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 trying to find out what are my best bets to setup a cloud facing server (AWS, Azure on any other "reasoanble" provider)  that would have a number of public IP and a VPN to my local network.
At the moment we have an internet connexion with /29 static IP space but this is getting a bit "tight" and is also fairly costly from our ISP.
I think we should rather use a cloud server and tunnel the traffic to our local connection (possibly keeping a few local IP as contingency).
Our requirements:
  • 8 static Ip with some "easy" way to grow if / when needed
  • IPs in Europe
  • 100 Mb symmetric connectivity (we don't need more) with say 1Tb traffic/month (probably significantly less than that)
  • possibility to set up an IDP/IDS on / around the box (as an extra option)
  • obviously good price and reliability
What would be my best bet in setting up this (both in terms of the underlying OS and provider)? I was thinking of running a pfSense VM in AWS but I happy to read your suggestions

Hi all,
We were removing/deleting a VM from the vRA portal but it kept stuck in Disposing status for a couple of days, after that the VM got deleted from the vcenter and it's no longer in the portal as well, the problem is that there are no request history logs for this action in the administration section.
What could be the cause for the request log history to be missing?
Is there any other place where I can look for the request log history of this VM?

Hello all, I am new to using AWS, I have experience using it but have not gone full throttle.

I am trying to set up an existing S3 bucket to not allow deletes from a user that does not have MFA.  I have seen some examples on how to do this but found them to be a little confusing.

Does anyone have a clear example for a dummy like me on how to set this up?

I am getting an error 0x8007016A The cloud file provider is not running.  It is a folder that was from a OneDrive account on another computer and the hard drive was put in a new computer.  The folder seems to have "Everyone" permissions for everything.  How can I take control of this folder as I need some of the data out of it? (It isn't Selective Synced as the folder is over 330GB)

Hi Guys,
Hopeing i can get some good advise here and assistance.  I started at a new organisation and the current landscape needs some major refits.  The management would like to establish a hybrid between onprem and Azure to move some mission critical apps and data but im relatively new to Azure compute so would like some advise on the best way to do this and what i would need to include Below is a breakdown of current layout

- Internal MPLS with internet break out only had HO (HeadOffice) 1 and HO 2.  All traffic is directed to those to offices for internet as thats where the firewalls are currently located

- All sites have local servers that act as domain controller and File and print.

- Majority application servers are located at HO 1 and HO 2

- All email is already in o365

- Current Azure subscriptions are basically islands. They are not connected to onprem network in any way at all

currnetlayout.PNG.


What we would like to do is

- Remove current mpls and change all sites to SDWAN with VPN connection to each other and Azure
- Migrate all file/print data from local site level into o365 Filestorage/Teams/Groups/Sharepoint
- Maintain bare minimal servers in HO 1 and HO 2 such as local domain controllers and possible one or two applications that need to reside locally for compliance purposes
- Extend our current IP addressing into Azure and add all current server in Azure onto onprem domain (Joined)
- We would want access to sub Azure …

I have 3 locations with each site has their own domain/DCs (Separate Forest).
1 location in hybrid with Office, Other 2 locations are in Gsuite.
Now I need to move everything to one tenant in office 365.

a DevOps coworker deployed an application in our environment (I think it’s called an application) in GCP but apparently it needs to be restarted and they left the company.
So I am not a GCP person by any means but I am trying to help since I’m in IT so apparently I must be “the guy”. Sucks.
I know they said it was in Kubernetes. I have admin access to GCP.
It’s not a VM. If I click Clusters, we have 1 cluster.
If I click Workloads, I see the name of the product (we’ll say it’s called BeanCounter).
If I click BeanCounter from workloads, I see 1 managed container pod, and 2 exposing services (1x ingress and 1x ClusterIP).
Is this what I restart?
I tried going into Cloud console and if I run commands to list anything from app to container list it shows 0 items. So I’m not sure what to look for and restart.
Is this making sense to anybody??

Hello,

We host an application (Moodle 2.9) as follows;
Aurora RDS for database
Cloudfront + ALB + Traget Groups (Linux m5-large 4.14.123-86.109.amzn1.x86_64) + mounted EFS for data. Load average of the EC2 instances jumps to 2+ during high EFS activity.

In the EC2 instances; CPU/MEM utilisation is below 20%
EFS percent i/o limit around 10%
Plenty of burst credit available.

Where could be the problem?

Thanks

Hi,
I have a GCS bucket setup which receives images and media files.
Ideally I would like to have a live sync between this bucket and a G-Drive account without the need for a local download first.
As a compromise I'd be willing to consider a scheduled solution instead of a live link. So if a new file appears on the GCS Bucket it is copied to the equivalent folder on the G-Drive.

In both cases I only want the sync or transfer to ADD new files not mirror the bucket and objects. Also which ever solution is best it must be a direct link between the two as opposed to a solution that downloads the objects locally before uploading to the G-Drive.


Hope that all makes sense but please let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks

What is the optimal way to use Dropbox?

Only being a very occasional user of Dropbox, there are some users in an office here that seem to be struggling with it! (Yes, I'm baffled too as to how
such a simple app could cause confusion...)

All users on Windows 10 laptop clients.

Small MS Office files

For starters I'm guessing, it's best to have the APP installed on the PCs?

Does any Serverless Framework/Platform support a multi-cloud deployment? Meaning deploy the same API to multiple cloud providers. Can it be done with load balancing?

Migrate Exchange Server 2016 from onsite to the cloud.
We currently have onsite a domain eg abc.xyx.com running onsite. On this site we also have running an Exchange Server 2016 that provides emails to the staff. The problem we are having is that its now working out too costly to run the exchange server onsite as the server needs to remain operational 24 hours a day. We have some storage space in the cloud to add 1 server. I have added a vmware server to this space and now want to host 2 virtual servers.

The local subnet mask is 192.168.1.0/24
The cloud subnet mask is 192.168.2.0/24

The local site to the cloud is able to communicate no problem via a  site to site vpn.

In the cloud will be the following 2 virtual servers.

1. A secondary domain controller.
2. Exchange Server.

The secondary domain controller has the ip of 192.168.2.1/24 and is replicating no problem with the local dc that is on 192.168.1.1/24

I want to now setup the new exchange server and am not sure on what to do. The plan is to setup a new exchange and then move the mailboxes from the current local exchange to be pushed to the new cloud exchange. I will then look to demote and remove this local exchange so that the only exchange is now in the cloud.

The local dc will remain as the plan is that this dc will switch on during the daytime during working hours and then shutdown at the end of the shift along with a local storage server.

We are unable to find a common cause of these CPUs maxing out.  Seemingly random users utilizing multiple and single Remote Desktop instances, some have been idle and some lock up while working.  Once ending task/process, CPU returns to normal and the connection can be re-established with no issues.  Until it happens again.

Servers are hosted in AWS using EC2 instance.  
15+/- concurrent sessions on server at once.
Applications vary but mostly DocStar, Chrome and Outlook.
All workstations are on latest WIn10 Pro version and updates are current.
Sophos Endpoing on server and workstations

We've checked system/application logs on both server and workstation but no warnings, errors or log entries appear at the time of freeze up.
