Cumulus Data Introduces eCloudAssess, New Electronic Discovery "Culling" Module With Flat-Rate Monthly Pricing Model

CHICAGO, May 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cumulus Data Inc. (, a provider of cloud-based data collection and preservation tools for managing electronic discovery in litigation, today announced the launch of eCloudAssess, a fast tool for culling down massive amounts of files in the early stages of e-discovery and is the latest addition to the eCloud suite of products.

eCloudAssess is an add-on module to Cumulus Data's innovative eCloud suite of cloud-based e-discovery tools. eCloudAssess can be activated by users for a flat-rate of $200 per month for each case, with no additional charges tied to the size of the matter or the frequency of use.

"eCloudAssess is a lightning-fast tool that filters, indexes and searches across millions of electronic files at speeds that are far beyond conventional search tools," said Greg Estes, chief executive officer of Cumulus Data. "This tool allows e-discovery teams to finally leverage the power of cloud computing to reduce their data sets prior to expensive processing and review."

eCloudAssess breaks new ground in the legal industry as the only e-discovery software tool powered by Amazon CloudSearch, which utilizes the elasticity of the cloud to produce lightning fast results no matter the size of the data searched with the predictability and cost effectiveness that the legal industry has been waiting for.

"Our aggressive flat-rate pricing model and innovative Amazon CloudSearch technology make eCloudAssess an attractive option for litigation support bureaus, law firms with growing litigation practices and corporate legal departments seeking to bring more of their e-discovery work in-house," said Estes.

This release comes on the heels of the joint announcement earlier this year that Cumulus Data now enables customers to perform ESI collections directly from the Amazon Web Services cloud on-demand, without the need for costly infrastructure or software investment, a capability exclusive to Cumulus Data.

Cumulus Data's eCloud suite is available as a Software as a Service (SaaS) product; a truly on-demand service with no barriers to entry or commitments. The eCloud suite includes eCloudCollect, their flagship product, designed to perform targeted collections of online and remote data without business interruption, it also offers e-discovery teams the option to upload and preserve collections in the cloud or download onto an encrypted physical device. When performing offline remote data collections, eCloudCollect users maintain control of the collection by administering the process via the cloud-based software that allows them to index the custodian's computer and choose the most appropriate collection method.
