PerfectLaw’s All-In-One Cloud versus the Hybrid Cloud

In recent years, the legal industry has experienced a quantum leap in legal technology options and legal software solutions. Many of the solutions have begun the move to the cloud from what was once only local server-based environments. Although a lot of marketing buzz has been created around the recently developed Hybrid Cloud, there are still numerous reasons why PerfectLaw’s All-In-One cloud model rises about the rest. These two models offer different solutions for different size firms running different products.

The Hybrid Cloud, although offering a diverse set of options, is often partitioned or broken apart across several different databases, thus requiring add-ons or plug-ins to integrate with third party software . This is not ideal.

In the All-In-One cloud, everything lives in harmony alongside your All-In-One database. This increases security, usability, maintenance, workflow, along a great deal of other perks.

To get a fuller picture, PerfectLaw has developed a 5-part series of short videos that juxtapose the All-In-One Cloud with the Hybrid cloud. The topics include a general overview, maintenance from the IT perspective, workflow, handling external documents, and security.

For this reason, PerfectLaw® has partnered with the nation’s top data center, Verizon’s Terremark NAP of the Americas, to ensure that your PerfectLaw software runs as efficiently from the cloud as it would from your local desktop.
