Riverbed Helps US Law Firm Consolidate Its Infrastructure
Application performance infrastructure leader Riverbed has helped a major US law firm to radically overhaul its IT.
The customer, Paul Hastings, a West Coast firm, has worked with the vendor to consolidate its global network of offices’ technology needs into just four ‘hub’ data centres – a move it says has accelerated data recovery choices as well as improving overall data security.
“The results have been great,” comments the Paul Hastings’ director of engineering, Searl Tate.
Tate had been looking for a way to cut the cost of supporting his branch networks needs, yet still deliver superior service and support.
His search led him to the Riverbed Granite branch converged infrastructure solution, which he and his team used to meet those requirements.
“With Granite, the applications perform as they did when the data was stored locally,” he confirms, adding that branch data is always delivered encrypted from the data centres but at local speed".
Meanwhile, because Paul Hastings’ need for extra storage or back up systems is so much reduced, cost savings on kit as well as IT admin is contributing to significant savings, too.
