Our communications department does a lot of video, podcasting and graphics. We'd love to move them to the cloud to facilitate more access when they're traveling and to reduce the load on our servers. But video never seems to transfer upload well. We're on EFM and are nowhere near are limit, but the files seem to hang when we upload.
Are there solutions for handling large file uploads. I'm not up on this enough to feel like I can give them a difininative answer.
It relies on the internet to work and there are still way too many issues that need sorting before the Cloud can ever be considered as useful, despite what the Marketing Types insist is possible.
Agreed, internet connection is a huge issue but there are many others. When we discontinued our Rackspace Hosted MS Exchange after a year, my OL had over 600 "Synch Issues" in its log. Because of the "Lite" version sold as a full Exchange we suffered much more. Dozens of features stripped like the inability to use Categories AND stripping out all your User Defined fields--which we learned much too long after the conversion to get our data back. Moved back to local exchange 2 months ago and not a problem since! As much as we researched and asked questions it never occurred to us that basic Exchange functionality would be stripped out. Make sure each and every feature set, down to what you think is screamingly obvious, is included before you make the switch.
