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.

Reston, Virginia – So far in 2017, ServInt has announced the launch of three new hosting products, increased its software offerings, and added to its technical support options. And, effective today, the company is also offering a new line of Flex Dedicated Servers.

These reimagined Flex Dedicated Server solutions provide leading edge hardware that will enhance performance by allowing website pages to load faster. With on-board SSD hard drive options, it’ll give you even faster read and write times, Time To First Byte (TTFB), and higher data transfer rates. These increased speeds will allow people to browse websites quicker and easier, and likely stay on sites for longer periods of time.


ServInt’s new Flex Dedicated Server packages also come standard with ServInt’s SimpleScale™ technology, which allows customers to upgrade and downgrade their server’s RAM and storage seamlessly. Since there’s no need to reboot a server to perform an upgrade, users won’t even notice the change. Similarly, the company is able to quickly and easily upgrade or downgrade servers between different pieces of server hardware.

“Today we’re redefining the dedicated hosting experience; we’re providing more power, performance, and value than ever before – while using our technology to make managing dedicated servers a breeze for our clients,” said ServInt CEO Reed Caldwell.

These Flex Dedicated Servers are complete hosted solutions that provide substantially more resources and features than traditional bare metal solutions. Customers receive a secure and scalable server that comes with off-server backups, LAMP stack, cPanel/WHM, as well as the peace of mind knowing their server is being expertly cared for.

ServInt’s new Flex 4 Core package starts at $189 per month, and includes 16 GB of RAM and 750 GB of HDD Storage, or with 150 GB of SSD storage for just $199 monthly. For those who need even more speed and power – like those who host their website, company information, database and other items on a single server – the Flex 16 Core is the perfect solution. With 64 GB of RAM and 1.5 TB of hardware RAID 10 Storage, starting at just $449 on a monthly basis, this server can store a large amount of data while still giving you the speed, resources, and redundancy you need for quick and efficient operations.

Growing Internet of Things (IoT) spend is set to drive a wave of new IT infrastructure over the next 12 months, according to recent analysis by 451 Research.
According to the Voice of the Enterprise: IoT – Workloads and Key Projects, 65.6 percent of respondents plan to increase their spending on IoT projects in the next 12 months, with the average spend increase totaling 17.7 percent. Only 2.7 percent of respondents are planning to decrease spending.
Specifically, organizations that are deploying IoT projects over the next 12 months plan to increase storage capacity (32.4 percent), network edge equipment (30.2 percent), server infrastructure (29.4 percent) and off-premises cloud infrastructure (27.2 percent).

Storage infrastructure is the top area affected by IoT. Most respondents said they store IoT data in company-owned data centers (53.1 percent), and once the data is analyzed, two-thirds of respondents continue to store the data at those same data centers, while one-third move data to a public cloud. Cloud storage can offer organizations more flexibility and significant cost savings over the long term of storing IoT data, 451 Research said.
Just under half of respondents said they do IoT data processing at the edge, on the IoT device (22.2 percent) or in nearby IT infrastructure (23.3 percent).

Link BuildingLink building has been frowned upon, in some ways, when it comes to SEO. However, it’s still a very important strategy and works great, when done correctly. Since you cannot just build a website, add some content and expect people to find it, link building and other SEO strategies have to be employed.

If you already have quality content designed for good on-page SEO, you just need to start building good links. Here’s a look at why you should use link building and how to go about using it.

What is Link Building?

An SEO term used to describe the process of having another website or blog link to your website or blog from inside the content is known as link building. This helps to earn you a better ranking on Google and other search engines.

They value quality links over quantity, so buying a link building package isn’t always a good idea. However, when you acquire trustworthy links from large, authority website, it can make a huge difference. Getting these types of links regularly, will help turn your own website into an authority site.

Value of Top Quality Links

SEO LinksHigh quality links do a few things for your website. First, they give you a source of traffic. Second, they provide SEO benefits. Third, they help you create a new relationship. Google sees all of this as good and will give you more respect because of your links.

There was a time when the quantity of links trumped everything. Today, it’s all about quality and one high quality link can be far better than hundreds of low quality links. Getting high quality links has to be the goal instead of just getting any links.

A high quality link comes from a site relevant to what your site is about. For example, if you run a web hosting site, it would make sense for an internet security site to link to information found on your site. However, it makes less sense for a store selling cookware to link to your site.

The other part of high quality links is the authority aspect. It’s far better for someone with high traffic that is seen as an expert to link to your site than just some part-time blogger with very little traffic.

Link Building = Relationship Building

You don’t have to contact other websites to start building relationships with top notch sites. Instead, you can link to them and drive traffic their way. When this happens, the webmasters at the site you linked to will fine your site and will link to you, if you have good content.

It’s not hard to build these relationships, but it does take time and effort. You have to link to other websites and blogs regularly in order to get these relationships moving in the right direction.

Getting Started

The process of link building starts with finding influencers in your industry. Then, you want to start linking to those influencers when it makes sense. You can even use social media to help find these influencers.

Along with linking to influencers, you should start commenting on their blog posts and start the conversation. This helps to get you in front of them and the rest will happen naturally, over time.

High Quality Content Only

ContentLetting links build naturally by creating relationships is a great way to gain better SEO. However, this strategy won’t work if you don’t put up high quality content on your blog and website. Make sure the content is relevant, helpful and easy to read.

With these tips, you can start using link building to find more traffic gain SEO benefits and build lasting relationships.
