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 have been approached by a group of 8 companies to provide for them an information exchange portal. Here they would store files, documents and posts, organized by category and sub category, and a bulletin board with latest news and events posted by the users.

The companies indicated that SharePoint wont’t work because the each have their own domain, and they need this solution to be independent from any of them. They also want to restrict each company to 3 users, and if another company wants to join, the admin of 3 other companies need to approve.

My question is - would this be a development project (I'm a PHP developer); or a sourcing project, where there is something pre-made that can be adjusted? What would a  bull park cost be for this?

Thank you.

Cloud Class® Course: Microsoft Office 2010

This course will introduce you to the interfaces and features of Microsoft Office 2010 Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, and Access. You will learn about the features that are shared between all products in the Office suite, as well as the new features that are product specific.

Hello,
I am new to dealing with file server systems and hybrid solutions. My company was looking at a dell emc that was going to have functionality that would take files based on rules and push them to the cloud. This would leave a pointer in place so if an end user would ever need to do anything with the file they would not know it was in the cloud, it would just take a bit longer for it to download. Unfortunately this won't work in our position as the emc product would have to be used as a san or as a file server. We are using it for a hybrid approach.
I would like to continue to use aws for our cloud storage, but what is out there to automatically do what we are looking for? I know that you can backup data to the cloud but I would like to keep IT's involvement low as we are a small team for a larger company.

We have a small business with 15 employees all using office365 and Onedrive. We have a mix of computers mostly Windows and some Macs. The users use OneDrive for storage. There are no servers and most users work remotely out of the office. The owner's don't want to avoid the traditional IT infrastructure and want to use the cloud since the want to keep things simple and run an slim IT . We had a issue recently where one user had deleted a few files/folders from OneDrive by mistake. I am an IT admin with good amount of onsite AD and Windows experience. Is there anyway of setting up and active directory / file server /domain setup using Microsoft Cloud? Not sure if that's even necessary or that if its too costly.  Also, I have to find a way of backing up OneDrive and also the Onedrive user folders. Suggestions and any directions are appreciated. Thank You,

Lambda backups via AWS - Currently the backup script in place does the backup perfectly fine however it does not add the label to the snapshot. We would like the backup to place the instance name to the snapshot backup so it is easy to understand. I believe such functionality must exist already as having a snapshot created with no label is not helpful, especially if that instance no longer exists.

Current Script:
import boto3
import collections
import datetime

ec = boto3.client('ec2')

def lambda_handler(event, context):
    reservations = ec.describe_instances(
        Filters=[
            {'Name': 'tag-key', 'Values': ['backup', 'Backup']},
        ]
    ).get(
        'Reservations', []
    )

    instances = [
        i for r in reservations
        for i in r['Instances']
    ]

    print "Found %d instances that need backing up" % len(instances)

    to_tag = collections.defaultdict(list)

    for instance in instances:
        try:
            retention_days = [
                int(t.get('Value')) for t in instance['Tags']
                if t['Key'] == 'Retention'][0]
        except IndexError:
            retention_days = 7

        for dev in instance['BlockDeviceMappings']:
            if dev.get('Ebs', None) is None:
                continue
            vol_id = dev['Ebs']['VolumeId']
            print "Found EBS volume %s on instance %s" % (
                vol_id, instance['InstanceId'])

            snap = ec.create_snapshot(

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?

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

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?

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.

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?

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?

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!

Hi,

We have a SmartThings hub and SmartThings power outlet.

There is a device plugged into the SmartThings power outlet.

Also, we have an Amazon Echo Dot connected with the SmartThings power outlet.

There is also a Google Home in the room.

Ideally, what we would like to happen is that if someone turns off the SmartThings power outlet via the app or Amazon Alexa, that the SmartThings power outlet would turn back on after several hours, example 4 hours.

This would mean the device connected to the smart outlet could only ever be turned off for 4 hours at most.

Is there a way of configuring this via SmartThings, Amazon Alexa or with some other type of smart power outlet?

Thanks,
Robbie
