Case Study: Appleby Simplifies Global Disaster Recovery with Fluid Data Technology
Appleby - a global provider of legal, fiduciary and administration services - is a major presence in several of the world’s leading offshore business centers. The company employs more than 700 lawyers and professional specialists at facilities in several key territories, including Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Jersey and Mauritius, as well as in several prominent international financial centers, including London, Hong Kong and Zurich. It provides legal and business solutions for a variety of clients, including global public and private corporations, financial institutions and high-net-worth individuals.
Because Appleby operates data centers in several geographic regions, replication for disaster recovery purposes is one of the company’s top concerns. However, the company’s previous decentralized storage infrastructure, a patchwork of diverse storage systems that had grown through acquisitions and case-by-case deployments, seemed to make multi-site replication prohibitively costly and complex. The solutions proposed by other vendors used a licensing structure that would have made replication extremely costly.
