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.

When create a license users, it ask for the location. Should I need to select the physical location for a users ? eg. If the user is office is in Beijing and relocate to London, should I specify the location be "London" ? Will Exchange try to assign users to the server that close to his working location ?

Thx again.

Hi,

I have 2 machines:
Computer 1 at the Office
Computer 2 at Home
I have sharing document in Microsoft words named “Document#2”
I want to use the cloud service with Office 365
@Computer 1:
I do the following configuration:
Go to regedit > HKLM > software > Policy> Microsoft> windows > Delete the One Drive folder
Install the One Drive for business > click the “setting” > put the email address jblack@boba.com > sign in
I can see at my “file explorer”, there is OneDrive – Boba
When I highlight OneDrive – Boba: I can see the following folders:
Attachment (folder) (status: cloud)
Documents (folder) (Status: green color Check mark inside the ring)
Microsoft Teams Chat files (folder) (Status: green color Check mark inside the ring)
Notebooks (folder) (Status: green color Check mark inside the ring)
Microsoft word (file) (Status: green color Check mark inside the ring)

I put the sharing document “Document#2” inside the Documents (folder); share to jblack@boba.com

@Computer 2:
I setup it up the same as Computer 1
Good news, I can see the “Document#2” at this computer at the OneDrive – Boba

Conclusion: I can EDIT “document#2” either, I am at home or office (Without connecting to VPN)
At Office, I use the network drive called “home drive”; the path of the home drive is “ \\BOBA-SQL\HOME\SF (H:) “

Question: Can I see the Home Drive ( \\BOBA-SQL\HOME\SF ) @ Computer 2 (which is at my home)?

User has two locations where they work on their photo library using Adobe LightRoom on Mac.  They are 8 months at first location, then 4 months at the second for the summer.

Can I have a Synology NAS at each location to synchronize their work?

Internet connection in NYC is FIOS, which currently is 600+ mbps using Speedtest both Download and Upload
Internet connection in MA (Massachusetts) is Xfinity which measures 30 Download and 6 Upload

They have about 5 TB of photos on a RAID directly attached to their computer.
I can use software to sync the RAID files to and from the Synology


I will do the initial synchronization of  the Synology units in NYC, and have them bring one to MA

Once in MA
User adds 1 to 2 GB of photos every few days, which will be synchronized to the NAS

At the end of the 4 months, when the user returns to NYC, I would like their photo library and LightRoom catalogs to be a mirror of what they were working on in MA, and ready to use.



Is this a good method?
Any steps missing?


Thanks

Have a potential client, that has 2 marina locations.  They have DSL (10Mbps) as best possible internet source.  They currently have a VPN for voice network, using those same DSL connections.  QoS priority is the phones.  Due to the small bandwidth, instead of using the RDP connection to one slave computer at Site A... They are looking for cloud based software to manage the marina businesses as one entity.  The software must be cloud based, and a Terminal Server is not an option.  It must work with Quickbooks for all accounting.

Looking to migrate towards a Hybrid Cloud, but first need to get inventory and visualization of our Environment.

Any suggestions on what kind of questions I should ask when looking for this service?

All answers are good answers to me as I will research further, but I'm currently working on a list of questions for vendors.

I am moving my onPremise Exchange 2010 mailbox to Cloud. AD users has been synchronized to Cloud and company mail domain has been setup. However, I haven't setup the MX, spf at this stage.

Try to configure the Exchange Hybrid setup on my server but encounter the following problem. Any idea ?  I have a mailbox database role on one server, CAS and Hub Transport on another server. Fortigate firewall is used to match the external to internal CAS. Wizard certificate is deployed.

How to fix my problem ? As I will finally phrase out my server, should all the mails go through Cloud first and then local server. Any more guideline on the hybrid configuration ?

Thx

We are working on a project for storing large raw video to archive as well as for editing for production distribution at some point.  We'd really like to utilize a cloud storage solution but need easy and convenient access to the files when needed.  Obviously access control / security built in as well.  Need some recommendations.  Thanks.

Hey I am trying to find a cloud based server for my organization. I live in Canada so i believe the database's physical location needs to be on Canadian soil for legal reasons. Currently I am trying out Sync.com and I like it but if two people have open the same file, it creates a duplicate file when saved. Is there a way in the files to make it so says read only if it is already opened?

I've seen a Squarespace website that has a BOOK AN APPOINTMENT button that links to https://abcchiropractor.janeapp.com/.   janeapp.com has acquired cloud storage and has created a subdomain for the business abcchiropractor.  They've also associated a function with the storage that books appointments after referring to a database, etc.  They say they've also created a Charting function that lets doctors keep charts on individual patients.

I want to do something similar, where my clients can have their own space in a cloud where they can describe an idea that they want to develop and bring to market. So after logging in to their cloud area, they could upload videos that described themselves and their idea, as well as images and documents. This could all be viewed by other people, like potential investors.

I'm looking for a development platform that would do as much of the heavy lifting here as possible. My initial thought is to start with a Squarespace site.  From there the client would log into their cloud area and upload what they wanted to their private space.   Does anyone know of a platform that might work for me here?

Thank you!

We are asked by our customer to look into VMWare Velocloud Deployment for SDWAN, can you please shine some light on:

2. Can we get some 95% Percentile traffic statistics from VEP4600 controller ?

Some documentation would be highly appreciated.

Dynamics 365 Online, CRM 2013 on prem, SQL Azure

We are upgrading a CRM 2013 system to D365 Online.  The 2013 system has several SQL Procs that currently write information to the CRM 2013 system.  I stood up an Azure environment and imported one SQL proc (and associated database) into Azure.  

I can now query the database associated with the SQL proc, run the sp commands, query the database.  It now functions like the SQL Proc and database that writes to CRM 2013

I am now not sure how to use the SQL Proc/database on Azure with Dynamics 365 Online.  

How do I replicate the process where the SQL proc writes data to CRM 2013  and then use this in D365?

Is this a job for Scribe or KingswaySoft?

Please advise.

Looking for research, links/opinions on Okta vs.  Azure AD.
 What is it Okta can do or do better than Azure?  Would you need Okta if you already have Azure implemented?  
Is it better for provisioning/de-provisioning accounts, apps?   Better on doing SSO/MFA?  Is Okta better than Azure?  

Please advice if anyone dealt with both.  Thanks in advance!

Does anyone know Azure licenses features EMS E5 vs. P1 license.  Seems they are offering same options.

Also, would it make sense to have a chunk of users of one license and the rest on another.  It would be hard to manage I think.  

Thoughts?

What are the best azure tools to move data from a data center in the US to a UK region Azure tenant?

I have a  Dallas TX data center that I am trying to move out of and into a UK region Azure tenant. The big question is how to keep the data flowing. We have talked about getting an Azure Data Box for the 5TB of static data that can wait, but we have some SQL servers that have a total data footprint of about 400GB that we may need to refresh several times during this exercise.

What do the experts think the best way to move our SQL server data is? We are looking at just *,baks and *.trns as we have some columns that are VARCHAR(MAX) and may have some BLOBs in our databases. We are also very hesitant to turn on anything that requires SQL replication to work. Our only big challenge at the moment is how to get our data across the wire and to the UK.

We were thinking if we just got the data into Azure blob storage, that we could then just pull that down in the UK. I was also thinking this may be our best option as the Microsoft CDN is probably going to outperform any type of link we configure. We also have word docs that are actively used that would need to trickle over. We also have the ability on these to find all related files that have changed within N hours.

Does azure have a utility that we could install on a server or VM in our Dallas data center that would just push this to Azure blob and we can put the same type of appliance in our UK tenant and pull from the …
