Scaling is an especially important aspect of FreeEed. A new super-fast processing engine is in the works.
HOW IT WORKS?
The input data is staged by zipping it in archives of a set size. Then in processing each file is
read from the archive, assigned unique ID, and processed with Tika, which extracts text and
metadata. Metadata, text and the file itself are delivered as processed results.
The primary building blocks of the system are Tika, Lucene, SOLR.
The companion application, FreeEed Review, offers document review.
It is integrated with SOLR so that users get the advantage of the SOLR open source ecosystem.
Metadata results are output as a CSV file, while the native files and the extracted text are stored in a zip file(s). The end results can be used for culling and producing native files for legal review You can use FreeEedUI for review or load it into Concordance.
With the compilation and professional support available for enterprise use, FreeEed brings high performance, scalability and reliability to data processing at a fraction of the cost of proprietary products.
