The new IT infrastructure based on ETERNUS AF250 All-Flash and PRIMERGY RX2530 halves log-in times and doubles application performance at legal service provider Vincents Solicitors

"Logging in takes less than 30 seconds as opposed to over a minute and processing times have halved. That means our users spend less time waiting and more time getting on with the job in hand."

Russell Flint, IT Manager Vincents Solicitors

Boosting performance and availability through innovation

Customer

Established in 2000 in Garstang, UK, Vincents Solicitors has expanded quickly and today operates from seven offices across Lancashire, making it the leading legal service provider in the region. Each office is a hub of expertise in specific aspects of legal advice, including commercial law, personal injury, medical negligence, divorce and family law, conveyancing and wills & probate.

Challenge

Vincents Solicitors’ ageing IT infrastructure was prone to failure, slow and no longer able to cope with the company’s growth. It wanted to find a flexible, cost-effective and high-performing alternative.

Solution

Working with local IT specialist, Holker IT, Vincents Solicitors deployed three FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY RX2530 running VMware virtualisation in combination with a FUJITSU Storage ETERNUS AF250 All-Flash device. twelve virtual machines provide key applications and virtual desktop infrastructure for 100 thin clients.

Benefit

  • Log-in times have halved and application performance has doubled
  • Availability has improved with 100 per cent uptime
  • The Fujitsu Reliability Promise for Enterprise Hardware guarantees that if there are any problems during the first year, it will refund and replace the hardware
  • Perpetual licences reduce costs of scaling out the storage
