Case Study

LEO A DALY

Made up of a diverse team of thinkers, dreamers, and makers, LEO A DALY looks to transform the human experience by designing and creating places that truly matter. The firm’s work is as diverse as its globally distributed talent, ranging from air traffic control towers to redesigned office workplaces, cafes, hotels, and transit stations.

Dedicated to innovation, LEO A DALY was one of the first AEC firms to recognize the transformative potential of cloud file storage. In 2015, the company deployed Nasuni to reduce its storage hardware footprint, consolidate its siloed storage infrastructure, and improve file backup and recovery. “If we go back to the beginning, we had multiple things we were trying to solve,” says CIO Stephen Held. “All of the Nasuni selling points matched to problems we were trying to tackle in various ways.”

Additionally, when a rogue file infected with ransomware encrypted about half of the files across the company’s network, LEO A DALY was able to fully recover those files in less than an hour with little to no productivity loss.

More recently, the firm has successfully deployed Nasuni’s latest innovation, Global File Acceleration, which has sped up collaboration between distant offices, improving global workflows. Read more in their Case Study.
