Casepoint — the industry leader in legal discovery technology for litigation, investigations, and compliance — today announced the official launch of DataSite, a cloud-based data storage and staging solution. DataSite enables corporations, law firms, and government agencies to move data seamlessly between the Casepoint Platform and DataSite, forming a secure, scalable, and cost-effective alternative to on-premises data storage solutions.
Within DataSite, users can upload and download large amounts of structured and unstructured data in its native format, organize and stage that data, conduct searches, and even store, preserve, and manage "golden copies" of data. Users can easily store data they might need in the future but do not necessarily need to access regularly. When litigation, investigations, or regulatory response needs arise, they can move that data back to the Casepoint Platform at the touch of a button.
DataSite also features flexible scalability, meaning users only pay for additional storage if they need it. Whereas, on-premises data storage systems such as server farms typically have predetermined limits on storage capacity but often charge users for full capacity, regardless of their actual needs.
"Data proliferation isn't going anywhere, so it's critical for organizations of all types to have scalable solutions," said Vishal Rajpara, Chief Technology Officer at Casepoint. "As more organizations move to the cloud, they need a secure environment in which to stage and store data on their network that allows them to scale up or down according to their particular needs. DataSite is the next phase in the evolution of delivering a comprehensive cloud-based solution to our clients."
Another benefit of the DataSite is that it enables faster data transfers to the Casepoint Platform since the data already exists within the Casepoint ecosystem — further reducing time and ultimately costs to the organization. Since the data never leaves that ecosystem, it is also more secure for the client.
"For security purposes, DataSite brings all of that data under the umbrella of Casepoint's rigorous security program and protocols so everything is protected between the data source and the Casepoint Platform," said Amit Dungarani, Vice President of Partnership and Strategic Initiatives at Casepoint. "We can document a full record of our clients' data and expand on the concept of matter management like never before. This is a game-changer."
Casepoint is the legal technology platform of choice for corporations, government agencies, and law firms to meet their complex eDiscovery, investigations, and compliance needs. Powered by cutting-edge AI and advanced analytics, Casepoint helps teams cut through large volumes of data to quickly identify insightful and actionable information. Casepoint's secure and scalable cloud-based platform is designed to help organizations take control of their data and processes to maximize efficiency, mitigate risk, and lower overall legal spend. Casepoint's easy-to-use and intuitive interface provides legal hold, cloud collections, powerful data processing, advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, review, and production.

Kentik, the network observability company, today announced general availability of Kentik Map for Azure and extensive support for Microsoft Azure infrastructure in Kentik Cloud.With this release, Kentik provides comprehensive network observability across all multi-cloud deployments, and gives network, cloud, and infrastructure engineers the context to rapidly answer any question about their networks.
Enterprises use Kentik Cloud to optimize performance, resolve network incidents, reduce cloud costs, and maximize ROI of migrations to Azure, Google Cloud, and AWS. These latest Azure enhancements follow the recently announced release of Kentik Map for Google Cloud, underscoring Kentik's command of network observability for hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
Kentik Map for Azure visualizes Azure infrastructure in an interactive, data- and context-rich map that highlights how Azure resources nest within each other and connect to on-prem environments. Additionally, Kentik now collects, analyzes, and contextualizes traffic flow and performance data from Microsoft Azure along with data from on-prem, Google Cloud, and AWS services, enriching all network telemetry with deep application, business, and security context to provide actionable observability across all hybrid and multi-cloud environments.
Organizations can now:
• Reference live visualizations of Azure infrastructure topology in Kentik Map for Azure, with both current and historical views of paths and detailed metadata
• Quickly understand path and performance details of traffic routes that connect Microsoft Azure workloads to data centers across Azure Express Routes
• Visualize and interrogate traffic across Azure Firewalls, Load Balancers, Application Gateways, and other network infrastructure
• Visualize and interrogate all branch, VPN, private cloud, and intra-cloud connectivity that is connected with Azure VWAN
• Drill into the impact of NSG (Network Security Group) configuration on security and productivity with live traffic data
• Use custom tags to add any custom context to Microsoft Azure data along with pre-built Azure-native attributes sourced from Azure APIs
• Create custom dashboards with configurable pre-built widgets to visualize important Azure cost and performance trends
"Legacy NPM and observability tools are simply not able to provide the visibility that enterprises need to understand the impact of traffic flows and performance on customer experiences," said Christoph Pfister, Chief Product Officer, Kentik. "By unifying all network telemetry, across all clouds and data centers, Kentik's latest advancements enable enterprises to make data-driven decisions, optimize resource utilization, and achieve peak performance and security for their hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure."
Kentik is the leading observability company across the network, infrastructure, and cloud. Our platform is a must-have for the network front line, whether digital business, corporate IT or service provider. Network professionals turn to Kentik to plan, run and fix any network, relying on our infinite granularity, AI-driven insights and fast search. Kentik makes sense of network, infrastructure, cloud, host and container flow, internet routing, performance tests and network metrics. We show IT what they need to know about their network performance, health and security to make their business-critical services shine.

Scala Data Centers, the leading Latin American platform of sustainable data centers in the Hyperscale market, announces the start of the SSCLCR01 data center operations, located in Curauma, Valparaíso region, Chile. Scala's new data center, boasting an investment of US$ 65 million and a robust 5MW of IT capacity, has been launched 100% booked to one Hyperscale customer. It is strategically situated in our Curauma Campus, poised for exponential growth, as it is designed to reach a critical capacity of approximately 30MW in the coming years.
Delivered in just 10 months, Scala's new data center is part of the company's strategy to enable new Hyperscale markets acrossLatin America. In addition to the availability of land, energy, connectivity, and proximity to consolidated markets – it is based 56 miles from theSantiagometropolitan area – Curauma will establish itself on the world's connectivity map with the arrival of the Humboldt submarine cable, which promises to connectLatin Americato theAsia-Pacificregions for the first time. With around 9,500 miles of fiber, the Humboldt subsea cable will bring unprecedented scale, connection quality and lower latency betweenLatin America,Asia, and Oceania. Not to mention the connection the data center will have with the U.S. West Coast.
"In a scenario where 5G accelerates the deployment of various services and applications that use high data volume and require low latency, Scala has succeeded in choosing its first campus to become operational inChile," evaluates Scala's CEO and Co-FounderMarcos Peigo. "Furthermore, aligned with our purpose of enabling the future inLatin America, we have created a unique opportunity here for customers positioned on the West Coast of theUSAand for a potential group in APAC (Asia-PacificandChina) to offer their products and solutions to Latin American customers."
Powered by 100% renewable and certified energy, in line with the company's portfolio, the new Chilean data center was built based on the proprietary and innovative One Scala Template design and construction methodology. With high efficiency in the use of its resources, the SSCLCR01 data center was designed to operate with a PUE (Power Usage Effectiveness) lower than 1.2-1.3 and with a WUE (Water Usage Effectiveness) of zero as it uses air cooling.
The SSCLCR01 data center project was led by the company's pioneering Center of Excellence in Engineering (CoE), which has more than 340 engineers, architects, and data center specialists acrossLatin America. CoE oversees the planning and execution of all activities related to the construction and operation of a data center, from site selection, through planning, design, construction, and commissioning, which speeds up delivery to customers and brings gains in scale, energy efficiency, and greater control and visibility of projects.
All SSCLCR01 data center monitoring will be conducted by the company's Command Center, located at its operations headquarters in São Paulo,Brazil, where a trilingual team extensively uses technology, artificial intelligence, and rigorous quality processes to monitor and ensure security, in line with Scala's other sites in operation.
Growth inChile.In addition to Curauma Campus, Scala continues to build Lampa Campus, in the metropolitan region ofSantiago. This will be the largest data center campus ever built inChilewith an IT capacity of 80MW – considering 30MW for initial delivery in 2024. Also in theSantiagoregion, the installation of a HyperEdge data center is planned. Conceived by the CoE, this building will feature the proprietary FastDeploy design and construction methodology, which allows scalable implementation of edge data centers with the same high-quality experience as the traditional model, in up to 50% less time.
Scala will invest approximatelyUS$ 400 millioninChileduring the first phase of the three campuses. Strategically positioned, they will have a combined IT capacity of over 200MW, which is equivalent to around two times the total installed capacity currently in the country, or twice the critical capacity of mature markets inEuropesuch asMadrid.
Scala continues its accelerated expansion plan, with the construction of new sites at Tamboré Campus (São Paulo state,Brazil),Porto Alegrecity (Rio Grande do Sul state,Brazil), and Lampa (Chile), as well as advanced projects to implement other data centers in Jundiaí city (São Paulo state,Brazil),Fortalezacity (Ceará state,Brazil),Chile,Mexico, andColombia. Since its founding in 2020, Scala has invested more thanR$ 8 billion(~US$ 1.6 billion) in Hyperscale data centers inLatin Americaand expects to reach 500MW of distributed capacity over the next five years in four countries it operates. In 2023 alone, the company started operating three state-of-the-art data centers inLatin America, located specifically inRio de Janeiro(13.2MW IT), Tamboré (6MW IT) and, now, in Curauma (5MW IT).
