We custom build high performance forensic workstations which enable you to process and review evidence faster.
If you are processing evidence locally, or wish to distribute processing across multiple workstations within your department, then we will help you to select the best systems to support your workflow. These included the latest 'Z' series desktop workstations from HP, as well as in-house custom designed and built extreme performance workstations using the latest Intel processors. We custom configure each workstation with the capacity and performance you require enabling you to make the best use of all available resources.
When you need to process large amounts of data for rapid analysis, you could use a dedicated environment which can offer more performance and capacity than local processing.
Evidence files can be written to a shared storage area by any examiner, processed rapidly, and then made available for review to remote examiners on the network. Performance and capacity can be configured and scaled to exact requirements, ensuring that resources reach extremely high levels of utilisation providing the best return on your investment (ROI).
Get a reliable and affordable high capacity network storage area to safeguard evidence after acquisition, and provide a working area for case folders during your investigation.
We design custom solutions using the most suitable compute, storage and networking architecture for your environment or budget. This could be scale-out Network Attached Storage (NAS) appliances, converged systems, or file servers with direct attached storage. We have helped out customers to deploy shared storage areas ranging from 10TB through to multiple petabytes of capacity. We can support any protocol you require, including Gigabit/10Gibabit Ethernet networks, iSCSI, or even supplying high bandwidth 16Gb Fibre Channel to each workstation. We take the time to understand your unique requirements before helping you to select the most suitable vendor hardware.
Free up production systems by migrating completed cases, along with associated evidence, to a more affordable storage tier for long term data retention.You can utilise secondary data storage systems, including bulk capacity disk storage arrays and tape libraries, to free up production capacity and satisfy your long term data retention policies. Hardware can be refreshed after a period of time, migrating archived data to a new system benefiting from great storage density. When storing extremely large capacities, an alternative approach could be the integration of an active (on-line) disk archive. Enabling petabyte scale archiving, and offering unmatched durability with instant search and recovery, data could be distributed geographically between connected sites.
If you can't transmit data over wire then you could still rely upon tape to move data off-site. The latest tape libraries feature LTO7 media, and can be scaled from a few terabytes to multiple petabytes. Performance is greatly improved with LTO7, an ideal solution for long term retention and physically transporting data off-site.
