About MDAS

Mallee District Aboriginal Services (MDAS) provides more than 120 essential services from health and family services centres in Mildura, Swan Hill, Kerang and Robinvale in North West Victoria.


MDAS was under pressure to ensure it’s IT infrastructure could cope with new demand placed on it by rapid growth whilst maintaining the highest backup and redundancy standards. Their workforce was becoming more and more mobile and access to data in real time was critical to ensuring positive outcomes for their customers, something which until implementation of IaaS was not a reality


MDAS engaged Acurus to provide a cost-effective, scalable infrastructure solution that enabled MDAS to deliver its services and programs. Acurus worked closely with MDAS’s IT team to develop a complete infrastructure solution that would meet MDAS’s current requirements and into the future. The solution comprised a custom hosting solution based out of Melbourne and an Acurus Hybrid Network connecting all eight MDAS sites. All servers were migrated and upgraded, and Citrix XenApp implemented to provide a consistent experience and service to all of the MDAS sites.
