Bulgarian Rax.bg certified as Cloud computing Service Provider on the VMware vCloud Air Network Program

SOFIA, Bulgaria, 28-Jun-2016 — /EPR INTERNET NEWS/ — RAX.bg, a provider of Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud computing, today announced its entry into the VMware vCloud® Air™ Network, with RAX vCloud Private, Public and Hybrid Cloud Servers, a VMware IaaS Powered service. This designation illustrates to customers that the company’s public cloud service is validated using and compatible for use with VMware vSphere®, the leading virtualization platform for building cloud infrastructures.

Voonami and Tegile Systems Partner on Remote Replication Service for Affordable, High Performance Data Protection

Voonami, a provider of a broad portfolio of offerings for outsourced data centers services (www.voonami.com), and Tegile Systems (www.tegile.com), a leading provider of hybrid storage arrays for virtualized server and desktop environments, today announced a partnership on a new managed replication service that provides Tegile customers with an unmatched value proposition to securely protect their data at Voonami’s world-class data centers with onsite-level application performance of replicated data.

The Voonami managed replication service leverages the remote replication functionality built into every TegileZebi hybrid array. Tegile users do not need to purchase any replication or backup software, but simply order the service from Voonami and immediately gain the benefits of distributed data protection to a  secure Voonami data center without any additional hardware or software expenditure.

“The combination of Tegile’s disruptive technology and the world class data center resources of Voonami now make it possible to eliminate the cost and complexity barriers to outsourcing data protection projects to the cloud,” said Rob Commins, vice president of marketing, Tegile Systems. “Everything is built in so our customers simply replicate their data over the cloud to a shared resource at Voonami. We’re excited to add another extremely compelling resource to the Zebi package.”

Voonami president Ben Bush said that the out-of-the-box replication functionality highlights the unsurpassed customer value of Zebi arrays, enabling out of the box replication for a variety of use cases.  “Our distributed replication service can be a pure offsite backup play or a disaster recovery play.  People now have the ability to spin up virtual machines on replicated storage with the same performance as their primary storage.”

The new remote replication service expands the relationship between Voonami and Tegile. Voonami previously installed Zebi 2100 arrays in its two data centers to accelerate the performance of its cloud computing and Storage as a Service product offerings.

The Voonami-Tegile replication service is the first of its kind for a hybrid SSD array vendor with a Managed Service Provider and signals the strength that Tegile has established with service provider customers, who are adopting Tegile’sZebi hybrid arrays for the transformational economics that make SSD performance affordable for outsourcing services.

Zebi hybrid arrays are 5-12 times less expensive than all-flash arrays on a cost-per-gigabyte basis, but the breakthrough architecture delivers SSD-level performance for every application even if the data resides on hard diskstorage. Additionally, with integrated in-line data deduplication and compression, Tegile arrays cost about $1 per gigabyte, competitive with traditional enterprise disk arrays but with vastly lower operational costs for power and cooling.  Tegile’s package of high IOPS performance and aggressive cost control is unmatched by pure SSD or conventional hard disk arrays.

Nothing’s Safe In Cyberspace Says Leo Impact Security

What do the NSA, the Army and Sony Corporation have in common with US embassies around the world? All of them, along with over 2,500 other entities, have been compromised by hackers like Wikileaks and Antisec. The cost of these cyber-crimes has mounted to over $3 billion a year. And “the little guy” isn’t safe, either. Everyone who uses the internet is at risk, despite the increasing use of antivirus software, IDS/IDP and firewalls in the current security models.

Today Leo Impact Security is exposing top secret methods used by cyber criminal’s also defending preventive methods because today all corporate, personal, and government computers are vulnerable to remote cyber attacks.

How do cyber criminals bypass current security model?

1. Antivirus bypass using crypters and protectors with random encryption methods
(ex: cypherx, Themida).
2. Firewall bypass using known ports in malware like port 80 and 8080.
3. IDS/IPS avoid using SSL encryption+ DNS tunneling-based malware (BOTS, RAT).
4. Remote access to any computer using Zero day exploits (.doc, .PPT, and .PDF individual files), Java silent driveway, browser packs, Router DNS MITM, and pen testing tools – Core impact, immunity canvas, Metasploit Pro etc.

For Proof of concepts/Live demos, check our site: http://www.leoimpact.com

How to defend against advanced cyber attacks?

Use m2 security model developed by cyber security expert Manish Kumar, chief research officer at Leo Impact. All of the following services are nonprofit as per our Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

1. World’s first free antivirus scanning online engine which protects your PC from viruses, trojans, spyware, rootkits, and other malicious programs (zero day exploits) and attachments by using 32+ antivirus on cloud. Visit: www.balajiplus.com

2. To protect against unknown malware (rootlets, trojans, BOTS-Zesus, spyeye, Ghostrat, etc.) and zero day exploits attacks using Neutron+ Protection system software in PC.

3. To protect against remote-based attacks like DDOS, Sql Injections, XSS, and buffer overflow, use cloudflare.com on servers and Free VPN providers ( www.usaip.euwww.vpnreactor.comwww.torproject.orgwww.hotspotshield.com )

4. To protect against data & information leakage and other attacks, use our two-way authentication and free security analysis and consultancy.

Rackspace Hosting Updates Rackspace Hybrid Email for 1.7 Million Users

Rackspace Hosting (NYSE: RAX), the world leader in the hosting and cloud computing industry, has enhanced its popular Rackspace Hybrid Email offering – a custom mix of Hosted Microsoft Exchange and the business-focused Rackspace Email platform on a single domain. Rackspace Hybrid Email now features easy calendar viewing between Hosted Microsoft Exchange and Rackspace Email, as well as a faster webmail design for Rackspace Email to make businesses using Rackspace Hybrid Email even more productive.

Rackspace Hosting Updates Rackspace Hybrid Email for 1.7 Million Users

“We’ve learned from our customers that, on average, only a small percentage of employees really need and use the advanced features of Microsoft Exchange, yet many businesses are paying a lot more to run Exchange for every single user,” said Kirk Averett, director of product for cloud applications at Rackspace. “With Rackspace Hybrid Email, companies can purchase a combination of Exchange and low cost Rackspace Email accounts on a single domain, without sacrificing features for any employee. Most businesses can realise a significant cost savings by utilising this model because they have different types of email users.”

Rackspace Hybrid Email has been a key attraction for Rackspace solution partners and resellers because it provides another unique selling point, in addition to Rackspace’s Fanatical Support. Businesses can reduce total costs by substituting even one Exchange user with Rackspace Email. For example, using an average 80/20 ratio of Rackspace Email to Hosted Exchange, businesses can save more than 60 percent on email with Rackspace Hybrid Email compared to Hosted Exchange alone, and significantly more than hosting their own email in-house.
