A (Non) Profitable Journey–Part 2 C

August 24, 2015

In my last couple of posts I described the fun I was having with trying to set up a coupe of open source firewalls to work in a fashion similar to what I normally do for my “paying” customers.  The results were less than stellar, I’m afraid, and I ended up pulling the firewalls.  But, Read More

Office 365 and Backup

August 10, 2015

You may or may not have noticed but there are a raft of Office 365 backup services popping up right, left and centre.  This might seem odd but actually it is just the market reacting to a void in the overall services structure that Microsoft has crafted with Office 365.  Let me explain … Microsoft Read More

A (non) Profitable Journey–Part 2 B

August 5, 2015

Well, it would seem that the golden rule of “if you rush, it will break” has already kicked in … First, a correction:  I stated in my last post that the free edition of Veeam allows for individual fie restores, that is incorrect.  I was basing my comments on the information on Veeam’s site which Read More

A (non) Profitable Journey–Part 2

August 4, 2015

As promised, this is the second post in a series of posts about work I’m doing at the Swan Lake Christmas Hill Nature Sanctuary in Victoria.  As you may recall from my first post, I said that I would document the good, the bad and the ugly!  Well, here we go with some of everything! Read More

Windows 10 for Business Adopters

July 15, 2015

We’ve been chatting internally at itgroove about Windows 10 (and playing with it, of course!) and we are taking a stance regarding corporate adoption that is probably pretty common.  Before you jump on the bandwagon you need to put Windows 10 on a test box and test the daylights out of all of your custom Read More

A (Non)Profitable Journey — Part 1

July 12, 2015

I am embarking on a series of posts about how non-profits can benefit from Office 365, the Microsoft programs for non-profits and a bunch of other goodies on the side, all to better help non-profits squeeze every ounce of value they can from their limited financial resources.  And this won’t all just be “theory”, I’ll Read More

Uncle Rob’s Office 365 Migration Primer – Part 2

July 7, 2015

This is the second part of my discussion about methods of migrating from on-premise Exchange to Office 365. In the first part of the discussion I identified some key things you need to know about Exchange and Outlook and I described the simple migration methodology of using PST files to move data between your old, Read More

Office 365 – Be mindful of the “Domains” that you enter in your tenancy

June 19, 2015

This is just a quick little post to remind you to be “mindful” of the domains you configure in your Office 365 tenancy, specially so when you are at the first steps of setting up a new tenancy. People who don’t deal with this stuff on a day-in, day-out basis can get confused about all Read More

Uncle Rob’s Office 365 Migration Primer – Part 1

June 6, 2015

I had a meeting last week with a non-profit and during our discussions I heard many of the same things that I have heard in the past which indicate a total lack of understanding on the part of the end-user organization as to how their Outlook and Exchange actually work.  And it isn’t just end-users Read More

Office 365 – Datacentres coming to Canada!

June 2, 2015

Microsoft announced this morning (June 2, 2015) that Office 365, Azure and CRM would soon be available out of Canadian datacentres!  This is a monumental announcement for all of the Canadian organizations that have wanted to move to O365 or other Microsoft Cloud services and have been blocked by real (or perceived) privacy issues and Read More
