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.

We're currently storing data on Office 365 cloud and looking for redundancy, so far we tested Cloud Ally and it's hard to tell how well it's working. My personal feeling is it's too light, meaning it doesn't provide enough feedback of current status especially larger folders. Just says, "backup in progress" and nothing else. Depending on the folder size this can last for days.

I'm not concerned with running my own calculations to determine when the backup should finish. I'm looking for software that will do this for me or I would just FTP sync the data myself.

Question EE, what have you used for cloud to cloud backup and why?

Thank you

We have a connection to the Internet and now we just added another Internet connection. We want to use the new Internet connection just for Office 365. I am not sure how to go about doing this as I have a default route from my core to the FW and then from the FW to the provider router. So currently all Internet connection, including O365, is pointed to the default route and there is nothing going out of the the new Internet connection.
We have a physical connection from the provider to the FW, then from the FW to the core switch.

Any thoughts? Thanks
I have one Azure VM which exist in a different region to our other Azure VM's and  is not connected to our vnet.

I have to get data off the data disk.

Can I mount the data disk VHD  blob directly in a Windows 10 PC? Can I mount the blob across regions to an existing VM?

How s can I get the data across to our main vnet?

Hi Support

I've been using Dropbox for years, the 1 TB account and I think it's great.  I have some clients that use Google Drive and they think it's great--until lately.  One of the users deleted a bunch of random files in many different folders.  Being familiar with Dropbox, I was thinking that it was going to be simple to restore these deleted files from the trash.  I would just go in there (past the meatloaf from last week, egg shells, etc) and sort the trash folder by date deleted or date modified and restore the data back to its original location. Apparently, it's not that simple.  The trash is all mixed together.  It has a "last modified" and "last opened" column option but there is no chronological sorting when those options are selected.  Please say that I'm missing something here.  I googled, "google drive restore by date deleted files" in hopes to find someone else that had this issue.  I found an old Google productforums page and the conclusion by the Google Drive tech was, "Thank you for posting and sorry you're running into this issue. The only way for you to restore files on specific days is to do it manually."  So, no sorting in the trash?  You must restore the whole thing and then sort through it?  I checked out Dropbox again and I see that you can sort the deleted files by date/time deleted.  Please let me know if you have some experience with this or if Google Drive is not a good option.  Thank you!

Hi everyone,
Does anyone know how to preserve snapshot tags in AWS. This node.js function moves the snapshots to another region but does not preserve tags so it becomes difficult to identify which server the snapshot belonged to.
If I cannot preserve tags, I would like to know how to tag a snapshot using the javascript code below. Example Key:DeleteOn Value [currentdate]
I found this code snippet that may be of help:

 // Add tags to the instance
   params = {Resources: [instanceId], Tags: [
         Key: 'DeleteOn',
         Value: 'current date as 2017-12-05'
   ec2.createTags(params, function(err) {
      console.log("Tagging instance", err ? "failure" : "success");
//define variables
var sourceRegion = 'us-east-1';
var destinationRegion = 'us-east-2';
var AWS = require('aws-sdk');
console.log ('Loading function');

//main function
exports.handler = (event, context, callback) => {

    //Get the EBS snapshot ID from Cloudwatch event details
    var snapshotArn = event.detail.snapshot_id.split('/');
    const snapshotId = snapshotArn['1'];
    const description = 'Snapshot copy from ${snapshotId} in ${sourceRegion}';
    console.log ("snapshotId:", snapshotId);

    //Load EC2 class and update the configuration to use destination
    AWS.config.update({region: destinationRegion});
    var ec2 = new

By reading from many unnamed sources I understand that the per-hour fee of Azure Windows Server instance includes Windows Server license and Client Access.

Now lets say that I spin up a Windows server instance into my subscription, install AD DS role(s) and join my customers workstation to the new domain. (Something Something network/VPN/etc. related in between) My customer has access only to the services from the server and has no knowledge or access to the underlying virtual hardware.

Obviously the server instance is licensed (me as the owner, ...right?) and my own Client Access should be set, but is my customers Client Access covered as an user/external user?
I am confused about when and why to run many contianers in a single task? or should be one task and one container ?

what is the logic for this?
We have an old ERP solution that only runs on a 32-bit server. Currently it is running on an old local Windows Server 2003 R2 with Service Pack 2.

I believe Windows Server 2008 was the last "server" product that Microsoft released that was available as 32-bit. As a test, I built a new server VM running 2008 but my ERP solution didn't like it at all. So I deleted the VM. (It was still 32-bit so other than the fact that 2003 is EOL, there was really no benefit anyway)

I'm not really interested in upgrading the server that the ERP solution is running on because (1) 32-bit is limited to 4 gb ram and (2) as I mentioned, the 2008 instance was a bust.

What I AM interested in doing, is moving this VM from my local server to a VPS or a cloud hosted solution.

Web hosting companies like A2 Hosting or Rackspace, etc ... they DO offer VPS hosting but they come pre-loaded with Server 2012, which means it's 64-bit, which means my ERP solution won't run on it. And since these are not the types of hosting plans where I can BYOOS (bring your own OS), it's not a solution for me.

Is there a way for me to take my VM (prebuilt, running Windows Server 2003 and my ERP already installed) and just "upload" it somewhere?

I don't know much about Azure but from my limited research, it appears you CAN spin up your own Azure server instance and during the deployment, choose your own OS.  The problem is, since Win Server 2003 is EOL, it's not one of the OS options that you get in the …

Onenote on Windows PC.  Onenote on Android phone.

Can turn off sync to the cloud in PC version.

Seems like I have to create an account to use Onennote Android.  After I do this, is there anyway I can sync between the PC and the phone but prevent the phone from syncing to the cloud?


My OS is win 10 prof 64 bit and I have the Office 365 suite.  From time to time there are some very informative articles or solutions on EE, and I would like to ask the Experts what is the best way to save them to read them offline.  For instance how do I save the article on Risks of Bitcoins - Don't Get Virtually Mugged by Terry.  And of course there are links in the articles to other articles which I would want to follow thru.  What is the best practices for this.  Thank u for your inputs.

We have a sharepoint user that is used to dragging excel documents to his site and later opening them and modifying them. His files have been getting larger. He recently noticed that files over 10 MB do not open and give him the humorous error I included in the attachment.  I sure there is a simple setting in Site Settings or somewhere on the page that I can modify to increase document sizes that can be opened. Would someone be kind enough to point me in the right direction.
