Cloud Environment

I have a customer who is looking to move into Cloud for a company of 5K-10K. They mentioned Google. What would be a good solution for them? I am familiar with Amazon AWS.  I have an initial meeting and this will be a huge project but I am sure there will be a lot of questions.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I suggest you look at Office 365 as it provides Office, Lync, SharePoint, etc. and still maintain functionality with applications such as Excel, etc.

Google is fine for smaller environment where Excel add-ins are not required.

Ok, that is for application.  In terms of hosting server, is AWS or Microsoft Azure better?  And should I go directly with Microsoft for Office 365 or through a 3rd party company (ie GoDaddy)?

Microsoft Office is a no-brainer. Microsoft provide huge cloud storage at a bargain price.

Hi LateNaite,

What are they looking to move to the Cloud? Their entire infrastructure? Just a few services? Just their apps? Purely for DR? Do you have any more info of what they are trying to acheive? With this information people may be able to provide a better solution over others if we knew the aim of the move.

Cheers,

Stu...

Ok- looks like they already have a cloud service - Google and wanted a way to secure the environment.

What has this reason got to do with not awarding points for a relevant answer? Why was Stuart's question not answered? More relevant info may have resulted.
