Pinsent Masons Case Study

Managed Cloud Services improve resilience and reduce risk

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.

“Proact’s service has offered us a far more efficient solution that significantly increases performance and provides a guaranteed cost per GB, making it easy to predict storage costs over the next three years.”

The challenge: 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.

The solution: 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. Proact’s cloud Service Management and IaaS offerings, including onsite Storage as a Service (STaaS), has delivered significant benefits to Pinsent Masons namely greater availability, reduced costs and increased performance.
