Should I or not move my resources to a cloud provider?
I would like to get some feedback from others that have done this. We have multiple offices with about 140 employees.
My firm is in the process of getting an assessment done to give guidance for upgrades and future projects. What they have come back to us with is to move our on-prem Exchange and Document Management to the cloud along with our Domain as the initial phase and eventually move aging resources to the cloud when they are in need for the upgrade.
- Exchange will be Office 365
- AD will be Azure
- DMS will be its own cloud service.
I have hesitations on this based on our data footprint as well as the need for performance. The consultant feels that the cloud model will give everyone ease of mobility as well as remove the need of VDI for remote access. We currently have 3 offices, but all the data resides in our primary location and the remote office connect back to the primary office.
