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.

I am looking for options for training and certification in Microsoft Azure. I have been looking on the internet for different courses and training programs and have come up short handed. Microsoft itself doesn't have a structured course/training program (that I could find), even within the partner network.

My goal is to find a structured course that starts with no knowledge and builds to the certification at the end. Preferably something I can do at night either on location or from home.

Can you guys give me some recommendations?

I have several VMs deployed in Azure.  We would like to add the Azure backup service.  Looking at the pricing calculator for the backup offering, you are presented with
# of INSTANCES
and
# of GB

Do we specify number of VMs, or can we select 1 instance with the total number of GB our VMs use?  Does that make sense?

Thanks.

Hello experts.  We have a web app that will be deployed in Azure, dev/qa/prod, on Windows VMs.  Does it make sense to install a domain controller on the network, for DNS and user management?  What are best practices around hosting a Windows web application in the cloud, with no on-premise integration?

1.      Each VM size comes with an associated disk.  For Windows Server is this C:\ or can it be partitioned into two drives?  If it cannot be partitioned, how do we add an additional disk to a VM using the online pricing calculator?

2.      The web application requires a filestore that is shared with a UNC path to all VMs.  Can this be achieved with ‘File’ storage type, or is a ‘S series Managed Disk’ recommended?

3.      The web app filestore will be 1 TB to begin, and requires the ability to grow over time.  Can storage be easily increased for both storage types in question 5?

Kind regards.  Thanks for your help, experts.

PowerShell Core for Advanced Linux Administrators
PowerShell Core for Advanced Linux Administrators

Understand advanced principals around Powershell Core with a focus on the Linux Administrator.  This course covers how to administer numerous environments across multiple platforms including Linux, Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud from a single shell instance.

I know that I can make free phone calls from Amazon Alexa Echo to another Elexa Echo, but what I want to research fromn my customers is the ability to uise a voice command to Alexa Echo to call a cell number or call a contact.

I want to research how this could be done.  

I'm thinking integration things like a combination of:
  • VPN's to some service,
  • integration with a Personal Contacts app such as Gmail,
  • Use of IOT
  • ITTT

Anything thoughts and directions to get me started would be very helpful.

Thank you,
Robbie.

Hi, some time ago I have cloned and installed this project github.com/openshift/openshift-ansible on the VMs where SELinux was disabled
And now I can see this doc openshift.org , where they say: Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) must be enabled on all of the servers before installing OpenShift Origin or the installer will fail.
So my question is how does Openshift play with SELinux? What is the algorithm of this play?

My vcloud director doesn't sync up with my storage G-1000 in terms of space. It has a lot of difference.
Example: One LUN shows 1 TB used among 2 TB. Vcloud shows 76 % full.
Any suggestions on this?

Thank you

We would like to try a few different hosted server providers based in the uk for hosting cloud servers for our small business clients eg 1 - 2 servers upto 100 users max. Most are 5 - 10 users though

We would rather use a UK based supplier and secondly one that is tried and tested.

Can you guys recommend any reliable providers ?

I have a customer with a small 2008 Windows server. She thinks going to the Cloud will be cheaper and easier that using a file server.
I've looked to Del for a non-server solution that will work for them. They couldn't come up with a solution using Azure. I looked at OneDrive for Business  and I think it has a file locking if 2 people work on the same file. Plus not sure how Quickbooks will work when it's in the cloud.
I looked at AWS and looks like same file locking issues.

Any solutions for an inexpensive Cloud replacement that allows mapped drives and doesn't need syncing?

We create all users in AD, however for certain staff who use laptops - we have to create a local account on the laptop so they can log in and work when they are at home. We link this local account to there AD account so they can access there file shares and everything when they come back into work and connect to our network. We currently use sync toy to sync files they work on at home to there network storage area when they re connect to our network.

What we would like to know is how we go about moving away from local user accounts so staff can log onto the laptop from home when they are away from our network using there AD credentials and not a local account as when they reset there password all the links break.

We have looked into remote desktop connections but the internet around here is too slow to allow that for staff. We have also tried the GPO option of storing cached user data - but that is a bit hit and miss.

If we went to Office 365 can we link staff documents that are stored on site into the cloud, so that any changed are replicated. Also can it be that when they log in with their AD account it links to their Office 365 account which in turn links to their documents stored on site here?

Anyone have any experience of AD pass thru?
 
Key Requirements are....
Be able to use same username and password at work AND at home
To be able to access there documents and are backed up regularly at work and at home
Cloud might be an option (but we have sensitive…
