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.

Sorry, I just can't get my head around one drive vs. one drive for business for small / soho / single users.

ODFB has much more granularity for permissions, right?

If it's a 1 man shop.  They have office 365 business premium, which includes 1TB of ODFB and he wants to keep his files synced across his 3 desktops / laptops....  which does he use?

If there's less than 5GB of files (so the free onedrive is an option).  OD? ODFB?  If you choose OD in that case, what if he has more than 5GB of files. Pay more for OD space (that's an option, right?) seems a waste since he's already paying for 1TB of ODFB.

I hear about how ODFB is powered by sharepoint. Does it matter? Again, just wanting to keep files in sync for just himself across 3 devices...

Cloud Class® Course: Microsoft Windows 7 Basic

This introductory course to Windows 7 environment will teach you about working with the Windows operating system. You will learn about basic functions including start menu; the desktop; managing files, folders, and libraries.

We are looking to pilot a cloud file sharing solution comparison test and I'm wondering if anyone can help me with their experience and what success criteria should we use ie. how do we know this is a success or not?

Some ideas: Preview capability, mobile functionality, security, synchronization, versioning, collaboration.  What else am I missing?

I am being tasked by my IT Director to research the steps that we need to do in order to start the CLOUD office 365 migration. I am being tasked to find a simple way of migrating or moving our users to the cloud. We are thinking of using MFA, but we found it more complicated and we have the current situation with our exchange that we need the fastest way of moving people to the cloud. We already have the office 365 account setup.
My questions are:
-      What should I do first in order to start the process? Are there any checklist that we have to follow?
-      We don’t want to use MFA at this time, but we might add it later. What should be the fastest method of authentication that I can recommend?

Experts,

In regards to a cASB, if let's say this company has 10 SAAS apps behind their OkTA IDP, and Okta integrates with CASB-X.  Does that mean that CASB-X will have visibility into all 10 apps?  Or will CASB-X still need a way to integrate with each of the 10 SAAS apps?

If you're having problems where a lot of messages that Cisco Cloud Email Security would normally filter out have been coming in, it appears to be the result of an upgrade gone wrong. In our case, it took a P1 ticket to get resolved.


We found evidence of an issue by looking at the incoming mail policies (accessible by going to Mail Polices > Incoming Mail Policies):



You will notice that the Anti-Spam, Anti-Virus, and Graymail columns are all showing "Not Available". That is because they are all disabled. These all need to be enabled to get things working normally again.


When we accessed the Cisco IronPort Anti-Spam settings, it showed that it was globally turned off. (This can be accessed by going to Security Services > IronPort Anti-Spam).



However, we were completely unable to turn anything on, regardless of access level (I'm a Cloud Administrator, but my coworker is an Administrator).


The cause of the problem: Cisco upgrading our appliance, and it turned out the feature keys somehow got blown out. In setting them back in, there is a requirement of accepting an End User License Agreement. Somewhere within this area is where Cisco failed to properly handle things.


Resolving this required creating a ticket with Cisco (initially a P3 ticket, which eventually got escalated to P1). If you're seeing yourself with this exact same issue, know you're not alone. Hopefully, Cisco fixes this for all of their CES customers in one swoop, but just watch out for this just in case. 


This problem started this past Friday morning for us but has just gotten resolved as I'm creating this post. While getting the ticket resolved, I highly recommend requesting that Cisco adds an email address from your organization to Atlas so that you're notified of when upgrades are planned to take place.

Experts,

This question is on the technology of Cloud access security broker and no specific vendor.

All the vendors claim they can protect against this scenario:
User downloads file from their sanctioned business Microsoft onedrive. User then uploads the files to their personal one drive.

Assuming we are talking about CASB vendors that do not have an agent and only an API connector, how is it that they can protect against this scenario if they do not have any visibility into the personal one drive and no agent on the client computer?

Hi,

I was navigating through my files on Dropbox.com using my Windows 10 Pro PC.

I found that after clicking on an image file I uploaded, I could switch between all my images with arrow keys.

However, this does not work for other files such as videos, PDFs, text files, etc.

I would like to for example, click on an image file and then use arrow key to switch to next file which could be video file, PDF, etc.

Is there a way of switching between all my files in Dropbox with arrows keys without having to back out of each file?

Thanks,
Robbie

Hi,

I have a Windows 10 Pro PC.

I have my Google Drive folder on my Windows 10 Pro PC synced with my online Google Drive.

I created a folder in my Google Drive folder on my Windows 10 Pro PC and the folder is not showing in my online Google drive.

What could be the reason for this and how can I resolve this?

Thanks,
Robbie

I've used gmail/googleDrive : it's free for 15GB per account: the upload speed
is great too from my country.

However, I have about 6TB of videos & my USB HDD running out : the videos
are not critical/non-sensitive but I may decide to watch them, say once every
3-6monthly.  

Q1:
Dropbox free storage is still 18GB?  Is it's upload/download speed great?  I
tried to use it but Dropbox app won't install on my Win XP.  Is Dropbox's
upload speed comparable to googledrive & does it require SMS to be
sent for password reset?  

Anything else with say up to 1TB (I could create 6 such accounts to make up
for 6TB) free & yet with great upload speed like googledrive?

I've tried  degoo & one china online cloud  (http://yunpan.360.cn/  and
hrrp://huodong.yunpan.360.cn/xt) in the past but I don't like their
upload speed : virtually 'hangs' when trying to upload GBs of data.

Degoo has an app that caused problem to my Windows too.

hi,

I'm looking to setup a trigger alert service based on images from an ip security camera. I want to alert if some objects are present during a specific time window. The objects are bins, the time window is during the night, and i have put reflective material on the bins so you can easily see the marks on the IR of the camera, see attached.

example ip camera image
I could use iSpy to set this up, but i'd like to use a google script running the check. i can pickup the images with a google script, so i "just" need to be able to perform a check on the image. In my case the average brightness within a specified rectangle of the image would be enough info. I guess i need to call some kind of image processing tool for this, as i'm probably not looking to do all the coding from scratch.

Any suggestions? I'm new to scripting with google so any example code would be great.

Many thanks

Hi, All.

I want to migrate my Esxi VM from on promise to Azure cloud. I've found solution which provides it to me. Microsoft Virtual Machine Converter, provides migrating to Azure Cloud.

During migration procedure application wants " Subsciption ID and Certificate Thumbprint".

I have found generating certificate link from Microsoft. : https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977336/configure-an-azure-management-certificate-so-that-microsoft-virtual-ma

After generating certificate, i've added it to Azure cloud > Management Certificates. I've also added this certificate to my Personal and Trusted Root Certificates.

But when i'm tryin to connect it gives me error.

How you ever seen this error ? Or maybe do you know any solution for handle this issue ?

Please help me understand the difference between scalability and elasticity as most people use these terms interchangeably. As far as my opinion is concerned I find difference between the duo.

I can call scalability as the ability of a system to scale up or increase the workload in its present hardware. Whereas elasticity is related to deployed-on-cloud applications and it involves dynamic addition of hardware resources as per demand.

Am I correct with the  difference? Can someone help me out with examples so that I can draw accurate point of distinction between these two terms?

A business owner I consult for is looking for website or program to manage 15 credit cards so that he can receive up to the moment info on each individual credit card account such as the credit card balances, minimum amount due, payment due date, etc.

The website, cloud solution, or software program will be able to query each credit card website using the usernames and passwords that have been created for each account to get this information.

What kind of solutions are available to do this?

I would like to recognize sounds within an audio stream.  For instance, a doorbell.
Basically it would be the equivalent to using OpenCV to identify a face within a video stream.
So I am looking for the equivalent of an OpenCV library for audio (rather than images/video).  Or perhaps some cloud-based solution -- although I have not see anything on AWS or Azure.

Nice piece of information contains in this article.

We have to know about the latest trends in IT before going to know about Cloud Security in details.

Is it possible to customize the "look and feel", layout, etc for Amazon AWS's SAML Federation Landing Page?

https://signin.aws.amazon.com/saml

When we signin to our company "federation page" it redirects us to "https://signin.aws.amazon.com/saml" (as it should), which displays all of
our AWS accounts/AWS Roles to sign into. However, it's ugly and not really organized/categorized in any way (so you have to always scroll up/down
to find the account you want or do a "Ctrl-F").

I know we can customize our first landing page (company federation landing page), but can we change anything for the redirect/second SAML landing page?

We use Skype for Business and it's in the O365 portal.  Our Exchange server is on-prem and our AD is on-prem.  All we use the cloud for is the S4B licenses.

We are noticing that some users don't have pictures and some do.  It's random, and, they use to have pictures.  It's odd and I've been tasked with trying to find out why random users don't have pics.

For the most part, users upload their pics thru OWA and that's worked fine.  

Does anyone know where I would start to troubleshoot this issue?  Do I start in the cloud?  On-prem?  Outlook?  AD?

Just looking for a good starting point from someone who has seen this before.

Thanks

I would like to check if data at rest encryption is turned on in my Isilon cluster.

From what I have read Isilon does it automatically with the use of SED (Self encrypting drives).

Is my understanding correct?

And how can I check if the drives on my system are self encrytping?

 

Also if we setup cloudpools then how can we make sure that data will be encrypted on the cloudpool side as well?

We are thinking of using cloudpools to archive data to a third party provided storage service.

The third uses Isilon cluster on their side as well to provide storage for use with cloudpool.

I have read that if cloudpool is being used with another Isilon as the archive location then no cloudpool license is required. Following article says "The CloudPools license for using either another Isilon cluster or EMC ECS will be free to customers." :-

What’s New in Isilon OneFS 8.0 | GeekFluent

Also, one of the EMC documentation mentions the same thing.

 

But the third party vendor is saying we need the license and the config options for cloudpool are greyed out in our system.

Please advise if this is possible without the license requirement?
