    I'm just adapting to the changing market. Years ago, we ran servers in house. Then we virtualized everything. Now we are moving towards containers (docker), on cloud based hosting providers like Amazon.

    As an IT guy, we have to either embrace these things or face lack of jobs and desired skills as this is where stuff is going.

    We are realizing at work, that Exchange 2013 is most likely the last on premises setup we will have. MS is making the 365 offering too appealing with features that will only be made available in 365. And they will continue to mark up the on premises price to the point where its not financially advisable to run it any longer. Office365 for business is offering unlimited storage per employee. I'm not sure how they can even afford to do it, for the price they charge..but they do it.

    Something I just read that basically say's keeping the data in house is just as safe/unsafe as the cloud:

    I keep all my backup hard drives in the vegetable crisper ... people generally don't think to look there, considering our obsession with fast food in America.

    I usually store my external backups in the CD racks at Best Buy.

    Floppy disks. Nobody in their right mind would think to look there, plus a couple of TB would probably require a 75710 the first 496-ton mining truck made to carry them away
