I would be happy to get your feedback on a Small Offices Consolidation project I am starting.
I am looking into moving servers from small offices that don’t have local IT people into main remote datacenters
1. offices are connected by MPLS lines.
2. offices have local wan acceleration devices
3. offices have servers like , DC, DNS, DHCP, Print, File, Backup , Small local apps
Can you guys share your input if you have this scenario up and running on your place and let me know what technologies are you using in order to be able to serve the above from a remote site over WAN.
I rather have all spread over two main datacenters and not start taking stuff to the cloud or build extra third datacenter.
I have been looking on cloud storage gateway solutions , that are giving me only solutions for the local backup/restore but not so the consolidation itself
VDI & Terminal solutions are not what I am aiming for
