The Verdict: Alston & Bird Saves Money, Improves Data Protection With NetApp
Alston & Bird LLP is a major U.S. law firm with more than 800 attorneys providing a full range of services to domestic and international clients who conduct business all over the world. In 2004, the firm launched its "Everything. Everywhere. Always." initiative. It enables the people to work anywhere in the world - a client site, at home, a hotel room, a courtroom - with fast, seamless, around-the-clock access to the same resources they have in the office. Such an ambitious information strategy requires a robust, reliable storage infrastructure. At the firm's main data center in Atlanta, more than four million legal documents are stored in a Microsoft SQL Server database on a clustered pair of NetApp FAS6030 systems.
