Does archiving email offsite affect e-discovery and compliance?

When using a hosted email archiving service, bandwith and response time are two issues that may affect e-discovery and compliance efforts.

Bandwidth is one issue that companies should consider if you're going to go offsite for e-discovery. There's some...

anecdotal evidence that response times haven't always been as fast as the service provider claims.

So if you were going to pick one of these service providers, specifically for litigation purposes and to turn around responses for litigation fast, you should talk to two or three other customers that are using that service for that same reason, just to see what kind of response times they're getting. There can often be bandwidth constraints and issues around throttling bandwidth for different customers.
