A data center refresh increases digital security and boosts productivity.
COMPANY: Law firm ranked among Am Law top 50; 800 lawyers in 17 offices handling legal matters in over 160 countries.
PROJECT: Data Center
The firm’s network and data center requirements were changing because of business growth and client demand for increased data-encryption protection. IT leaders decided to investigate the cost of refreshing the data center environment with NetApp’s latest Cluster-Mode offering.
iVision helped the firm assess the pros and cons of making the technology changes. Then the iVision team assisted with a full refresh of the firm’s NetApp 7-mode data center environment, adding NetApp’s Clustered Data ONTAP always-on functionality. The upgrade included more robust encryption technology.
The upgraded data center environment provided the encryption required by the firm’s clients, while also improving network performance. The new technology automatically rebalanced data loads to improve efficiency and boost lawyers’ productivity by reducing disruptions and downtime. What’s more, the refresh added functionality that would simplify future data center upgrades.
