    What Are the System Requirements for ProLaw?

    Technology is gradually becoming the cornerstone of every business’s and organizations’ work practice and law firms are no exception. ProLaw, a comprehensive software suite, offers a significant toolkit—all engineered to address the diverse needs of law firms. From managing client interactions to navigating conflicts, overseeing contracts, invoicing, and time management, this software promises spot-on integration across various aspects of legal practice.

    However, the potential of ProLaw remains largely unrealized for most law firms due to the limitations posed by on-premise deployment.

    ProLaw’s reliance on on-premise servers presents a set of inexplicable challenges related to accessibility and maintenance. The associated costs and compatibility issues can hinder operational efficiency and restrict growth. On the flip side, the transition to cloud-based infrastructure offers a compelling solution. Switching to cloud desktop services allows law firms to move beyond the limitations of traditional IT setups—with unmatched flexibility, scalability, and cost efficiency in legal management.

    Around 89% of law firms opted for digital strategies, including cloud adoption, in 2023, in a bid to optimize their operational processes.

    ProLaw System Requirements for On-Premise Setup and Cloud

    Deploying ProLaw traditionally (on-premise server) often requires setting up different environments to fit various operating systems and hardware preferences in a firm. This can complicate software deployment and cause inefficiencies in workflow management. In the cloud, on the other hand, all the virtual setup is managed and maintained by the provider, freeing you to focus your brainpower where it’s most needed.

    Let’s have a look at the exact system configuration required for deploying ProLaw on an on-premise server and a cloud-native desktop:

    Aspect On-Premise Infrastructure Cloud Infrastructure (Virtual Machine)
    Operating System Microsoft Windows Server/64-bit Microsoft Azure Virtual Machines/

    Database Standard Microsoft SQL Server/64-bit Azure SQL Database
    Processor Dual/Quad 2.6 GHz Configurable based on cloud provider

    (Configurable based on cloud provider)
    Disk Space 100 GB
    (Varies based on document storage needs)
