Frequently Asked Questions

Solution Builders is Here to Help.

Should we migrate to a private cloud solution, or should we consider a public cloud solution?

In our experience, there are two driving factors when considering private cloud or public cloud. The first one is the nature of the data you are storing. If you are storing highly regulated data, such as PCI, HIPAA or FINRA data, it may sway your decision one way or the other. The second is budget. Private cloud is far more costly both to deploy and to use on a regular, ongoing basis.

Should we still be running our on-premise Exchange server?

We can think of very few scenarios where it makes sense to continue to run an on-premise Exchange server. Office 365 is a very robust and mature solution and, in fact, we haven’t deployed any on-premise Exchange for over 8 years now.

Can I easily convert my on-premise servers to the cloud now?

We would not classify any cloud migration as “easy”, but with the help of an expert partner and a lot of planning, most cloud migrations of moving servers to cloud services go smoothly and meet the goals of the business.
