Choosing best business server 2019
Our organization is in the process of decreasing server footprint to retire old services/programs and move production servers/databases into Microsoft Azure. We hope to get most everything virtualized into Azure, but we will need to keep a server on premises for quickly spinning up solutions, testing, and another conduit for backups. We plan to use it as an Exsi host. While there are other tools and software to move a virtual server from one host to a Cloud-based host, wanted to get a server that is better geared to that sort of thing and ability to adapt as new tools come forward that blur the lines between Cloud and on-prem virtual servers. So, question is, what suggestions do people have for that situation? Keeping in mind we have about 600 employees and are a Non-Profit, so budget has to be considered. Thanks.
