RISC OS software to download from !PackMan

The Iconbar - Fri, 06/23/2017 - 06:00
In a previous article we looked at !PackMan and !Store. In this article we are going to highlight some of the software available in !PackMan and ask for your suggestions.

When you run !PackMan, it offers you a long list of files (with some nice category and filter options). You can see these in the screenshots below (click on the images for the full sized versions).

When you choose a program it brings up a window with lots of information, including more details, version numbers and dependencies (which it will generally handle for you automatically of tell you of any clashes. Here you can see I am installing the Povray ray tracing program which allows you to design and render 3D scenes.

!PackMan provides a home (and central repository) for many established RISC OS programs and, as a bonus, an easy way to update if new versions are released. !Nettle offers a terminal program for RISC OS, which is still (even in 2017) a very convenient way to access remote systems. You also have OpenSHH as an alternative option. You can also see a whole host of other applications available such as Rsync, FTPc and even other web browsers to try (I would recommend a really fast machine for those).

If you want to indulge in some nostalgia, there is a selection of emulators - upgrade your RISC OS machine to a Spectrum class machine today!

There are some good tools on other platforms which you may miss on RISC OS. My personal favourites of Bash and Grep are available as ports.

!PackMan is not just about software programs. You will find free fonts on to download including these excellent BitStream fonts.

That is a small selection of some of the gems you will find on !PackMan. In a future article, we will have a rummage around !Store. In the meantime, what are your favourite applications or recommendations on !PackMan?

Disaster recovery for Remote Desktop Services: New resources available

Terminal Services team blog - Thu, 06/22/2017 - 16:00

This post is authored byHaley Rowland, Program Manager, Remote Desktop Services.

We’ve published new documentation on how to protect the resources running in your RDS deployment and enable disaster recovery through a geo-redundant RDS deployment.

When you deploy Remote Desktop Services into your environment, it becomes a critical part of your infrastructure, particularly the apps and resources that you share with users. If the RDS deployment goes down due to anything from a network failure to a natural disaster, users can’t access those apps and resources, and your business is negatively impacted. To avoid this, you can configure a disaster recovery solution that allows you to failover your deployment – if your RDS deployment is unavailable, for whatever reason, there is a backup available to automatically take over.

To keep your RDS deployment running in the case of a single component or machine going down, we recommend configuring your RDS deployment for high availability. You can do this by setting up an RDSH farm and ensuring your Connection Brokers are clustered for high availability.

The disaster recovery solutions we recommend are to protect your deployment from catastrophic disaster, something that takes down your entire RDS deployment (including redundant roles configured for high availability). If such a disaster hits, having a disaster recovery solution built into your deployment will allow you to failover the entire deployment and quickly get apps and resources up and running for your users.

Use the following information to deploy disaster recovery solutions in RDS:

Leverage multiple Azure data centers to ensure users can access your RDS deployment, even if one Azure data center goes down (geo-redundancy)

Deploy Azure Site Recovery to provide failover for RDS components in site-to-site or site-to-Azure failovers
