LKC Uses Fujitsu Storage ETERNUS and PRIMERGY Servers

"Fujitsu’s blade servers and storage systems allowed us to boost performance by up to 40% and significantly increase our security standards. As auditors, tax advisers and lawyers, we have a great deal of responsibility with regard to data security and availability, particularly in terms of professional guidelines"

Robert M. Beck, Auditor, Tax Advisor and Partner at LKC Group Peter Jordan, IT Risk Manager and Partner at LKC Group

The customer
