Ocean Media were struggling with a complex IT setup that evolved over time, where data had grown out of control and was hosted on outdated servers. Users would invariably struggle to access data and files required to do their job. There were occasions where a server failure halted business and people would be sat idle and frustrated, without the appropriate backup and recovery, this could be the case for days and the loss in revenue was significant.
Ocean needed a solution that would simplify their IT setup, improve reliability and user experience and that in the event of an incident would have the business back up and running within minutes. This was also an opportunity to migrate workloads to the Cloud but with some applications needing to remain on-premises Ocean knew they needed a hybrid IT solution. Ocean Media wanted to keep capital outlay to a minimum and wanted to maintain some on-premises IT support which the team had become used to and were nervous of losing.
