Re: Is it comparable?
Sure, we don't know if it is comparable.
But I'm guessing from the article it's in a DC so things like a UPS are part of the deal.
As to redundancy, how do you know if they had that level of redundancy to begin with - it isn't just globally redundant by being 'in the cloud' anyhow.
You seem to think that the existing setup covered all the things you think he might need to spend money on, or have to spend money on later. I doubt it.
We're very much a small outfit by comparison but there is *no* doubt in my mind that we're better off financially and operationally by not being 'in the cloud'. It isn't even a close competition. It's the difference between 'we exist' and 'we would have run out of cash'
