Lathrop & Gage Reaches A Verdict On Modern Data Management With CommVault Simpana Software And Integrated Snapshot Management

OCEANPORT, N.J., Jan. 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  CommVault (NASDAQ: CVLT) –  Lathrop & Gage LLP, considered the oldest continuously operating law firm west of the Mississippi River, replaced three separate software products for snapshot management, replication, backup and recovery, virtual server protection and disaster recovery, by consolidating on the CommVault® Simpana® 9 software platform. More than 750 employees, including 325 attorneys across 11 offices coast to coast, now have full confidence in their IT team's ability to safeguard business-critical data and client files as well as crucial applications, encompassing document management, legal discovery and litigation support.

Lathrop & Gage relies heavily on hardware-based snapshots to meet expectations for rapid application recovery and has integrated multiple snapshot management solutions into one. By taking advantage of CommVault's IntelliSnap snapshot management technology and seamless VMware integration, the firm has improved its virtual server protection, safeguarding hundreds of virtual machines in minutes. Full backups, which once took three to four days to complete, now can be performed in less than one day.

The firm now has the ability to automatically snapshot all of its tier-one applications, including crucial systems that drive law-firm operations. Lathrop & Gage is now snapshotting close to 80 percent of its environment with greatly improved reliability. Thanks to CommVault's embedded deduplication, 30-day retention of all backups is easily accomplished and the firm has realized a 30x snapshot space savings by reducing 300 TBs of snapshot data to 10 TBs of deduplicated snapshots.

Centralized Management Yields Dramatic Reduction in Administration and Capacity Requirements

Managing disparate data protection platforms overburdened the firm's three-member team responsible for data protection, especially as successful backups and restores became "hit or miss." Moreover, it became exceedingly difficult to ensure that Lathrop & Gage's environment, which was 90 percent virtualized, could keep pace with ongoing expansion and dynamic workloads. In particular, the team experienced persistent problems performing snapshots of its VMware environment, highlighted by an incident where they couldn't recover a virtual machine.
