the relevant data and deliver it to the client. The index built during Look & Learn can also be hosted for an extended time for future query-specific extractions.

Powered by Index Engines’ patented and industry-leading direct tape indexing technology, this flexible tape load, virtual search and data delivery service allows law firms and service providers quick and easy access to tape content without the initial investment in hardware or software, and without an upfront learning curve. The starting price of $50 per tape makes it easy to get access to legacy content so legal and forensic specialists can then apply their analytical expertise.

Three choices are now available to leverage the power of an Index Engines solution: an in-house deployment, a virtual deployment using the new cloud-based service, or as a value-added service using one of over fifty service partners worldwide who provide end-to-end eDiscovery services.

Availability and Pricing
The Look & Learn service is available immediately with prices starting at $50 per tape. For more detailed information on this new service offering, please contact Index Engines at 732-817-1060 or
