Much to my great joy, the X-Files is currently available on Amazon Prime and so to unwind a bit and relax, I'll periodically watch an episode, sometimes 2, after the young kids go to bed. The seventh episode of the first season is entitled, "Ghost in the Machine" and in this episode, a revolutionary computer … Continue reading Mist in the Machine
Hello everyone! My name is David and I haven't posted in like 6 weeks. Helping a customer recover from ransomware can be a consuming and exhausting task. Additionally, I was fortunate to be selected as a delegate for Cloud Field Day 5 in Silicon Valley a couple weeks ago and it too can be a … Continue reading AWS Customer Questions – How do I Restore a VPC to Another Region?
I have read about ransomware attacks, how destructive they could be, how some organizations recovered by paying the ransom and others by restoring from backups. I've also read that some organizations were unable to recover from a ransomware attack and had to close their doors. But these were always stories "out there" and happening to … Continue reading Ransomware Strikes! What Is Your Initial Response?
Overview In my last two posts, we've looked at setting up an N2WS S3 Repository, creating and then restoring files from an External Repository, and then creating backup copy jobs to copy the data in S3 to an on-prem backup repository. In this post, we'll use the external repository to restore an Amazon EC2 instance … Continue reading Veeam/N2WS – Using External Repositories to Restore to Azure
What is an External Repository? Veeam External Repositories provide a means of integrating Veeam with N2WS. But what is an external repository? It's really quite simple. If I may, I'd like to point you to my previous post on which I detailed the steps to configure/enable the Copy to S3 feature of N2WS version 2.4. … Continue reading Veeam/N2WS – Using External Repositories
Over the next few posts (I'm not sure how many it'll end up being), I want to explore the developing integration of N2WS version 2.4 and Veeam 9.5 Update 4. As you may know, N2WS Cloud Protection Manager is a, but I'll say "the" leader in regards to data protection of AWS resources as it … Continue reading Veeam/N2WS – Introducing Copy to S3
As you may very well know, one of the new features of ProfileUnity 6.8, is the ability to save and host FlexApp application packages on object-based cloud storage including AWS S3, Google Cloud, and Microsoft Azure. Perhaps this points to a measure of shortsightedness on my part, but this is the feature I was most … Continue reading Deploying FlexApp Packages To/From AWS S3 using ProfileUnity 6.8
After recently completing a ProfileUnity 6.7 to 6.8 upgrade, I received a login message within AWS WorkSpaces that stated, "No ProfileUnity License server defined. Please contact your system administrator." This message, to me, seems expected at some level as the licensing file I obtained from Liquidware for version 6.7 was to be replaced with a … Continue reading No ProfileUnity License Server defined after 6.8 Upgrade
Just today, I was working on a ProfileUnity 6.7 to 6.8 upgrade so as to use AWS S3 for FlexApp packages. Updating the ProfileUnity Management and FlexApp Packaging consoles was pretty easy and straightforward, but I wasn't exactly sure how to update the ProfileUnity client on deployed AWS WorkSpaces. Originally, the client was deployed to … Continue reading Updating the ProfileUnity Client for Cloud-based Desktops
Recently, I performed an upgrade from N2WS Cloud Protection Manager 2.3 to 2.4. Though I didn't have any issues during the upgrade AND my backups continued to be successful afterward, I received an error when trying to perform an AWS permissions check though the N2WS GUI, specifically, my N2WS instance did not appear to have … Continue reading “Errno13 Permission Denied” After Upgrading N2WS to Version 2.4
