Michael Klein 5 August 2018 14:09:27Had a recent discussion with a colleague who needs to upgrade / migrate some 10+ servers to newer OS releases.
Quote: "We cannot get a new server unless we decommission another one."
All host systems are full with VMs and there's not even a tiny rest of hardware resources for a new VM. And: there's a complete stop on hardware purchase.
I know that his company uses MS O365 for 2+ years (5k+ users) now but Azure cloud is still something that is "in evaluation" (but potentially "strategic") leading to a situation where there cannot be growth:
- no new servers can be installed on-site
- no new servers can be installed in the cloud
Sometimes, corporate decisions do not make a lot of sense...
