Organisation: Paxton-Hall Lawyers is an independent Queensland law firm that delivers outstanding advice in the complementary areas of company and commercial, wills and estates, not-for-profit law and property law. As a long standing client Paxton-Hall looked to Trimble Networks to upgrade their server and domain controller.
Challenge: With some users now working away from the office, the requirement for reliable off site access became far more important. Paxton-Hall Lawyers currently had an aging Citrix server that was not a critical part of their operations. The server would not be up to the task that was now required of it.
Solution: . The decision was made to replace both the aging Citrix server and the Domain Controller with a single new server running Hyper-V and hosting a new Domain Controller and Remote Desktop Serer. The opportunity was also taken to replace the workstations as part of the project.
The delivered solution incorporated the following server and infrastructure deployment and management to achieve the required outcome;
Provisioning of local Active Directory Environment
Standardise and upgrade software and email - leveraging Office 365
Desktop hardware refresh
Implementation of secure wireless access solution
Provision a windows 2012 R2 Server infrastructure to deliver a virtualised platform hosting
Provision a local file/print server
