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.

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).

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?

What is SQL Server and how does it work?

The purpose of this paper is to provide you background on SQL Server. It’s your self-study guide for learning fundamentals. It includes both the history of SQL and its technical basics. Concepts and definitions will form the solid foundation of your future DBA expertise.

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?

Our company has over 90 small regional offices across the nation.  Currently, each office has a small size home server for their local mapped drives.

As the size of unstructured data is growing large, we are asking users to save their home drive data to Office 365 one drive.  We are thinking about affordable cloud storage such as Offsitedatasync to hold the server data.  But I am not sure about performance as i do not know where their servers are located.  

If someone has other idea, please advise.  

Thanks,

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.
