It's the little things

Right now our Microsoft migration schedule is hung up on backup licenses. Backing up clustered servers requires extensions, which we didn't notice back when we priced out the project. It is things like these that make for cost-overruns. The long and the short of it is, we're not migrating anything until we can legally back up the new environment. Period. That's just how it is.

As most of the budget arm-wrestling happens above me, I only get bits and pieces. Since we don't spend our money, we spend other people's money, we have to convince other people that this money needs to be spent. I understand there was some pushback when the quote came in, and we've been educating about what exactly it would mean if we don't do this.

I understand the order is in the works, and we're just waiting on license codes. But until they arrive (electronic delivery? What's dat?) we simply can not move forward. That's just how it is.
