    Fastest cloud storage for Fiber 1 Gbps + connection

    Try to estimate the amount of storage you are going to need for your images and compare that cost to a cheap NAS. I have a Netgear ReadyNAS 4 bay on my network and it does a pretty decent job of holding my files. The downside though is that drives can be expensive and they will eventually wear...

    Fastest cloud storage for Fiber 1 Gbps + connection

    What do you want to use it for? The cost for cloud storage adds up pretty quickly so you should definitely know how you are going to use it before committing to the spend.

    Corsair Gaming Audio Series™ SP2500 High-power 2.1 PC Speaker System Drawing

    I'm switching between a Creative system (https://www.newegg.com/creative-inspire-p7800/p/N82E16836116153?Item=N82E16836116153) I picked up forever ago and an extra soundbar I had lying around (https://support.vizio.com/s/article/SB3851-C0-Model-Information?language=en_US). I'm really not sure...

    How feasible is this?

    I worked on a project where we established backup to cloud as a substitute for tape and AWS with storage policies to move the older stuff to Glacier. If your looking at a way to dip your toes in the water and come off as the cost-savings hero, that's a pretty good first step.

    How feasible is this?

    Moving to SaaS offerings is a good move for most companies. Often times it enables them to purchase a real enterprise-class solution for a fraction of what it would have cost them to build/support something on-prem. However, moving your internal or customer-facing systems to the cloud...

    RTX 2070 or RTX 2080?

    I recently picked up a 2070 to replace an ancient 680 which was no longer able to make min settings in games. Aside from a few annoying delays after initial loading, it's running BF5 at 4k at max settings with ray tracing enabled. In my case, it made sense to finally drop the $$ for an upgrade...

    Need advise on gaming crashes and HW changes

    PSU is definitely my first suspicion but heat or low fan speed could cause thermal protection to kick in and cause a hard shutdown.

    Server load problem

    Production and non-production/development are fuzzy definitions meant to assign a qualitative value to performance capabilities. I have multiple production domain controllers and jump hosts running in Azure using their equivalent of t2 instances and I've seen no performance related problems. The...

    Server load problem

    Caching is a good idea and definitely one of the go-to options AWS would recommend. Are you actually running out of CPU credits during peak load times or is there something else causing the performance issue?

    Azure vs AWS - What is your experience?

    Oh, and did I mention that because Azure changes so rapidly and they have two portals (classic officially retires this January) that most of the documentation you will find is out of date?

    Azure vs AWS - What is your experience?

    My company uses both but my division has standardized on Azure. Azure just feels like it's perpetually in public beta with so many features "coming soon". We like to say that Azure is "just a little bit wrong" in pretty much every service they offer. My biggest gripes: 1 The API is constantly...

    Gaming Keypads

    Hmm, try before I buy. Might be difficult but I'll see if any of the local stores have some in stock.

    That's very useful! So, when the chips are down, which one should I get?
