Simplified Deployment

PLUMgrid introduces the Life Cycle Manager, which streamlines ONS software installation to rapidly deploy OpenStack cloud networks.

The smart installer dramatically reduces the installation effort and time, allowing users to focus on building advanced cloud applications.    

With the Life Cycle Manager, PLUMgrid software can be installed in Linux containers (LXC), a lightweight, Linux-based virtualization method that can be rapidly deployed. By leveraging this modern container technology, ONS is able to run on any data center infrastructure without modification or configuration changes.

Greater Virtual Network Functions

ONS 2.0 provides a rich portfolio of virtual network functions including routing, switching with Private VLAN, security policies, NAT, and DHCP. In addition, ONS 2.0 is introducing tech previews for DNS as a service and end to end data encryption.

“Hackers don’t take time off. They are constantly assaulting websites using manual and automated scripts, so we wanted to create a service that would keep websites secure all of the time, not just some of the time.” Said Tony Baker, Director at Internet Assure.

Internet Assure offers three distinct packages that focus on creating, protecting and healing wordpress and e-commerce enabled websites. The first package, designed for new WordPress accounts, offers full site configuration.

Join DNS Made Easy this Halloween to maximize uptime and stay online

Reston, Va. (PRWEB) October 31, 2014

Things can get a little scary this time of year. However, DNS Made Easy is ready to provide a safe-haven, at least for DNS services and online availability.

Distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks are scary, and they are no laughing matter. In recent DNS outages, large, well-known companies were down due to DDoS attacks. These attacks are geared at taking down websites, causing Internet traffic jams and stealing information.

“The best policy is to face the issues head-on,” said Steven Job, president of DNS Made Easy. “People can’t let fear stop them from being prepared and making good business decisions.”

DNS Made Easy suggests not getting trapped in the spider web of sticky DNS service. Some companies use hosting services that provide DNS. This is typically included with the package rate of signing on for services. However, most of these companies don’t specialize in DNS safety, redundancy, global load balancing and decreased latency.

That lack of specialized service may translate into significant down time or poor site performance. The end goal of a DNS provider is to maximize uptime and keep traffic flowing to the site.

Managing DNS should not be something that is out of sight and out of mind. Unfortunately, unless a company has a whole team dedicated to keeping up with the latest changes in DNS, can constantly monitor for issues as well as resolve problems, issues can easily be missed.

Outsourcing web traffic management can sometimes seem like another ghoulish cost. Outsourcing some services to experts that value money and provide great ROI can often save your organization’s bottom line. Uptime and fast speeds helps ensure satisfied end users, which increases website visits and reduces abandon rates. All these factors can result in increased conversion and sales.

For any company that leverages the Internet for sales, marketing or information, business continuity depends on 100% site availability and fast loading times. Everything on the Internet relies on DNS: web, e-mail, video, audio, and more.

In order to properly defend against attacks, be on the offensive and maintain uptime, outsourcing DNS is the best bet. DNS Made Easy constantly researches, upgrades, and redesigns their network to exceed industry standards and insure it can defend against modern security threats. With 100% of network management being handled in-house, DNS Made Easy ensures you receive the highest quality of service possible.

DNS Made Easy thwarts DDoS attacks with an IP Anycast system, which is a network infrastructure, made up multiple geographically distributed points of presence around the world. This routing provides global load balancing, redundancy, decreased latency, and a true distributed response to denial of service (DoS) and DDoS attacks. This creates a multi-level backup system.

“With the holiday shopping kick up online, it is best to be on you’re A game,” Job said. “DNS Made Easy can help any business navigate through the scary, and sometime intimidating, pathways of DNS services.”

About DNS Made Easy

DNS Made Easy is a subsidiary of Tiggee LLC, and is a world leader in providing global IP Anycast enterprise DNS services. DNS Made Easy implemented the industry’s first triple independent Anycast cloud architecture for maximum DNS speed and DNS redundancy. Originally launched in 2002, DNS Made Easy’s services have grown to manage hundreds of thousands of customer domains receiving more than 8.0 billion queries per day. Today, DNS Made Easy builds on a proud history of uptime and is the preferred DNS hosting choice for most major brands, especially companies that compare price and performance of enterprise IP Anycast alternatives.

Tony Darrick Baker lost his business to attacks from hackers and a series of server problems back in 2009. Since that time, Baker has dedicated much of his time to researching and discovering ways to make powerful and popular WordPress sites and E-Commerce stores more secure and more reliable. This has led to the creation of a new “done-for-you” service known as Internet Assure.

“You can’t make money if your site is down. It’s important to use a service which keeps watch on the ability of your website to stay in business,” said Tony Baker, director at Internet Assure. “Hackers are always on the move to exploit your server, and while using WordPress as one of the most popular content management systems out there can save you a ton of time in marketing and development, it also leaves a variety of clues and issues that often make your server vulnerable.”

Internet Assure is a group of technicians who work to upload and expertly configure a variety of custom settings and popular plugins that will help secure, track changes, and backup new and existing WordPress sites. This is especially important with WordPress E-Commerce stores that require SSL and shopping carts such as WooCommerce.

Internet Assure performs the following:

Site Security Analysis
Domain and SSL Expiration Reports
Anti-Spam Protection
Scheduled Database and File Backups
DNS Management Options
Site Log Analysis
24 Hour Emergency Service Options

Enables IT Completes Complex Data Center Relocation to Brunswick, Maine Facility

Brunswick, Maine (PRWEB) November 01, 2014

Enables IT successfully completed a complex relocation of former Know Technology clients from a downtown Portland, Maine data center to a larger and more robust facility at the Enables IT US headquarters located on Industrial Parkway in Brunswick, Maine. The relocations and migrations took place between June and October, 2014.

The fifteen client moves varied in complexity from a 1u single server to 42u racks full of servers and storage. The Enables IT team completed the relocation and migrations with a level of expertise exemplified by careful planning and faultless execution. The success of the project was described by client Art Leblanc of Echo First, “This team was simply outstanding. They came up with a conservative and well thought out plan and executed the final phase this morning with skill and an over the top effort that minimized the disruption to our customers and our business.”

Enables IT’s data center engineer, Tim Barthelman, led the project and states “When Enables IT acquired Know Technology, combining data centers into the Brunswick facility brought challenges such as schedule, firewall reconfigurations, IP and DNS edits, 3rd party connections, transport logistics, failover sites, and maintenance websites.” He goes on to say, “Enables IT chose to migrate clients free of charge and the strength of my team proved invaluable in making the changeovers seamless.”

The newly relocated Enables IT clients are housed in a data center with more space, power, cooling, increased security, and access to additional staff. In the near future, the Brunswick data center will complete the process for SOC II Certification which will provide additional security and redundancy for all customers.

About Enables IT:

Enables IT Group plc is a leading provider of cloud computing, managed and professional services with US headquarters in Brunswick, Maine. Enables IT specializes in the delivery and management of mission-critical services, enabling customers to reduce the costs, complexity, and risks associated with their IT infrastructure.

Companies can fortify networks with DNS Made Easy built-in services

RESTON, VA (PRWEB) November 05, 2014

DNS Made Easy, the world leader in IP Anycast DNS services, is launching an initiative to help show companies how to keep their services online, even though some of some of their servers are not. With the use of the DNS Failover service of DNS Made Easy companies can create a competitive advantage. Creating a competitive advantage means having a well-managed technology system that covers for unexpected outages. This means integrating existing knowledge, proven technology management processes and quality control to develop solutions that give businesses what it needs: a network that works.

“At DNS Made Easy, we created the Elite Resolution Platform, which is a multi-tiered framework that creates localized server redundancy and scalability within the enterprise IP Anycast server constellation,” said Steven Job, president of DNS Made Easy. “The localized redundancy provided by the Elite Resolution Platform creates redundant servers within every cluster of servers that are constantly updated through a proprietary multi-tiered zone consistency system we call Peregrine Instant DNS updates.”

These servers will automatically begin responding to queries if query load increases or in the unlikely event that a server experiences a catastrophic failure. The Elite Resolution Services platform enables automatic contingencies such that multiple sites can experience catastrophic outages and all of the remaining sites will smoothly take over and share the query load of the down site(s).

This proprietary platform is implemented at the core of the DNS Made Easy network and guarantees that queries are always answered locally on the name server cluster nearest to the querying client, which is usually the resolving name server.

While Fort Knox wasn’t built in a day and didn’t become one of the most secure places in the world by hiding their gold outside its walls, DNS Made Easy has replicated those efforts in spending millions of dollars and decades securing its network.

Companies who use DNS Made Easy’s services have access to:

Proprietary and open source firewall and intrusion detection services on the DNS services

Proprietary and open source DDoS mitigation devices used to help clean the DNS services

Heavily enforced employee access control and information disclosure policies

Remote traffic black-holing and bandwidth capacity agreements with upstream providers

Distributed infrastructure monitoring utilizing internal and third party monitoring services

Automated zone comparison on all DNS servers

DNS Made Easy operates Internet backbones with the largest and most reliable data providers in the business. Our company provides answers to about 8 billion DNS request each day, all with complete redundancy.

“We believe that having zero downtime is not only expected in the DNS business, but required,” Job said. “Any down time is money lost and that’s unacceptable.”

DNS Made Easy is a subsidiary of Tiggee LLC, and is a world leader in providing global IP Anycast enterprise DNS services. DNS Made Easy implemented the industry’s first triple independent Anycast cloud architecture for maximum DNS speed and DNS redundancy.
