Glenn December 1, 2010 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

This is the second in a series of four posts exploring how cloud hosting offers significant advantages to companies who want to scale their business.

In this post: Scalable computing grows with businesses.

One of the main advantages of Cloud Hosting is its scalability. This is just another way of saying that it’s easy to add or remove computing capacity, bandwidth, storage and user accounts. Since you don’t need to have any hardware or software installed locally, it’s extremely easy to add more capacity when you need it, or decommission capacity when it’s sitting idle.  The model is very flexible!

Database servers are a cornerstone of modern businesses ranging from Google to 7-Eleven. When you run your credit card at a convenience or grocery store, your purchase is registered at a point of sale system backed by a database. Your credit card company registers the funds transfer into a database server containing your financial records. If you use a discount card, yet another database server comes into play. Databases enable businesses to track inventory, perform margin analysis, automate purchases, and identify customer trends—and to do all of this much more quickly and efficiently than ever before!

Electronic Medical Records Made Easy With Managed Hosting

Glenn June 1, 2010 by under HIPAA Compliant Hosting 0 Comments

The complexity of our health care system has grown over the years making it more difficult for practitioners to stay informed about their patients health histories. Electronic Medical Records will help solve this problem. This method reduces the amount of paperwork involved in the process; while at the same time increasing access to these records by making them available electronically. EMR/EHR systems enable the practitioner to view a patient’s complete health event summary, historical reports and previous treatment records. This has resulted in an enormous gain in productivity in practices staffed with multiple physicians. The advantages are also evident in regard to patients with multiple aliments and in emergency medical situations.

Physicians today are faced with many obstacles due to recent regulations created by Health Care Reform.

Atlantic.Net Sponsors Orlando’s 3rd Annual Walk-For-Wishes

Glenn March 19, 2010 by under Announcements 0 Comments

I would like to thank our staff and our local community who pulled together to help support the Make-A-Wish Foundation’s 3rd annual “Walk-For- Wishes” at Lake Eola in Orlando Florida.

I woke up thinking that the weather was going to ruin this event, but I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful, usually unpredictable, Florida weather which contributed to a fantastic evening walk!  Attendance for this event far surpassed my expectations and this truly was a fun-filled event!  There were food, fun, games, and giveaways!  The best surprise of all was a special appearance by the Orlando Predator cheerleaders who got the crowd involved in an impromptu show of football skills, something I couldn’t do in heels!  Before the walk, 98.9 WMMO played the best hits of yesterday and today, and a tough competition of “Corn Hole” ensued!  I am sure some of the folks took advantage of the FREE 10 minute massages by another sponsor!

HIMSS Conference- A fresh Prospective on Healthcare IT

Glenn March 6, 2010 by under HIPAA Compliant Hosting 0 Comments

With the passage of Healthcare Reform by Congress, there is a lot of talk about healthcare in the IT business community.  Healthcare already accounts for about $2 trillion in federal spending each year; almost one out of every seven dollars spent in the U.S is related to healthcare.  It looks as if billions more will be funneled into the healthcare IT segment, thanks to the new federal initiatives that require health care providers to maintain medical records electronically.  This explains why almost every technology vendor out there is evaluating and exploring opportunities within the health care sector.

We sent Sam G. to the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society Expo (HIMSS) in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this month to do some investigating.

Server Disposal: How to Dispose of Old Computers and Servers

Adnan Raja July 9, 2009 by under Dedicated Hosting 0 Comments

Several weeks ago it was decided across the board that I needed a fast computer for my daily activities here in our corporate office.  I contacted our NOC, told them what I wanted and a few days later a shiny new desktop sat atop my desk. I took care of all of the necessary transfer of data and whatnots and politely asked the guys, “So what do you want me to do with this dinosaur? Toss it?” They looked at me like I had a third eye and quickly informed me that there are “proper” ways to dispose of your computer. Gently removing it from my death grip they carried it out of my office, never to be seen again.
