SHMsoft, a worldwide leader in providing innovative solutions to high-tech problems based upon disruptive technologies, is pleased to announce new releases of FreeEed†™, and EC2Eed†™, open-source platforms for processing e-discovery.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“FreeEed and EC2Eed provide fully scalable, fault-tolerant ways for processing data and can cope with any size of e-discovery job, from gigabytes to petabytes,” said Mark Kerzner, President of SHMsoft of Houston.
“The processing engine in FreeEed and EC2Eed is organized by the Hadoop framework which supports data-intensive distributed applications under a free license. I further developed the Hadoop platform using HDFS, HBase/SimpleDB, Tika, Lucene, and Solr, cutting-edge technologies that enable FreeEed and EC2Eed to handle all types of structured, unstructured and semi-structured data in a fast and efficient manner,” Kerzner said.
● FreeEed Release 3.1.4 provides the litigation support/IT professional an option of running Windows to process data on their personal workstations. Each project will create its own Lucene index for later searches. Metadata results are output as a CSV file, while the native files and the extracted text are stored in a zip file(s). The end results can be used for culling and producing native files for legal review. An impending release of FreeEed planned for February 2012 will create PDFs and/or TIF files for loading in your litigation review platform.
