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.

Hi experts,

I am planning to migrate bunch of windows 2003 servers to a cloud service. These servers host a Lagacy application and they consist of DCs, Exchange, SQL 2005,MOM 2005, Biztalk, IIS, and ISA 2005.


Is it possible to migrate the current group of servers to a cloud service. These servers also use SQL cluster and NLB. I have read the NLB is not supported by Azure.

Is there a tool I can run on the servers that can tell me if the servers are fully compatible with a cloud service. Or is there a checklist that I can use to see if my servers and applications like MOM 2005, ISA, Exchange etc. will work in the cloud. Will I have to consider upgrading the OS or application or redesigning the cluster and NLB nodes for the migration.

Many thanks

I've been doing a lot of travelling and road tripping with the family and I always find it hard and time consuming to gather all photos from cameras and iphones into one comfortable experience in front of the television. It's usually a mess to import photos from camera, and my wife, me and daughter's iphone...they mess up the dates and mix up photos and videos. Then later on viewing on my television through AppleTV(gen4) is slow and not a good experience.

I'm using Mac and iphone and has a Sony camera and a Sony television and AppleTV (gen4).

I was thinking of a cloud service or piece of software where I can basically dump all photos and videos from all my devices and it will make sure to present it all nicely on my TV so we can all sit comfortable and enjoy our adventures :-)

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

I am currently setting up a training room where I want everything to be automated. I have door style windows on a slanted roof that currently needs to be opened manually. The problem is that the windows are very high, and it is not practical to try and open them manually.

They are side hung escape windows with wooden frames and dimensions 660x1180mm.

I want to convert the windows so they can open automatically, preferably using a remote or voice commands using my SmartThings hub or Amazon Alexa. Would this be possible?

Would you be able to guide me to the type of window opener/actuator that would best suit my window and what else I would need to get to be able to use my SmartThings hub or IFTTT event triggering.

Any solutions would be much appreciated.

Regards,
Robbie

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?
0
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

Automating Your MSP Business

The road to profitability.
Delivering superior services is key to ensuring customer satisfaction and the consequent long-term relationships that enable MSPs to lock in predictable, recurring revenue. What's the best way to deliver superior service? One word: automation.

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.

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?
