Complete Discovery Source (CDS), opens the only eDiscovery data center in downtown DC.
NEW YORK – CDS, a leading e-Discovery service provider with headquarters in New York City, announced today that its new data center in Washington, DC is fully operational. The company opened its DC regional office in January of 2010. However, the company’s DC-based clients and potential clients expressed a preference for local facilities, so the company’s management team made the decision to build out the new ediscovery processing and hosting data center downtown. For security reasons, the exact location cannot be disclosed.
“We chose a location within the city center to provide an additional level of security and superior data availability,” said Garrett Bendel, Chief Operating Officer of CDS. “We share a building with a highly sensitive U.S. Government agency, which means the building offers benefits, like an unlimited backup fuel supply, that other facilities do not have. For our clients, the downtown location offers peace of mind that their physical data can remain within the Metro area.”
CDS completed its SAS 70 Type II audit on its enterprise-level New Jersey facility in September of 2011. They replicated the New Jersey facility at the DC location and established point-to-point connectivity between the New York, New Jersey and Washington DC facilities to provide redundancy and instant access for their technical experts. The geographic distance between the DC center and the other two facilities will contribute to the company’s robust emergency preparedness and business continuity plans. CDS offers off-site data replication of both live and archived electronic evidence while maintaining possession of the data.
During its time in DC, the company’s electronic discovery experts have become trusted advisors to the region’s legal community representing regulatory and governmental matters. CDS is listed on the U.S. Government Services Administration (GSA) schedule, making the company’s services easily accessible to government agencies located within the capital.
