do you go with a live@edu type service for pupils who are well versed in webmail anyway. Easy sell to the userbase in that instance. And the point about retaining some apps/services onsite is also valid, a seperate onpremise mail system for staff could be more manageable and provide enough control or provide a sufficiently reliable offline model.
Fit the application to the deployment model, that's what cloud computing means to me.....not put everything on the cloud, just as VDI doesn't mandate that you put every app in the server room. It's just not feasible.T
here will still be a role for the in-house IT staff, but if your smart you'll go with solutions that let you effectively manage server and storage sprawl. vmware, storage virtualization, dedupe, d2d. These are technologies that help an administrator keep his role not threaten it. But even with the best, most efficient use of these new features, some apps may still be better off in the cloud.
