Bloody Frog! We own the server & the warrany expired!??!
Something that wasn't passed onto me during the purchase of our Frog VLE (3.5 years ago) is that the server provided was in fact our property and were are responsible for it's upkeep! When we purchased Frog we were told that the only on going cost was £3800 /pa for support. Well, if buying a new £5000 server every 5 years (if you purchase additional warranty from Dell) and paying frog to migrate it isn't an 'On going' cost what is?!
Urrrgh! I guess we don't have to renew the server but I don't want to run an important server outside of it's warranty!
OK I thought, can we virtualise the frog server? FROG: Yes it'll cost £5000 (the price of a new frog server!) What a rip!
Anyone P2V'd a frog server :) (just can't think of a way to virtualise the ILO)
