They they can help you build a digital marketing plan with clear goals, documented methods for achieving them, and metrics that you can use to measure the ROI on each method. Otherwise, it's all too easy to spend money trying out a smattering of different methods without ever really knowing which, if any, actually helped.
True marketing is black arts, you can gather some metrics, but only a little bit. Because a marketing campaign today might influence sales next year with no direct connection the metrics can actually show things not working when they are, or lead you to believe that things are working that are actually driving away a lot of customers, too.
well, the initial export to PST failed. and i've already deleted the account from comcast. therefor i can't convert using outlook b/c it has to authenticate with the server that it no longer has an account on.
@scottalanmiller Seems like more has happened with Hyper-V in the last 12 months, than it ever has in development. I'll be excited to see what happens in the next few years, especially with RemoteFX and VDI (setting up some Raspberry Pi 2's from Amazon for $70, and Raspberry Thin PC download). Tried it out over this last spring in a VMware Horizon View environment, and all I can say is wow. That install has pretty much every remote protocol. You can harden the client by locking out the docks/settings/etc once you're all done setting it up. Not perfect, but nearly there.
That's an odd answer - especially given they are apparently introducing a new system with Hylafax.
That is not an odd answer. They have an existing VM infrastructure. Normal business do not look to change core infrastructure every time they look at adding a new VM for some task or another.
Asking if there is any compatibility issues is a very normal thing that has to be done with ANY system.
Answer the question that was asked without tossing in craptastical bias.
Want to toss in the rest of your opinion? Great! Don't lead with it.
Back to the OP's question. I have never ran any type of 2008R2 Hyper-V servers. I know that Hyper-V prior to 2012 had many issues compared to ESXi. Which is why all of my clients started out on the virtualization path using VMWare.
It's really boiling down to you only hire consultants to do research or provide options/opinions for you that are in your best interest.
Then you act upon those opinions with your own decision... that could be hiring experts... but those experts aren't learning the tech.. they are learning your setup.
No, that's not what we are saying. We are saying that every situation is unique, every one. Assuming that it is possible to hire someone with all of the requisite knowledge and experience isn't a good idea - it can't reasonably ever happen. Consultant ALL of them are the same as internal IT, they have to learn how the technology interacts in the specific instance. Learning is a necessary part of IT, always.
