My reasons for doing it this way is that it will be highly resilient for our business and will be a lot easier to scale up as we need it to. This is an overkill setup for what we are running currently but I can see us becoming more dependent on self hosting as it is cheaper than using the cloud for random things we need to run. I have already spun up servers for monitoring, helpdesk, and backups. All would have not existed had I not had some old servers to play around with.
