Cloud offerings are here to stay, but there are a few details people tend to miss. Do I have control over how updates are installed, do I get to install patches I need for my software (like Epicor), or do I have to go through them.

One company I worked for we had the “cloud” company sign confidentiality agreements and let us have control, they basically made sure the hardware worked. There are places that would never consider that, but you just have to research which ones will.

EC2 and Google's offering, https://cloud.google.com/compute/, are along the same lines. I looked at trying something like this but I don't know how I'd ensure security.

Hello,

My testing server for E10 is showing definite performance improvements over E9 but the hardware is not as robust as our production E9 server, which will become our E10 server.

I really want to get a feel for how E10 will run on a server equivalent to our future production server but I don’t have a spare one laying around.

Does anyone know of a company that rents servers?
I did a Google search and found a couple but I was wondering if anyone else has done this and who they used.

How would a cloud based server work with regards to E10.
I’m assuming it would all be remote and the I would have full access to install whatever software I needed but then would have to do a remote session to demonstrate client performance?

Basically is a virtual machine in the cloud and depending on your setup you would either run it through Remote Desktop to demonstrate performance or use some of the networking tools amazon provides to connect directly to it from your local machine. Though I guess if what you are looking for is realistic performance I would just RDP into it and run the client through that. That way there would be very minimal ( 0) network latency between the client and the server.

Confidentiality agreements….that is how you ensure security.

 

Cloud offerings are here to stay, but there are a few details people tend to miss.  Do I have control over how updates are installed, do I get to install patches I need for my software (like Epicor), or do I have to go through them.
