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,

I've been using Dropbox for years, the 1 TB account and I think it's great.  I have some clients that use Google Drive and they think it's great--until lately.  One of the users deleted a bunch of random files in many different folders.  Being familiar with Dropbox, I was thinking that it was going to be simple to restore these deleted files from the trash.  I would just go in there (past the meatloaf from last week, egg shells, etc) and sort the trash folder by date deleted or date modified and restore the data back to its original location. Apparently, it's not that simple.  The trash is all mixed together.  It has a "last modified" and "last opened" column option but there is no chronological sorting when those options are selected.  Please say that I'm missing something here.  I googled, "google drive restore by date deleted files" in hopes to find someone else that had this issue.  I found an old Google productforums page and the conclusion by the Google Drive tech was, "Thank you for posting and sorry you're running into this issue. The only way for you to restore files on specific days is to do it manually."  So, no sorting in the trash?  You must restore the whole thing and then sort through it?  I checked out Dropbox again and I see that you can sort the deleted files by date/time deleted.  Please let me know if you have some experience with this or if Google Drive is not a good option.  Thank you!

Want to avoid the missteps to gaining all the benefits of the cloud? Learn more about the different assessment options from our Cloud Advisory team.

I am at a company that is trying to sync their local data drive to the google cloud but this is not the problem.

They would like to setup permissions on the files within the google teams to duplicate the MS server permissions so that certain people can have access to these folders remotely and update, edit and keep them in sync.

The challenges are that within folders we need some to be read only others to be modify and to allow a sync back to the client and back up again.

Can you suggest any third party software or advice or alternatives as I can see this getting messy very quickly, mainly from the manual replication of permissions. If there are any tools to help with assigning permissions that would also help.

thank you

I am currently running my own in house exchange server and considering moving to a hosted solution (The Cloud).  There seems to be several option in a hosted base system.  Does anyone have any suggestions or where to start?  Office 365 or hosted exchange?  Google, Microsoft, Intermedia ... how do you pick?

Hello!

I have a couple clients that are looking to remove on premises server and go completely cloud server for varying reasons.  While I am reluctant to go this route, the customer wants it regardless of my input so I need to figure out a plan.

They have Office 365, and the files are in a sharepoint, and their E-mail in the cloud.  The server is really only doing DNS and AD functions.   DNS can be offloaded to the router, and that leaves AD and GPO.

With full desktop stations to remain on prem, what is the best approach for domain management, or is it even needed at this point?  

Are SMB's setting up a site to site VPN to AWS or Azure, and then using AD and GPO from the cloud?

I really dislike the idea of turning the PC's back into a workgroup, and the headaches that it brings with.

Looking for suggestions, I feel I am missing a simple piece in the middle.

Thank you.

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

How to update lastsuccessfulsynctimestamp in a migration batch.

Migrating from onpremise to Cloud. The migration was initiated two months back and lastsuccessfulsynctimestamp  shows 7/16/2017

I have about 30 000 files which are a mix of jpg, png, mov, mp4 and potentially others.  Total size is around 70GB.  I've collected these into a single folder structure and left an upload to google photos running, and then used the desktop uploaded and left that for a week to upload any that were missed.

Now, I'm not sure which have uploaded successfully and which haven't.  The 'log' created during the upload is not helpful when working out which files haven't uploaded.  I've done a download of the photos from google photos through their backup system.  However, I can't just windiff between the two folders as they have different subfolder structures.  I've tried doing an xcopy of files to a single folder but some of the files have the same name (although different dates) and I may miss out on file-extensions that I'm not aware are in the listing.

Does anyone have any ideas or scripts I could run to make the problem easier to solve, or to come up with the final list of files that haven't uploaded?

Dear Experts
I am using sales force automation sugarcrm and we are evaluating the CTI integration either the complete cloud telephony or hybrid, one of the service provider has this hybrid where they do not charge for inbound and outbound call per minute unlike the complete cloud telephony instead they will host their server may be PBX and that is connected to their data center but application will used is of their platform, and calls will be routed to us directly from telco both the inbound and outbound unlike the complete cloud where calls are routed from their data centre.
please suggest the best solution to go for, pros and cons please. thanks in advance.

Hello

I have tried a number of times to reduce the size of my EBS volume. I keep running into problems.

I am using Centos 7.3.1611 and Plesk (set up through Amazon marketplace)

I have managed to copy all the files over from the old server to the new using the instructions here (https://superuser.com/questions/1123799/how-to-decrease-size-the-ebs-root-volume-of-the-rhel-instance-in-aws) - as well as similar other guides.

The only difference is because I am using xfs instead of ext4 I was unable to do the e2label

When I attach the new volume to the instance as /dev/sda1 it does not load. I cannot connect to it using SSH and websites do not load.

I am at a loss now. I have tried so many times. I made a mistake making my initial EBS volume size way too big and it is costing me quite a bit of money every day.

I am unsure if the problem is because I am formatting my drive is XFS. This was the format of the original drive when I first set up the instance. I have not been able to find a guide that details how to shrink an EBS volume that is formatted in XFS, they are all for ext4.


If any one could provide some assistance that would be much appreciated.

So we have about 12 cameras at our company that records all day every day.The 1TB drive in the Platinum dvr gets full super fast and we are unable to retreive old recordings from a couple of months back. So i was looking at some unlimited cloud backup solutions like like Crashplan and Backblaze. Now Crashplan is good as it allows me to not only backup all files but also all mapped network drives. is there a way for me to access the DVR hdd from my file server and somehow map it to my server so the backup software can upload all the recordings? Any alternatives? Any advice would be appreciated:)

Hi Everyone,

I am hoping you can help me with this.

We have several cloud servers and are going to purchase more.

The hosting company does offer several options for back up.  One of the options is a server in the cloud to manage all of that but it's being stored in the same place?  My management wants to know our options for backing up in the cloud.

Here is what i don't get.

In trying to work on disaster recovery here, we are looking at backing up to the cloud, these servers I am trying to get more information on now are already in the cloud, so what is the recommended way that we should be backing up our cloud servers?  I can't back them up to here I don't think.

I hope that made sense, just didn't know how others are doing it.  

Thank you,

Karen

Hi there, could someone explain what the tunnel inside addresses are in the generic config file for an amazon site to site vpn and how these get used in a Bgp setup?I'm attempting to connect a Sophos xg to an amazon vpc.  The vpn tunnel comes up fine but I'm having a problem getting traffic to route.  There are two "inside" addresses in the config file one for the customer and one for the vpc and they are both 169.x.x.x addresses.  
Thanks

hi, Whatsapp archives audio attachments as .opus files. I have saved them to a dropbox. Surely there is a way to play them on a browser without going through a complicated series of conversion steps. I need this to work for non-techies who can click on a link but that's as far as I expect the user involvement to go. I can generate the links if there is a site that will stream the opus files.

Can anyone suggest a site? Something like URL WWW.CLEVEROPUSSTREAMINGSITE.COM?MYOPUS=MYDROPBOXLINK

Thanks

Hey guys,

I signed up to receive texts for a 2-step authorization process when someone tries to log in from an unknown device.

I got 3 texts to today that showed a nearby suburb and 'unknown device' with 3 attempts.

Is this accurate?
