ellwood Evidence, Inc. has selected Hammerspace, Inc. as their multi-site storageless data management platform to reduce infrastructure complexity and cost while improving automation.
“Hammerspace is the file data platform we were looking for to build out our sophisticated hybrid cloud infrastructure,” said William Ellwood, CISO, ellwood Evidence. “We collect an enormous amount of data to preserve, analyze, and present as evidence for our clients. It is essential to our business that the automation of data management makes it easy to maintain a transparent chain of custody. At the same time, we need that sensitive data readily available across multiple sites and the cloud for analysis and DR, with complete visibility across all sites and storage systems, while capacity costs are kept under control.“
ellwood Evidence is a 100% Canadian-owned digital forensics company based in Toronto, ONT, that provides forensics and litigation support services across the country. iPhones and Android smartphones, computers, security systems, tablets, photographs and videos, cloud-based social media services, cloud-based file storage services, USB sticks and backups along with filing cabinets of paper and archive boxes – it’s all potential evidence. the firm has expertise in the preservation, analysis, review, and presentation of modern evidence.
ellwood Evidence increases automation while reducing complexity in a hybrid cloud environment
It has simplified the handling of file data across multiple sites and the cloud. With support for multiple open-standard protocols, like NFS and SMB, it has the flexibility to non-disruptively mobilize data on-demand across sites for archival, DR, and analysis. Using metadata-based technology simplifies the file-granular automation of their data management workflows. This reduces the risk involved with human intervention which could potentially contaminate digital evidence.
Capacity costs are kept low as data is automatically tiered and optimized according to objectives defined in the metAdata: while also maintaining critical data protection and availability across the hybrid cloud infrastructure, making storageless. Additionally, Hammerspace integrated into the existing infrastructure while opening a path for future development free from the limitations of a storage-centric architecture.
It helps his client maintain a leadership position in the field of digital forensics as they leverage advanced technologies.
