Calculating Dell Power Consumption for Servers

We are in the process of building out a new data center. One of the items I needed to know was a rough estimate of our new, monthly electrical bill. In some cases, you may need to show a return on investment (ROI) for going to a virtualized environment using VMWare or Microsoft Hyper-V. You can calculate the number of watts your devices use by visiting http://www.dell.com/calc.

If you need to calculate cost of power, you can convert watts to kilowatts (watts / 1000), then multiply that by 24 hours, 30 days, and the cost per kwh. So, if you live in an area that has a cost per kilowatt hour at 9.5 cents and your equipment uses 2500 watts, your total cost per month would be $171 per month.

Union Européenne : Stratégie Cloud Computing


Bonsoir tout le monde,

L’informatique dans les nuages (Cloud Computing) se dĂ©veloppe…
Le taux d’adoption des services de Cloud est en pleine croissance.

Une Ă©tude rĂ©cente (http://cordis.europa.eu/fp7/ict/ssai/docs/20090730-d2-eu-ssbs-industry_en.pdf ) a prĂ©dit un taux de croissance annuel composĂ© de 19,5 % en informatique dans les nuages. Selon le Gartner Group, l’industrie est prĂŞte pour une croissance forte vers 2014; les recettes mondiales des services Cloud pourraient atteindre les 150 milliards de dollars.
http://www.informationweek.in/Cloud_Computing/10-06-22/Global_cloud_services_market_to_surpass_USD_68_billion_in_2010.aspx

Si vous vous sentez concernés par le devenir de ces services de Cloud en300x250_Download_Student_Dreamspark Europe et si vous avez une expérience, une première expérience ou tout simplement une vision bien claire de ce que vous voudriez pour ces services, pouquoi ne pas le le faire savoir ?

La commission europĂ©enne lance une consultation publique – jusqu’Ă  fin aout prochain – visant Ă  Ă©laborer une stratĂ©gie pour l’UE sur le Cloud Computing. A ce titre, elle mis en place un questionnaire pour reccueillir nos idĂ©es de manière aussi dĂ©taillĂ©es que possible.

Les rĂ©ponses ne sont pas toutes obligatoires ce qui laisse une certaine marge de manĹ“uvre et permet de rĂ©pondre seulement lĂ  oĂą notre expĂ©rience peut s’exprimer.

Pour répondre à ce questionnaire (en anglais) : http://ec.europa.eu/yourvoice/ipm/forms/dispatch?form=cloudcomputing&lang=en

Bonne soirée.

Owa Redirect bedingt das der Download des OAB fehlschlägt in Office 2007/2010

Häufig gibt es in Foren oder in Mailinglisten die Nachfrage warum der Download des Adressbuches nicht funktioniert. Über ein weiteres mögliches Problem bin ich gestern gestolpert. Wenn man einen Redirect in Owa konfiguriert, beispielsweise um den Usern zu ermöglichen im Browser einfach “owa” einzugeben anstatt immer den FQDN und https voranstellen zu müssen. Wie das mit Exchange 2010 funktioniert hat Microsoft im Technet beschrieben.

Leider passiert dann außer das der Redirect sich vererbt auch noch eine andere “Unschönheit”. In der Datei web.config im OAB-Verzeichnis (default zu finden unter c:program filesmicrosoftexchangev14clientaccessoab ) wird die Berechtigung Read & Execute für Authentifizierte Benutzer entfernt. Nachvollziehen kann man das folgendermaßen. Im Browser die Adresse des OAB´s eingeben (get-oabvirtualdirectory | internalUrl auf der Powershell zeigt die Url an). Wenn dort “500 Serverfehler” erscheint hat die Datei die falschen Berechtigungen. Erscheint ein Anmeldefenster sollte es passen.

So sollte das Aussehen wenn die Berechtigung fĂĽr die User richtig gesetzt ist:

Microsoft Office 365 est en ligne !


Salut chers lecteurs,

Le successeur de BPOS, Office 365 est désormais disponible, en ligne et ce, en 20 langues et dans 40 pays.

Office 365 est décliné en plusieurs offres à partir de 5,25 euros / mois destinées aux TPE/PME mais également aux grandes entreprises et utilisateurs occasionnels.

Durant la période beta, 70% des utilisateurs étaient des PME ce qui montre et laisse entendre que ces offres intéresseraient surtout les TPE/PME.

Principaux avantages d’Office 365
- Accès Ă  la messagerie, contacts,calendrier, documents depuis "n’importe quel endroit de la planète" ;-)
- Collaboration simple et sécurisée avec vos collègues et partenaires,
- Fonctionne avec Office 2010,
- Support technique tĂ©lĂ©phonique, rĂ©plication des donnĂ©es, rĂ©cupĂ©ration d’urgence, système de sĂ©curitĂ© performant, confidentialitĂ© des donnĂ©es,
- Solutions complètes incluant des applications bureautiques, messagerie vocale, conférence audio/vidéo et virtuelles, portails intranet/extranet et site web externe,
- Abonnement par utilisateur, paiement mensuel ou annuel.

Selon l’offre choisie, sont inclus : Microsoft Office, Exchange Online, Sharepoint Online, Lync Online.

L’avantage indĂ©niable de ces offres rĂ©side dans le fait que l’ergonomie et l’interface utilisateur sont identiques Ă  celle qu’offre la suite Office 2010.

Contrairement Ă  ce qu’avance certains autres Ă©diteurs, Office 365 offre des outils rĂ©ellement simples d’utilisation dans un environnement dĂ©sormais connu depuis Office 2007.

Les temps d’accès offrent une utilisation fluide ce qui laisse l’utilisateur sur une notion de confort de travail proche de celle qu’il pourrait ressentir en travaillant avec des applications locales. Et tout cela au sein d’un système sĂ©curisĂ©…

RelĂ©guĂ©s loin derrière les problèmes de matĂ©riels rĂ©seau qu’a pu connaitre BPOS. Le tout nouveau, tout neuf Office 365 devrait convaincre bon nombre d’utilisateurs professionnels.

Bonne soirée.
Patrice.

Neuer Artikel auf msisafaq.de: Hinzufuegen und Entfernen weiterer Netze bei SafeSearch

Mit Update 1 für Forefront TMG 2010 wurde das neue Feature SafeSearch implementiert, mit dem es möglich ist bei den gängigen Suchmaschinen in den Ergebnissen Inhalte mit erotischen oder pornografischen Inhalten herauszufiltern. Bislang konnte diese Funktion im Browser aktiviert werden, jedoch konnte man diese dort auch wieder deaktivieren. Dadurch, dass die Anfrage über Forefront TMG 2010 gesendet wird, verändert SafeSearch automatisch die Anfrage so, dass von der Suchmaschine nur gefilterte Inhalte zurück geliefert werden. Dies macht ein Deaktivieren der Funktion im Browser des Benutzers unwirksam, da durch die SafeSearch-Funktion von Forefront TMG 2010 und nicht durch die Browserfunktion die Anfrage verändert wird. Die SafeSearch-Funktion von Forefront TMG 2010 erkennt, dass es sich bei dieser Anfrage um eine Suchanfrage einer Suchmaschine handelt und fügt der Abfrage-URL automatisch das entsprechende Suffix zur Aktivierung der sicheren Suche mit gefilterten Inhalten hinzu.
