Therefore, let see what the expectation of certification in professional architect Azure Solutions Architect The professional architect should understand Implement and monitor an Azure infrastructure Implement management and security solutions Implement solutions for apps Implement and manage data platforms Design monitoring Design identity and security Design data storage Design business continuity Design infrastructure AWS Professional Architect The professional architect on AWS should understand Design and deploy dynamically scalable, highly available, fault-tolerant, and reliable applications on AWS Select appropriate AWS services to design and deploy an application based on given requirements Migrate complex, multi-tier applications on AWS Design and deploy enterprise-wide scalable operations on AWS Implement cost-control strategies Learning as Architect You can learn to become architect by joining digital training such as: Microsoft Certified: Azure Solutions Architect Expert - Learn | Microsoft Docs Exam Readiness: AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Professional | AWS Training & Certification The Real Architect You should learn by doing, so lab is better You should learn by reading a lot of material You should practices problem – solution

Managing Organizational Digital Assets in NAS

Your organization produces digital assets every day. Receipt from a customer, invoice from a vendor, slides from your partner, or even reimburse from business expenses. The digital assets should be saved for regulatory standards such as tax reports, financial reports, and organization performance reports. Today, I will discuss how to manage your digital assets in the NAS or the cloud. Requirements Before you deep dive into the solution. Let us prepare what we need to provide better digital assets management. You have cloud storage for your organization. It means your organization has a cloud subscription such as Microsoft 365 subscription. You have a NAS device for your organization. My recommendation is to invest in some knowledge brand such as Synology or anything. medianet_width = "600"; medianet_height = "250"; medianet_crid = "858385152"; medianet_versionId = "3111299"; Where do I need to store? Backup should be there when we discuss organizational mindset. Therefore, you need to store in bot cloud and local. The question is where to put it? In the cloud or in local? I give you a table to make a clear decision. Size. Your file sizes. Low means < 1 GB, High means > 1 GB. Usefulness, the frequency of access. Low means monthly or higher, High means weekly or daily. Editable, low means archive, high means live document. IDSizeUsefulness EditableRecommended StorageHLLHighLowLowCloudHHLHighHighLowNASHHHHighHighHighBothLLLLowLowLowCloudLHLLowHighLowNASLHHLowHighHighBothHLHHighLowHighNASLLHLowLowHighCloud  The result of the recommendation is: Cloud. You store in the cloud such as OneDrive for Business or SharePoint NAS. You are storing in your local location Both. You are storing in both environments. You can do that by configuring such as active backup for 365 NAS provides you better investment for higher size and quick access in the organization. Cloud provides you better high availability and resilience. Both will give you the ultimate advantage. Regardless of the rule, If you have a spare infrastructure be sure to back up in both environments! Let us classify your digital assets After you understand where to put your data, you can now classify which one. I will give you several examples. You can see the types of document and where we store it. For example, I have tax documents, I put classification to LHL so it will be stored in NAS Types of DocumentClassification IDTax Documents LHLFinancial Report LHHVM Template for employee HHLVideo of Organization WebinarHLLBusiness Proposal LHH  Of course, you can create your classification with your document types. Managing Your NAS My recommendation when you buy a NAS, it is buying with at least four hard drive bay with cache acceleration like Synology DS920+, the reasons are: Rather than using an external hard drive, NAS is providing you a boost in reading and writing because of its cache. You can expand through an expansion unit when your business is growing! Rather than buy a new NAS you can expand it. You can host your local web solution (PHP) with a faster response. Versus you invest in server or hosting. You can get better indexing support in images and documents. Versus your index in local computer You can do sync and backup without turn on your computer. You can backup your account or the entire organization You can implement RAID for better security and performance. You can implement various RAID. medianet_width = "600"; medianet_height = "250"; medianet_crid = "858385152"; medianet_versionId = "3111299";

The Pervasive Cloud “Cloud Anywhere for Anyone”

Sooner or later, you will find your love with the cloud. Even, you don’t want to use the Microsoft Azure, you still use OneDrive or Facebook that use the cloud infrastructure. The term cloud is too expensive for any related information that stored and manipulated to the internet. Today, we will discuss about how the cloud improves our alignment in term of technology and our business. Cloud means anything It started with the shared photo on social media and then a bunch files on DropBox, after that a software package that can running well by connecting and gathering information in the internet. The cloud technology and jargon grows radically and evolutionary. When you speak to your personal assistant like Cortana you will find that he use the cloud for recognizing your voice, when you types a word on Google keyboard, they will store your words to google server and prepare it as words of dictionary. The cloud means anything, even you don’t want to Learn cloud computing is investment Today you will find a great productivity by using the cloud. I remember last time I should copy my source code files to the hosting FTP and it’s take an hour to configure, to upload, and to test. Today, with the Microsoft Azure and Visual Studio Online, you can put your source codes on DropBox, sync your codes with your team through online TFS, and deploy it automatically to your cloud spaces. Learn cloud computing means a better way to improve your productivity. the focus of a cloud on the consumer side is focus only on your core business not your it infrastructure Delivering best QOS (Quality of Services) of a system or information Increasing your productivity by integrating several services into one single solution If you want to start learning process in the cloud this is the right time! I suggest you to learn cloud computing fundamental certification then stay tune by learning on Microsoft Virtual Academy  The Cloud isn’t cheap but is really valuable You might compare the cloud with the traditional hosting provider. if you do that, please thinks again, you compares apple with watermelon. it’s different things, even hosting is a part of the cloud. Therefore, the cloud is just like all-in-one services meanwhile hosting is just a part of the solution. if you think hosting provider is enough never think to move to the cloud since it still a lot cheaper at least for this year. But someday, when you need scalability and free hassle you will find the cloud is the answer Learn a cloud from the book I found this book is usefull, you should try it out
