Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a collection of remote computing services, also called web services, that make up a cloud-computing platform  operated from 11 geographical regions across the world. The most central and well-known of these services include Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud, also known as "EC2", and Amazon Simple Storage Service, also known as "S3". Other services include Elastic MapReduce (EMR), Route 53 (a DNS web service),  provides a highly available and scalable Domain Name System (DNS) web service, Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), storage, database, deployment and application services.

Hi Experts

Could you point a strategy to access a DB that remains at AWS cloud by using Visual FoxPro?

The reason it to reuse an alrealdy developed app to do that.

Thanks in advance!
We have a site hosted within an AWS instance and we have been tasked with applying a security certificate to the site.
I have an existing wildcard certificate that has been purchased from Godaddy.
Using AWS Certificate Manager I am trying to import the certificate but i'm unsure what the remaining process is.

In AWS Certificate Manager i am using the Provision certificates option.
I choose 'Import a certificate' to import an existing certificate instead of requesting a new one.

Under 'Select certificate' i'm asked to enter three fields:

- Certificate Body
- Certificate Private key
- Certificate chain

Which of my ssl certs that i downloaded from Godaddy need to be cut/paste where?
Much appreciated
I have understood the concept of using AWS Autoscaling but How to use autoscaling on aws for dynamic website(frequent code change & frequent image updation)?
I have a number of Windows machines on Amazon Workspaces. They are Virtual desktops running on Windows2016 and using Amazon's Workspaces client.  We have created file shares on 2 users Workspace, but they are not visible to any of the other Workspaces.  All Workspaces are on the same IP Subnet.  We also have EC2 machines on the same subnet.  The Workspaces can see the shares on the EC2 machines, but not on Workspaces. The EC2 servers don't see the Workspaces share either.

We can see the shares locally.  I have turned off the Windows firewall and adjusted the security policy for the subnet.  All are in the same VPC.  It seems there is a wrapper around the Virtual Workspaces that is preventing this from working.

We would really like to have a folder on the Workspace shared out. It is Peachtree Quantum 50 Accounting and the files really work best when they are on a master machine and shared vs being on just an Server share. I want to avoid having to build an EC2 just for having the server agents.  We run into other issues putting Peachtree on EC2.
I am getting an error after uploading a Theme to Wordpress hosted on AWS.  Has anyone seen this before and know how to fix it?

Can't connect to AWS! Check your credentials and make sure your AWS accout is active!

I know account is spelled wrong.  That is how it is spelled in the error.
I have established two VPN connections in AWS from an environment to a third party Cisco VPN firewall.  Everything is set up as it should be, but we are unable to bring the tunnel up.

I a nutshell, we have established two independent VPN connections, with each on going to a different datacentre.  The configuration has been supplied to the 3rd party agency who are managing an external service that connects through the tunnel to another agency.  The two tunnels are set up as Active and DR tunnels, but will carry the same traffic. in the event of failure, and then our traffic is NAtted twice to reach the destination.

We have tried a number of things but still unable to get the tunnels up from either main or DR datacentre firewalls.

The problem seems to lie in the tunnel configuration; apparently there is an issue with using SLA monitors to keep the tunnel up from the Cisco side; obviously without this the VPN connection will drop.  The information I have seen seems to imply we need to setup a "route all" tunnel at the customer side and then employ static routes to get the right traffic down the tunnel to the firewall - which will cause major issues as our VPC supernet overlaps their networks; also we only want to allow 3 machines on two subnets through the tunnel.

Our other problem is how the VPN failover will work for the DR tunnel.  They are monitoring and will automatically fail over to the secondary VPN tunnel should an issue occur with the primary datacentre …
How DLP should be implemented in various SaaS solutions?

A bullet point response would be great.

Hi, I have a MS SQL Server running in a data centre and I would like to move it into a new SQL Instance running on AWS EC2. I know i can take a backup of the DB and restore it to the AWS Instance but i was wondering if there were any other options for migrating the database to the new server. I know AWS have a database migration tool, just wondering if anyone had had experience using it ?
Can you use Direct Connect to reach an AWS public IP address? We have a service that is critical to
our business that's reached via the Internet. There were some intermediary routing problems and
we couldn't reach it for a time - long latency and packet drops. Since we already have some
Direct Connects to AWS for getting to our VPC - I wondered if there was any way for me to
route traffic destined for publicly facing services with public IP addresses to be reached via
the direct connect circuits instead of the less-guaranteed Internet. Thank you for any insight.

Cisco ACI (SDN) API for integration with cloud management platform, google cloud, AWS or etc for my coming project?

My Explanation for your kind clarification:-

1. Uses Cisco CloudCenter Manager user interface or REST API or OpenDaylight APIs (REST) on Northound. Below is the simple diagram and full explanation from Cisco

2. OpenFlow 1.0 / 1.3, OvenVSwitchDB (OVSDB), Netconf/Yang, BGP-LS, PCEP  to programmatically change the configuration of a network device to enable communication on southbound (plug-ins)

3. Network services APIs: Java

Apologies if I'm out-of-line posting this kind of question... and I looked in EE to see if I could find a "Community" forum for off-the-wall discussions... (There used to be one, yes?)

But my question relates to investing in NTNX stock.  Cheerleaders of it say that it'll be huge - but I can barely even find out what they do, aside from the bland descriptions relating to simplifying cloud deployments... Is it a platform like AWS or Azure?  How is it so revolutionary?  Has it got a solid future?

Please feel free to point me to another forum if needed... just not sure where to start here with this question... or whether to pursue it at all on EE.

Hi All,

I have created a Powershell script that processes a CSV and add tags to Azure and Aws resources. I have one script for Azure and another script for Aws.

is it possible to create a CI pipeline on visual studio team services or Jenkins, team city etc so when a CSV file is updated with new values and is committed it will automatically firewall the Powershell script and add the tag values.

The enterprise network environment is evolving rapidly as companies extend their physical data centers to embrace cloud computing and software-defined networking. This new reality means that the challenge of managing the security policy is much more dynamic and complex.

How to download awscli docker image  (I try docker run awscli it ask password without that is it possible)

How to download mariaDB docker image  (I try docker run mariaDB it ask password without that is it possible)
I currently have 20 WordPress Sites with, and my goal is to migrate OUT to another service.  I am looking for recommendations for another service and any HOWTO's that might make this transition easier. Here are some parameters I have with Blue Host which may cost me much more with another provider.

Currently with Blue Host:
- Annual cost LESS THAN $200/year, and last was $99
- Unlimited site hosting... Note I have 20 wordpress installs currently, no extra cost
--  mysql DB service
-- CPanel admin interface, okay to use something else
-- SSH access
-- "Unlimited Storage", I currently use ~ 2GB of file store, and less than 500MB of DB storage

_- I do have an AWS account I can use, if that's the most cost effective... thus this post... I am having trouble with the cost effective part. Please note the current cost I put above.
