Sausalito, CA, and Melville, N.Y. (PRWEB) October 12, 2009
LegalCloud and FalconStor Software Inc. (NASDAQ: FALC), the provider of TOTALLY Open™ data protection solutions, today announced that LegalCloud has licensed technology from FalconStor to provide superior disaster recovery and business continuity services to legal clients worldwide.
FalconStor® Continuous Data Protector (CDP) and FalconStor Network Storage Server (NSS), part of FalconStor's comprehensive suite of Totally OPEN™ storage software, will be used in conjunction with LegalCloud's Total Data Protection Service to cost-effectively replicate all systems, applications and data from clients' existing primary data center facilities into LegalCloud virtual data centers.
The Total Data Protection service has been crafted in conjunction with legal beta clients over the past few months. Close integration with VMware and LegalCloud's self service provisioning tools mean that legal clients can now cost-effectively replicate all data and systems into secondary LegalCloud facilities, instantly recover data and systems and completely eliminate other forms of offsite backup like tape. The result is significant improvements in disaster recovery at up to 80 percent cost savings over existing conventional methods widely in use by law firms.
"Due to cost and complexity, many law firms today are protecting just a few core systems. Cloud computing has altered the economics of data center service for law firms," said Mark Hadfield, CEO, LegalCloud. "FalconStor® software is a key component in our Total Data Protection Service, which enables law firms to cost effectively replicate all systems and data to LegalCloud. Recovery times range from instant to a few minutes, and there are cost savings everywhere you look." he continued.
"LegalCloud has created an innovative solution for this sector leveraging FalconStor software solutions and cloud computing in compelling ways," said Bernie Wu, vice president of business development, FalconStor Software. "Our software is proven within the largest of law firms. The relationship with LegalCloud will broaden our footprint among many new firms."
Legal customers are provided with an enterprise license of FalconStor technology while utilizing the LegalCloud Total Data Protection service. Standardizing on a single technology for backup, failover and recovery of data across all systems simplifies IT support and reduces complexity. Functional advantages include data recovery in minutes, 100 percent transactional integrity, ease of testing and rapid recovery. Cost advantages present up to 80 percent savings over a private collocation facility approach.
LegalCloud leverages the power of Cloud Computing technologies for the benefit of Legal clients worldwide. Delivering high quality data center services at great value, the company was founded by legal technology industry veterans whose previous ventures include Workshare (DeltaView), a legal staple with over 8,000 legal clients.
