“4GH was created to help our customers succeed”

Under the shared hosting model, many customer websites are housed on a single server. If a Web server experiences issues, it affects everyoneon that server for example, if a hosting server goes down, all customers’ sites hosted on that server go down with it. If a website on that server has an unexpected traffic spike, in certain cases it would cause website slowness or loading issues for everyone else hosted on that server as well.

Kore Domains listened to customer feedback and created 4GH. Using a new architecture consisting of multiple Web hosting servers networked together, these issues are now a thing of the past. Under the 4GHWeb Hosting model, because websites are hosted in a cloud supported by several servers with load balancing, if a server goes down, another server quickly takes its place, without customers experiencing a disruption in service. If a website receives a bunch of traffic, resources are shifted and the other websites still operate normally.

Kore Domains was in the “cloud” before the term was coined, but 4GHWeb Hosting is the next level of cloud services. With 4GH Web Hosting, if more servers are needed, the cluster can quickly expand, providing plenty of power for all Web hosting customers. Customers using Kore Domains4GH Web Hosting with proprietary Dynamic Traffic Management, Dynamic Defense Management and Dynamic Server Management are receiving a near-enterprise level service for a small monthly fee.

4GH Web hosting is also backed by Kore Domains 24/7 Site Defenders team. A testament to its success in preventing cyber attacks and detecting website vulnerabilities.

Rackspace Hosting 1Q net income up on higher sales

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Cloud computing company Rackspace Hosting Inc. said its first-quarter profit rose from last year on higher sales, but the profits just met Wall Street expectations and costs were higher.

Shares fell 13 percent in after-hours trading.

Rackspace Hosting said its costs jumped 28 percent in the quarter to $264.3 million, compared to $206 million the year before. The higher spending was driven by marketing and administrative costs.

The company, which provides remote, or “cloud” based, computing services to clients, said that during the quarter ended March 31, it earned net income of $23.2 million, or 17 cents per share, compared to $13.8 million, or 10 cents per share, in the prior-year period.

That’s in line with the 17 cents per share analysts expected, according to FactSet.

Revenue rose to $301.4 million from $230 million in the prior year period. Analysts were expecting $300.2 million, according to FactSet.

The company said that its number of servers and customers rose from the end of last year. Its server count increased 3 percent from the fourth quarter of last year to 82,438. The number of customers rose 5 percent to 180,866 in that time.

But the company must still compete to keep customers in a rapidly changing industry, CEO Lanham Napier said in a statement.

“While we’ve made a lot of progress so far in 2012, we have much more to do,” Napier said.

Shares fell $7.44, or 13 percent, to $50.36 in after-hours trading. The stock had already dropped 60 cents to close at $57.80 in regular trading. The stock has traded between $30.34 and $60.55 over the last year.

StillSecure Introduces First Comprehensive Managed Security Services Suite Within Cloud Infrastructure

SUPERIOR, CO–(Marketwire -05/02/12)- StillSecure, a managed network security solutions and certified compliance company, today announced that its suite of comprehensive managed security services can now be embedded within a public cloud infrastructure. StillSecure’s network security appliance, Cloud Network Security Appliance (NSA), can protect customer cloud servers at most public cloud providers.

Until now, organizations leveraging the public cloud were forced to either build their own security infrastructure, use “outboard” security appliances, or had no security at all. Unfortunately, infrastructure as a service (IaaS) users were not able to easily outsource security for their applications and data hosted in the cloud. These cloud applications were either left unchecked or required significant resources to secure.

Now, with StillSecure Cloud NSA, organizations can quickly and easily spin up a managed security cloud server within their public cloud infrastructure. Built on top of CentOS, a free operating system distribution based upon the Linux kernel, Cloud NSA can serve as the security gateway device providing inline services such as managed firewall, IDPS, or WAF. Additionally, Cloud NSA can also provide out-of-band services such as IDS, log management, file integrity monitoring, or vulnerability scanning. Cloud NSA can also deliver StillSecure’s comprehensive PCI compliance service, PCI Complete.

“Security in a cloud environment can be both a black box and a minefield of risk at the same time. Most people aren’t prepared to cope with the kind of exposure and weaknesses that used to be hidden behind a firewall. Fear of the unknown and having to rely on the ‘just trust us’ model are a bad combination. That’s why security remains one of the key factors preventing cloud adoption,” said Carl Brooks, an infrastructure and cloud computing analyst at The 451 Group. “Providing a managed services approach so that users feel more in control when operating in a cloud environment is a viable way to improve security. It does not require a deep understanding of the security space, but it does let end users leverage additional services and expertise to achieve practical security results. StillSecure’s introduction of Cloud NSA does just that — it gives providers an important new managed service without forcing them to understand the security space like an expert, and yet still gives organizations a chance to leverage an outsourced service to handle security and compliance.”

“Establishing a tight security perimeter around your cloud instances is critical to reducing your attack surface and making security manageable,” said James Brown, CTO of StillSecure. “With the introduction of Cloud NSA, StillSecure is leading the effort to embed comprehensive managed security services into public cloud environments.”

About StillSecureFor IT executives facing escalating security threats and evolving compliance requirements, and data centers looking to cement long-term customer relationships, StillSecure designs and delivers managed network security and certified compliance solutions so you can focus on growing your core business.

StillSecure’s full suite of managed security services provides military-grade network security in dedicated, cloud and hybrid environments. Its flagship product, Safe Access, is a secure network access control (NAC) solution that ensures a company’s protection against compromised and dangerous endpoints.

As opposed to vendors with uncertified partial fixes, or worse, self-audited solutions, StillSecure unites its security experts with certified processes and innovative technologies to provide a holistic approach and solutions to eliminate the need for dedicated resources, as well as juggling multiple vendors, products and requirements.

ElasticHosts unveils simple cloud web hosting for SMEs

NEWS

London-based ElasticHosts has launched two hosted services to help less tech-savvy businesses get their websites running on the cloud, going up against Amazon and Rackspace.

Cloud Sites and Managed Cloud Servers, introduced on Thursday, are designed to make the process of mounting a website less complex by automating the process and by taking on the task of managing the servers. Cloud Sites functions like a platform-as-a-service for simple websites made up of PHP and HTML, while Managed Cloud Servers provides companies with rentable computers whose infrastructure is handled by ElasticHosts.

Cloud Sites “is a clustered and distributed runtime environment… for running MySQL databases and PHP scripts”, Richard Davies, chief executive of ElasticHosts, told ZDNet UK. “We allow them to upload their pages, their databases, their files into that. The Cloud Sites project is the next generation of conditional shared hosting.”

The service is designed for basic sites built around a standard LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP), potentially running simple e-commerce or blogging applications such as WordPress, he said.

As for Managed Cloud Servers service, this is based on “identical technology” to ElasticHosts’s existing servers, but comes with more support in the package, according to Davies. “What we found over time was that more and more of our customers were coming to us and saying, ‘We’d just like a bit of help to get us set up’,” he said.

ElasticHosts is targeting its products at small businesses that may not have the technical expertise or the time to get to grips with Amazon Web Services’s sprawling set of technologies.

“We’ve tried to build something which is much simpler and more easy to use, and starts from a user experience that shows flexibility,” Davies said.

AWS’s cloud consists of tens of separate services that must be chained together to run a cloud service some that can be intimidating for SMEs with little technical in-house knowledge. Furthermore, customers need to learn the ins and outs of Amazon’s proprietary platform to get the best use of it. However, Amazon has tried to improve the usability of its cloud over the past year, with the introduction of technologies like the Simple Workflow Service.

In addition, AWS does not offer personal support for its basic technologies, though companies can pay for premium support. Besides Amazon, ElasticHosts’s main competitor in the UK will be Rackspace, which aims to offer comprehensive support services to its customers.

Cloud services and search warrants: When are users notified?

Most cloud-service privacy policies address how they deal with your personal information and data about your usage, but less clear is whether they would tell you when and if law enforcement sought access to your files residing on their servers.

As the virtual reality online storage wars gear up, many consumers and privacy advocates have expressed concern about the policies that will be applied to the content that they would be moving into remote servers.

All of the services include a clause expressing that they will act in accordance with legal requests for data.

“Like all law-abiding companies, we comply with valid legal process,” replied a Google spokesman. “Whenever we receive a request we make sure it meets both the letter and spirit of the law before complying. If we believe a request is overly broad, we will seek to narrow it.”

Similarly, business-focused cloud service Box replied to our query saying, “Our policy is to have any subpoena or court order reviewed by our outside privacy experts.”

Of course, that’s to be expected of a business worth its salt. The more pressing issue for some time online is whether they are obligated in any way to tell the user that someone with a badge or authority wants to get a look at his content.

The only instance we could find of this being addressed was in Dropbox’s terms of service. Itreads: “To be clear, aside from the rare exceptions we identify in our Privacy Policy, no matter how the Services change, we won’t share your content with others, including law enforcement, for any purpose unless you direct us to.”

When we asked Dropbox for a bit more clarity, the company issued this response: Our policy is to provide notice to users about law-enforcement demands for data, except in the event where the law or highly compelling circumstances prohibit us from doing so.

Other cloud service providers also responded.

“In a situation where it is absolutely necessary to provide access, we would provide notice to the affected customer prior to disclosure (subject to our obligations under the subpoena or court order),” according to a Box spokesperson.

Privacy protections vary for your data in the cloud

With the advent of Google Drive, we talk about cloud computing as if the bits and bytes of our lives are stored somewhere up in the air, but, really, the “clouds” are very terrestrial. What’s more up in the air are the laws that govern who can access your stuff and how.

Originally a way for geeks to explain to the rest of us the notion of remote servers storing and serving up content, cloud computing can be defined several different ways, depending on whom you ask. In some ways, even email is a form of cloud computing. (It really lives on a server somewhere out there and is served up wherever we desire.)

“The problem that cloud computing has, more generally, is that [the real world] assumes that rights are based geographically,” Mark Radcliffe, senior partner at law firm DLA Piper, said in an interview with The Times. “That assumption is not realistic in the cloud.”

Why? Who knows where the servers really sit? They may be in the United States, governed by American laws. Or they may be across the pond in Europe, where there are rather stringent privacy rules. Regardless of where the company is based, the location of the servers determine in some large part who can legally gain access to the content on them and how.

“The U.S. is more like the Wild West,” Radcliffe said. “It’s very heterogeneous,” with laws at the federal, state and sometimes the municipal level.

One concern some have expressed online and out loud is how law enforcement could gain access to your digital life stored in a cloud.

With a computer in your home, you’d have to be served a warrant for legal access to your hard drive. But with remote storage, you may not know whether a subpoena or warrant has been served on the cloud service provider.

“Law enforcement can subpoena the service, but it depends on their contractual obligation,” Radcliffe said. In other words, what they spell out in their terms of service. Always remember, that’s a contract that you agree to by using the service.

Most terms of service include a clause stating the provider would give up your information if required by law, with no mention of whether it would inform you. Interestingly enough, Dropbox’s TOS says something a little different.

It reads: “To be clear, aside from the rare exceptions we identify in our Privacy Policy, no matter how the Services change, we won’t share your content with others, including law enforcement, for any purpose unless you direct us to.”
