Web Hosting News – Boca Raton, Florida – “Responding to our clients’ needs has always been something we are very focused on. Having depleted our existing DR space at our Boca Raton campus, we realized we needed to expand in order to meet both existing and new demand for business continuity/disaster recovery office space in the marketplace,” stated Jeffrey Davis, Host.net Co-Founder and CEO. The new expansion includes 5,000 SF of new custom suites designed to meet our clients’ specific needs. Host.net also plans an additional 5,000 SF to be ready in Q1, 2014. “As successful and effective as our cloud and backup solutions are, we must also respond to the need for physical space for organizations to quickly and cost effectively be up and running should the need present itself. The biggest cost of business continuity is the lack of preparation,” further stated Mr. Davis.
With multiple Host.net data centers connected through an extensive fiber optic backbone and Metro Ethernet network covering most major metropolitan markets, the company can ensure 5 nines (99.999%) uptime guarantee which is an integral aspect of Host.net’s Smart Cloud Architecture™ framework. This infrastructure is a major benefit for Host.net’s South Florida clients as they can store mission critical data at an off-site data center that is virtually (and physically) nearby, back up their data to a remote location and know that in case of a disaster they can be up and running with little to no downtime. Host.net cloud solutions offer a “World-Class”, enterprise-level, safe and secure data center environment with redundant and robust network connections for companies to place mission-critical infrastructure. Host.net has multiple data centers available to protect data and applications as well as a hybrid solution of colocation and cloud services leveraging its proprietary 4cNxGn Smart Cloud Architecture™.

Web Hosting News – Reston, VA – DNS Made Easy (dnsmadeeasy.com), the leading provider of Enterprise IP Anycast managed DNS services, has released Time-Based Passwords as another form of authentication for control panel access to the DNS Made Easy control panel. Two-Factor authentication (sometimes called Two-Step verification) is an optional but highly recommended security feature that adds an extra layer of protection to DNS Made Easy accounts. This extra level of security is another feature developed by DNS Made Easy in response to requests from their user base to increase security.
DNS Made Easy Corporate Members previously had access to turn on and configure the ACL based authentication (Access Control List) for their accounts. Using ACLs meant clients would specify certain IP ranges (that is, a trusted IP subnet) that their accounts could login from. This feature is still available and provides all Corporate Members with an additional Third-Factor authentication when combined with the new Time-Based Passwords authentication.

Web Hosting News – Cloud computing drives efficiencies in a number of ways. One of those is what Proxios likes to call the “one to many” feature.
Proxios sees this scenario often: In traditional client/server computing, software is designed with a portion that resides on the client device (desktop or laptop) and the remainder on the server. One of the biggest challenges for all IT departments is maintaining and deploying software to all client devices. Anytime a change is needed, IT must deliver this update or addition to each client on an individual basis. Not only is this time consuming, but in many cases the IT staff has to deal with employees whose computers are inaccessible. It could be because they are traveling, or the computer is in use and the change is not something that can be accomplished as a background task.
Yet for a company operating from the cloud, all computing is server-based and all of the client computers are essentially remote terminals. When a software upgrade or patch is required, the change is made once at the server and immediately all of the users have access to the new version. The same is true for new software. Once it is installed on the cloud platform, clients gain access to the new software by simply granting security rights. In other words, the “one” is the server and the “many” are the multiple client PCs/laptops. Read the rest of this entry »
