Law firms commonly rely on the wide area network (WAN) to share files, communicate with clients, and back-up data. Unfortunately, these networks often lack the flexibility to react to fast-paced changes in daily demands.
Top real estate law firm Cox, Castle & Nicholson LLP (“Cox, Castle”) experienced this first-hand with application performance challenges using the firm’s Citrix virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). This was compounded by the ongoing cost of adding bandwidth to keep up with growing replication demands to the disaster recovery site.
In this video, Erica Greathouse, director of IT for Cox, Castle & Nicholson LLP, talks about using Silver Peak WAN optimization to improve the performance and reliability of her environment.
Cox, Castle searched for a solution that would future-proof their network; one that would automatically optimize any new applications they deployed, and would scale to meet growing traffic demands across a lower-cost multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) network. Silver Peak emerged as the clear leader in WAN optimization to meet the firm’s requirements.
Erica says it best: “I can’t tell you today what our traffic demands might be tomorrow. One of the great things about Silver Peak’s VXOA is that it allows us to not think about optimizing our environment—it just does it.”
Today, Cox, Castle views Silver Peak as an insurance policy that automatically takes care of unknown future traffic demands and new applications.
