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.

We have 3 windows VM's in a data centre in london
recently they  have had issues and some down time, so we are looking at migrating to azure, however i'm very confused about pricing and which products i need
I've tried 3 seperate sales calls to microsoft, and no ones calls me back after the initial call

I'm hoping to get advice here, let me list what i have first

VM1. Web server (windows 2016 server) running IIS with 4gb ram
- I've read i dont need a dedicated vm to host an asp.net application, can anyone suggest what i need?

VM2. DB Server - sql server 2016 with 24gb ram
- I'm confused by azure sql server vs sql database and I understand a dedicated vm running sql server will be expensive, so would rather a sql server 2016 instance which will host 2 DB's (or 2 instances)
the 1 db will be small, the other will be large (its currently at 100gb and growing)

VM3. Gateway - this vm runs 5 console apps (exe files) and needs access to microsoft message queue, it has 6gb ram and a good cpu and it crunches data continually

can anyone help me with suggestions on what to do / have for the above instead of 3 azure vm's which will be expensive

Hello Experts,

I have run a hql called samplehive.hql, see attached. However, the script fails with the following error:

FAILED: ParseException line 1:2 cannot recognize input near 'D' 'R' 'O'
18/01/17 20:46:46 [main]: ERROR ql.Driver: FAILED: ParseException line 1:2 cannot recognize input near 'D' 'R' 'O'
org.apache.hadoop.hive.ql.parse.ParseException: line 1:2 cannot recognize input near 'D' 'R' 'O'

I'm very new to Hadoop Hive, can someone take a look at the script and let me know where I'm going wrong

Thanks

As I have mentioned in one of my previous questions, as a business were are now procuring more and more cloud services.  
I’m trying to examine our procedures and governance to make sure that we procure cloud solutions that are fit for purpose and secure.
One of the controls I have thought of is to have a central repository of our cloud providers as we already have numerous different suppliers and I don’t think as a business we have one go to document that shows the provider of the cloud solution hosting our data, an emergency contact, location of data etc etc.  I have been reading through best practice guides and frameworks but I can’t see anything that suggested that this is something that should be implemented.
It seems like a good idea to me but can anyone point me in the direction to any best practice, frameworks, guides etc that support this to take to management as a bit of backup.
Is it something that is done in your own businesses?
Are there any real benefits to this and are there any risks to not implementing such a control?

Unless of course you feel this is not a worthwhile control to have in place, in which please feel free to say.

I’m about to start some work looking at how our business procures cloud services.
We are a large business with many different departments and an in-house IT team.

We already have some of our systems hosted via SaaS and these have followed correct procedures in terms of ensuring data is appropriately secured etc.  
My concern is that some departments might be going off and procuring cloud services with no input or support from IT.  This obviously poses several high risk issues, especially when you consider some of the data may be private, confidential or commercially sensitive and as such needs to be carefully controlled.

I have two questions:
1)      How do other businesses mange the procurement of cloud services to ensure that appropriate security and governance issues have been considered and how can you control this to ensure that individual departments can’t just go and do this themselves with no IT/Business input.
2)      How can we determine if we have any data out there in the cloud that we are centrally unaware of and that have had no corporate input.  I’m thinking of analysing our finance system to determine if any payments have been made to cloud providers, this might not be easy as not all providers have obvious names.  Reviewing our contracts registers to identify any cloud providers.  Reviewing corporate credit cards for similar to see if anything has been purchased on credit cards.

The aim of this is to ensure there are suitable frameworks/procedures/policies…

Hello,

I am new to Hadoop.  I have a question regarding yarn memory allocation.  If  we have 16GB memory in cluster,  we can have least 3 4GB cluster an keep 4 GB for other uses.  If a job needs 10 GB RAM, would it use 3 containers or  use one container and will start using the ram rest of the RAM ?

hi

environment:
terraform v0.10.7
google cloud platform
various .tf files for creating backend, variables etc

issue:

i am able to create multiple vm instances and also multiple additional disks (boot_disk is working fine on each instance) but I want to be able to attach those additional disks to each vm accordingly without having to have individual resource adds for each vm (if that makes sense!).

the code I have so far is (which works ok for building multiple compute instances and also multiple additional disks): note (I have commented out the attached_disk which errors atm)

*** START ***
# vm1.tf

variable "node_count" {
  default = "3"
 }

resource "google_compute_disk" "test-node-1-index-disk-" {
    count   = "${var.node_count}"
    name    = "test-node-1-index-disk-${count.index}-data"
    type    = "pd-standard"
    zone    = "${var.zone}"
    size    = "5"
}
resource "google_compute_instance" "test-node-" {
    count = "${var.node_count}"
    name = "test-node-${count.index}"
    machine_type = "${var.machine_type}"
    zone = "${var.zone}"

    boot_disk {
    initialize_params {
    image = "${var.image}"
    }
   }
#    attached_disk {
#        source      = "${google_compute_disk.test-node-1-index-disk-(count.index)}"
#        device_name = "${google_compute_disk.test-node-1-index-disk-(count.index)}"
#   }


    network_interface {
      network = "default"
      access_config {
        // Ephemeral IP
      }…

I am currently setting up a training room where I want everything to be automated. I have door style windows on a slanted roof that currently needs to be opened manually. The problem is that the windows are very high, and it is not practical to try and open them manually.

They are side hung escape windows with wooden frames and dimensions 660x1180mm.

I want to convert the windows so they can open automatically, preferably using a remote or voice commands using my SmartThings hub or Amazon Alexa. Would this be possible?

Would you be able to guide me to the type of window opener/actuator that would best suit my window and what else I would need to get to be able to use my SmartThings hub or IFTTT event triggering.

Any solutions would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Robbie

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.

Hello team,

We have created a vpn tunnel (VPC) from our physical office to Amazon. The tunnel is active but I can't connect to any of my Ec2 machines using the private ip address. Is there anything additional that needs to be done in the amazon side to make this work? I'm not sure if there's a firewall or something I will need to configure as well.

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 ?

Hello,

I do have an application which is migrating to a cloud infrastructure. What is the best way to ensure the identity of this application can be asserted? In a physical machine, I could bind the application to either a static ip or the os user combined with the machine name. Since this will not be available in a cloud node, what is the alternative?

thanks!

Once the basics of running Python-based Hadoop jobs are covered, I will illustrate a ... Recalling that the map step transforms the raw input data into key/value .... scripts work without errors, we can plug them into Hadoop.

Hello Fellow Tech Experts,

I thought MS OneDrive was a great option for backing up client files until the advent of ransomware.  Now with the threat of users' files being encrypted and then uploaded instantly to the cloud, OneDrive is seemingly a broken strategy.

The struggle I face is trying to preserve the files of my clients who typically use laptops.  These people can't be persuaded, cajoled, or encouraged in any way to simply plug in an external HDD once a week to back up their data.  Nearly every one needs/uses MS Office, so initially having them subscribe to Office 365 Home with it's 1TB of cloud storage seemed to be a match made in heaven.  

But ransomware destroys this scheme.  If it had archiving built in, then it could possibly work.  But AFAIK, it does not.  Does anyone know how I can possibly make this work?  I've thought of zipping up all of a user's OneDrive files and uploading that to a folder that doesn't synch - but I am not certain how to do this automatically.  Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Hi all,
I'm looking for truly unbiased (but intelligent) company(ies) who perform cloud assessments.  Specifically, the assessment I am seeking would assess the current IT situation, review both physical data and interview personnel, then present a findings report.  The report would describe the current IT situation, proposed cloud solution, and challenges to achieving that cloud solution.  Challenges would need to consider the expense from both CapEx and OpEx, transition expense, meaning migration, and educational expense of training.

I believe a third-party company needs to be able to provide this type of analysis, since customers cannot make the unbiased view.  I also believe a third-party company cannot offer its own cloud services since their analysis would be biased towards their service offerings.

So, anyone know of any company that provides such a service?
