How Is the Cloud Enabling Artificial Intelligence?

Adnan Raja January 10, 2018 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

If you’re a science fiction fan like me, the term “artificial intelligence” recalls entities like HAL-9000, Skynet, the Cylons, and the fact that these creations have a bad habit of rising up against their creators and trying to kill us all.

While artificial intelligence (A.I.) has struggled to gain footholds in other niches, it is finding its place in the world of cloud computing, a sort of revolution within the revolution that could rapidly change the face of businesses using cloud computing solutions over the next few years.

The Need for WordPress Migration Plugins

In the 21st century – the Age of Information – most processes, products, and methods today are built to make technology intuitive for users. Modern hardware and software require minimal user intervention. However, somehow, even after 14 years, WordPress has resisted certain intuitive, user-friendly changes. WordPress migrations, in particular, have faced this criticism.

HIPAA vs. HIPPA

Kent Roberts December 13, 2017 by under HIPAA Compliant Hosting 0 Comments

HIPPA compliance? No, HIPAA compliance.

HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. HIPPA is simply a typo. Probably in part because English would typically put two Ps together in the middle of a word (think oppose or appear), HIPAA is often wrongly spelled as HIPPA. It really is extremely difficult to remember how to spell HIPAA, and it is certainly easy to write the acronym incorrectly if you are moving quickly. This article explores topics related to the misspelled form HIPPA, partially as entertainment. It concludes with a brief outline of HIPAA and the Security Rule, more serious considerations.

What is ISO 27001 Compliance as it Relates to Cloud or Dedicated Hosting?

Kent Roberts December 11, 2017 by under Managed Hosting 0 Comments

The year was 1946. Experts from 25 nations convened in London to talk about the breathtakingly pragmatic topic of international standardization. Professionals from myriad fields were getting together to figure out how a common language of quality control, related to how products were manufactured and services provided, could be spoken across continents with ease.

Many people yawn when the topic of compliance is introduced (due to its often dense technicality, its obsessive exactitude related to clarity of specifications, its perception as a snooze-worthy topic, its connection to federal regulations, etc.). Because many view compliance with boredom or indifference, it may be seen as unimportant, but we’re going to take a moment to appreciate how helpful compliance is.

Was Your E-Commerce Hosting ready for the Black Friday Rush?

Adnan Raja December 8, 2017 by under PCI Hosting 0 Comments

In 2016, for the first time in history, Americans spent more money online on Black Friday than they did in retail, avoiding the trampling crowds searching packed department stores for the best deals in retail.

A full 108.5 million customers did their shopping online, according to a survey by the National Retail Federation: nearly 10 million more than the 99.1 million that braved the weather and crowds to do their shopping in person.

Why Choose Atlantic.Net Over the Big Guys

Jennifer Rey November 30, 2017 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

Our knowledge and available time drive our choices. For example, suppose you have a leaky faucet. Should you call a handyman or fix it yourself? If you feel comfortable with plumbing, know how things work inside a faucet, and have the time, you’ll probably go to your nearest big box hardware store, buy a few parts, and fix the faucet yourself. On the other hand, if you don’t know anything about faucets, or if you don’t have time to do the repair yourself, you’ll probably call a handyman. Your knowledge about how faucets work and how much time you have drive your decision about how to fix your leaky faucet.

When it comes to cloud server hosting, these factors also apply. If you know a lot about cloud hosting or have people who can manage things for you, selecting a do-it-yourself cloud hosting provider like Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Compute Engine might be a good option for you. However, if you don’t know a lot about cloud server hosting or don’t have the time or people to take care of it, you’ll probably look for a cloud hosting provider who can set you up with the right solution and then make sure it stays up and running.
