Data Breaches Caused by Misconfigured Servers Within a Healthcare Environment

Richard Bailey September 2, 2019 by under HIPAA Data Centers 0 Comments

Considering high-profile data breaches in the past decade, data security has become a critically important issue within organizations which handle user data online. Particularly for healthcare professionals, protecting confidential and sensitive information is a significant compliance requirement. The mass media is flooded with news headlines and articles about the latest organization to be hit with a large-scale data breach: all-too-familiar stories about the theft of an abundance of personally identifiable information, the negligence of the officials guilty of inadequately securing that data, and the actions to be taken by the victims.

Seismic-Compliant Data Center Requirements

Kent Roberts August 9, 2018 by under HIPAA Data Centers 0 Comments

A Long Beach hospital that nearly reached 100 years in operation had to shut its doors because it was built on an active earthquake fault and is incapable of meeting state-mandatory seismic safety law. The hospital, Community Medical Center Long Beach, sent the city notice to end the lease in four months at the beginning of March, taking effect on July 1st. Earthquake research performed in November discovered an active fault beneath the 200-bed hospital.

Why Choose Atlantic.Net Over the Big Guys

Jennifer Rey November 30, 2017 by under Ashburn Data Center 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 to 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.

We can’t keep up with IT and we need help!

Until recently, businesses adapted to the computer age by purchasing desktop systems and possibly servers, to run a local area network, and maybe a website. IT needs have changed, however, with cloud-based productivity applications, electronic records, and mobile workforces. Keeping up with these and related innovations is vital to business efficiency and profitability, but IT teams tasked with making every digital element in the organization work — and work together – are often overwhelmed, leading to system failures and major problems for business operations.

Businesses typically have different expectations from their IT systems than even a decade ago, and therefore should adapt their approach to IT.  For many, this means closing down that old server room; the number of businesses hosting their network on-premises is projected to fall from 31 percent to 17 percent by 2018. Correspondingly, budget allocations for hosting services will rise by an average of 20 percent for 2017, according to 451 Research.

RAID 10 (RAID 1+0) – What Is It & Should I Use It?

Editorial Team December 21, 2016 by under HIPAA Data Centers 0 Comments

Utilization of RAID 10 in a server provides an increase of disk capabilities while simultaneously providing redundancy and preventing system failure.

What is RAID?

RAID is an acronym that stands for Redundant Array of Independent Disks or Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks, depending on what specialist you ask. The term “independent” is arguably more appropriate, as RAID arrays may sometimes be made with extremely expensive disks.

In layman’s terms, RAID is a method of configuring two or more hard drives to work as a single unit with differing levels of redundancy and allowing better fault tolerance. “A fault-tolerant design enables a system to continue its intended operation, possibly at a reduced level, rather than failing completely, when some part of the system fails.”[i]

Study: Cloud Beats Dedicated Systems on Availability

Adnan Raja October 16, 2016 by under Ashburn Data Center 0 Comments

Availability is one of the biggest concerns of information technology chiefs. The NIH ran a study comparing availability of cloud and dedicated machines. Cloud won.

  • Availability Among Top Three CIO Concerns
  • Availability: Cloud Hosting vs. Dedicated Servers
  • Cloud for Fast Processing of Huge Datasets

Availability Among Top Three CIO Concerns

Unfortunately for CIOs, there are many aspects of their role that can be stressful. For a survey featured in CIO magazine in 2015, 276 CIOs and other top IT leaders discussed the elements that can give them the most trouble; and the top three were security, availability, and making the right hires.

Let’s look specifically at the issue of downtime; in other words, the need to optimize availability.
