Re: Just wondering
I've seen this cycle in customers already. Existing CIO had things humming nicely, gets lured away by better offer. New CIO hired with a "cloud first" mentality. Dumps on-prem gear because "it's really expensive to run at $1.5m per year" and moves all data and computing to AWS. 6-9 months pass and the economics of the AWS deal become apparent and the CIO flees in disgrace. Next CIO buys new on-prem gear and gets everything humming.
Lather, rinse, repeat..
