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.

Hi Experts,

I am a final year diploma student of Computer Engineering. Currently i and my team are looking for title for our final year project. We need your recommendation of our final year project. The topic is about network management, network security, embedded system, IoT, or cloud computing. Do you have any good idea?

If you don't mind, please share your ideas, suggestion, or experience.

Thanks in advance

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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 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.

Hi Team,

I just opened an Azure account in order to use the Storage Account for the Cloud witness option that is now build into Windows Server 2016 Clustering. Since I'm new to Azure, I'm not too familiar with pricing and I'm running on a 30 day trial. Any ideas how much this will cost per month to keep after the trial expires?
The type of storage created for this purpose uses standard performance and LRS replication.

Thank you.

I am considering making training videos which at some point may have a price attached to them. So, I am not keen on hosting these on YouTube.

What options to do have for private hosting?

Is it logical to consider using my WordPress site, where I already have WuCommerce up and running?

What is involved in video posting? Are there various WordPress plugins I cans use that would make this easy?

This is hosted on AWS. How do you calculate the cost of this kind of service for bandwidth?

What if I have 10 views per day and the video is 30 minutes long?

What might that cost for the month?

Thanks

I want to build up my knowledge & skills on Cloud technology.

I've got myself an Azure account and signed up for the free trial. I've also got myself a Windows 2016 VPS. I've also just setup my first (for me) client with Office 365 Business Essentials.

Years ago when I was learning about PC networks and Servers & email, I'd get 3 servers and run up a few NT domains, setup MS Mail & Exchange and get that all talking to each other, check mail flow and so on.

So what's the Cloud lab equivalent of that sort of thing?

I'm sitting here wondering, what's something really cool I setup that I could actually use in the real world?

The Azure training & intro videos say, you can set up Databases, test apps, run up Containers and so on, but I mainly support PC, file sharing, File Serving, email type clients, any databases or apps take care of themselves.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hello Team,

I'm in the need to create a witness server for our failover cluster in AWS. I will need to join this witness server to the domain and I'm not sure how to go about this in AWS. Would i need to have a domain controller in AWS or can I just join it to my local domain that is not in AWS?
If so can you please provide some steps.

Thank you

Hi All,

I have a client that would like a cloud solution for all their company data (word, excel docs etc) no databases or anything. They would also require folders to have relevant permissions set.

Their emails on are Office 365 but we don't want to use OneDrive due to the limitations on the file Sync Limit for each user, plus they don't want to use the web version of OneDrive to access the data.

We don't want the users to access a cloud server via remote desktop connection as the cost for office and user CALS would be a fortune.

Can anyone recommend a solution for the kind of setup, they would have around 60 plus users accessing the data from office all around the UK.

We would also want a secure connection to the cloud system, i.e. vpn for each user. We have been told about the RS models of the Synology range?

thanks again
Ryan

How can I setup my MacOS Sierra v. 10.12.6 to save its Time Machine backup directly to my Box.com account?

Box.com is an online storage account that I am currently subscribed to.

I would like to map my Box.com storage account so that my Mac will store its Time Machine backups within my Box.com storage account.

How can this be done?

Survive A High-Traffic Event with Percona

Your application or website rely on your database to deliver information about products and services to your customers. You can’t afford to have your database lose performance, lose availability or become unresponsive – even for just a few minutes.

How do you store documents in the cloud and yet make them encrypted such that everybody can get to them,  iOS, Mac, Windows PC, Browser Window.

Cloud Mounter on the MAC has the option to mount most cloud services with Encryption but I a not sure how you would access the file from an iPhone or PC.

I am about to launch a WordPress/WooCommerce site but worry about around the clock support for my site since my developer's in India, Monday thru Friday.

That's about 25% of the week! That being said, I would expect the bulk of sales to be on Eastern Standard Time, 8AM to Midnight, which means his coverage percentage is higher that 25%.

Are there are support models you can think of which would be me paying some small retainer for a WP developer to be on call and getting notified if there is a hiccup or site outage? Then, if there is real work that's needed, I'd pay on an hourly basis?

Curious...

Do I need to be worried at all about the site have problems which could cause it to be unavailable to process further orders?

I am not worried there may be a one in a hundred error rate which I can resolve when the email comes in, but instead, having a site outage causing orders to stop.

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.
