As a result, the customer never needs to worry about or pay extra for:
- Babysitting the backup process
- Deploying and managing a backup infrastructure
- Maintaining an offsite DR facility
- Replicating to multiple sites
Barrister Digital Solutions (BDS) is a good example of how collapsing the number of copies to one can affect IT. BDS provides digital discovery, document management and litigation support for many of the largest law firms in the country, as well as large corporations and the public sector. Security is the company’s top concern regarding its data, given the kind of sensitive information it manages, but the IT team also wanted to simplify its data protection process and sharply reduce its storage footprint. CEO Nick Bruno was tired of buying more capacity than BDS needed at the moment in order to ensure he’d have enough to cover new data a year or two down the line.

With ClearSky’s on-demand primary storage service, BDS was able to shrink its storage footprint by 80%. Plus, it no longer needed separate backup and DR systems because ClearSky handles all of that in the background without any impact on the production environment. Even better, BDS was able to reduce its RPOs and RTOs near zero and encrypt all its data in transit and at rest.
“Not having to invest a lot of capital into our infrastructure, and, instead, using a third party to help us manage that part of the business was a relief,” Bruno said. “This is a perfect solution for law firms and guys like me who serve law firms.”
