LegalCloud™, a private dedicated virtual server and desktop solution for law firms.

Tuesday, April 12th, 2016 | LegalCloud, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure | Scott Randall

Advanced Legal is very excited to announce the launch of LegalCloud™, a private dedicated virtual server and desktop solution for law firms. Many cloud hosting packages do not offer dedicated virtual servers or utilize technology that maximizes performance. We do, and that, along with our legal specific expertise is setting our LegalCloud packages apart. While LegalCloud is now available as a package that can be completely customized to fit the needs of your firm, we have been successfully hosting virtualized server and desktop environments for years.

Migrate Prolaw SSRS to a New Server

Thursday, July 9th, 2015 | ProLaw Case Management, Technical | Mike Smith

This guide is migrate a Prolaw SSRS instance from one server to another.  This guide does not cover migrating Prolaw from one server to another, and many steps assume that this has already been done.  This guide is aimed at a firm that has many customizations to their built-in reports, or has many custom reports in Prolaw.  If you are simply using the default reports, there is no real need to move the whole SSRS instance, since the ReportInstaller.exe can easily redeploy the reports to the new server for you in their default setting.

Thin Clients vs Zero Clients for VDI and Beyond

Friday, January 23rd, 2015 | Technology Management, Virtual Desktop Infrastructure | David Schomburg

Thin clients and zero clients are a departure from a traditional desktop/laptop and most of the security and maintenance intensive issues that come along with that package. Both offer IT the kind of centralized control they have been dreaming about for years but there are important distinctions when choosing which client will serve the needs of your firm in terms of performance, security and ease of use.

Shellshock Bash Bug Alert

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014 | Managed Services, Technology Management | Scott Randall

Am I Vulnerable?

For most of our clients the main impact of this vulnerability will be to personal MacBooks, iMacs and Mac Pro devices but this bug also applies to firewalls, routers and even webcams. It is critical that all of the firm’s staff pay attention to the security of devices that they either join to the network, or use to work on and transmit firm documents.

Running stored procedures in Prolaw Document Templates

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014 | ProLaw Case Management | Mike Smith

For complicated document template field codes, you are limited in the SQL functions you can execute inside a document type. To work around this, and to keep the code in your document managable and readable, its possible to execute stored procedures that you have created (in the Prolaw database) when the document is generated. You are even able to pass a variable, such as the matter ID or profressional to the procedure. Using this technique will allow you to use temp tables, recursion, and other SQL functions that you normally would not be able to in ProLaw.

It is time to Rationalize that App – It’s costing you money and you need to know WHY!

Thursday, July 3rd, 2014 | Technology Management, Technology Management | Scott Randall

I shared an article last week on LinkedIn about Application Rationalization – basically a process that gets to the heart of “Is this application being used? How and Why?” This is a process that should be a key step of the planning for any desktop or VDI rollout but is too often either glossed over, or compromised by legacy user requirements and questionable business processes.
