I am heavily considering moving my company's messaging system (back-end) to the cloud. Namely to google apps.
It is a lawyer company with around 30 employees. We have a Small Business Server 2003 and Microsoft Exchange 2003. We do daily backups. We use software that depends on the Microsoft Office pack - This can not be changed.
The reason: We have maxed out server capacity, it can not be upgraded further, and we are running out of space. Buying a new server is going to cost a lot of money.
Therefor, I am considering to scratch Microsoft Exchange server and move the messaging system to Google Apps. For the end-user, there will be no change at all, as they will continue to use Microsoft Outlook.
My question is, do you think this is a good call? what is your own personal experience with Google Apps, and so on.
I'd like a lot of feedback.
