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.

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." :-

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?

I need suggestions on advantages and disadvantages of moving our file server to the Cloud.

We use a network drive (about 20 users, approximately 10 concurrently) basically as a file server. Each workstation has a Drive C containing Office 365, a couple of accounting programs and various utility programs. All billing, correspondence, data, reports and spreadsheets are stored on Drive F (ie, the server, approximately 50GB). Most of the current work files are within a  single directory on the file server. That directory is shared, via ShareFile, is about 30GB. There are 5 or 6 employees who are running ShareFile on the laptops who access that directory via ShareFile.

Sharefile does funny things to the file permission settings that I do not quite understand. Even though a file IS NOT marked READ ONLY, once ShareFile shares the file, it is READ ONLY. Although annoying, it is workable. I would like to move the 30GB shared directory, or for that matter the entire 50GB file server directory to the Cloud. That way users are the office or those working via laptop would have access to the same files.

I assume this is possible. Is it advisable? The advantages are obvious, but what are the disadvantages? Costs? File Conflicts? Speed?

Dear Experts,

I am a novice when it comes to cloud storage.  My company is looking to move to a cloud storage platform; so, I have been doing some research on it and I am confused to how exactly does cloud storage work.  So I need help in explaining to me how cloud storage works.

I am very familiar of how things work on our internal storage environment.  If we have a hypothetical department that has 4 employees (Dave, Gary, Matt, Zach); each employee would get their own personal slice of the home drive to keep their own personal data and no one has access to their personal data, except them (and quite possibly the system administrator).  Then there would be a shared drive, separate from the home drive, that they can share documents to others within the department or perhaps outside of the department.

Now, how would the above scenario work if my company moves from an internal storage environment to a cloud storage environment?  In the research I have done so far, I am familiar that each of the above 4 employees would receive their personal cloud storage account that has a storage limit (500GB, 1TB, 2TB, etc...) assigned to it, based on a subscription plan.  However, I am not understanding, how would they share documents with others in the department or even outside of the department?

Any help, tidbit, advice, suggestion would be very much appreciated.  Also, if you have a certain/specific/recommended cloud storage site you would recommend, please do so.  I am …

Hi,

Yesterday I unlinked OneDrive Personal to link up my OneDrive Business. I normally don't use OneDrive Personal but when my new computer was setup my personal account was linked (desktop, docs and pics). It synced alle my files and said it was full, I continued work on it since I thought it was stored locally on the computer.

I did a lot of work on a file stored at my desktop, which I saved multiple times during last week. Yesterday I unlinked the OneDrive Personal and linked up OneDrive for Business. Today I was going to edit the file again, everything was lost and it shows only the content of the file at the beginning (before edit started)

How can this be? Somebody else heard of this, found a solution?

Can a OneDrive for Business Deployment be "pre-configured" for win10 users?  

On our win10 clients, OneDrive is in the system tray as a white cloud "OneDrive not signed in".

We want to "auto-configure" it as much as possible.

The extent of what I've been able to accomplish is pre-filling the email address on the "Setup OneDrive" screen via a URL where the email address is the parameter.

I keep seeing references to the same KB article:
https://support.office.com/en-us/article/deploy-the-new-onedrive-sync-client-in-an-enterprise-environment-3f3a511c-30c6-404a-98bf-76f95c519668

It mentions the pre-filling email address thing and also auto-syncing a sharepoint library but we don't have a sharepoint library.

We simply want to deploy onedrive as seamlessly as possible so we can do away with "U:" personal file server space and let people store their personal files in OneDrive.

Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Is it possible to know the usage cost for a single AWS instance using AWS CLI or any command line version please?

Scenario:
We have few AWS Instances running 24X7. Have introduced on-demand stop/start to save cost through AWS CLI automation (thanks to EE )
Now, would like to get the cost when it was running and get the cost when its on-demand to see the savings

or any suggestion around this would be very helpful.

Thanks in advance

Hi

I've asked this question on the dropbox forum but not much response, so hoping someone here may be able to offer some insight.

I would very much like to understand more about what happens with Dropbox when the desktop application encounters a missing root Dropbox directory (using Windows 10 if that is pertinent but my query is about general Dropbox behaviour)

This could happen if one were to install Dropbox - against adivice from Dropbox - onto an external drive.
But this could also happen if for instance the Dropbox root folder on an internal disk were moved or deleted, perhaps accidentally.
(Note I'm not talking about deleting files inside the dropbox root folder - which would of course sync and remove them in the cloud. I'm specifically talking about the whole folder being missing, not just the contents thereof)

Is it true that if the Dropbox application cannot find the root dropbox folder - then it will delete all the files in the Dropbox?

First I would like to be sure that I have understood this correctly, and then if so, I am wondering why this apparently strange design choice has been made?

Many thanks for any input or clarification!
