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.

Apparently the application "Google Drive" has been replaced by "Google Backup and Sync" as the desktop application.  When I am copying files to the desktop from an external hard drive it is trying to sync these files to the cloud.  I DO NOT want this to happen.  I only want to backup files to the cloud that are located in the Google Drive folder (shortcut on the desktop).

How do I set this up?

Get your Disaster Recovery as a Service basics

Disaster Recovery as a Service is one go-to solution that revolutionizes DR planning. Implementing DRaaS could be an efficient process, easily accessible to non-DR experts. Learn about monitoring, testing, executing failovers and failbacks to ensure a "healthy" DR environment.

I have a split database. I want to allow multiple users to read and write data to tables in the back end through a cloud-based option. Can I do this with Amazon? If not, is there another site that would work for this project?

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!

Hi everyone,
Does anyone know how to preserve snapshot tags in AWS. This node.js function moves the snapshots to another region but does not preserve tags so it becomes difficult to identify which server the snapshot belonged to.
If I cannot preserve tags, I would like to know how to tag a snapshot using the javascript code below. Example Key:DeleteOn Value [currentdate]
I found this code snippet that may be of help:
http://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-javascript/v2/developer-guide/ec2-example-creating-an-instance.html

 // Add tags to the instance
   params = {Resources: [instanceId], Tags: [
      {
         Key: 'DeleteOn',
         Value: 'current date as 2017-12-05'
      }
   ]};
   ec2.createTags(params, function(err) {
      console.log("Tagging instance", err ? "failure" : "success");
   });
Thanks!
Peter

    const description = 'Snapshot copy from ${snapshotId} in ${sourceRegion}';

Hello,

We have a Windows 2008r2 server set up as a remote desktop server. The server currently has Office 2010 on it and we would like to update to Office 2016. We use Office 365 and I attempted to install, but received a message that we need a volume license. What do I have to do to get Office 2016 on here?

Thanks

We supply a software application that is run on Remote Desktop servers (each client has their own Virtual Server).  One of the areas I am currently researching is to provide the ability for users to click on a "Call" button in our application, and dial the number (whilst connected to the RDP).  I have found a couple of solutions that will allow me to press the "Call" button, which will then dial the recipient's number (along with the user making the call), which in theory, should be ok - but I am yet to test it and am interested in all options.

For me, the perfect solution would be for users to be able to plug in a headset on their local laptop, run the application on the Remote Desktop and call - without impacting server performance in any way.  Or, if they have a phone system already in place - somehow dial through that.

Any pointers, products, suggestions - would be massively appreciated.

In (MS Word) VBA projects, I typically organize files into a "content library." This consists of all types of files my toolbar might need to access:  .docx, .xlsx, graphic files, etc.  I give the user a tool to specify the location of the content library, which often lives on a shared network drive, and it stores that in a public string variable and saves it to the registry for future sessions.  For example,
contentlibrarylocation = "G:\Tools\MainContentLibrary"

Open in new window

From that point on, every time the toolbar needs to open a file or insert a file from the library, my code simply uses string variables, concatenating the desired subfolder and file name to the end of the content library.  For example
file2open = contentlibrarylocation & "\Boilerplate\LegalTerms.docx"
Application.Documents.Open (file2open)
'OR
logo2insert = contentlibrarylocation & "\Images\Logos\" & Me.ListBox1.Value
ActiveDocument.InlineShapes.AddPicture(filename:=logo2insert, Range:=Selection.Range)

Open in new window

My question is this:  Rather that a local or network drive, if I put my content library on a cloud server such as Box.com, or Google Drive, can I interact with it this same way?  I uploaded my folder and tried setting my content library pointer to the shared folder link from Box.com, for example
contentlibrarylocation = "https://app.box.com/s/psjov2rpjwbn52v25tawqn8bb1cyu7ss"

Open in new window

Then I tried concatenating subfolders and filenames to that, but VBA cannot find the indicated files.  I understand there is a difference between pulling files from a network folder vs. files on the web, but I need some help knowing how to address the later, and if this can even be done this way.

Thanks in advance for any help!

The Lifecycle Approach to Managing Security Policy
The Lifecycle Approach to Managing Security Policy

Managing application connectivity and security policies can be achieved more effectively when following a framework that automates repeatable processes and ensures that the right activities are performed in the right order.

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 :-)
