Cloud services are services made available to users via the Internet from a provider's servers. Cloud services are designed to provide easy, scalable access to applications, resources and services, and are fully managed by a cloud services provider. It is a model for enabling ubiquitous, on-demand access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources. Frequently offered cloud services are infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), desktops-as-a-service (DaaS), software-as-a-service (SaaS) and platform-as-a-service (PaaS). Examples of cloud services include online data storage and backup solutions, Web-based e-mail services, hosted office suites and document collaboration services, database processing, managed technical support services and more.

I'm a current office 365 subscriber interested in purchasing more One Drive for Business storage space (above the 1TB limit that I currently have) to store Veeam Server 2016 backups in the cloud.

What website resources are available that describe how much more it will cost to purchase additional Office 365 One Drive for Business storage space?

Great day experts,
I hope all is doing well. I was wondering does anyone know of any Cloud labs books or software that would give you a step by step that I can purchase?

Hi all

Working at school

I have request for primary school students to have access to emails but only be able to send internal and reciveve internal only. So block external emails alltogether

Heres what i have done,

Created a Universal distribution group in AD - Added the releveant groups to it i.e. primary school students

In office 365 created a new rule

- The recipent is located - Outside the organisation and the sender is member off (the distribution group i created in AD)

Do the following - delete the message without notifying anyone

After the above, i have been testing by sending email to a test student via my gmail account and test student can send emails and receive externally.

So seems like this is not working, any ideas?

one thing i noticed was in members of that distribution list, i am unable to locate the AD security groups, could this be the reason? my security groups seems are not automativally synced. I had to go in Attribute of the distribution list to make it sync to Office 365 not sure if its same for this

One of my clients brought up a question regarding becoming properly NIST 800-171 certified.

He had heard that in order to use cloud services one of the points of concern was ensuring that they were all hosted in datacenters in the US and not abroad. Apparently Office 365 Business has some parameters that allow you to ensure this is the case.

1) Anyone remember or know of this requirement?
2) And is there a way to specify in Office 365 to ensure its US based?

Thanks.

Apologies if I'm out-of-line posting this kind of question... and I looked in EE to see if I could find a "Community" forum for off-the-wall discussions... (There used to be one, yes?)

But my question relates to investing in NTNX stock.  Cheerleaders of it say that it'll be huge - but I can barely even find out what they do, aside from the bland descriptions relating to simplifying cloud deployments... Is it a platform like AWS or Azure?  How is it so revolutionary?  Has it got a solid future?

Please feel free to point me to another forum if needed... just not sure where to start here with this question... or whether to pursue it at all on EE.

Thanks!

I use to use crashplan which was amazing.

Then I tried IDrive, their software is really bad. gets the computer stuck .

Then I tried carbonite which they choose which files to backup, I told them I want to backup everything, they said it's not possible.

So which online backup provider do you recommend ?

Cloud security is a major issue and enterprises have to deal with it seriously. CloudCodes CASB solutions acts as that needed security link between the cloud and the enterprises. It helps them negate the data risks so that they focus solely on productivity. Okta offers SSO, Identity management, and some basic access control features, whereas, CloudCodes offers advanced cloud security. With efficient CloudCodes CASB solutions, enterprises can not only secure their sensitive data, but also achieve compliance challenges. The CloudCodes CASB solutions for cloud data security offered highly advanced, but not so expensive, whereas, Okta offers Identity solution, which is expensive. In comparison with Okta vs CloudCodes, CloudCodes CASB solutions offer a varied range of benefits and for sure it is better than Okta Identity solution.

Looking for suggestions on best cloud solution to support 5-10 users sharing about 1TB of data.  Would like for cloud to provide backup services as well as sharing services.  Will be accessed by Windows and MAC's for sure but perhaps also by IOS and Android. Would prefer solution with Canadian (Toronto area) based data center.

Hi,

I just started my 7 day Trial of Cloud Class and am looking for a course that I saw before Cloud Class was introduced.  It was about how to do things on a MAC that you can do on a Windows machine, but I can't seem to find it no matter how many search terms I've tried.

Can anyone point me to the video/course in question?

Hi Experts,

I have been approached by a group of 8 companies to provide for them an information exchange portal. Here they would store files, documents and posts, organized by category and sub category, and a bulletin board with latest news and events posted by the users.

The companies indicated that SharePoint wont’t work because the each have their own domain, and they need this solution to be independent from any of them. They also want to restrict each company to 3 users, and if another company wants to join, the admin of 3 other companies need to approve.

My question is - would this be a development project (I'm a PHP developer); or a sourcing project, where there is something pre-made that can be adjusted? What would a  bull park cost be for this?

Thank you.

i use aws-sdk for javascript to give user choice to enable/disable 2 factor auth for login. i have 2 issues: UI is capturing user phone and updates cognito phone_number attribute. (updateUserAttributes) First issue is with this stage, it updates the number but returns empty object instead of

{
    "CodeDeliveryDetailsList": [ 
    { 
        "AttributeName": "string",
        "DeliveryMedium": "string",
        "Destination": "string"
    }
    ]
}

Open in new window

Second, i am trying to send user a verification code with getAttributeVerificationCode with the following payload:

const params = { 
  AccessToken: auth.accessToken,    
  AttributeName: 'phone_number'
}

Open in new window

and i am getting "CustomMessage failed with error Cannot read property identity of undefined" error. Any ideas?

Thanks

Hello,
I am new to dealing with file server systems and hybrid solutions. My company was looking at a dell emc that was going to have functionality that would take files based on rules and push them to the cloud. This would leave a pointer in place so if an end user would ever need to do anything with the file they would not know it was in the cloud, it would just take a bit longer for it to download. Unfortunately this won't work in our position as the emc product would have to be used as a san or as a file server. We are using it for a hybrid approach.
I would like to continue to use aws for our cloud storage, but what is out there to automatically do what we are looking for? I know that you can backup data to the cloud but I would like to keep IT's involvement low as we are a small team for a larger company.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory
LVL 8
Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

We currently have about 1.7TB of archived files which is a mix of documents, AutoCAD drawings, photos, etc. all stored in folders.  They have been moved from the main file server to a NAS device, and have been backed up to tape.

Users do not access these files often, but do have a drive mapped to the Archives folder for when they do.  They might not go into the archives for a few months but they may also access it daily for a few days/week.

I want to move these archived files/folders to cloud storage, while keeping the files available for the users to access from a mapped drive on their workstation.  Users will need to be able to open, view, copy and paste files from the archive to the network or their local drive as needed.

 I do not want users to be able to modify the folder contents.

I will want to back up the archive when more files are added or have it backed dup daily like Azure does.

We currently use Azure to back up files on servers.  I'm not sure if Azure can store files for access by users.   There is not enough room on servers to store archives.

 Is SharePoint the best way to store archived files and allow users access to them?  What level of SharePoint would I need for 50 users?

Any suggestions are appreciated.


Thanks,
cja

We have a small business with 15 employees all using office365 and Onedrive. We have a mix of computers mostly Windows and some Macs. The users use OneDrive for storage. There are no servers and most users work remotely out of the office. The owner's don't want to avoid the traditional IT infrastructure and want to use the cloud since the want to keep things simple and run an slim IT . We had a issue recently where one user had deleted a few files/folders from OneDrive by mistake. I am an IT admin with good amount of onsite AD and Windows experience. Is there anyway of setting up and active directory / file server /domain setup using Microsoft Cloud? Not sure if that's even necessary or that if its too costly.  Also, I have to find a way of backing up OneDrive and also the Onedrive user folders. Suggestions and any directions are appreciated. Thank You,
