When You Know It’s Time to Break up with Your IT Infrastructure

There comes a time in a relationship when you know it’s time to move on. The honeymoon period is well in the rear-view mirror, and it just isn’t working anymore.

Things have changed. What was once fresh and new is now tired and dated.

Communication is stilted, poor or non-existent. Sometimes it’s like talking to a blank screen.

You feel like you’re going in different directions, and they’re holding you back.

You want to get out, see the world and experience new things, while they just want to sit on the couch and watch Netflix.

They break down often, leading to you trying to fix things, pleading, and cajoling them to move on. Things used to be so amazing. What happened?

It’s frustrating, exhausting and high maintenance.

Life’s too short to be stuck in a bad relationship. It’s time to move on.

Sound like you and your relationship with your current on-premise infrastructure?

It’s time to break up

As a business owner, you’re probably overdue for a review of your relationship with your private servers. Are you currently in a relationship with one of these?

Stuck in the Past Sam

I’m a blast from the past who just wants to party like its 1999! Swipe right if you have a big office and can dedicate looooots of ongoing support. Oh and my previous partners have said my performance isn’t up to scratch, but I don’t think so…

Once upon a time, on-premise IT infrastructure was cool. It was the latest and the greatest and who you wanted to be seen with.

However, it’s 2020 now, and your legacy (a nice name for old and outdated) infrastructure is showing its age.

It’s slow and struggling to keep up with the needs of your organisation.

And, frustratingly, there are some things it just cannot do.

Worst of all it’s accumulated a lot of baggage, which makes getting anything done difficult!

High Maintenance Harry

I’ve never figured out why my nickname is MIA, but it’s kinda cute. Might be slow to respond, but I always make time for someone who’s great at handling disasters. The only limit I’m good at hitting is the one on your credit card.

Downtime, once a rare occurrence, is becoming more and more common.

And being missing in action is costly, as is how much it costs every time it needs fixing.

You’re effectively trying to buy happiness with every swipe of your credit card – yours, theirs, the whole business – and it just isn’t working…

Ready for someone new?

While you’ve been worrying about your current relationship, you’ve probably been dreaming about what you’d love instead.

Imagine dating someone new.

Someone who’s intelligent, flexible, and driven – travelling the world and making things happen.

Their favourite colour is blue. Not the standard boring blue, but the beautiful bright blue of the sky.

Best of all, they’re perfect for you now – and long into the future.

It’s a match made in the clouds.

And will transform everything.

Well, dreams do come true, and there is an ideal match for you.

You just have to look up.

Ask out Azure

I’ve been told I’m intelligent, flexible and driven. But I just love getting out and experiencing the world. And there’s nothing better than cruising through the clouds with a fellow globetrotter. Looking for a long term relationship.
