Avanquest Solutions wins the case for Blackberry Server back-up at Davies Arnold Cooper Commercial Lawyers

Avanquest Solutions has recently provided a Neverfail disaster recovery solution to Davies Arnold Cooper, an international law firm particularly known for its dispute resolution and real estate expertise. The solution provides seamless high availability for Blackberry Enterprise Server, eliminating any potential downtime for users - who rely on constant connectivity - should a problem occur.

Davies Arnold Cooper employ approximately 175 fee earners located in offices based in London, Manchester, Madrid and Mexico City. The Firm uses Blackberry technology - a popular solution for law firms requiring wireless enterprise connectivity for mobile professionals.

Neverfail for BES, a continuous availability and disaster recovery solution, keeps mobile users always on/always connected despite any IT failure which may affect the BlackBerry Enterprise server. In addition to offering customers long term benefits and low-cost deployments, Neverfail for BES is supported and recommended by RIM and enjoys multiple customer references.

Operating seamlessly in the background utilizing heartbeat technology, Neverfail replicates application specific data between active and passive servers in real-time. Should Neverfail identify a potential problem or failure, Neverfail will take pre-emptive action to alert administrators to avoid resorting to a full-system failover, thus maintaining continuous application availability. Should a failover be unavoidable, for example application hung, hardware failure or to allow for maintenance, Neverfail will seamlessly connect users to the passive server and business can continue without interruption.

- Neverfail supports BlackBerry Enterprise Server straight out-of-the-box, saving time and money while eliminating time-consuming and costly customisation or scripting.

- Protects almost any auxiliary application, including anti-virus, backup, archiving, fax and more.

- Ensures high availability and disaster recovery over both LAN and WAN

Stuart Cowell, Head of IT at Davies Arnold Cooper says “We chose Blackberry because of its connectivity advantages, it gives users constant access to important and confidential information, regardless of where they are. Traditional backup and replication solutions can’t provide the rapid return to operations in the event of a failure. The Neverfail solution from Avanquest has solved this problem and given us the insurance that it will always be business as usual at DAC.”
