This white paper is a Windows PowerShell guide for beginners.
If you are an IT Professional with little-to-no experience with
PowerShell and want to learn more about this powerful scripting
framework, this quick-start guide is for you.
With the PowerShell engine, you can automate daily management of
Windows-based servers, applications and platforms. This e-book provides
the fundamentals every PowerShell administrator needs to know. The
getting started guide will give you a crash course on PowerShell
essential terms, concepts and commands and help you quickly understand
You will also learn about:
white paper focuses on PowerShell 4.0; however, you can be sure that
all the basics provided are relevant to earlier versions as well. For
those who are ready to take the next steps in learning PowerShell and
looking for more information on the topic, this PDF contains a list of
Protect Applications, Not Data
How-to Guide: Application Protection and Recovery for VMware
organizations are considering a business continuity/disaster recovery
(BC/DR) solution, they need to look for a solution that not only
protects and recovers the data, but also protects and recovers the
application. Virtualized applications typically span multiple VMs and
are more complex in terms of dependencies and infrastructure. They
require recovery with write-order fidelity, something most replications
solutions do not supply

There are many open source
monitoring tools available today that provide a cost-effective alternative for
tackling baseline infrastructure monitoring challenges – Ganglia, Groundwork,
Nagios, Zabbix, and Zenoss Core are just a few.
every tool is right for every environment.
Weighing the strengths and
weaknesses of open-source offerings is essential to determining whether they
will work to meet your specific goals.
The storage market is noisy. On the surface, storage providers tout all flash, more models and real-time analytics. But under the covers lies a dirty little secret—their operating systems (the foundation of storage) are all the same… built on LUNs and volumes.
But now a new category of storage has emerged—with operating systems built on virtual machines, and specifically attuned to virtualization cloud. It’s called VM-aware storage (VAS), and if you’ve got a large virtual footprint, it’s something you need to explore further. Fortunately this guide offers you (the Visionary) a closer look at VAS and the chance to see storage differently.
This document contains the steps required to install a Proof-of-Concept (POC) environment for RDSH Full Desktop with FSLogix Apps. POC environments created according to this install guide can be used to test applications controlled by FSLogix Apps in a reproducible way. We build the environment in the cloud in order to minimize costs associated with required hardware, and to streamline the build process.
The testing environment is built entirely in Azure and contains an IaaS RDSH deployment including the supporting network and domain infrastructure. A non-Azure based client component accesses the RDSH deployment.
The private cloud offers most of the advantages of the public cloud: Self-service and scalability, multi-tenancy, the ability to provision machines, and change computing resources on-demand. Private cloud also improves on security by limiting access to key IT people. Complexities are emerging for DevOps teams around their "infrastructure as code" practices as larger companies consider moving their most business-critical applications off the public cloud and onto private/hybrid clouds.
Complexity issues include:
Private clouds are specialized cloud computing implementations that are purpose-built to address some limitation or shortcoming around the use of public clouds. Core factors that drive private cloud adoption are compliance, security, and even the sense of control that many in enterprise IT require. Or, think they require.
As DevOps organizations are built within enterprises, private clouds as the deployment platforms mesh well with existing DevOps automation approaches and tool sets. Those within enterprises can tell you that private clouds are a sound architectural option, and they require “some time.” Just as public clouds require “some time.” Most enterprises will end up with both, using hybrid or multi-cloud implementations. In this paper, we’ll focus on private clouds, and the steps to successfully implement private clouds.
Murdoch, of Amber Reef, uses this white paper to outline the necessary approach
to centrally control and manage FTAs for Word 2013 and WordViewer using
After addressing the reason and symptoms of
the issue, Duncan asserts, "If the desire is to 'Control the FTA' centrally
and manage the associations with FSLogix, preventing the users from overriding
the FTA settings," then "to achieve this you can create 2
separate FTA rules, one for Word 2013 and another for WordViewer."
applying these rules alongside the FSLogix Hiding rules for the applications,
then the Administrator can ensure that the FTA that is applied is the one that
they have allocated to the application group.
will also prevent a user from being able to right-click the file and assign
their OWN FTA preferences.
A concise, visual guide to implementing file type
associations when using App-V with FSLogix. Duncan Murdoch, of Amber Reef, uses
this white paper to show the precise steps for managing file type
associations (FTAs) when using App-V with FSLogix. As an example for managing
the file type associations for App-V packages, Duncan Murdoch demonstrates
the ease of this process with Adobe DC and FOX-IT Reader as published
applications. With a couple quick steps and a single FSLogix rule,
the proper FTAs are put in place for the desired default .pdf application.
