My hobby might be building data closets, unfortunately those days have come to an end. Information technology real estate quickly evolved to a services oriented architecture.
As both HaaS and SaaS, Hardware and Software as a Service, matures, I find that not only are local file services becoming obsolete, but the entire application arena has up and moved to the remote data center.
Frankly, that’s where they all belong. My critical business applications on demand, any time, any place and on any computer philosophy no longer seems a dream but an every day reality.
I think I may not install any local servers anymore.
But, that’s OK; you don’t need them anyhow.
