Episode 154 - Migrating to the cloud

June 1st, 2017

We again cover off the latest Microsoft Cloud news for you and then we dive into a real world migration scenario. We spend our time discussing the best way to move a legacy server environment like Microsoft Small Business Server (SBS) to Azure and Office 365. There isn't a single path along this journey so we need to consider many things. That's why this topic is going to run into a few episodes no doubt, but here's the first one to get you started.
