LexisNexis ® Legal & Professional ( www.lexisnexis.com), a leading global provider of content and technology solutions, today announced a unique alliance with VCE to provide litigation service bureaus and large law firms with a robust and cost-effective way to deploy their own cloud-based systems for handling large-scale electronic discovery projects.
VCE is a pioneer in the development of converged infrastructure systems. Its advanced Vblock™ Systems enable customers to reduce IT infrastructure costs and increase business performance by quickly and efficiently deploying an on-premise cloud computing system. Two best-in-class electronic discovery software tools from LexisNexis – LAW PreDiscovery™ and Concordance® Evolution – will be packaged with VCE’s VblockTM Systems.
LAW PreDiscovery is an advanced electronic discovery software application from LexisNexis that offers litigation teams the ability to filter and cull non-responsive e-discovery and scanned documents before review. Concordance Evolution is the next generation of a fully installed enterprise review software product from LexisNexis that handles e-discovery management for cases of any size and is specifically designed for large-scale, complex litigation.
“By offering LAW PreDiscovery and Concordance Evolution packaged with VCE Vblock Systems, we will enable our customers to diversify their e-discovery applications and accelerate the time to deployment of a cloud-based system,” said Matt Gillis, vice president and managing director of the Litigation Tools & Professional Services business at LexisNexis. “LexisNexis customers deploying this new bundled solution will only pay for the storage and software seats that they actually use, making it a cost-effective solution for large law firms and service bureaus.”Vblock Systems integrate virtualization, compute, networking and storage technologies from Cisco, EMC and VMware into a single cloud-based converged infrastructure platform. The system is highly secure and is pre-integrated, pre-tested and pre-validated prior to deployment. “Enterprises everywhere are looking to lower costs by modernizing their IT infrastructure for the cloud. VCE Vblock Systems provide a robust and flexible path to cloud computing, allowing customers to focus on adding business value, rather than managing disparate IT systems,” said Michael O’Hara, Vice President, Strategic Alliances, VCE. “With our Vblock Systems, LexisNexis can rapidly deploy its software to service bureaus and large law firms with minimal time to market, risk and costs.”
