SPONSORED - Ocean Media case study


At Hewlett Packard Enterprise, we believe that IT should be simple and available to anyone, anywhere.

We have a long-standing relationship with Zynstra, whose software is built on our HPE ProLiant Gen 9 servers to deliver enterprise-class hybrid IT for the SMB.

Our Cloud Managed Servers provide a cost-effective approach to IT, so SMBs can experience the benefits that have previously only been available to large enterprises. Here's an example case study so you can see how we've been helping out other businesses.

Business profile

Ocean Media provides f2f events and marketing solutions for some of the most respected brands across three core sectors, social housing, bridal and weddings, with proven results in reaching the largest, most engaged audiences across each market.

Case Study

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were struggling with a complex IT setup that evolved over time, where data had grown out of control and was hosted on outdated servers.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.
