Digital transformation of the law firm CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats

SPIE ICS, a French subsidiary of the SPIE Group, completed in 2019 a private cloud transformation for the law firm CMS Francis Lefebvre Avocats: an “Infrastructure as a service” (Iaas) provision that is dynamic and cost-effective.  This advanced technology makes it possible to reach new levels of performance and flexibility using hyper-convergence technologies.

SPIE rolled out a hyper-converged infrastructure to protect the storage and transfer of sensitive data while guaranteeing very high data availability. It comprises a server-based solution simultaneously integrating network, storage and computing services. The highly flexible nature of the data storage software management offers an increase in performance and the speed necessary to tackle the law firm’s challenges in terms of development. A completely transparent, user-friendly method of adapting the services to the new solution has made it possible to ensure a seamless migration of services and data.

To access the cloud securely, SPIE ICS also deployed a high-speed internal network connecting the head office in Neuilly - as well as the sites in Strasbourg and Lyon - to two data centres hosting the infrastructure.
