moving servers to cloud
Posted on 2012-09-13
intermedia.net offers cloud VMs in a private network. i am looking to move my 4 on-premise VMs to the cloud. they have offered an option for me to upload the entire VMs. that will of course cause several days of downtime which i am trying to minimize.
they offer a site to site vpn option. i'm wondering if i setup a server there and a vpn connection, if i can make the server in the cloud i create a domain controller and let AD replicate. then i can move the other servers without having too many issues.
thoughts on this?
