It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there is no distinctly native criminal class except Congress. Mark Twain
Updated to include the storage industry...
It could probably be shown by facts and figures that there are only two distinctly native criminal classes in the USA, Congress and the Computer Storage Industry.
Does this seem like an overpriced service offering to you?
Active Archive is priced at $4 per user and $5 per Gbyte per month, although Hegarty says that discounts are available if users buy storage capacity in advance.
If so, this must seem as nutty to you as it does to me...
The service involves Kazeon hooking its IS1200 indexing device to a customer's network and scanning files based on factors such as file age and size. Pricing for the Data Assessment Service, available now, starts at $10,000 for an initial 4 Tbytes, with each additional Tbyte costing $1,000.
Are these people serious?
