Sutherland Asbill & Brennan, an international legal practice, has selected T5 Data Centers’ turnkey colocation services at their T5@Atlanta Facility. By licensing colocation and enterprise services from T5 Data Centers, the law firm would be able to take advantage of T5’s ‘Smart-Tech’ remote hands support as well as ‘ColoFlex’ metered power services to more closely align costs with consumption.
“Our ColoFlex consumption-based billing model was a key factor in Sutherland’s decision to move its data center operations to T5@Atlanta,” said Craig McKesson, Executive Vice President of Enterprise Solutions, T5 Data Centers. “As companies continue to move toward hybrid cloud deployments they’re looking for a way to better align the cost models of their private environments to those of the public cloud. T5 ColoFlex offers the best of both by providing the added advantages of better data control and security, better reliability as well as cost containment while also enabling our customers to connect to their preferred public cloud environments.”
Sutherland Asbill & Brennan is the latest law firm to sign as a T5 customer, whose “secured and resilient” enterprise colocation environments would be well suited to host the critical data center needs of legal and financial services firms. The combination of enterprise-grade facilities, services and connectivity solutions was compelling enough for Sutherland to relocate its data center from Virginia to T5@Atlanta.
As part of its move into the T5@Atlanta colocation facility, the firm also plans to take advantage of T5 Facilities Management (T5FM) services, which provides comprehensive data center operations and management to ensure optimal uptime while managing total costs. In addition, T5’s Enterprise Solutions Suite includes a consumable infrastructure billing model with metered power and managed bandwidth, so the law firm only pays for services it actually uses.
“We’re excited to welcome Sutherland Asbill & Brennan into T5,” added Mr. McKesson. “We expect to see more law firms move away from paper archives and adopt an extensible data repository to simplify data access and strengthen regulatory compliance.”
T5 Data Centers currently offers “turnkey enterprise services” at its T5@Atlanta and T5@LA data centers. T5’s Enterprise Solutions would provide a simplified approach to IT, offering top-tier managed networking and colocation services purpose-built to meet each customer’s unique demands.
