If you don’t want to go down the road with new hardware anymore and realize when revising your IT environment that many services are already offered as cloud products, you should consider at least partially migrating services into the cloud. Especially standard office environments offer many possibilities. For example, running your own Exchange Server is redundant in most organizations and can be easily replaced with Office 365 or hosted Exchange products. Similarly, domain controllers, print servers or ERP systems can be moved to a private or public cloud.
Even entire desktop as a service, or infrastructure as a service offerings can now be covered by the cloud without security concerns.
If you don’t trust the cloud providers completely, you can also rent a completely new infrastructure. With providers like www.rent-it.shop, we can not only choose which IT environment we want, but also where it should be. As with cloud services, billing runs on a monthly basis. This gives us full control over the hardware and the location, but we enjoy the advantage of not having to advance the costs. This relieves the cash flow and, unlike leasing, we also have full service on all rented components.
