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.

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 :-)

Will your db performance match your db growth?

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Are there any core banking software  system running on cloud infrastructure  Which horizontaly scalable on processing capacity, memory capacity and database capacity ?

Please suggest me a ticketing tool.

I Want to create a free, online, ticketing tool forum for my apartment where 90 families can log requests.

Online (or mobile) users can check the status of a problem. Suggest and track a solution and close it.

Periodically a report can be pulled. It should be simple and easy to use.

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?

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

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?

Moving data to the cloud? Find out if you’re ready

Moving data to the cloud? Find out if you’re ready

Before moving to the cloud, it is important to carefully define your db needs, plan for the migration & understand prod. environment. This wp explains how to define what you need from a cloud provider, plan for the migration & what putting a cloud solution into practice entails.

Is there a way to have Azure AD off-prem but having  sync data in-house?   Just in case Azure goes away or legal issues with MS etc.  Currently not having AD domain controllers in-house, and want to keep this way.  Don't want to introduce complexity in-house for that reason.

Hi All,

I have a client that would like a cloud solution for all their company data (word, excel docs etc) no databases or anything. They would also require folders to have relevant permissions set.

Their emails on are Office 365 but we don't want to use OneDrive due to the limitations on the file Sync Limit for each user, plus they don't want to use the web version of OneDrive to access the data.

We don't want the users to access a cloud server via remote desktop connection as the cost for office and user CALS would be a fortune.

Can anyone recommend a solution for the kind of setup, they would have around 60 plus users accessing the data from office all around the UK.

We would also want a secure connection to the cloud system, i.e. vpn for each user. We have been told about the RS models of the Synology range?

thanks again

How much does Box.com charge for storing files in the cloud?

I have seen that they say that you can store an unlimited number of files in the cloud but I haven't found where they mention how much this costs for storing large amounts of files.

Does Box.com have a recycle bin?

What is the retention policy for going back in time to past file revisions? Like for example a Microsoft Word or Excel file that has been modified several times over the last few months?

Dell Inspiron 1500 series. Windows 10:
I have had a OneDrive account for a number of years. This is how I have operated it:
 When i want to transfer files  from my laptop to the OneDrive cloud I go to my Browser, click on OneDrive.com (it is in my favourites) and then upload from the site  the files I want to transfer.This has worked fairly well so far.
Recently I have a much larger number of files than usual to transfer and know there must be a quicker and better way to transfer them.
What must I do? I don't have a OneDrive Folder on my computer and nothing is synchecd. Can you help me (am 74 years old, but alive and livecly).

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

hi guys

I am setting up a Excel password sheet that is protected with information regarding  our domain passwords and switches etc. With the issue of ransomware etc becoming a grander problem by the day, I am now being asked to not only create these protected password sheets on the network, but also in the cloud with providers like 'LastPass'.

Would you or have you done this and feel safe to put your passwords in a vault in the cloud?

Thanks for helping

In a recent EE question Boxcryptor was mention as a tool use along OneDrive, or any cloud service we assume, to protect data to/from the sites.  We have 2 questions regarding these types of tool:

  • How secure are these apps like Boxcryptor?

  • Do these apps connect back to their developer site sending  any data to  them every thier product is being used?
