Cloud Utility Pricing: Reduce Hosting Costs and Go Green in the Bargain

About this talk
Since the dawn of the digital age, ediscovery vendors have charged for hosting the way landlords charge for rent: by the month. As with a rental home, you pay hosting fees for ediscovery sites even when you aren’t using them. The problem is worse for sites that need to remain online for months “just in case.”
Modern cloud computing offers new options for ediscovery sites, ones that can provide greater security and save substantial amounts on hosting costs. Instead of running a site 24/7, turn it off when you aren’t using it. Sites can be spun back up in a matter of minutes, about the time it takes to get a cup of coffee. Charges are hourly rather than monthly.
Join our panel of lawyers and legal technologists to discover how Cloud Utility Pricing can dramatically reduce hosting costs, increase data security and help turn ediscovery green. Learn how you can save substantial amounts on hosting fees by running sites on a schedule, turning them on and off manually or have Merlin’s Cloud Energy Saver utility turn sites off automatically when not in use.
Cloud Utility Pricing is the first Green Computing Initiative for ediscovery–in fact one of the first innovations in hosting costs since ediscovery began. Save as much as 70% on hosting services just by turning off the site. And do something good for the planet in the bargain.
