Adnan Raja August 8, 2019 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

Cybersecurity is a hot topic in the IT industry, as IT sector is one of the industries most frequently targeted by malware and ransomware hackers. IT businesses store and handle an abundance of sensitive and valuable data belonging to third parties, government, healthcare and legal entities to name a few, making them a prime target.

Top 5 Ways To Speed Up A Slow Website

Brandon Schroth July 11, 2019 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

Website speed optimization is the make-or-break of user experience. Data shows that user engagement decreases by a whopping 25% for every second increase in a site’s loading time. The digi-world is marked by the very construct that it’s so much easier to get things done online. The World Wide Web is a competing space where the race is on to minimize user input and maximize the time of engagement. A well-designed website becomes redundant when its speed performance is below par, leading to higher churn rates and consequently a lower ROI.

What you should know before enabling IPv6

Marty April 16, 2019 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

As our members roll out IPv6 on our Cloud Platform, I thought it would be a good idea to share some of our findings that will help make jumping into the IPv6 universe easier for you. Hopefully, this saves you some time and effort in your IPv6 deployment.

Most people deploying IPv6 are using dual-stack implementations – meaning they have IPv4 and IPv6 running and allowing traffic on both types of network addresses. We assume you’re already familiar with IPv4 and are now looking to start using IPv6.

Why Atlantic.Net Chose NGINX

This article also appears on NGINX’s blog. Read at NGINX >

Traditionally, web development and hosting were done primarily using the LAMP stack – LAMP being short for Linux (operating system), Apache (web server), MySQL (database), and PHP (programming language), the core components which were then used to run enterprise sites.

As web stacks and load balancers become more agile, and as business needs dictate better performance and stability, it is becoming increasingly common to replace Apache HTTP Server with a lightweight and highly scalable alternative, NGINX. With NGINX, the stack becomes known as LEMP – Linux, (e)NGINX, MySQL, PHP.

Is the Cloud a Good Fit to Host Your Augmented Reality Project?

Adnan Raja February 16, 2018 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

When you hear ‘augmented reality,’ you might initially think about the first-down marker that overlays the field on any televised football game. The markers have become so ubiquitous that you almost forget the players can’t see them when they’re diving for the extra yardage.

If you’re under 25, ‘augmented reality’ might conjure memories of Pokemon Go instead.

But let’s take augmented reality beyond the realm of masses converging on shopping malls and college campuses in search of non-existent pocket monsters, beyond the overlays on a football field, beyond the technology giants like Apple and Google who are bringing augmented reality to our daily lives, and consider the niche players. Plenty of industries, like construction, have the vision to layer an augmented world on top of our own to give architects, engineers and customers a look at what could be before the job is built.

How to Choose the Best Cloud Hosting Platform for Your Analytics Software

Adnan Raja February 12, 2018 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

You could ask 50 different CEOs why they are moving their businesses to the cloud and get 50 different answers. But one of the biggest reasons we’re seeing so much migration to the cloud is because of the exponential growth in data being gathered, stored and analyzed across the economy as a whole.

Most businesses already have complex, dedicated analytic software in place well before they move to the cloud. This analytic software assists employees in making decisions on marketing, advertising, customer retention, supply chains, packing/shipping, warehouse management, delivery routes, human resources and more.

Cloud Backend: The Chief Concern for IoT Standards?

Sam Guiliano July 27, 2016 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

The Internet of thing is growing at a breathtaking pace. That means connectivity at both home and work will become more and more complex. As the IoT makes computing increasingly complicated, some say we should be concerned primarily with the backend rather than interoperability.

  • Speed of IoT Growth
  • A Jumble of Disconnected Cloud Services
  • The Issue of Interoperability
  • Changing the IoT Standardization Focus to the Backend
  • Cloud that Meets Rigorous Standards

Speed of IoT Growth

The Internet of things is expanding at a rapid rate as enterprises and vendors are becoming more aware of the possibilities presented by this all-inclusive approach to connectivity. The IoT market was forecast last year by IDC to grow at a whopping 16.9% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) between 2014 and 2020, rising from $655.8 billion to $1.7 trillion. To put that into perspective, it’s nearly as fast as the growth of public cloud, which is predicted by IDC to achieve a 19.4% CAGR between 2015 and 2019; and keep in mind that much of that public cloud growth will actually be because of the growth of IoT.

Linux Cloud Hosting vs. Windows Cloud Hosting

Adnan Raja July 21, 2016 by under Cloud Hosting 0 Comments

When you spin up a cloud server, a basic and immediate question must be answered first: should you use Windows or Linux? Let’s compare the operating systems, both based on popularity and with a thorough discussion from experts on both sides of the aisle.

  • Which Server OS is Winning?
  • Is Linux or Windows Server Better, Though?
  • 1 – Functionality
  • 2 – Stability
  • 3 – Specific Application to Cloud
  • 4 – Datacenter Cost of Ownership
  • 5 – Enterprise-Grade Data Protection
  • 6 – Datacenter Equipment Requirements
  • 7 – Support from the Developers
  • 8 – Enterprise Authentication
  • Developer-Friendly Cloud Server

Which Server OS is Winning?

Typically, when people think about the two top operating systems, they think of the client-side rivalry between Microsoft’s Windows and Apple’s OSX. However, on the server side, things are a little different: instead of a battle between huge tech corporations, it’s a battle between two tech approaches. Windows Server represents the proprietary side, and Linux represents the open source side.
