Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute (options and benefits)

ExpressRoute overview
Microsoft Azure ExpressRoute lets you extend your on-premises networks into the Microsoft cloud over a private connection facilitated by a connectivity provider. With ExpressRoute, you can establish connections to Microsoft cloud services, such as Microsoft Azure, Office 365, and Dynamics 365.

Connectivity can be from an any-to-any (IPVPN) network, a point-to-point Ethernet network, or a virtual cross-connection through a connectivity provider at a co-location facility.

All Fun and Games Until a Restore Point Is Needed

In all my years as an IT professional, there has not been a situation that I have gotten into that a good old System Restore Point couldn’t fix. Yeah sure its not the best form of backup and it doesn’t save any documents or restore any documents. However, how many times have we gotten our self into a predicament where we wish we had a restore point? Whether it was a regular Windows update that went bad.

Understanding Email Archiving

There comes a time in every email account when your mailbox storage reaches it's limit. In the case of Office 365, used in conjunction with Outlook 2016, the standard threshold is 50 gigabytes. If you've reached the standard threshold and your mail is no longer sending or receiving, you can quickly free up some space by clearing out your deleted items folder.

DFARS and NIST 800-171 are you Compliant?

 What is NIST 800-171?
The Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) 252.204.7012 establishes NIST 800-171 as the minimum security standard a contractor should have to adequately protect Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI). This publication was issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).  NIST 800-171 provides guidance for the protection of CUI when processed, stored and used in non-federal information systems.

Redirect Printers on RDS and RemoteApp Servers (2008 and 2012 R2)

Printer Redirection is a feature that allows a local printer to be mapped to a remote machine, and allows printing across a network. Invalid, unusable redirected printers may appear in a Remote Desktop Services session causing slowness.
Problem:
Over time, Terminal Servers and RemoteApp servers can build a long list of redirected printers.

When Embedded Hyperlinks Fail us

It’s common to send hyperlinks within various communication formats such as text messaging, and social networking posts, but hyperlinks are most commonly used in regular email.  Have you ever received a URL link in a email and it fails to open or results in displaying a blank page? If you've experienced this, it could be an issue with your “Default Programs” setting.
