To the CLOUD! Wait – what?

Filed under: Cloud, Hosting — solutionsthroughit @ 12:33

Cloud services, or hosted services are great.  IF they fit your business model.  The IF is the major drawback to cloud or hosted services.  Moving your entire IT infrastructure to the cloud can make sense.  It’s great, because you can access it everywhere.  However, if you’re doing video or graphical editing (even powerpoint/PDF document editing), this can introduce lag and delay when working this way.  If you’re printing large documents regularly, you can experience performance issues.

Simply put, you need to treat this as an infrastructure upgrade, and do a full review, with trials and testing.  You simply can’t get a call from Telstra Enterprise BPOS Services and switch over to the cloud.  Do your research, engage a professional.  If you don’t, you could simply be one of the many others who didn’t plan correctly.
