Axis Professional Services Teamed Up With Nimble To Scale Law Office's Productivity

Problem Overview:

The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein has grown into one of Maine’s leading personal injury law firms. With a staff of more than 50 professionals in 6 different locations, they have been dedicated to serving the legal needs of the firm’s clients for more than four decades.

The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein was struggling with an aging Dell EqualLogic IT infrastructure. In addition, they had a data forensics system that ran on a proprietary hardware platform, that needed a manufacturer supported Storage Area Network (SAN). The firm was looking to expand its Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) footprint but the existing storage platforms simply could not meet performance requirements. This put the law firm at risk and was affecting day-to-day business activities.


To address The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein’s concerns and needs, Axis and Nimble Storage designed and deployed Nimble AF5000 All Flash SAN. The AF5000 delivers high performance and low latency for production-sensitive workloads that require the best blend of price/performance/scalability.


As a result, Nimble Unified Flash Fabric is delivering superior performance over previous infrastructure, providing staff with a more stable and enhanced user experience. The migration to current state media along with predictive growth and analytics through Infosight Predictive Analytics, has allowed the law firm to effectively address current performance requirements while effectively planning for future use cases and growth. Lastly, Nimble’s Controller Refresh Program has provided investment protection for the firm by guaranteeing performance levels through hardware refreshes as needed. Overall, Nimble AF5000 All Flash SAN has enabled the law firm to better serve their clients, while increasing capacity and productivity.


The relationship between Axis, Nimble and The Law Offices of Joe Bornstein has proven to be a strong fit. Chris Berube, IT Manager at Joe Bornstein said “Nimble’s performance has been very impressive. We moved all of our workload, including VDI, onto just one array. The AF5000 simply chews up everything we throw at it and hums right along.”
