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 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.

Trying to figure out how to setup, if it is even possible or best practice, to setup my current ADFS (2.0 (Windows Server 2012)), which is being used to sync my AD with Office365 accounts (i.e. logins, etc.) to support a separate or another service in the cloud.

This other vendor (cloud service) is requesting the metadata...however, I am concerned about mixing my group A users (using Office365 services) with this new group B users.

I want to make sure that my group B users do not get Office365 accounts accidentally.


I am crunched for time or else I would just build new ADFS platform to 4.0 (Windows Server 2016), but that will have to wait until a later date.


Can anyone explain, send links, etc. on how I should go about setting up (reconfiguring my ADFS 2.0 (Windows Server 2012) to support these two separate cloud services?


If you need further details to assist me, just let me know.


Thanks in advance.

I am trying to add a host route as a test to my routing table in AWS to make it go over my DX connection. However for some reason I seem to not be able to get
the route to propagate as can be seen in the attached image. Traceroute fails to make it beyond even the first hop. What can cause this?

My company has 1TB of storage with OneDrive for Business with our Office 365 licenses. We have about 40 users and  I would like to setup 4-5 directories and then share them with specific users based on who I want to have access to what files. Using Sharepoint is not an option for us, we would like to keep this as simple as possible.

I am hesitant to create folders and share them from current user accounts because if the user goes away so does their shares. What is the best practice to setting up a OneDrive for Business file share? My thought was create a user with the license needed that is just a "dummy user" and setup the shares from that account that way we manage all shares from that one account.

Is there a better way to do this? Or any other suggestions? We just want to have some files be available to users traveling or at home that don't have VPN access. Nothing with "secure data".

Thanks

Is there any way of setting corporate Google Drive data to read-only?

Once we migrate the data from our corporate Google Drive folder we would like to set this data as read-only so that the data will remain in Google Drive but will not be able to be modified.

Is there any way of doing this?

I'm trying to make sense of the Microsoft Azure pricing structures (from the https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/pricing/ website) which says that the App Service starts from $0.013/hour, the Virtual Machines from $0.011/hour, and SQL Database from $0.021/hour) (see the screenshot below).

What do these prices mean?

Also, what does "Free for the first 12 months" mean?

I have enrolled a free OnDrive share account to test the security of file sharing.

I find that if anyone get my file sharing link, he can access the file once he has an account in OnDrive.

Is it possible for OneDrive to restrict the user to access a shared file, (eg. only particular email address login to OnDrive).

Thx

Is there any setup example on sharing files on Microsoft Clouds, main on

1. simply sharing of files across different regions in China
2. approval progress for CAPEX / OPEX (Excel / Word document)

Is it any simple guideline for setting up option 2 ?

Can I say Clouds should provide better performance (Speed) comparing with users access the document in one centralized server through VPN, as Microsoft should provide better network connectivity across different regions / countries through their cloud services ? Window OS are Window 7, 8 and 10.

Thx
