Cristie Data will provide Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and managed cloud backup to Stone King, enabling the specialist law firm to provide a continuous and high level of service to its valued clients.
The five year deal delivers enterprise-class virtual replication for Stone King’s production environment, enabling the firm to rapidly restore its business applications and data to a dedicated private cloud in one of iomart’s secure UK data centres.
Tim Roche, Head of IT at Stone King, said: “We look forward to working with Cristie Data to replace our existing in house platform and make our services in this area more robust. It will improve the way we provide backup and Disaster Recovery services and enable us to recover data in minutes.
“As a national law firm with offices across the country, it is vital that our IT services and security are as efficient as they can be to continue to protect the interests of our clients. With the ever prevalent risks associated with cyber security or a system failure, the new DRaaS will mean that in the event of an attack or system failure, we will be able to fully recover services within hours.”
Sean Tweedlie, Legal Business Development Manager for Cristie Data added: “The solution we’re putting in place for Stone King allows them to use cloud services to drive efficiency without compromising on data security or any of their obligations around regulatory compliance. They can recover and restore their critical data and applications as quickly as possible and, because it’s a fully managed service, they have expert support at all times.”
