NORTHUMBERLAND-BASED law firm Alderson Dodds has moved to the world of cloud computing with the help of Washington-based ICT provider Knowledge IT.
Their entire computer infrastructure has been re-located to one of Knowledge’s regional data centres and is now fully managed and accessed over the internet.
Paul Dunn, IT partner for Alderson Dodds, said: “We were running a relatively compact IT network based on a Microsoft Small Business infrastructure. Even for a small network, it took a lot of time to manage and keep in good shape.
“All business data was located in our main offices, and we were aware that security was becoming more of an issue for the business, so it made perfect sense for us to move onto a cloud computing platform housed in a secure data centre environment.”
A high-speed point-to-point leased line connects Alderson Dodds’ office to Knowledge IT’s data centre network, ensuring fast, resilient delivery of applications and data.
