BROKERAGE AND SOLUTION PROVIDER

ABOUT
ACCESSPOINT

They’re predominantly focused on helping enterprises in the legal and professional services sector achieve the immense benefits that cloud and utility computing platforms have to offer.


THE
STORY

The firm provides a range of IT services, including a number of fully featured Legal Practice Management Systems delivered as integrated solutions which combine hosted hardware, cloud based software, digital dictation, office applications and technical support to law firms of all sizes. In late 2011, with demand for its services increasing, the firm decided to move from the shared Amazon EC2 platform to its own racks in a private data centre.


THE
help4IT EFFECT

With all of its clients using Windows systems, the firm has built strong technical expertise across Microsoft software environments. However, the move to its own cloud and data centre required additional VMware and Linux expertise. As Victor van der Poel, the firm’s Technical Director explains, “as strong proponents of outsourcing for expertise, we turned to help4IT, who brought a level of knowledge and understanding around virtualisation and Linux systems which was essential in helping us quickly build a reliable and scalable server infrastructure.”
