Store and share files in the cloud.

Yesterday Google Apps announced they are rolling out the ability for Google Apps users to upload and securely share any type of file internally and externally using Google Docs. Every Google Apps Standard Edition users will have 1GB free storage. If think this is good, check out Microsoft Skydrive free 25GB storage. Yes, you read it right 25GB storage. I will check Microsoft Skydrive service and will share this to you in another post.

Question for Google Apps, do you think you can offer higher free service comparable to Microsoft Skydrive? With Google Apps announcement, the Google Apps Premier Edition will be able to purchase additional storage for $3.5/GB/yr.
Here's the pricing per user per year.

5GB - $17.50
20GB - $70.00
80GB - $280.00
200GB - $700.00
400GB - $1,400.00
1TB - $3,500.00
2TB - $7,000.00
4TB - $14,000.00
8TB - $28,000.00
16TB - $56,000.00



As of this time, they have no plan of increasing their 1GB free storage.
Google Apps also introduce some cool online tools for your business, here's the list.
  • Memeo Connect for Google Apps is a new desktop application that offers an easy way to access, migrate, and synchronize files to Google Docs across multiple computers. Free for the first 30 days.
  • Syncplicity offers businesses automated back-up and file management with Google Docs. This is not a free service. The Google Apps Premier Edition customers will receive 3 months free in first annual subscription.
  • Manymoon is an online project management platform that makes it simple to organize and share tasks and documents with coworkers and partners, including uploading files to Google Docs. This is a free service.
That's for now.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
