Huon IT has implemented an innovative hybrid cloud solution for specialist Sydney law firm McCabe Terrill.
The solution combines the control and accessibility of an in-house private cloud with the cost saving scalability of public cloud.
Using virtualisation technology and a NetApp SAN, Huon IT reduced McCabe Terrill’s physical footprint from 15 physical servers in two server rooms into a smaller space with half the rack size.
Huon IT also provided Disaster Recovery as a Service. Without needing to buy and maintain a second set of redundant infrastructure, the firm now has complete redundancy and preservation of critical data via the Public Cloud.
“Before, it could have taken days to get up and running in the event of system failure,” explains Brad Allen, McCabe Terrill’s IT manager. “Now we can do it in one hour.”
