Merlin Introduces Cloud Utility Pricing for Ediscovery Hosting

Merlin is excited to release its new Cloud Utility Pricing Program for Investigations and Ediscovery. 

Cloud Utility Pricing is the first ever hourly pricing model for ediscovery hosting. In brief, it allows clients to take control of hosting costs by turning their sites on when they need them and off when they don’t.  The highlights of this new model are:

  • Single-Tenant Architecture:  We developed serverless computing scripts that automate taking sites on and offline in minutes.
  • New Pricing Model: Rather than pay by the month, our cloud hourly model allows you to pay one low hourly rate when you use the site and another, substantially reduced rate, when you turn the site off.
  • Cloud Hourly Savings: Although there are 730 hours in a month, most clients actively use their site for a fraction of that time—by some estimates only about 5-10% of the month (35 to 70 hours). This new pricing model can save you a substantial amount of money every month.
  • The First Green Ediscovery Computing Initiative: Our new model is the first Green Computing Initiative for ediscovery. Turn it off when you aren’t using it to save on hosting costs and do something nice for the planet.
