I am running a risk at present with on site servers. I would like to get them to s secure location either in a private or public cloud. I am interested to hear from people who have travelled this journey and are familiar with the pitfalls. The private cloud option is costly as there is the initial outlay of multiple VMware hosts a SAN, back software /device and the usual network redundancy. I have multiple sites all with on prem servers.
I am not up to speed with Azure and will obviously engage with a partner. At a high level what are we looking at e.g setup DC's in azure and then deploy VM's as required? thoughts?
