Windows Azure - For Schools - way to go or not?
My son's a SharePoint architect working on contracts from home. He was recently telling me that he has switched to Windows Azure to run his work out from. He has 2 virtual DC's set up on it and a heap of other stuff (My SQL etc.) and it does the job very well for his needs.
At work we are a small KS3 Special School for boys who have various difficulties. we have a heap of kit but haven't ventured down the road of virtualisation yet - I can't get my head round Migrating our E-mail system so going virtual in any way is way ahead of me!! That said it got me to thinking we have a now getting toward old DC running Windows 2008 Standard server and a second newer DC that's running the R2 version and hosting the MIS so I need to be planning toward the future and wonder if I ought to be exploring something like Azure as an option?
