Learn how storage economics are changing
how you can store and manage unstructured data
As you are well aware, law firms are finding themselves in the middle of a data explosion, and the unfortunate reality is that enterprise storage offerings only satisfy part of the overall data needs. Corporate data must be backed-up, archived, retained and vaulted to an off-site location during its lifecycle. To make matters increasingly difficult, our legal clients tell us their customers are demanding a reduction in cost to manage their legal affairs which means law firms need to look for ways to cut costs, especially STORAGE. We can help!
Project Leadership Associates and Microsoft have partnered on a cloud-integrated storage solution that leverages on-premises storage for active data and inexpensive cloud storage for "cold data". Not only will you save storage costs by only paying for what you use, but you can reduce the footprint by leveraging de-duplication and compression at the block level.
During our luncheon, attendees will learn how to remove the security, performance, application change and recovery-time barriers to adopting cloud storage in the legal space. Come see how we marry the functionality of enterprise storage with the elasticity and economics of cloud storage to deliver substantial cost savings.
Let us entice you with lunch, plus a chance to win a Surface Pro and an opportunity to learn about a tried and true technology that will allow you to eloquently tame the growing storage demands generated by your practice, and stop spending a majority of your budget on storage costs.
