This article provides a world life example of how to design serverless architecture solutions in the cloud. I am yet to use the teletext.io (the solution they have developed), so I can’t comment on its relevance as a CMS but I can highly recommend the the way in which they have leveraged AWS Lambda, API Gateway, DynamoDB and S3 to build a completely serverless solution.

If you are interested in learning how to architect and develop solutions using modern day cloud principles then I highly recommend this article.

Active Directory is awesome, but for it to be effective it needs to be maintained and loved. An important maintenance step is cleanup, which involves removing objects that are no longer in use or required. These include:

  • User Accounts
  • Computer Objects
  • Empty Groups
  • Empty Organizational Units (OU)

Recently I wrote a guest article for Adaxes to cleanup Active Directory using PowerShell. Along with all of the details and how-to I developed a complete PowerShell toolkit that cleans up your Active Directory environment for you automatically. These tools can be scheduled and can be configured to search a certain scope, exclude certain types of objects and you can also choose the type of processing you want to do when you find inactive AD objects. The options available are report, disable and\or delete.

All of the details and links to the PowerShell scripts to get you started to cleanup Active Directory are available in the article on the Adaxes blog. Clicking on the title of this post will get you there.
