SSH stands for “Secure Shell” and is an encrypted protocol used to log in and manage a remote server. SSH also supports various authentication mechanisms. SSH uses password-based authentication and public key-based authentication for a secure connection between a client and a server. SSH key-based authentication is more secure than password-based authentication because keys are very hard to guess or crack using currently available computing power.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to set up SSH key-based authentication on an Ubuntu 18.04 server.

Database clustering is the process of combining multiple servers by connecting them to a single database. Clustering improves your database’s availability by distributing load to different servers. If any server fails, others are quickly available to continue serving.

MariaDB Galera is a multi-master clustering solution that allows you to read and write to any node in the cluster. With MariaDB Galera, a change made to any one node is replicated to all nodes. MariaDB Galera supports the XtraDB/InnoDB storage engines and is available on Linux only.

How to Setup MariaDB Master Slave Replication on Ubuntu 18.04

Hitesh Jethva February 19, 2020 by under VPS Hosting 0 Comments

MariaDB is a free, open-source relational database management system, and is one of the most popular options. Replication is the process of copying data from one master database server to another slave database server. In the master-slave topology, one server acts as the master and other servers act as slaves. In master-slave replication, data is replicated one-way only. If you change the data on the slave server, it will not be replicated to the master server. If the master server goes down, you can still recover your data from the slave server.

Why is Encryption So Key to HIPAA Compliance?

Kent Roberts February 14, 2020 by under HIPAA Compliant Hosting 0 Comments

Encryption is fundamentally important to meeting the guidelines of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). Encryption is critical to meeting HIPAA compliance because encryption cloaks your most sensitive data from unauthorized viewing. This digital process uses standardized protocols to scramble all the data that is transmitted by a user into a code that makes it undecipherable. In other words, encrypted information is unreadable to any computer peering (accessing it) between the source and destination. Only the person sending the message and the one receiving it can see what is being communicated. In order to decrypt the information back into readable information, digital tools called keys are needed. Keys let the sender and receiver see the data and, afterwards, encrypt it again so that no one else can see it.
