HP Autonomy eDiscovery in the cloud. HP (HPQ) announced a new cloud-based eDiscovery offering that provides businesses with a fast, easy and cost-effective path to leverage HP Autonomy’s eDiscovery platform. HP eDiscovery OnDemand delivers the entire HP Autonomy eDiscovery platform – including processing, early case assessment, review and production – as a secure cloud offering. Legal teams can quickly and easily upload case files and manage the complete eDiscovery process with a single platform and vendor. It goes through regular third-party audits testing operational process, personnel and security, and also provides access to HP’s industry-leading eDiscovery software and analytics, which have been battle tested with some of the world’s largest and most demanding organizations across a wide variety of industry verticals. “Software-as-a-Service offerings like this one empower legal professionals to focus on managing the eDiscovery process and analyzing and reviewing information,” said Alan Winchester, partner at Harris Beach, a New York–based law firm ranked one of the top law firms in the United States by the National Law Journal. “For firms without robust IT departments, it grants them the experts to manage the technology operations and security.”

Sematext launches monitoring and alerting solution for Apache Storm. Search and big data analytics company Sematext announced it has added Apache Storm and Redis monitoring and alerting to SPM, its core Performance Monitoring solution. An enterprise-class solution available in Cloud (SaaS) and On Premises editions, SPM monitors critical Search and Big Data services like Hadoop, Elasticsearch, Kafka, Solr, ZooKeeper and many others running on hundreds of thousands of servers all over the globe. “We are excited to add monitoring and alerting for Apache Storm and Redis to SPM,” said Otis Gospodnetic, Sematext’s founder and CEO. “Originally developed at Twitter for handling over 500 million tweets per day, Storm’s ability to perform distributed, real-time mining of high volume data streams has become indispensable to many organizations. And we didn’t just stop at adding Storm monitoring and alerting. We’ve also added support for Redis, a fast key-value store that has taken hold with developers everywhere due to its blazing performance and ability to process literally thousands of requests per second. These new additions to SPM will surely save our users significant time — and many headaches!”
