launches

AUSTIN, TX – OnRamp Access, LLC, a leading high security and compliant hosting provider, is proud to announce the launch of its purpose-built, HITRUST-certified virtual private cloud (VPC) built on OpenStack® open-source software. OnRamp’s on-demand HITRUST Virtual Private Cloud helps organizations control costs, remain agile, and improve their compliance posture. It offers the ease of use of a public cloud—including capabilities like utility billing and self-service provisioning—with the security of a private cloud.

“OnRamp’s Virtual Private Cloud allows IT teams and DevOps to quickly meet market demands by deploying highly elastic environments that are secured to HITRUST standards. We built unique features into the product that solve common cloud challenges,” said OnRamp VP of Product Toby Owen.


For instance, users can control costs using capped resource usage, eliminate vendor lock-in through open-source APIs, and deploy even the most sensitive workloads with secure volume encryption. The virtual private cloud delivers a logically isolated environment that lets you retain control of your private networks, virtual machines, and storage, without the need for you to manage the infrastructure. And you can apply and maintain security settings for your entire environment with a dynamic policy engine.

“In a landscape of growing threats and increasing fines for non-compliance, it’s exciting to see OnRamp extend OpenStack’s use to meet healthcare security and compliance needs,” says Mark Collier, COO of the OpenStack Foundation. “One of our themes at the 2017 OpenStack Summit in Boston was the triad of cost, compliance, and capability. OnRamp’s VPC is a great example of how the community is moving OpenStack software into use cases that highlight those three Cs.”

“Launching our HITRUST-certified Virtual Private Cloud is just one of the ways OnRamp demonstrates our commitment to our customers’ needs for security, compliance and flexibility. We implement regimented processes and secure our facilities to meet stringent standards, and in turn, are able to share those benefits with our customers. OnRamp customers gain peace of mind knowing that all their systems, from their development environment to their mission critical apps, are supported by OnRamp’s systematic administrative, technical, logical and physical safeguards,” says OnRamp CEO Lucas Braun.

Concurrent to the product launch, the company achieved its Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) Common Security Framework (CSF) Certification. HITRUST CSF is the most widely recognized security accreditation in the healthcare industry, employing controls from several major security and standards bodies —HIPAA, PCI, ISO, NIST and others—to protect confidential data and critical assets.

With the HITRUST certification, OnRamp now delivers a suite of HITRUST-certified services, with secure-by-default configurations that save customers time and resources.

HITRUST—in collaboration with public and private healthcare technology, privacy and information security leaders—has championed programs instrumental in safeguarding health information and managing information risk while ensuring consumer confidence in the organizations that create, store or exchange their information.

(NASDAQ: SMCI), a global leader in enterprise computing, storage, and networking solutions and green computing technology, today announced the availability of a new all-flash NVMe™ (Non-Volatile Memory Express) 1U JBOF (Just a Bunch Of Flash) and 1U SuperServer with support for 32 hot-swap NVMe SSDs.

With a total of 32 hot-swap NVMe drives in a 1U system, Supermicro’s new NVMe solution will provide all-NVMe capacity at petabyte scale in 1U of rack space as the company will support 32TB NVMe drives in the near future. NVMe technology was developed to unleash the best possible latency and provide faster CPU to data storage performance for advanced computing.


The new 1U all-NVMe Storage Servers and JBOF disaggregate storage into shared pools that are rapidly becoming the preferred hardware infrastructure for demanding Big Data analytics applications such as autonomous driving and real-time financial fraud detection. Up to 12 hosts can be directly connected to the 1U pooled NVMe storage. Alternatively, for customers who want to deploy an NVMe over Fabric (NVMeoF) solution, hundreds of hosts can be connected to the pooled high-performance NVMe storage over Ethernet, Infiniband or Omnipath (OPA). Supermicro 1U all-NVMe Storage Servers and JBOF solutions help maximize high-performance storage resource utilization and reduce the datacenter footprint resulting in lower TCO.

“With Supermicro 3.0, our enterprise customers benefit from the industry’s broadest selection of first-to-market server and storage systems with global reach, premium quality, RAS security, rack scale management and global services, and our new all-flash 32 hot-swap drives in a high-density 1U system design is the latest example of how Supermicro continues to lead the way for NVMe technology,” said Charles Liang, President and CEO of Supermicro. “With more than triple the all-flash storage density of previous 1U solutions, this Supermicro system will take us to Petabyte scale in a single 1U system in the near future. This new JBOF supports flexible configurations with up to twelve hosts or head nodes and extremely high data transfer throughput up to 64GB per second.”

Supermicro’s new all-flash 32 drive NVMe 1U system supports not only standard U.2 SSDs, but also Intel “ruler” form factor SSDs to offer customers greater storage flexibility. This 1U system will support a half petabyte of NVMe storage capacity this year and a full petabyte early next year. The system comes standard with redundant hot-swap cooling fans and power supplies along with tool-less drive trays for increased serviceability and redundancy. For accessibility, the solution supports remote system on/off and system management as well as remote power cycling for each individual drive. For more information on this new JBOF, please go to:

(Bloomberg) — U.S. prosecutors prevailed in their request to seek information about subscribers to an anti-Trump website allegedly linked to rioting during the presidential inauguration in Washington, D.C.
A judge in District of Columbia Superior Court on Thursday ordered DreamHost LLC, the host of the website disruptj20.org, to comply with a government warrant seeking information about the site's subscribers. The government says the site was used to recruit and organize hundreds of people who rioted in the city on Jan. 20, the day President Donald Trump was sworn in, causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage over nearly two dozen city blocks.
DreamHost Launches Crowdfunding Campaign to Cover Legal Costs in DOJ Fight
Chief Judge Robert Morin ruled that DreamHost was obligated to turn over subscriber data, but that prosecutors would have to tell the judge which data it intended to seize. The judge said he would oversee the use of the data to make sure the government's seizure was limited to individuals linked to the riots and not people who merely posted messages or communicated with others through the site.
"I'm trying to balance the First Amendment protections and the government's need for this information," Morin said. "My view here is that this best protects both legitimate interests."
Morin denied DreamHost's request to put his ruling on hold until they could appeal his decision.
Host's Refusal
The ruling on Thursday came after

Gloucester, UK – Fasthosts Internet Ltd, a leading web and cloud hosting provider, has announced the addition of Managed Stacks and Applications to its virtualised technology portfolio.

Following last year’s successful launch of CloudNX servers, leading web hosting provider Fasthosts has built on this next-generation cloud platform to introduce an all-new range of virtualised services. Customers now have even more options when it comes to enterprise-level cloud computing, with servers, stacks and apps that can be dynamically deployed, flexed and scaled.


CloudNX services now include Root Servers, Managed Stacks, and Applications

So what are Root Servers, Managed Stacks and Applications? Root Servers are powerful and highly scalable virtual machines with full root access, representing infrastructure as a service on the CloudNX platform. Fully configurable and customisable, Root Servers give users complete control to build and maintain their own unique cloud hosting environment.

Managed Stacks are custom software bundles that include everything a web project needs to run on the CloudNX platform. To start coding, the user simply selects their preferred database, web server and scripting language, while Fasthosts takes care of the operating system, software updates and security.

When it comes to Applications, CloudNX provides content management systems including WordPress, Drupal and Joomla, pre-installed and ready to use. Fasthosts handles the infrastructure, leaving the user with more time to focus on their content, with the full functionality of their chosen CMS combined with the performance of dedicated resources.

The power behind these new virtualised services is container technology. Managed Stacks and Applications are built on software containers that automatically spin up to spread the load across a cluster of cloud servers, with no single point of failure. This means higher availability and rapid failover if anything needs to be patched or rebuilt.

For users looking to upgrade from shared hosting, platform as a service on CloudNX offers a range of advantages. CPUs, RAM and SSD storage resources are scalable and 100% dedicated, with absolutely no contention from other users. This is especially beneficial for demanding, high-traffic applications like ecommerce, and design agencies running several client websites. Multiple projects can be easily deployed via a single control panel, with processing power and memory dynamically allocated to ensure high performance – all without the headaches of server admin and patching. So, with time to market, redundancy and convenience taken care of, and with the benefit of dedicated resource and no ‘noisy neighbours’, users can simply focus on growing their own business.

Gavin Etheridge, Fasthosts Product Owner, understands the huge benefits offered by Root Servers, Managed Stacks and Applications to customers looking for a bespoke cloud hosting solution:

“With the addition of Managed Stacks and Applications to our CloudNX product line, we can now provide customers with a very broad set of solutions for managing their web projects, without the need to sign up to any lengthy contracts,” he confirms.

“The incredibly lightweight setup process means you can spin up a new environment for your preferred CMS in as little as 55 seconds. If our customers anticipate more traffic for promotional offers, testing or events, they can designate resources to individual projects as needed. When you need to adjust the level of resources, just make the changes within the Cloud Panel, and they’ll be executed in less than one minute.”

“Customers using Managed Stacks and Applications can focus 100% on their core business, while Fasthosts takes care of the first layer of infrastructure to ensure they’re up to date and, vitally, secure. And, as this is fully supported in the UK by our team, we’re on hand to help, speeding up the process and giving our customers more time to create the content they want. All our customers need to do is bring the code.”

The next phase of Fasthosts’ move towards containerisation will see the introduction of containers as a service running on Docker-based container technology. Docker is renowned for granting the ability to configure purpose-built software stacks to match highly individual requirements, providing the customer with a resilient, agile platform that increases the availability of their online services helping them to be even more successful on the internet.
