Morris Schneider upgrades storage and speed
Morris, Schneider & Prior, LLC, has acquired a new system to increase storage and speed. Its five-year-old Xiotech Magnitude system has been replaced with Pillar Axiom midrange systems, a move that the firm says was necessary to provide more storage space to its image-sensitive data, which filled a lot of disk space. The new software promises to place data on the disk, taking into account the frequency of its use, and thus increase speed. It also assured an easy upgrade and provided an attractive price tag to the law firm. Morris, Schneider & Prior focuses its practice on mortgage foreclosure, commercial litigation, bankruptcy, collections, and other real estate-related matters.
