Our primary task was to understand exactly how Hollywood Monster exchanged data within the business between the members of their large team and with their customers.
They deal with extremely large files on a daily so we needed to take storage and networking into account along with their processes for backing up and disaster recovery. In addition, their diverse working environment, with staff working across Macs, PCs and with Linux lead us to the conclusion that migrating them over to Office 365 and the cloud would be the way forward.
We were confident that the amount of standard storage space available with Office 365 was sufficient to keep up with their growing data volumes, while automatic back-ups would give them the peace of mind that their data was secure. In moving to the cloud they would have full external access to their applications and systems and by moving their email server onto Office 365 they would have the flexibility to refresh or upgrade whenever they needed to. But the major benefit of moving to Office 365 was that it would give them the flexibility to gain access to their data whenever and wherever they needed it.
