comment PCI scan showing false positives on cloud-based server
Are you saying that you're in a shared hosting environment? Shared hosting is not the same thing a "cloud server." To us, "cloud server" means "dynamically provisioned virtual machine running on unspecified hardware in someone else's datacenter," not "user account on a shared web server." Generic shared hosting is probably not appropriate for your business needs.

comment With 200TB of needed storage, is a SAN a good idea?
@ZellFaze Be careful with "backup" strategies that are actually high-availability strategies meant to protect uptime to control for hardware failures and site outages. Would replication protect against accidental deletion, sabotage by a disgruntled employee, etc.? There's value in having backups that are both offsite and effectively offline.

This defies logic. If you are going to use "the cloud" to send your e-mail, why not use a cloud e-mail service? Your general-purpose VPS surely has the potential to create long-term administration and security headaches.

comment Server Reboot Script - No Credentials
Why haven't you posted a question about the underlying issue? It's probably interesting. My doctor wouldn't be amused if I asked her for a way to keep the blood stains off my bed. She would want to find out why I was bleeding.
