LawStream FAQ

Yes. LawStream is hosted in a Microsoft Azure Datacenter located in Toronto, Canada. Geo-Redundant backups are stored in a Microsoft Azure Datacenter located in Quebec City, Canada.

Your Firm does. This is a key differentiation with LawStream. We first open an account with Microsoft for your Firm – that is owned by your Firm. LawStream – including all of your files, servers, emails are built inside this account. While we support and maintain the system, all of the data is owned by your Firm, and can be moved to any IT service provider in the future if you choose. 

This depends on your LawStream package. All of our included storage and pricing for additional storage is publicly posted here.

This is up to your firm to decide, but we strongly believe that public clouds are better than private clouds for these reasons. 

  1. Ownership
    A private cloud is a collection of servers that are physically owned and operated by a small company, usually located in space they rent inside of a datacenter. This means that all of the documents and data for your Firm are physically sitting on hardware owned by another company, the same hardware that is being used by other firms that use the same provider.

    A public cloud is a much larger facility, owned by a public company. There are three main companies that offer public cloud services. Microsoft, Amazon, and Google. LawStream uses Microsoft datacenters that are located in Canada.
    LawStream is built inside of an account with Microsoft that is owned and registered to your law firm. This means that your firm owns the data at all times.
  1. Stability
    While a private cloud is owned, maintained, and managed by a small local team. A public cloud is maintained and secured by thousands of engineers. This does not mean that public clouds cannot have problems, but if they do, there are many more resources to restore operations on a public cloud.
  1. Investment
    Often private clouds maintained by small companies with low budgets. Public clouds invest 10s of billions a year in their infrastructure.
    This investment means that your firm can benefit from always best in-class technology, and security.

  1. Scalability
    The resources available in the public cloud will allows for a rapid increase or decrease of services to meet your firms demands.

  2. Security and Compliance
    Microsoft Azure cloud services have meet the most highest levels of security and compliance standards. They lead the public cloud space, and private clouds canot even come close.
