System Center Configuration Manager in the Cloud?

    Question

  • Hello,

    I am looking for documentation on SCCM in the cloud. Few years ago it was recommended for small companies but where are we now?

    Our environment is 1500+ servers, 10000+ desktops

    Thanks,
    Dom

    I'm not sure if I'd call 1500 servers and 10k desktops as "a small company".  :)

  • Note that Intune will not support that many devices and does not support server OSes at all. Also, ConfigMgr itself is not supported to run anywhere but on-prem.

    What are your goals and/or motivation for asking?

  • Hello,

    What do you mean by "does not support server OSes ate all"? does it mean no inventory? does it mean only few OS will be supported? Windows Server 2008 R2 and above?

    Goal:

    - Minimize the hardware infrastructure in premises.

    - Due to the numerous hardware failures with the servers on premise checking for another way to provide service with less maintenance.

    Thanks,

    Dom

    Hello,

    We are not a small company :) but looking if after 2-3 years the cloud has progressed and will address our expectation to replace physical hardwares and data centers...

    Thanks,

    Does this mean I should not go to the cloud? :)
