Simmons & Simmons offers private cloud and unified backup solution from Orange Business Services

Simmons & Simmons, an international legal practice based in the UK, has leveraged a private cloud solution from Orange Business Services for greater business flexibility and improved resilience for vital customer data, the company said.

The law firm introduced the Orange private cloud solution as part of a move toward an IT-as-a-service model to benefit its customers. It evolved to now include an Orange managed backup solution using the Veeam platform, which provides a unified backup system and data replication for mission-critical applications and disaster recovery globally. Simmons & Simmons now benefits from a future-proof solution to deal with rapidly changing industry demands and reduce the burden of managing legacy IT infrastructure.

Employing over 1,500 people, Simmons & Simons operates out of 22 offices in major business and financial centers throughout Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. As an international law firm, it operates in an industry with stringent regulatory compliance and data security concerns.
