In order to minimize time & cost for E-Discovery, many vendors have developed and released competitively their own service systems or software applied state-of-the-art technologies. Among them, Cloud Computing is one of the most exclusive skills as a computing infrastructure for E-Discovery service. However, these products actually do not cover all E-Discovery works that have to be done and have many drawbacks & considerable limitations. So, this paper proposes a new type of E-Discovery Service

Simply put, the goal of EDCS is to put all functions required during a whole E-Discovery procedure on the cloud service. This means EDCS enables for E-Discovery participants to collaborate smoothly by removing constraints on working place and minimizing the number of direct contact with target systems. What people who want to use the EDCS need is only a network device for using the Internet. Moreover, EDCS can help to reduce the waste of time and human resources because there is no need to install specific software on every target system and it can give a relatively exact time of completion according to the amount of data for manpower control. Resultingly, EDCS can solve the litigant's cost problem.
