Law Firm Picks Savvis

ST. LOUIS -- Leading global law firm Allen & Overy LLP is to outsource its UK server and storage IT infrastructure to SAVVIS in a continued transition to fully managed services. With Allen & Overys recent international investment fuelling record growth, the deal will enable its business to have additional availability, security and flexibility to meet current and future demand.

As one of the world’s largest international law firms, with approximately 5,000 employees at 24 locations worldwide, Allen & Overy requires a massive amount of computing and network capacity to meet daily client requirements, as well as constant communication between its global offices.

The total contract with SAVVIS, a global leader in IT infrastructure services for business and government applications, is worth in excess of £12 million and includes the initial £5.5 million deal (announced separately 31st January 2006). Under the terms of the contract expansion, which is an additional £6.8 million, Allen & Overy will migrate its UK business-critical server and storage area network (SAN) operations to SAVVIS. The infrastructure supports Allen & Overy’s corporate website and intranet as well as applications such as its ERP and document management systems and messaging and collaboration solutions.
