ITatOnce Offers Insight into Recent Cloud Computer Surveys


(PRWEB) August 29, 2013

According to the 2013 QuinStreet Enterprise survey, private cloud deployment may outpace public cloud use by two times within the 12 next months; while a 2013 IDG Enterprise Cloud Computing research report finds that the private cloud is the preferred model.

The results of North Bridge Venture Partners third annual Future of Cloud Computing Survey further indicated that although Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) is expected to grow, it will give way in five years to Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). This move away from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) was corroborated by the 2013 InformationWeek State of Cloud Computing Survey, which showed that SaaS dropped eight points since its 2012 State of the Cloud poll.

What do these results mean?

According to Yury Borukh, CEO of ITatOnce, the trend towards private cloud computing can be attributed primarily to the need for additional security and privacy that go beyond what public cloud platforms provided by companies such as Microsoft, Salesforce.com and Amazon can provide.

Data and applications stored on a private cloud are unlikely to be intercepted by those outside of the organization, explained Borukh. Furthermore, when their networks are private, organizations have greater control. That means more customization and greater ease of use.

What do all the initials mean?

Yury Borukh provided a brief overview of the current three service categories for cloud based platforms:

eUKhost Offers Premium GlobalSign SSL Certificates at Discounted Prices as a Limited Period Promotion


Leeds, West Yorkshire (PRWEB) August 21, 2013

eUKhost Ltd- eUKhost Ltd. today announced promotional discounts on its range of SSL certificates with great savings. For a limited time, new and existing customers can take advantage of promotional discounts on the company’s most popular SSL certificates including AlphaSSL, Extended SSL, AlphaSSL Wildcard and Organization SSL Wildcard.

In order to be able to safely and securely accept and send sensitive information through a website, it is extremely important that information is encrypted when it is being sent back and forth from your site visitor and your website. The reason why this is so important is because it is extremely easy for anyone to eavesdrop and steal sensitive data while the data is being transmitted back and forth.

An SSL certificate is installed on a website, and each time a visitor browses a section of your website encrypted over SSL, a public key is sent by the server to your visitors Web browser. This public key is used to encrypt data before it is sent to the website your client is browsing, and vice versa. Once an encrypted connection is established and verified, all data transmitted both ways are encrypted.

Robert King, Managing Director, eUKhost Ltd. said, SSL certificates are a very important part of business online because they provide the necessary layer of security and trust to ensure sensitive data is transmitted and received securely and safely from client to server, and vice versa. These savings will be very much welcomed and appreciated by our business customers who may be needing to either purchase a new, or renew an existing, SSL certificate with us.

SSL certificates are one means to protect users from fraudsters trying to con them into handing over valuable usernames and passwords or other identifying information. SSL certificates verify sites and provide consumers with confidence that the site they visit is the site they think it is, and not, for example, a spoof site set up for the express purpose of harvesting their credit card information.

As part of the company’s limited-time promotions, AlphaSSL certificates will be available for

NovoPath Offers Innovative Cloud Hosting Support: Labs Enjoy a Customized Solution with Reduced Capital Investment and Maintenance


Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) July 22, 2013

NovoPath, Inc., a leader in best-of-breed anatomic pathology (AP) software solutions, announces a remote hosting software option for its flagship NovoPath product, providing customers with all the benefits of a cloud environment while maintaining full HIPAA compliance and enabling full ownership and control of their patient data and the NovoPath application. This new offering allows users to purchase NovoPath AP laboratory information system (LIS) software and select the HIPAA-compliant remote hosting provider of their choice. NovoPath will work with the provider to install its software to support VPN or Internet access locally at the users lab, depending on the specific needs.

By hosting a NovoPath system with a cloud-based provider, labs enjoy a full range of benefits, says Wally Soufi, CEO of NovoPath. He explains that this includes the elimination of capital investment in system hardware and management of hardware and software, as well as data backup and recovery services that the hosting vendor can provide. Additionally, cloud-based solutions are scalable, eliminating the need to plan for long-term data storage needs. Users also benefit from the providers economy of scale in hardware purchase and maintenance, making the service a typically affordable alternative to onsite hosting.

According to Soufi, the new software option also enables customers to lease and control their own dedicated offsite server as well as to take advantage of a NovoPath solution customized to their own particular needs. This contrasts with a vendor-hosted solution, which is often a standard application running on a server shared by multiple labs.

Customers enjoy secure, reliable, cost-effective access to NovoPath. This is a terrific offering for smaller labs and users with minimal IT support, as well as almost any lab that expects significant growth but is unable to predict future needs given todays rapidly evolving medical environment, he comments. Its a unique way to implement a customized solution with turnkey implementation and maintenance.

Recognized for its broad-based functionality and customizable features, NovoPaths advanced solutions support AP reporting, image acquisition, electronic sign off, voice dictation, billing, referring physician communications and more. Unlike most competing solutions, the platform offers advanced business intelligence and analytic tools to help labs manage their performance in todays competitive and ever-changing business environment. NovoPaths Lean Process Improvement Module, for example, is a fully integrated module that implements sophisticated business processes into day-to-day operations.

ViUX Systems Offers High-Availability Managed Cloud Hosting & Cloud Storage on Dell PowerEdge C6220 Servers Running Parallels Cloud Server 6.0


Raleigh, North Carolina (PRWEB) May 15, 2013

Parallels Gold Partner, ViUX Systems announces deployment of Parallels Cloud Server (PCS) 6.0 for High-Availability Managed Cloud Hosting and Cloud Storage on new Dell PowerEdge C6220 Servers.

Parallels Cloud Server is now the foundation upon which all ViUX services will be provisioned going forward and marks a critical step in the evolution of the ViUX Cloud, as it now includes revolutionary Parallels Cloud Storage technology, which significantly improve the availability and performance of ViUX Cloud Servers as provisioned upon new state-of-the-Internet Dell PowerEdge C-Series Servers.

Parallels Cloud Server allows ViUX to provision both VPS Containers and Hypervisors on the same physical servers. This flexibility lets ViUX take advantage of the scalability and streamlined management of Operating System Virtualization (Containers); while also making use of Hardware Virtualization (Hypervisors) to create Virtual Machines (VMs) – all deployed on top of Parallels Cloud Storage.

Parallels Cloud Storage combines and pools the disk space on ViUX servers into a single large storage cluster to deliver Cloud Storage at a fraction of the cost of competing solutions. When used to deploy Virtual Servers, Parallels Cloud Storage eliminates the physical server as a potential single point of failure, for high-availability Cloud Hosting.

ViUX Systems was one of the first Hosting Providers to announce deployment of Parallels Cloud Server back in February as a beta offering just prior to the Parallels Summit 2013 in Las Vegas. At that time the ViUX beta deployment of PCS made use of Dell PE C6105 Servers with AMD Processors; 96GB of Memory; & SATA Drives.

The live production deployment of PCS by ViUX uses new Dell PE C6220 Servers with: Intel E5-2630 Processors; 128GB of Memory; 5x900GB 10K SAS Drives; & 1x100GB SSD – per each of 12 nodes within the initial deployment. The complete configuration and deployment details are published in the ViUX Blog at: ViUX Deploys 54TB Cloud Storage Cluster Using Parallels Cloud Server 6.0 on Dell PowerEdge Cloud (6220) Servers.

Parallels Cloud Server includes: Parallels Containers, the highest density, highest performance Cloud Server Virtualization solution (formerly Parallels Virtuozzo Containers) – enabling near instant provisioning with no operating system updates required by the customer; and Parallels Hypervisor (formerly Parallels Server Bare Metal) – giving ViUX the flexibility to create Virtual Machines for customers who prefer to manage and maintain their own operating systems; all controlled by Parallels Business Automation, which is the hosting automation and billing system from Parallels that ViUX has used since 2006.

Using Parallels Cloud Server and other software systems from Parallels, ViUX has deployed a super-efficient and highly automated Cloud Hosting Infrastructure from which a wide range of Web Hosting and Managed Cloud Services are offered, such as: Shared Cloud Hosting; Private Cloud Servers; Dynamic Dedicated Servers, etc. that appeal to the broadest possible customer base.
