Straight speaking law firm, Pinsent Masons, has signed a three year contract with Proact, the UK’s leading provider of enterprise Cloud Services, for Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Service Management.
With reputation fundamental to its business, Pinsent Masons needed to ensure that key applications were protected against unplanned downtime. Keeping services online and deliverable to both users and clients was crucial. With a global presence, Pinsent Masons needed to consolidate as previously each office had its own local infrastructure. However, the capital expenditure associated with upgrading elements and consolidating others, meant that Pinsents needed to look at alternative cost models.
Due to its successful history with Proact and NetApp, Pinsent Masons approached Proact to help solve the challenge of aligning IT spend with business performance whilst delivering a robust business continuity plan.
