I wrote earlier about Index Engines and how I thought that technology might change the landscape when it comes to determining what’s inaccessible electronically stored information. I also saw today that RenewData has announced their own technology to make data on tape backups more accessible.
Sean Doherty over at EDD Update has some details on RenewData’s technology, news that CommVault is using the Index Engines technology specifically in the E-Discovery realm, and related thoughts about the inaccessible/accessible debate is being moved by new technology.
I suspect the needle of what’s inaccessible will continue to be moved, to a point where just about everything is accessible It’ll just be a matter of time until the costs of recovering data will be low enough that we ma not even see this debate any more. We’ll see how this plays out over the years.
