High availability to maintain productivity
A full service law firm with multiple locations in the UK and 930 staff, Mills & Reeve provide services to individuals and businesses, including leading health, education, real estate and insurance sector clients.
IT is critical to their business – and downtime needs to be avoided at all costs. Dave Bradshaw, IT Infrastructure Manager for Mills & Reeve, is responsible for keeping the servers running at each of the offices.
Their original solution lacked resilience in the local server set-up, and Dave realized that this could open the door for harmful downtime that could result in reduced productivity, lost revenue and on-site technical expertise.
Dave began looking for a cost effective, highly available and resilient solution which would improve recoverability, and a traditional SAN or other software-defined storage solution was too complex and costly.
