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.

Please suggest me a ticketing tool.

I Want to create a free, online, ticketing tool forum for my apartment where 90 families can log requests.

Online (or mobile) users can check the status of a problem. Suggest and track a solution and close it.

Periodically a report can be pulled. It should be simple and easy to use.

Hi Everyone,

I have a customer that has two locations, and I'm looking to do a shared cloud storage drive mapped as a drive letter to each computer at each location.  I'd much prefer if it could be done via windows login script.  I don't need any certain file permissions, anyone can have access to everything on the drive.

Originally I had looked at Azure file storage, as it was exactly what I wanted, but it doesn't work on Windows 7.  I'm looking at opendrive as they have a webdav, but I'm waiting to hear from them if I can embed the username and password in the login script to map the drive automatically.

Computers are a combination of Windows 7/10, a server 2012 r2 server in one location, and server 2016.  

Both have fast internet access, but there is no vpn connection between them.  

Does anyone have any suggestions or something easy I'm missing to accomplish this?

I have a small client who is requesting a NAS unit however with a good cloud service that allows seamless synchronization so he can access his files from the cloud in case the NAS becomes inaccessible, anyone here with good success to tell?

Hi Guys,

My client needs a program to collect data and generate some reports, I will use MySQL and VB.Net 2013.

The program will be used from different locations, so I was thinking to setup the data base on the server and install the program on the server too, then they can connect to the server thru Remote Desktop ( I now, this depends of the number of licenses on the server)

On the other hand, install the program on each computer and setup the data base on a cloud, but I've never used this option before and I'm not sure if is a good idea.

That's what I need you advice guys, is there a better option?

Thank you in advance!!!

Hello all,

My 1 TB Dropbox PLUS subscription is coming up for renewal and I am seeking a less expensive cloud storage service.

I should say that my only two issues with Dropbox are:
- Price - especially since I wish to upgrade to 2 TB of storage.
- That I must use Boxifier (3rd party add-on) to sync multiple folders from multiple locations.

I especially love Dropbox because:
- It's excellent web interface.
- Version control (I can instantly recover a file or files from any time within 30 days).  

Recommendations Found

From https://www.cloudwards.net/comparison/, I found the following alternatives:


All appear to offer the features that are most important to me. Any other recommendations and/or endorsements for the above three choices?

Thanks,
Shawn

We are currently trying to implement a security (SIEM) monitoring solution for Azure IIS Cloud services.  I would like to know if there's somebody that has implemented monitoring for this service.  I want to make sure that is Cloud services and NOT web apps or IIS on a VM.  There are some fundamental differences between these three services in Azure.  Any working examples would be great.

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

Hello All,

Good morning. I would like to see if I could receive any feedback on different cloud backup applications that allows collaboration, file sharing, FTP services, and syncs between PC's such (OneDrive, DropBox, etc.) We currently are exploring with OneDrive which performs all the functions, but with separate accounts created. Our thrust is to utilize a services that allows multiple users to apply changes to files, store information, while syncing the updates to the users workstations. I appreciate any feedback from anyone who has used or currently users different services that accomplishes these task or provides more functions.

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?

Is there a way to have Azure AD off-prem but having  sync data in-house?   Just in case Azure goes away or legal issues with MS etc.  Currently not having AD domain controllers in-house, and want to keep this way.  Don't want to introduce complexity in-house for that reason.

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

I have about 30 000 files which are a mix of jpg, png, mov, mp4 and potentially others.  Total size is around 70GB.  I've collected these into a single folder structure and left an upload to google photos running, and then used the desktop uploaded and left that for a week to upload any that were missed.

Now, I'm not sure which have uploaded successfully and which haven't.  The 'log' created during the upload is not helpful when working out which files haven't uploaded.  I've done a download of the photos from google photos through their backup system.  However, I can't just windiff between the two folders as they have different subfolder structures.  I've tried doing an xcopy of files to a single folder but some of the files have the same name (although different dates) and I may miss out on file-extensions that I'm not aware are in the listing.

Does anyone have any ideas or scripts I could run to make the problem easier to solve, or to come up with the final list of files that haven't uploaded?

Dear Experts
I am using sales force automation sugarcrm and we are evaluating the CTI integration either the complete cloud telephony or hybrid, one of the service provider has this hybrid where they do not charge for inbound and outbound call per minute unlike the complete cloud telephony instead they will host their server may be PBX and that is connected to their data center but application will used is of their platform, and calls will be routed to us directly from telco both the inbound and outbound unlike the complete cloud where calls are routed from their data centre.
please suggest the best solution to go for, pros and cons please. thanks in advance.

Hello

I have tried a number of times to reduce the size of my EBS volume. I keep running into problems.

I am using Centos 7.3.1611 and Plesk (set up through Amazon marketplace)

I have managed to copy all the files over from the old server to the new using the instructions here (https://superuser.com/questions/1123799/how-to-decrease-size-the-ebs-root-volume-of-the-rhel-instance-in-aws) - as well as similar other guides.

The only difference is because I am using xfs instead of ext4 I was unable to do the e2label

When I attach the new volume to the instance as /dev/sda1 it does not load. I cannot connect to it using SSH and websites do not load.

I am at a loss now. I have tried so many times. I made a mistake making my initial EBS volume size way too big and it is costing me quite a bit of money every day.

I am unsure if the problem is because I am formatting my drive is XFS. This was the format of the original drive when I first set up the instance. I have not been able to find a guide that details how to shrink an EBS volume that is formatted in XFS, they are all for ext4.


If any one could provide some assistance that would be much appreciated.

So we have about 12 cameras at our company that records all day every day.The 1TB drive in the Platinum dvr gets full super fast and we are unable to retreive old recordings from a couple of months back. So i was looking at some unlimited cloud backup solutions like like Crashplan and Backblaze. Now Crashplan is good as it allows me to not only backup all files but also all mapped network drives. is there a way for me to access the DVR hdd from my file server and somehow map it to my server so the backup software can upload all the recordings? Any alternatives? Any advice would be appreciated:)
