Hello IT Pro,

Welcome back to IT Pro Tuesday!

As always, we’re updating the full list on our website here. Enjoy.

But on with this week's tools...! Here are the most-interesting items that have come across our desks, laptops and phones this week. EveryCloud has no known affiliation with any of these unless we explicitly state otherwise.

Popular Repost: Tool

Graylog provides an open-source Linux tool for log management. Seamlessly collects, enhances, stores and analyzes log data in a central dashboard. Features multi-threaded search and built-in fault tolerance that ensures distributed, load-balanced operation. Enterprise version is free for under 5GB per day.

A Tip

A helpful shortcut from starmizzle:

Create a folder named
GodMode.{ED7BA470-8E54-465E-825C-99712043E01C}
to get a folder full of handy master control panel options

 

A Free Tool

Docker is a container runtime that runs on various Linux (CentOS, Debian, Fedora, Oracle Linux, RHEL, SUSE and Ubuntu) and Windows Server operating systems. It creates simple tooling and a universal packaging approach that bundles all application dependencies inside a container that runs on Docker Engine. Docker Engine enables containerized applications to run anywhere consistently on any infrastructure. Suggested by slacker87 "because everything is easier when it's in a container."

Another Tool

G1ANT.Studio is RPA software that allows you to create a robot to automate any repetitive tasks. Gives you complete freedom over what can be automated. It differs from other off-the-shelf automation solutions by allowing you to integrate web and desktop apps, with no limitations and much higher performance and security. Though not actually free, it is economical for such capable RPA software. This one was brought to our attention by cmpaxu_nampuapxa.

A Blog

Sysadmin Chronicles is a system administration blog written by Artur Tyksinski. Focuses mostly on virtualization, MSP, cybersecurity and Linux. His goal is to "have a guide for every single thing I’ve ever had to do more than once… [and to] empower other System Administrators and people working in IT with the solutions to all sorts of problems."

 

P.S. Bonus Free Tools

SQL Server Maintenance Solution provides scripts for running backups, integrity checks and index and statistics maintenance on all editions of Microsoft SQL Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 R2, SQL Server 2012, SQL Server 2014, SQL Server 2016, SQL Server 2017, and SQL Server 2019. Recommended by PedroAlvarez.

GYB (Got Your Back) is a command-line tool for backing up and restoring a Gmail account. Backs up your Gmail messages to your local computer, using Gmail's API over HTTPS. Works with Gmail.com and G Suite (formerly known as Google Apps) accounts. Kindly suggested by FireItUpMatt.

 

Have a fantastic week and as usual, let me know any comments.
