We mulling over migrating an on premises server to Azure for a current customer. I've provided a scenario in hopes that someone can provide some insight and answers in order to assist us with our decision to propose Azure as a possible solution.
(Example) A customer of mine has an on premise server running Windows 2012 R2 with Active Directory used for authentication from their client computers. They also use the same server for File Sharing, and running and accessing 3 LBA Line of Business Applications of which the client computers access on the server via shared drives. The current on premises server has a total capacity of 1TB with redundancy.
Can said customer use Azure to run and operate their Windows 2012 R2 server AND access and use their LBA Line of Business Applications to work JUST AS IF THEY WERE WORKING FROM A LOCAL SERVER?
