Resilient File Service aka Windows LVM

Some one did ask for how to use this for Storj.IO new crowd computing....

so simple way to do things...

One is Windows 10...

Windows > type Storage


and you see manage storage

and U will need 2 or more HDD connected to be able to use this.
External HDD can be added to the pool after you create the internal one

Else you will see the standard error


I will do a video when I do this properly...

Article 13 Access From EU

In anticipation of Brexit (Brits kicking the Euro-crats out) and the EU Article 13 Copyright policy.. We have to state as much...

Whilst many of the images etc are proprietary to the software copyright holders, we are not going to get it licensed as we have licensed the use of the software or services.

As such, users from EU are NOT ALLOWED to access data on my site or any sites I control. If you do, that's your choosing. As such , we are not held responsible for copyright claims under EU Law.

So ...go fish!

Gundu Guide to OpenVPN (Part 1)

In relation to many requests... I have decided to make one simple Gundu Guide list for some of you.
Starting with Creating a VPN for Dummies. This is useful for people who have HIGH SPEED INTERNET at home or Office and have little or no Linux knowledge.

Tools:
Google Cloud Compute Account
OpenVPN AS
Debit card to activate your Google Cloud Account
A little patience...or more of it.

There will be little images as example... so please accept my apologies... My Photoshop acct is blocked.

So now you will need to create a Google Cloud Account.
You can use my search on the side to find out.

Using your debit card to verify, you will get $300 in credits.
It will be enough.

Next up, you will need to activate your account. Enable the Billing so you can create instances.
So next up is to create your Instance. It takes a little tad of a few networking.

2 things needed to be done. U will need to create a firewall bypass and also a Linux Instance.
First off, go to firewall by clicking networking > Firewall Rules.
U can do a Open New Tab easily.

< Tag Bastion ,open-all-port

Scroll to your Console and Compute Engine
Create an Instance by going to the VM Instance.
Use 2vCPU 7GB Ram, Debian Jessie, 50GB will be fine


Resilient File Systems on Windows 10

ReFS - Have you heard about it?
Nope... I did not too, until recently. And I was quite puzzled by it.

So, back in Windows 8.0, Microsoft decided to allow desktop users to RAID in their computers without the need of a raid card. Yes. You heard me. No Raid Card.

Typically, if you need a Huge drive for your use, you will need to have an attached drive for your nonsense but with ReFS, the limit is gone. You can map them just as how LVM in Linux a virtual way.

But Hey.. there is something I found more sinister:

You can add SSD mixed type drives into the array.
You can add External HDD drives into the array!
You can map drives attached using your eSATA or other adaptations too...

So how it works...I doubt this may be true but here goes

E:\----> SSD (critical) ---> SAS ---> SATA---> External Drive for cold data

But hey.. thats far better than my Synology Drives
