I do like that Azure is integrating Linux.

The datacentre does sound amazing.

However, my top concern is that OGI can not guarantee a connection between our offices and the datacentre. (Understandably not feasible).

 

If you had iGels / dumb terminals that connected directly to the cloud and your firewall, switch or internet connection has a fault then you could end up being completely unable to do anything until it is resolved.

 

Personally, I always want the most redundant solution; local servers synchronising with cloud.

Great points made - and welcome to the Forum!

 

I’ve done a few loops round many a boardroom table on the cloud vs local debate. As you rightly point out - you can have as much redundancy as you want in the Datacentre - but what about accessing it in the first place?

 

As you mention, if you only have 1 firewall / switch / leased line / then there’s a point of failure inbuilt. Just because it’s “cloud” doesn’t mean to say it’s “Safe”

 

And let’s just overlook the whole local and remote SLAs to go with any architecture.

    • I don’t believe so as very specific criteria has to be set each time a purge is ran (at least in Live). Purging also has separate stages e.g. you have to purge ledger & diary before an actual policy/client record can be removed.   For all I know there may be an overnight command for Prospect to purge quotes/prospects ‘marked for deletion’, however we review these first as anyone can press Esc K (and maybe doing so for the wrong reasons).   Bottom Line, I feel nervous purging when doing manually, I would not like the idea of records disappearing from the system each night etc.  Sorry, I’ve not been much help!
    • Hi I know there is a module in OGI for record purging is there any way that this can be automated does anyone know?. I am keen to have any information about this.    Regards Mar
