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.

Free Tool: Port Scanner

Check which ports are open to the outside world. Helps make sure that your firewall rules are working as intended.

One of a set of tools we are providing to everyone as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

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?

I have the Verizon Cloud desktop app (for PC) installed but Verizon support said it only syncs one-way: from PC to Cloud. Anyone know of any 3rd party method to sync Verizon Cloud content back to my PC?
Thank you,

We are developing a website and are looking to migrate to the google cloud. We are trying to decide if we are better of using app engine or compute engine.

The website is mainly build in php and javascript. it talks to a mysql db which will be hosted on google cloud sql

Eventually there will also be an app that talks to the same database.

Wondering if anyone can give me some pointers on how to set this up.

I would like to create a folder where I could drop files in and such files would be moved to a cloud storage service and removed from the local PC.

I can use any of these services:
Pcloud
Dropbox
Google Drive
OneDrive for Business or Personal

Your suggestions and pointers are greatly appreciated.

We have a hosting stating that we have reached our files limits within the hosting.  We ran FileZilla and from root folder and the total files is not even 1% (see  below).

ftplimit
We thought maybe the hosting has "temp" areas or folders, like in Windows where one deletes its contents and free up space.  Nevertheless,  maybe we didn't correctly  used FileZilla to determine how many files are in our hosting.  

That said,
  • does FileZilla really searches the root of our hosting?
  • did we use FileZilla correctly to search for total files?
  • is there another apps we can try to determine the total of files our hosting has?

I'm downloading 66gb of photos and videos from my icloud to my Windows PC external USB drive as I plan to wipe my icloud drive.  If the download is interrupted, will I need to download the whole thing again or is it a sync tool such that it will continue where it left off when interrupted?

No opinions pls (JH), facts pls.

Thx.

Hi all,

I have a user who fills his local C Drive with a ton of docs. He claims not to have time to clean it up. Is there a cloud provider that can install there software to my PC and have it automatically archive data that is a year or older to the cloud from his my documents folder and desktop? I need their software to have unlimited retention of the data and backed up in case we need to recover. Any office 365 products?

Hi All,

I'm going to Office 365 with E3 license for my company next month so at the moment we are comparing the feature between the Exchange on Office 365 (E3) and the other email security product like Symantec EV.Cloud and MIMEcast.

What's the difference between the archiving methods and ease of use ?
I only know that in Office 365 anything can be archived for free with no limit or quota so I'm now considering whether I should be going to different archiving vendor or stay with Office 365 for archiving.

Thanks in advance.

We are a large organization that have 114 ESXi host 875 VM's and still a hand full of physical servers as well. We are mainly a Windows OS organization. We are in the process of migrating users to office 365 and also getting our feet wet with Azure storage. I know with Azure you can convert VMware VM's to hyper-v with native tools which are being deprecated and third party tools. Vmware also has cloud offers with vCloud which I believe was just sold.

We are looking to move away for an onside Lab and place it in the cloud to have hardware cost and maintenance.  Our core Vm's are backed up via Dell vRanger including our DC's. We are looking to setup an isolated lab environment in the cloud that is 100% isolated from production. I know others are doing the same thing an interest to see how others company have done with who have a large VMware presence which keep cost in mind since it is a lab environment.

Hi there.

I got couple of databases on-premises, majorly in MySQL and MS SQL.

How efficient is the way we move it to Azure platform? Do they provide any wizards or tools for this implementation?

Is Azure only support MS SQL?

Thank you.

A client has a large data folder that he was using with OneDrive at one time and apparently had issues with long file names. The syncing to Onedrive gave him obvious errors that wouldn't allow him to successfully sync so he stopped syncing and continued to keep his data on his local machine. Supposedly he has renamed the offending files but I suspect there will be many that are still longer than Windows allows.

Fast forward to now and he wants to install a Synology NAS for his local file sharing. Is there a good file transfer program that will allow data transfer and log the files it cannot move due to things such as file names etc?  Also that would not stop when it comes across errors?

Please, let's not make this about the good or bad of Synology or Onedrive.

Thanks so much.

I work for a company with lots of public facing sites and hope to find a tool which will allow us to collect data on uptimes and downtimes for each site. The less manual work the better.

Ideally, there is no effort needed once configured where we can always see the results, by week, month, year.

I want to reach some high uptime, like 99.9% for example.

I hope this site would track that and show the number of minutes total downtime with no human calculations.

We're building a web site that will very likely need to limit how much space a user can store. Either that, or limit the number of objects a user can store. Everything we've done so far is hosted on Google's Cloud Platform. Does anyone know how to do this using Google Cloud Storage?

Can point me to some existing checklists / assessments (possibly MS, AWS, IBM or Oracle
that provides hosting IAAS, PaaS, SaaS) esp those relating to financial institutions clients?

I have the attached but may not be complete:  help comment the attached?  I think it's missing:

a) how the CSP or CPS (Cloud Svc Provider) segregate using 'virtual firewall' between different
    clients so that they can't reach each other or affect each other in case one client's VM is
    compromised or say one client set an IP address that's being used by another client,
    how can this be prevented so that we don't run into 'duplicate IP addr' situation

b) vCPU, vRAM & storage & even network bandwidth can be 'carved' out for each client but
    what about IOPS ?

c) I attended an MS cloud seminar: they offered DDoS protection on top of the CDN service
    that clients use?  Should we expect the same from any other CSP ?

d) I've read of a case where clients may demand that their VMs sit in one dedicated physical
     hypervisor server that's not shared with other clients : is this essential in terms of security?

e) in MS seminar, their IAAS claims that they don't do 'tapes backup' but data domain backup
    so clients' backups are individually encrypted.  Is this essential?   In an encrypted tape
    backup, it's still a concern because when a client exit the cloud service, how do we 'securely
    erase' from the tape?  Cant be degaussing tapes as the tapes contain …

Hi All,

We have just procured new Payroll and Financial (AP & AR etc.) systems.  These two systems will be hosted by the software suppliers whereas the previous systems were internally hosted on our network.

My concern/question is how we get assurances from the suppliers that the systems are hosted securely as these are quite sensitive systems, preferable without getting another third party involved.

I’ve heard of asking for evidence of secure development practices but doesn’t this cover how the system was developed rather than how securely it is hosted (although I am sure it is still relevant)?

Kind regards.

How do I produce a listing in Amazon Cloud backup that would list all the files stored in the Cloud with the relevant dates they were last updated, size, etc.?  Is there a way I could get a report - daily, weekly of files that have been updated?
