Hi chaps.

It cost me £1149, but I’m listing it for £100 less.

It’s been used for maybe one hour, so I doubt I can return it.

Let me know if you want pics etc, obviously it will be boxed as new.

Cheers :)

Azure Backup service adds layer of data protection

more important to have a solid backup strategy for company data and workloads. Microsoft’s Azure Backup service has matured into a product worth considering due to its centralized management and ease of use.

Whether it’s ransomware or other kinds of malware, the potential for data corruption is always lurking. That means that IT admins need a way to streamline backup procedures with the added protection and high availability made possible by the cloud.

Azure Backup protects on-premises workloads — SharePoint, SQL Server, Exchange, file servers, client machines, VMs, and cloud resources like infrastructure-as-a-service VMs — into one recovery vault with solid data protection and restore capabilities. Administrators can monitor and start backup and recovery activities from a single Azure-based portal. After the initial setup, this arrangement lightens the burden on IT because off site backups require minimal time and effort to maintain.

How Azure Backup works

The Azure Backup service stores data in what Microsoft calls a recovery vault, which is the central storage locker for the service whether the backup targets are in Azure or on premises.

Whether it’s ransomware or other kinds of malware, the potential for data corruption is always lurking.

The administrator needs to create the recovery vault before the Azure Backup service can be used. From the Azure console, select All services, type in Recovery Services and select Recovery Services vaults from the menu. Click Add, give it a name, associate it with an Azure subscription, choose a resource group and location, and click Create.

From there, to back up on-premises Windows Server machines, open the vault and click the Backup button. Azure will prompt for certain information: whether the workload is on premises or in the cloud and what to back up — files and folders, VMs, SQL Server, Exchange, SharePoint instances, system state information, and data to kick off a bare-metal recovery. When this is complete, click the Prepare Infrastructure link.

[embedded content]

Configure backup for a Windows machine

The Microsoft Azure Recovery Services Agent (MARS) handles on-premises backups. Administrators download the MARS agent from the Prepare Infrastructure link — which also supplies the recovery vault credentials — and install it on the machines to protect. MARS picks up the recovery vault credentials to link the MARS agent instances of the on-premises machine to the Azure subscription and attendant recovery vault.

Azure Backup pricing

Microsoft determines Azure Backup pricing based on two components: the number of protected VMs or other instances — Microsoft charges for each discrete item to back up — and the amount of backup data stored within the service. The monthly pricing is:

  • for instances up to 50 GB, each instance is $5 per month, plus storage consumed;
  • for instances more than 50 GB, but under 500 GB, each instance is $10, plus storage consumed; and
  • for instances more than 500 GB, each instance is $10 per nearest 500 GB increment, plus storage consumed.

Microsoft bases its storage prices on block blob storage rates, which vary based on the Azure region. While it’s less expensive to use locally redundant blobs than geo-redundant blobs, local blobs are less fault-tolerant. Restore operations are free; Azure does not charge for outbound traffic from Azure to the local network.

Pros and cons of the Azure Backup service

The service has several features that are beneficial to the enterprise:

  • There is support to back up on-premises VMware VMs. Even though Azure is a Microsoft cloud service, the Azure Backup product will take VMware VMs as they are and back them up. It’s possible to install the agent inside the VM on the Windows Server workload, but it’s neater and cleaner to just back up the VM.
  • Administrators manage all backups from one console regardless of the target location. Microsoft continually refines the management features in the portal, which is very simple to use.
  • Azure manages storage needs and automatically adjusts as required. This avoids the challenges and capacity limits associated with on-premises backup tapes and hard drives.

The Azure Backup service isn’t perfect, however.

  • It requires some effort to understand pricing. Organizations must factor in what it protects and how much storage those instances will consume.
  • The Azure Backup service supports Linux, but it requires the use of a customized copy of System Center Data Protection Manager (DPM), which is more laborious compared to the simplicity and ease of MARS.
  • Backing up Exchange, SharePoint and SQL workloads requires the DPM version that supports those products. Microsoft includes it with the service costs, so there’s no separate licensing fee, but it still requires more work to deploy and understand.

The Azure Backup service is one of the more compelling administrative offerings from Microsoft. I would not recommend it as a company’s sole backup product — local backups are still very important, and even more so if time to restore is a crucial metric for the enterprise — but Azure Backup is a worthy addition to a layered backup strategy.

Skype Interviews Scheduler—helping recruiters simplify the interview process | Skype Blogs

Scheduling job interviews with multiple interviewers and candidates can be a complicated and time-consuming task, one that can easily account for a significant portion of a recruiter’s workload. Today, a new integrated scheduling app—built on the Skype Interviews platform—significantly streamlines the interview scheduling process.

Introducing Skype Interviews Scheduler, designed to simplify the process of scheduling interviews—as well as reduce the number of steps required to send an invite. With an embedded interview link, candidates can launch an interview directly from their calendar. In addition, Skype Interviews Scheduler can also become an integrated part of your recruitment workflows via APIs.

The power of Skype Interviews Scheduler

Scheduler is easy to use—making it a powerful tool for recruiters. Simply sign in to Scheduler, click Schedule new Interview, and then select the type of interview that is being scheduled.

Next, input the candidate and interviewer’s name and email address, and either enter an agreed-upon time and date for the interview, or select the Smart Scheduler—which will arrange the interviewer and candidate’s interview.

Once available time slots are selected, Scheduler sends a notification to the candidate to accept or decline.

After the candidate selects a timeslot, each participant is automatically sent a calendar invite, which they can click to join the interview directly from the email. No download or Skype ID is required to join. From the Skype Interviews dashboard, recruiters can see what times candidates have selected and make further amendments to interviews if needed.

Make Skype Interviews Scheduler part of your recruitment workflow

We are looking for platform partners who want to integrate the Skype Interviews Scheduler functionality within their platform, dramatically streamlining the scheduling process for recruiters, coordinators, interviewers, and candidates alike. Your input will help shape the future of Skype Interviews. Sign up for early access to our developer API now.

Samsung announces new Notebook 9 and Notebook 9 Pen with Windows 10
This week, Samsung announced the new Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and three new versions of the Samsung Notebook 9 (2018), offering a mobile computing experience that matches how people are using their PCs: whether at work, on the go and everything in between.

Samsung Notebook 9 Pen: Superb flexibility, portability with S Pen and convertible hinge
The Notebook 9 Pen brings a thoughtfully refined design to the 2-in-1 PC. Its full metal chassis with a premium magnesium aluminum alloy called Metal12 provides durability while keeping it super light at 2.2 pounds. The 360-degree hinge provides flexibility to convert to a tablet from a laptop with ease by rotating the keyboard behind the screen for convenience. The Notebook 9 Pen has a built-in, refined S Pen that gives you the freedom to doodle, write, sketch, paint and more with Windows Ink. The S Pen is battery-free, built into the device and designed for immediate use.
Samsung Notebook 9 (2018): Powerful design, yet lightweight and thin
With three different versions offering a 13.3” to a 15” screen and enhanced graphics capabilities, the Notebook 9 (2018) weighs up to only 2.84 pounds and measures 15.4mm. The bezel around the screen measures 6.2mm providing a more immersive experience. This means great portability without sacrificing screen size, as well as a stronger, more durable metal body featuring Metal12. The device also provides always-on power thanks to the 75Wh Hexacell battery.
Availability: The Samsung Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 (2018) will be available in select countries starting in December 2017 in Korea, and in the first quarter of 2018 in the U.S. Both the Notebook 9 Pen and Notebook 9 (2018) will be displayed at CES 2018 in Las Vegas, NV.

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds now available on Xbox One

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds is available now as a console launch exclusive on Xbox One! Since we first announced PUBG would be coming to Xbox at E3 2017, it’s been amazing to see the excitement and anticipation fans have shared and on behalf of everyone at PUBG Corp., we want to thank you for your support.
PUBG is a battle royale-style game which puts up to 100 players on the remote island of Erangel for a winner-takes-all showdown. Each game starts the same – you jump out of an airplane over an island, look for a safe (or dangerous) place to land, scramble for armor, weapons and health kits, and try to stay alive as the safe zone becomes smaller and smaller, forcing players to keep moving to survive.
We chose to bring PUBG to console on Xbox One in the Xbox Game Preview program, as it’s the only console platform that gives us the opportunity to partner with the community and build the game together, much like we did with the PC version. The experience you have in PUBG on Xbox One today will be somewhat similar to what we shipped back in March on PC, but with a few updates. In addition, to support for third-person solo, duo, and squad gameplay on the current Erangel map, PUBG on Xbox One will also feature vaulting at its launch into the Xbox Game Preview program. On Xbox One X, the game will be enhanced to include HDR support and 4K resolution, with more details to come.  While in the Xbox Game Preview program, PUBG on Xbox One will continue to receive new content updates including the new desert map, “Miramar,” optimizations and more. Our goal is to unify the feature set and product roadmap of the PC and Xbox versions of the game as soon as possible.
