Why I use CloudShare

I discovered CloudShare when I started working on a project for one of my customers. In order to complete the project, I had to prepare a Microsoft Project Server 2010 demo but did not have access to an environment in which to do so. Read the rest of this entry »

Migrating SharePoint Environments To and From CloudShare

March 28th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Dev / Test, SharePoint | Tags: , , , ,


One of the elements of development and testing is moving structure and content to your development environment. Once you build a solution, you need to move what you built back to your production environment. In the world of SharePoint, this process, depending on what type of solution you build, can be a few button clicks, or involve some coding.

Love My CloudShare

February 9th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: CloudShare, SharePoint | Tags: , , , ,


Recently I had to get a SharePoint Foundation environment up pretty quickly to test a branding solution that was built for a client. Kris Wagner had always talked up CloudShare, so I decided to give it a try.  Easy was not the word, it was easier than easy and now I am hooked.

Our company purchased a few licenses for CloudShare and I have to say this makes life easier for our IT gurus.  They were frequently asked at the last minute to build XYZ in the cloud for this demo or this project.  Now they can focus on more important tasks and the developers and I can spin up almost any environment needed in minutes.

Is it cloudy out? The puntiful work of CloudShare and other observations

February 7th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: CloudShare | Tags: , , , ,


Having been “the new girl” at CloudShare for an entire week now, I figure it’s time to share my thoughts, observations, and more.

First, a little about me – I’ve never worked at a startup or a tech company.  I come from an advising and student services background, specifically for an MBA program.  I come from a land of dress codes, red tape, limited funds, and very little room for thinking outside the box, or in the cloud.

So, at this point you’re probably wondering, why am I here?  My work in advising led me to pursue my MA in Media, Culture, and Communication, because I’m interested in the role media plays in shaping our perceptions on gender, race, and identity.  As you all know, technology is a major contributor to media proliferation, so I found myself regularly taking courses on how technology affects society.

How to increase your hard disk size in one of your virtual machines – Part I!

December 29th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: CloudShare, Dev / Test | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , ,


One common requirement when you are working with a virtualized environment like any of those provided by CloudShare Pro Plus offering is the ability of increasing hardware (like disk capacity or available RAM) capacity on demand. For instance, imagine you want to test Visual Studio 11 Developer Preview in one of your virtual machines so that you will need some free GBs in order to install and start running it. If you don’t fulfill this installation requirement, the installation wizard will show you a warning message telling you need to clean your drive or try to install Visual Studio 11 in another one.

How to share your environment with team members!

December 12th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: CloudShare, SharePoint | Tags: , , , , ,


CloudShare allows not only to share your environment with others as I described in the article “How To use a CloudShare shared environment at least 14 days”, but it also simplifies the process of sharing it in real time with other Team Members through CloudShare “Assign Team Members” functionality available in your environment. And this is really great when talking about Team Work using CloudShare because it allows collaboration and simultaneous work in the same environment to several Team Members in an organization. The process you must follow to assign a team member to your CloudShare environment is quite straight forward:
