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.

We recently revisted migrating to Mobius.

  • There is no local server hosting.
  • It is limited to consumer only.
  • We frequently get news flashes that there are problems with the current Open-I Cloud solutions.
  • Performance is worse with Exchange 365 than locally hosted Exchange 2013 (that we previously had). 
  • Integrated products, Open Attach working with Outlook and thefore MS mainframes has been frustrating and cost us a lot in productivity.

We might revisit this in two years time. I doubt I will be recommending it as the way forward at that time.

a full OGI buffet

 

LOL 😆 - I've heard their software called somethings, but never this!

 

Anybody who is an entrenched OGI User would find Mobius falling short in lots of areas methinks and tbf - it's not meant as a replacement.

 

I was told once, the answer to the question "what are the differences / what are the gaps?" was met with "It's irrelevant - they are different".

 

Not sure that approach would ever win over any existing Core user

It was initially fired across our bow as a full replacement, something that would address all the shortcomings of Tripos + Java and Open-I would be phased out in a few years. Those few years have already come and gone of course.
