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.

I have a customer that has a very small environment with 1 windows server with AD on it.  (about 10-15 users and most of them remote).
They don't have the funds for a second DC, currently, i have backups of file level and am using windows server backup for image backups.  
was thinking about this scenario  but wanted to run it by the experts to get their thoughts on it:     would like to create an Active directory server in the cloud that can, 1. sync with the onprem AD (so we have a copy of ACTIVE Directory in the cloud).   or 2. sync once a day while firing up the cloud server to allow syncing and then turn it off---to save on cost--incase cost is an issue.   3. have a scenario where the remote users can authenticate and not use cached profiles (besides using vpn).

question on the above scenario:   I'm sure Im not the first one thinking about this scenario---wanted to get your thoughts on how you guys are handling it for small businesses.

Industry 4.0 is no longer new to us, but I would like to know a bit more on its implementation in real world case studies.

For those really had implemented (or going to implement) Industry 4.0 in their corporation's network, what things to focus and how the corporation adapt it through the whole transformation process.

Can you share your experiences in Industry 4.0 implementation?

Feel free to comment and discuss, thanks.

I have a public API endpoint that I am pulling a json file every 30 mins. Right now I am using a python pandas dataframe to pull and upload the file to a cloud storage bucket and then sending to pub sub to process and place into BQ. The problem with this is that the file name stays the same and even though I have  gcs text stream to pub sub if it reads the file once it never reads it again even though the file attributes have changed. My question here is can any one help me with code that will pull from an api web link and stream the data directly to pub sub?

Sample code below:
import json
import pandas as pd
from sodapy import Socrata
from io import StringIO
import datalab.storage as gcs
from google.oauth2 import service_account

client = Socrata("sample.org", None)
results = client.get("xxx")

# Convert to pandas DataFrame
results_df = pd.DataFrame.from_records(results, columns =['segmentid','street','_direction','_fromst','_tost','_length','_strheading','_comments','start_lon','_lif_lat','lit_lon','_lit_lat','_traffic','_last_updt'])
# send results to GCP
gcs.Bucket('test-temp').item('data.json').write_to(results_df.to_json(orient='records', lines=True),'text/json')

Hi, need help to create 1000 VMs to map with direct network ID from python script to call API but it didn't well.

Direct network error: private cloud contains network[1c948756-db50-4871-b03d-d911ecdcae16]', 'code': '400'}}"

Virtual Private Cloud no issue but just can't ping the IP from Python Script being created but when using UI to create and point to the direct network is okay.

Where can i find the right API call to query the direct network ID?

You see click on the below link to download  from google Drive to view the creation process for better understand.

I have a potential customer that is using ERP software that was developed in the late 70's/early 80's and will only run on Windows NT.

Does NT exist in the cloud environment and would I be able to image the current machine and spin it up on a virtual?

HTML5 and CSS3 Fundamentals

Build a website from the ground up by first learning the fundamentals of HTML5 and CSS3, the two popular programming languages used to present content online. HTML deals with fonts, colors, graphics, and hyperlinks, while CSS describes how HTML elements are to be displayed.

I'm trying to transition from a Sys Admin to Dev Ops by getting training done first. Does anyone have recommendations for GCP training. I have seen plenty of Azure and AWS but no current GCP training that was created within the past year or so. I'm already taking courses on Experts Exchange, CBTNuggets, and PluralSight. They training stuff they have it fairly outdated if there's anything at all and I'd prefer to keep it on the cheaper side since I'm already paying for 3 other sites as it is.

Thanks for your input,

Hi Guys,
II need to delete an individual backup Items from Azure recovery services vault. The backup management type is "Azure Backup Agent"
Azure backup ItemsCould you explain how this can be done?
The only methods I have found online is to remove the server as a protected server. However I do not want to remove all backup items from the server
Backup Infrastructure-> PROTECTED SERVERS-> Protected Servers (Azure Backup Agent)-> XXXXXXX> Backup policy

We had a problem come to us NETENG where some hows in an Amazon private VPC stopped communicating with an Amazon hosted public elastic IP address. The issue appeared to self-resolve after a time. But the question is - who is one supposed to log and investigate this kind of outage? It seems you'd need to have monitoring within the VPC that was banging against the public IP address/elastic IP all the time at the port/URI intended. Are there any tools built into AWS that would let you monitor availability of an AWS public service from the perspective of EC2 instances in your VPC?

I'm assisting with the re-deployment of an online store that gets a few thousand visitors a day, lots of traffic.  The problem is, the current hosting seems to have issues.  We lose DB connection, slow performance, etc.  The store requires a dedicated server.  What are the best hosting options?  Should the hosting be cloud based?

Hey all, we are getting rid of our on premise DC which has our file server on it as well and move to the cloud completely....the question is how to handle our file server in the cloud.  

I see two options:

1) Use azure files....I know it doesn't have Azure AD integration yet but I am ok with that since you can still do some sort of permissioning.  But is there a way to deploy the mapped drive automatically to Azure AD and/or Intune users?

2) Use a Server 216 server in the cloud and put the file server on it....the problem is that I think it has to be joined to Azure AD-DS...and go over a site2site vpn which would be pretty slow.

Another question that I have is…if we implement Azure AD-DS….and join an Azure VM to Azure AD-DS, does that make Azure AD useless and unusable?

Do we need a site-2-site VPN tunnel between Azure and our offices to use Azure AD-DS?

How would our client desktops/users in the office access the Azure VM and authenticate if Azure AD-DS? Do we have to join the local client machines to Azure AD-DS or will our Azure AD accounts (tied to our O365 accounts) still work?
