Cloud Computing

Cloud computing, also known as on-demand computing, is a kind of Internet-based computing where shared resources and information are provided to computers and other devices. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources. Cloud computing and storage solutions provide users and enterprises with various capabilities to store and process their data in third-party data centers, relying on sharing of resources to achieve coherence and economies of scale.

Will your db performance match your db growth?

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

I can not remember how long this problem has existed, but I did upgrade my cell phone from iPhone 6 to 7 a few months ago.

I enter a new contact into Contacts on my El Capitan MacBook, but it never shows up on my iPhone. I make sure to select the

"All iCloud"

choice on the left side, under "iCloud"

What could be wrong?

Thanks.

I know how to copy my EC2 instances to another region, but how about the connected meta infrastructure?
Such as VPC, subnet, routing tables, etc?
Because just having the EC2 instances alone isn't really sufficient... any ideas?

If this is done using the API, that's ok as well.

What is the difference between Cloud Hosting and Web Hosting? Which one is the most suitable for business at the beginner level.

Paperspace coupled with Parsec gets me a really good cloud gaming experience for times when I'm away from home.  You can also skip Paperspace and just set up your gaming rig as a Parsec host (I don't because my current rig/connection isn't the best for streaming.  Also, I don't feel 100% comfortable with a potential backdoor into my system). AWS/Azure also work, but Paperspace is cheaper and a bit easier out of the box.

Hi experts!

I recently created a LinkedService in Azure Data Factory to copy data from an on-premises MySQL databsae to a SQL Azure database. I followed the walktrought guide in the official Microsoft Azure documentation. However, when I check the Pipeline I notice it runs with no errors, an small 5 min. duration, but none row copied. So if I got to the LinkedService definition I notice an error saying "Credenciales no establecidas" ("Credentials not set").

Any advice on what is causing this error?

Please check in attachments screenshots of the error, as well as LinkedService/Data Copy Activity definition and Pipeline runs logs.

Help will be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

Our company has remote offices that have legacy physical file servers providing local mapped drives to the local users.  As these servers are getting old and diskspace is reaching the limit, they are getting difficult to maintain.

If an AWS cloud server can resolve this issue, would you give me an idea of how?

I was thinking about having the users to save their data to Office 365 One Drive but it only ties to their personal.

Please advise.

Thanks.

What is SQL Server and how does it work?

What is SQL Server and how does it work?

The purpose of this paper is to provide you background on SQL Server. It’s your self-study guide for learning fundamentals. It includes both the history of SQL and its technical basics. Concepts and definitions will form the solid foundation of your future DBA expertise.

I am looking for a free cloud-based call center software such as Fenero. There is nothing wrong with Fenero except that they don't provide any support at all getting started unless you sign up to pay significantly and monthly.

In their comparison at the bottom of this page, http://www.fenero.com/, they mention Five9 and InContact as being more costly solutions. SalesForce is very costly and is out of the question.

We will be making outbound calls and doing emails.

Free or pay-per-call or pay-per-support incident would be a better model getting started than would a monthly option.

Assistance in finding a better solution for this would be greatly appreciated.

I'm using an Ipad to edit documents (99% of the time word files) via the 'Officesuite:Free office' app and saving it to the icloud.  I also edit those files on my PC by downloading them via a browser, editing them in MS Word and then uploading them again.

I'm having issues where it's very easy to end up with duplicate files either on the pc or the icloud.  Ideally I just want to edit the file directly in the icloud from my pc so removing the download / upload entirely and all the duplicates,  but I can't see an easy way to do this. Any ideas ?

Thank you.

As managed cloud service providers, we often get asked to intervene when cloud deployments go awry. Attracted by apparent ease-of-use, flexibility and low computing costs, companies quickly adopt leading public cloud platforms such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.

Hello,

We have a few AWI EC2 which after we login, it says the Windows is not activated.

They are  all Windows 2008 being created from legacy Windows 2008 servers.

Please advise if someone knows how to fix this.

The local Windows FW has been disabled.

Thanks.

Hello,

I have setup a full AD on AWS and able to join EC2 instances to the domain. However, i need to promote an EC2 instance as a domain controller to host the licensing server for RDC. i am currently unable to do so as the AD user accounts do not have sufficient privilege to promote a server to DC.

is there any way of doing this?

FYI...My account is brand new, not and old EC2 classic.

I noticed in the console under security groups, you can filter between VPC SG or EC2 SG. However, I don't see anyway to create a VPC SG, only EC2 SG (and you select which VPC you want it in).

I thought there was only EC2 SG, and NACLs? Is there explicit separate VPC SGs or something I'm missing?

Hi, I have a Azure Data Factory setup with a Pipeline that connects a MySQL on premise database to a SQL Azure database.
So, the Pipeline is setup with a Copy Activity that has a frequency of one day, setup as a RelationalSource, and in the query of this copy activity I pick up the records that were modified the date of one day before, something like:

select * from myschema.mytable where last_updated_date >= TIMESTAMPADD(day,-1,now())) as signed)                  

However, what if the service doesn't run during one or more days, for any reasons, how can I copy from the last record that was copied into Sql Azure?

This very well could be and/or end up in the gigs section, but i need to collect some more information - education.  

I have an access database that, put simply,  tracks real estate comparable sales (data/pictures) , ties it together with a subject property,  and then outputs a report....

I wish to recreate this database so that it will be able to be access by multiple people in two - possibly more locations.  I've been reading up on Google Cloud - various flavors of SQL and think it can be done, but it I am more willing to pay someone to do this rather than learn something new...  I do however need to understand why choosing solution is A is better than solution B.

I saw a webinar on Datta and the ALTO 3 device.

I am always investigating backup and recovery solutions for small groups of computers.   The device seemed interesting.

Is this a good and reasonably priced solution?


Thanks

We have a business requirement to provide a one-way sync of data from an external source.

For example, an external contractor would like to move data into the network however, we cannot allow data to leave the network. Dropbox is typically two-way and we would like to secure the environment to make it one-way.

All suggestions, recommendations are welcome!

I have hundreds of excel spreadsheets.

I use google drive to store these and they are also on my local PC drive.

Question: Is is possible/easy for me to store this data in Google drive (cloud) ONLY.  I would be happy to only have access to the files when I have internet connection.

How can I achieve this?  (Note that I must be able to use microsoft Excel)

Thanks, folks.
