comment Systematic deletion of files from RAID drive
No file system logging capabilities on the mac? WIndows has them - normally off (it is a crapton of stuff that gets logged) but you can turn them on. Maybe OSX has something similar?

comment Stop China from connecting to my Google Compute Engine server
Nothing Yeesh here. They count all traffic incoming to the virtual server. They do not care what the virtual server does then. SImple,and standard.

comment How to send “ATA Secure Erase” command to SSD?
It should be noted that there are drives encrypting the content - and they also forget the key, so the data is not only "random" (missing the metadata to reconstruct it), but also encrypted with an unrecoverable key... that allows the SAFE deletion of SSD and hard discs in pretty much milliseconds. Hardware storage encryption is a standard feature today on most enterprise hardware.

comment Can't use login.live.com or Visual Studio Online on Windows Server 2012 R2
Yes, it would - remote debugging is meant exactly for not installing visual studio on a server. It is like real debugging.... remote. And, nicely speaking - this smells like a resource leak that are quite easy to find.... with a profiler. Did you install desktop experience?

Have you considered using remote debugging instead of loading up the server with all that stuff? DId you install desktop experience on the server?

comment Windows Server 2012r2 virtualized domain controller
Yeah. "It did not work so well" means what? Hyper-V level restore works like a charm here.... that said, I use DPM for backing up the complete infrastructure.

An admin? We do not deal with end users here - as per site FAQ. If you do not know how to administrate your server, your admin should be here asking the question.

That depends whether IO Will be your problem. The IO side will be a lot faster - but whether the machine will be depends on the measurements you should have been taking before posting here.

comment How to virtualize a dedicated server
We do not do product recommendations here as per site FAQ. Maybe spend an hour doing basic research yourself? That server is, btw., quite unsuitable for virtualization with that ridiculously low performance storage system. I would suggest starting 64mb ram either with only ssd or with something like 8 velcicpators in a Rad 10 for the virtual machines - and even then it will be slow during heavy operations.

comment What is the definition of High Availability?
wrong. 99% HA requires no investment. Heck, a computer shop around the corner can replace whatever fails in a day and things do not fail that often. It is past 99.9% things get complicated. But 99% is "know how to order a replacement computer on any retail outlet".

comment What is the definition of High Availability?
I would argue that availability class 2 is normal today - that is what you can get with a normal computer. 1% downtime is more than 3 days per year.
