AYC Media is a fast paced design and marketing firm that handles the development of many top level projects for companies around the world. They had a requirement in addressing and expanding their IT infrastructure internally to assist with develop and support of their projects and customers. Their business was growing and their need to control their growing asset of files and document management was a top priority. They knew that they had several weak points in their current infrastructure including the speed of the internal network, the current life span of their server, backup retentions and a cloud backup strategy. They also required the need for continued management of their network to take away from the time it was costing current employees to support it.

- NetAlert Monitoring
- Patch Management
- Managed Services
Alura spent a week reviewing the customers’ network and assets. After reviewing the initial setup of the network infrastructure, Alura reviewed the weak points and then assessed a plan to address the infrastructure and concerns of the customer.
With the customer, Alura worked to implement a new hybrid cloud strategy using both a new on-site physical file server and a cloud platform used for their clients and development. Due to the age of the current equipment, Alura implemented a new firewall and upgraded the server hardware. Alura built a new internal domain for the customer and setup a new file management design for the client. We migrated all of the files into this design and put our Cirrus backup strategy on top. The client now has the power needed for the document management side as well as the security that their files are backed up and available if an issue arises. AYC has also reported that the changes have led to an increase in their employee’s productivity time with the new speed and consistency of their document management.
The outcome of the project gave AYC everything they had needed in creating a faster and more robust infrastructure that they are now able to grow with. They are no longer struggling to handle day to day internal issues and are now able to focus on the bottom line of their business. AYC can now drive their business forward and let Alura handle the problems when they arise.
