McCabes enters the Hybrid Cloud12-Dec-2011
As featured in Legal Practice Intelligence, the Projects team at Huon IT has implemented an innovative hybrid cloud solution for McCabe Terrill Lawyers.
Utilising Citrix technology and a NetApp SAN, the project consolidated McCabe’s system from 15 physical servers in two rooms, to just one small space with half the rack size.
The on-premise private cloud is complimented with Disaster Recovery as a Service in the public cloud, offering scalability, efficiency and complete redundancy in the event of downtime.
The transformation project has empowered the firm’s in-house IT better manage their systems, with IT Manager Brad Allen stating “Thanks to Huon IT, we’ve dramatically reduced our administration overhead and energy costs, and now have industry-leading disaster recovery procedures in place. Before it could have taken days to get up and running in the event of system failure. Now we can do it in one hour.”
