London-based law firm Denton Wilde Sapte has improved its disaster recovery solution by using a hosting centre facility in London’s Docklands.
The company has chosen Telstra, in conjunction with its partner Comunica, to provide the secured hosting solution to protect and manage mission critical data. By using the co-location centre, Denton Wilde Sapte believes it will benefit from improved disaster recovery capabilities and reduced IT data administration and costs.
Denton Wilde Sapte recently moved from two London office sites to one and took the opportunity to review its IT infrastructure. As part of the move the firm decided to upgrade its IT infrastructure and replace its in-house disaster recovery solution with specialist hosting from Telstra.
The firm has taken 82 square metres of co-location space and has the option and capacity to add further servers to its private suite as its data storage requirements evolve. Denton Wilde Sapte should gain from the reduced costs of not having to maintain its original in-house disaster recovery solution, improved security by having its mission critical data hosted off-site and superior levels of service and flexibility, such as the provision for scalable levels of bandwidth as required.
Neil Pamment, director of IT services at Denton Wilde Sapte, says, "Improved data security and ease of access were fundamental considerations in choosing to outsource the firm's datacentre to Telstra Europe.
“We now have disaster recovery capabilities that are more robust, an IT infrastructure that is more efficient, enabling us to work safe in the knowledge that our mission critical data is housed in first class, state of the art facilities."
