Microsoft is adding support for OpenSSH client and server to its Windows Server 2019 and Windows 10 version 1809. The tech giant had announced the preview of Windows Server 2019 in March this year, which became generally available in October. It is the latest version of Windows Server that addresses four important customer challenge areas: hybrid workloads, security, application platform, and hyper-converged infrastructure. OpenSSH is the open source version of Secure Scripting Host (SSH) tools used to administer Linux and other non-Windows operating systems for cross-platform management of remote systems. The OpenSSH comes with a set of client and server solutions used to enable secure remote login, remote file transfer, and public or private key pair management. Originated as a part of the OpenBSD project, the OpenSSH is now powering several ecosystems including BSD, Linux, macOS, and Unix. Microsoft is adding OpenSSH to Windows Server 2019 to enable enterprises to use a consistent…

Siauliai, Lithuania – Ever since we opened our first data center in 2005, our ambition has been to become a key global player in the Virtual Private Server (VPS) market. With thousands of satisfied customers in over 70 countries, we’ve been able to realize our ambition and establish ourselves as a go-to provider of reliable web hosting services in Lithuania and beyond.

Now, we’re bringing two of our most popular services to the United States: Linux KVM NVMe and Windows KVM NVMe VPS hosting.


VPS hosting has been growing in popularity because it gives customers complete control over their environment, allowing them to tweak it precisely for their needs. As our customers would happily attest, VPS hosting provides increased stability and reliability over shared hosting, and it brings significant cost savings when compared with in-house hosting.

Customers that choose VPS hosting can pay only for what they really need and instantly scale their resources based on current demand. Adding more memory or purchasing additional processing power is a matter of a simple click, making VPS hosting ideal for agile startups that can go from a thousand users to millions in a matter of months or even weeks.

Our VPS hosting services are backed by high-performance NVMe (Non-Volatile Memory Express) storage, which delivers up to 6 times better performance compared with classic SSD disks, transmitting data at up to 30 Gbps. NVMe was designed for both enterprise and client applications needing acceleration in critical data, and it eliminates bottlenecks and provides capabilities to meet the very demanding and time-sensitive requirements of cloud computing.

Because we use KVM (Kernel-based Virtual Machine) as our virtualization infrastructure of choice, our customers can simultaneously manage several virtual machines and their configurations while enjoying superior security provided by the Linux kernel, an open-source monolithic Unix-like computer operating system kernel that powers nearly 70 percent of the top 10 million Alexa domains.

Apart from the use of cutting-edge technologies, our US customers can benefit from our strategically chosen location: Chicago. Widely known as the premier carrier hub for the Midwest, Chicago is arguably the best location in the United States for providers of hosting services, which is why it’s also home to Motorola Solutions, NetSuite, Snapsheet, Glassdoor, Sprout Social, Flexera, and many other internet-centric companies.

Of course, we’re bringing with us our core principles, which govern everything we do, and which have helped us thrive for well over 10 years. We consider our customers to be the important part of our business and provide reliable 24×7 support with guaranteed response times to help our customers solve any problems they may have in a timely manner.

We are firmly committed to providing our services at competitive prices without sacrificing reliability. Our customers benefit from a 99.97 percent network uptime guarantee, which has earned us Great Uptime Award from HostAdvice, a leading web hosting information center.

Last but not least, we at Bacloud continue to invest in new technology and improve our services in every way we can to make them more attractive to existing and new customers alike. We back everything we do with a 30-day money back guarantee because we’re confident in our services, and we encourage you to try them yourself to see what makes us stand out from the crowd.

SAN FRANCISCO – Docker announced the Windows Server Application Migration Program, the best and only way to containerize and secure legacy Windows Server applications in advance of the end-of-support deadline for Microsoft Windows Server 2008. With industry-leading Docker Enterprise 2.1 and best-in-class tools and services specifically designed for Windows Server application migration, customers can quickly and easily migrate and modernize legacy Windows applications while driving continuous innovation across any application, anywhere.

With a large percentage of Windows Server applications still running on Windows Server 2003 or 2008, companies that postpone migrating legacy applications and systems are vulnerable to security risks and a higher cost of maintenance. Traditional methods such as upgrading the underlying operating system or migrating applications on to new systems or the cloud, require significant resources and only serves to add to the existing technical debt. Docker’s new program helps organizations seamlessly migrate legacy applications with the only container platform capable of containerizing Windows Server applications. Additionally, enterprise customers can take advantage of services and tools that leverage Docker’s experience in application migrations to quickly discover, containerize and migrate Windows Server applications with immediate cost savings.


“The majority of our legacy product portfolio at Mitchell runs on Windows Server. We sought a solution that would allow us to containerize all of our applications so we could reap the benefits of DevOps, increase portability and align operational modalities across the board,” said Marius Domean, Director R&D, Mitchell International. “Only Docker Enterprise was able to provide us with a robust, enterprise-grade solution that enables us to transform our legacy application stacks while reducing operational costs, minimizing our footprint of thousands of virtual machines and allowing us to adopt a hybrid cloud hosting architecture.”

Docker Enterprise 2.1: The Only Platform for Containerizing Windows Server Applications

Docker Enterprise is the leading enterprise-ready container platform that provides companies the choice, agility and security needed to efficiently build and manage their entire application portfolio, while reducing overall costs by more than 50 percent. The latest release, Docker Enterprise 2.1, enables organizations to easily migrate and modernize legacy Windows Server applications while driving continuous innovation across any application, anywhere. New features of Docker Enterprise 2.1 include:

Improved performance and compatibility for Windows Server Applications: updated support for Windows Server 2016, 1709, 1803 and 20191 in addition to smaller image sizes, improved compatibility and expanded networking options.
Greater insights and availability with out-of-the-box dashboards: new dashboards and management console including health status visibility and deeper service and platform benefits.
Enhanced security and compliance: support for industry standard security and authentication including SAML 2.0 authentication and the cryptographic modules in Docker Engine – Enterprise have been validated against FIPS 140-2 standards for both Windows and Linux.

“Because we have been working with customers on Windows Server containers from the beginning, Docker has a proven model for migrating and modernizing legacy Windows Server applications quickly and cost-effectively to any infrastructure, on-premises or in the cloud,” said Scott Johnston, Chief Product Officer for Docker. “Windows Server customers come to us for help designing a container strategy for their legacy applications that will help mitigate end of support issues. Through this program many customers experience a 50 percent reduction in the total cost of ownership (TCO) of applications using Docker Enterprise, freeing up budget for strategic IT initiatives such as cloud migration or edge computing.”

Industry-proven Services and Purpose-built Tooling Automates and Accelerates Application Conversion

The Docker program includes a new service offering based on the experience of proven methodologies from Docker’s Modernize Traditional Application (MTA) program and from working with enterprises like Mitchell International on migrating applications using Docker Enterprise. As part of the services engagement, customers will be able to accelerate discovery and conversion using Docker Application Converter, a tool that automatically scans systems for target applications and speeds up the conversion process by automatically creating Docker artifacts.

Additionally, customers will have access to Docker Certified Infrastructure which automates implementation and configuration best practices for integrating containers into enterprise IT infrastructure like VMware vSphere, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services. When combined with Docker’s expertise, organizations will have a “blueprint” for future migration projects and new application development.

Foundation for Continuous Innovation
Once implemented, the Docker Enterprise container platform and methodologies enable organizations to both modernize existing applications and adopt new technologies based on business requirements and customer needs. With Docker Enterprise, companies can standardize the software platform and adopt new technology stacks and architectures without changing how the organization operates – whether applications are cloud native applications, AI or edge computing workloads. Traditional application migration techniques lock companies into a specific infrastructure or operating system. With Docker Enterprise, organizations have a secure repeatable model that doesn’t lock into a specific infrastructure or cloud, enabling companies to modernize applications and adopt new technologies as business requirements evolve.

About Docker
Docker, the leader in the container platform market, enables developers and IT operations to build, secure and manage applications without technology or infrastructure lock in. By bringing together traditional applications and microservices built on Windows, Linux and mainframe under one operating model, Docker’s container platform enables the world’s largest companies to accelerate key digital initiatives including cloud migration, application modernization and edge computing.

BALTIMORE – Speedify.tech recently announced that it developed new software ‘FreeSSL.tech Auto’ to help web designers, businesses and laymen add the “Secure” status of an SSL certificate to their website. Using a simple download, businesses can comply with Chrome 70 SSL certificate requirements without having to outsource the costly help of additional technical experts.

Removing the glaring “Not Secure” status message from websites’ address bars has become an urgent priority for many businesses and online retailers. The recent shift in Chrome opened an entire market of predatory “experts” who charge exorbitant fees to offer a relatively easy fix. In response, the web designers and developers of Speedify.tech created a free and simple way for businesses to comply with Google Chrome’s certificate requirements.


FreeSSL.tech offers ‘A Let’s Encrypt client/app’ that is written in PHP. “The app completes the automation of a free SSL certificate in shared hosting, renewing and installing that certificate quickly and without need of additional tech help. All that is required is a web browser, the software download and a few minutes.” said Anindya Sundar Mandal, Lead Developer of FreeSSL.tech.

This SSL Certificate app:

  • Works with shared hosting.
  • Requires no root access.
  • Requires no command line expertise.
  • Works with a friendly administrator’s dashboard.
  • Is installed and configured using a browser.
  • Is mobile responsive. Users can efficiently manage its functions using a mobile phone.
  • Is completely free of cost, with no obligations.

There are some minimum system requirements necessary to use the software, including:

  • Linux hosting: cPanel or any other control panel (this client is NOT compatible with Windows hosting).
  • PHP 5.4 and up.
  • MySQL 5 or MariaDB 10.
  • OpenSSL extension.
  • Curl extension.
  • MySQLi extension.
  • PHP directive allow_url_fopen = On
  • An SSL installation feature enabled for cPanel accounts (for automatic installation of a free SSL Certificate).

Speedify.tech also maintains a free video tutorial HERE (https://freessl.tech/video) for those who would like a simplified walk-through.

Secure status has always been an important feature for websites that take credit card information, but that is no longer the sole reason for businesses to add a certificate to their sites. Google Chrome rates sites “Not secure” if they ask for any type of user content: passwords, emails, etc. And after the recent July 2018 update, Chrome now marks any site “Not secure” that does not have a certificate.

Finally, starting October 16, 2018, Chrome begins marking uncompliant HTTP websites as “Not secure” with a bright red warning color whenever users start to type in information, immediately alerting users to that site’s status. Businesses that do not add a “Secure” status soon may find themselves losing customers.
