MinterEllison is one of the Asia Pacific’s leading law firms operating in Australia, Hong Kong, mainland China, Mongolia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. Their IT infrastructure is key to supporting their strategic intent to continuously evolve their business through innovation, whilst being customer focused driving specific outcomes. A solution was needed to design the IT environment to meet the business’ needs with a strategic approach for future scalability as well as to provide business agility.
Infront provided an in principle architecture on how MinterEllison should design its new platforms working toward a hybrid environment, tiering archive data to cloud, and therefore right size/reducing the on-premises component of their data centre. In addition to this, Infront now also handles day to day management of their backup platforms augmenting Minters’ IT Team.
This partnership allows the MinterEllison IT team to focus on high business value projects and work towards their desire to move as many workloads to cloud as possible. Currently we are undergoing an in-depth workload assessment to provide MinterEllison with suitable candidates for public cloud.
MinterEllison's relationship with Infront has evolved over many years. The success to that relationship is as a result of Infront taking the time to discover and propose infrastructure solutions that deliver the required business outcomes. The recent implementation of Data Protection as a service was commercially competitive, flexible in the delivery and allowed us to take advantage of all the benefits of cloud.
