(The Hosting News) –  Jelastic, Inc., the first company to deliver Platform-as-Infrastructure, announced today at JavaOne San Francisco, Jelastic version 2.4 with support for Node.js. From its inception, Jelastic was architected as a polyglot platform. The Platform also supports Java, PHP, Ruby and Python and at the end of 2014, .NET support will be introduced.

The new version broadens Jelastic’s enterprise cloud and multi-language PaaS capabilities by adding Node.js support. Because of the new improvements that 2.4 offers, architects and developers can deploy new or legacy applications to the cloud without code changes, providing them with a scalable, highly-available and secure environment in seconds, and making it ideal for more demanding agile development and DevOps practices.

The added Node.js support in the Jelastic Cloud opened the platform to a whole new audience. Developers are creatures of habit and they all have their preferred coding languages,” said Ruslan Synytsky, CEO of Jelastic. “That’s why Jelastic was initially architected as a true multilingual platform. Supporting Java, PHP, Ruby, Python and now Node.js, shows our commitment to making it even easier for development and deployment of applications in the cloud, providing instant ROI for enterprises worldwide.”

Jelastic Node.js features:

  • Ability to deploy applications from tar, tar.gz, tar.bz2, zip packages across many Node.js nodes
  • Ability to deploy applications from GIT or SVN (known as git-push-deploy)
  • After application is deployed, Jelastic automatically analyzes dependencies required for a running application and installs them automatically
  • Automatic detection of the application startup script
  • Smart redirect from shared load balancer (port 80) to any other port (<1024) which is listened by the node server
  • Supervisor support (supervisor allows you to change your code on fly without restarting node server)
  • Ability to build Node.js cluster with load balancing by a few clicks
  • Automatic vertical and horizontal scaling

All the functionalities of NPM are available:

  • Automatic determination of the modules’ dependency and their further installation
  • Custom scripts execution on pre-deployment and post-deployment stages
  • Out-of-the-box integration with deployment and build management tools like Grunt, Brunch, Foreman etc

“At Elastx, we have had a significant number of requests from our customers for Node.js support by Jelastic. A reasonably large amount of our current users are using or would like to try, for example Angular, so this is great news. Version 2.4 provides our customers with an all-inclusive Node.js implementation that is quick, elastic and supports out-of-the-box integration with popular deployment and build management tools,” said Henrik Grankvist, Business Development Manager, Elastx.

Some other important improvements and features in Jelastic version 2.4:

  • Transferring Environments
  • Automatic Horizontal Scaling
  • Load Alerts
  • Expansion of the App Marketplace

“Jelastic’s new environment transfer feature is a great example of how the platform is maturing to meet the needs of the enterprise developer. It immediately unlocks new levels of time saving as a “Don’t Repeat Yourself” project deployment concept for the PaI era. This great feature means Layershift’s Jelastic PaaS customers now just deploy once to demo, and after project signoff transfer that fully working environment directly to their client. No fuss, no mess, just saves time and effort.” said Damien Ransome, Service Director at Layershift.

Jelastic’s Platform-as-Infrastructure software provides enterprises, integrators and hosting service providers with a rapid path to new and recurring revenue by offering a turnkey cloud solution that delivers PaaS and IaaS in one. Service providers install Jelastic on bare metal servers and can quickly add new customers looking to deploy and manage applications in the Public or Virtual Private Cloud.

Jelastic enables enterprise architects and developers to deploy new or legacy applications to the cloud without any code changes, providing them with a scalable, highly available and secure environment in seconds. Developers can rapidly set up application and database environments and ensure application resource availability with Jelastic’sautomatic vertical and horizontal scaling features. Truly elastic scaling and an innovative pricing model mean that enterprises pay only for resources used, increasing efficiency and driving down costs.

Somewhat misunderstood, often stereotyped and depicted in popular media as nothing more than an introverted, awkward genius with limited social skills and an obsession with Sci-Fi and video games. Watch Now.

Jelastic is the first company to deliver a Platform-as-Infrastructure solution, combining the flexibility (agility) of IaaS and the ease of use (developer’s productivity) of PaaS within a single platform, for a fraction of the cost of existing virtualized environments.

If you follow tech news at all, you have by now probably heard about the “Shellshock” vulnerability affecting Bash across all Linux, BSD, and Unix variants that use the shell program. For dedicated server users, the solution is quite simple, install the latest patched version of Bash. The question that remains, however, is what, if anything hosting users who do not have their own servers can do to prevent falling prey to exploits of Shellshock?

VPS users will typically be able to update their virtual private servers just as dedicated server users would. That means, they can log into their servers via SSH, check for the vulnerability and install the patch. Shared hosting users do not have that luxury and are pretty much at the mercy of their web hosting providers.

What you can do

The first thing you need to do is check your web hosting provider’s news and social media feeds to see if they have published any information about fixing the vulnerability. If you are not familiar with your host’s server architecture, now might be a good time to find out. For all you know, they might not even use Bash at all.

If you do not find any information, it is perfectly reasonable to contact your host for clarification. They will likely provide you with a yes or no. If they are not aware of the problem, your notification should convince them to fix it.

Finally, it will not serve you well to become too obsessed with something that is ultimately out of your hands, but as a customer, it should definitely serve as a test of your provider’s level of communication with users and concern about security. If they are quick to fix it and notify users, you probably have a very good host.

(The Hosting News) – Amazon is working on a patch for its Web Services to reboot 10% of its EC2 servers due to a security fault.

Information Week reported that the tech giant’s EC2 cloud servers contain a “severe hypervisor security defect” in the Xen hypervisor.

“As we explained in emails to the small percentage of our customers who are affected… the instances that need the update require a system restart of the underlying hardware and will be unavailable for a few minutes while the patches are being applied and the host is being rebooted,” said AWS spokesman Jeff Barr.

“While most software updates are applied without a reboot, certain limited types of updates require a restart. Instances requiring a reboot will be staggered so that no two regions or availability zones are impacted at the same time and they will restart with all saved data and all automated configuration intact. Most customers should experience no significant issues with the reboots.”

Amazon first began notifying users on Wednesday of the reboot, giving customers enough time before the patch goes public on October 1st.

Barr noted that this patch is not associated with the Bash Bug that was discovered earlier this week.

(The Hosting News) – Function Point Productivity Software, provider of creative project management solutions, has upgraded their system infrastructure to a cloud computing environment with Amazon Web Services (AWS). The fast-growing company needed greater scalability to match the needs of their users—ad agencies, design studios and internal marketing departments—and AWS provides this, as well as increased reliability, delivery speed, server redundancy, and additional back-up systems.

“Amazon is known as a book company; we know them as a dependable cloud computing environment that gives us tremendous flexibility and reliability, while ensuring the integrity of our systems and our clients’ data,” said Chris Wilson, President and Founder of Function Point. With the migration to AWS, Function Point’s data services have been sharded, or broken down into smaller chunks, across multiple servers, achieving improvements in performance, including boosting the reliability of uptime from 98% to 99.997 % availability.

In addition, an exponential increase in the company‘s server environment includes redundancy that spans across regions. Function Point is now able to provide services on multiple continents with local, dedicated servers. The benefit of quick scalability, is the company can ensure the speed of the system matches the demands of their users. “Knowing we can scale our server environment in a matter of minutes is important,” said Alon Sabi, Vice President of Development Services at Function Point. “Working with this world-class cloud computing technology has been such a pleasure. I sleep better at night knowing we have this project completed.”

Function Point’s utilization of Amazon CloudFront, an innovative content delivery web service, has also improved speed by delivering static content to users with a much higher delivery rate. To safeguard client information and data, extra back-ups have been added that work in real time. Furthermore, these new back-up systems can be deployed as part of Function Point’s main infrastructure in very little time, raising client service response time to an all new level.

The easy way to disable a WordPress plugin for your blog is to log into the dashboard, click “Plugins” and then click “Deactivate”. In some rare instances, however, a plugin might malfunction and prevent you from even being able to log into the dashboard. In such a scenario, you will need to deactivate the plugin manually.

There are two ways you can manually disable a plugin: 1) by disabling the files or 2) by disabling the database entries.

1. Disabling the files

To do this, you will need access to your website’s filesystem through your control panel’s file manager, FTP or direct shell access via SSH. Follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to /wp-content/plugins
  2. Find the directory/folder of the plugin causing the problem
  3. Rename the directory to something else (i.e. badplugin-disabled)

You should now be able to login to WordPress, and you will receive a small error message indicating that the plugin failed to load.

2. Disable the database entry

For this method, you will need access to your database, either through the command line via SSH or through a graphical interface such as phpMyAdmin. Follow these steps:

  1. Find the database table labeled “wp_options
  2. Find the row labeled “active_plugins
  3. The data will something like this: a:1:{i:0;s:19:”badplugin/badplugin.php”;}
  4. Change the “a:1” to “a:0“, which will change the plugin from active to inactive
  5. Save your changes

The second method is a little cleaner than the first, but they both essentially accomplish the same thing. Once you have disabled the plugin, you can try to figure out why it misbehaved or simply delete it and move on from this ordeal.

(The Hosting News) – Open-Xchange, creator of messaging, collaboration and office productivity software has announced the launch of OX Messenger, an instant messaging (IM), voice and video application based on the WebRTC standard. Developed in collaboration with VoIP and web technology specialists, Voiceworks, OX Messenger fully integrates with OX App Suite to offer end users a full set of communication tools from within the browser or mobile app.

OX App Suite users can use OX Messenger to make voice and video calls and send instant messages to other individual users or groups. Single click calling or IM from email chains, diary items and address book contacts streamlines communication making collaboration easier. Non-OX users can also take part in communication through a guest mode, ensuring no one is left out of the conversation. Optional features include the dial out to regular telephone network (PSTN) enabling users to call normal fixed-line and mobile phone numbers.

“The modern communication landscape has become unnecessarily complex with individuals and businesses using multiple siloed applications and services often for a single purpose,” says Rafael Laguna, CEO of Open-Xchange. “These OTT services such as Skype and WhatsApp not only erode into service provider revenue but also make it difficult for users to manage communication with friends and colleagues.

“OX Messenger empowers service providers to combat the threat of OTT services by offering a full suite of communication tools from a single portal. By having IM and video conversations from the same place that users already send email and share files, service providers will offer a simplified user experience and in turn helping to promote customer loyalty.”

OX Messenger is the result of almost two years’ worth of collaborative development between Open-Xchange and Voiceworks. Built on the open source WebRTC standard protocol, OX Messenger offers highly resilient and secure peer to peer communication. A combination of desktop browser use and native apps for mobile ensure consistent and reliable performance and service at home, in the office or on the move. OX Messenger also supports browsers that do not yet support the WebRTC open standard, including Internet Explorer and Safari, by utilizing a proprietary fallback mechanism.

“Integrating voice and video services with other communication platforms has always been a long-term ambition of ours, and collaborating with Open-Xchange has allowed us to achieve this,” says Stijn Nijhuis, CEO of Voiceworks. “Good communication is all about context, and by integrating communication tools directly with productivity tools we believe OX Messenger will allow people to work more effectively together.”

OX Messenger was launched at OX Summit 2014, Europe’s largest open cloud event, at the Muffatwerk in Munich. Service providers will be able to offer OX Messenger to customers from December 2014 as part of OX-as-a-Service or a hybrid hosted OX App Suite installation.

About Open-Xchange

Open-Xchange develops, markets and sells web-based communication, collaboration and office productivity software, which enables full integration of email, documents, scheduling and social media. Built for the cloud, OX App Suite connects business and personal worlds, across devices and legacy systems. Sold and delivered through cloud and hosting providers, telcos and local Internet services companies, OX App Suite gives individuals the freedom to collaborate, work and communicate the way they want to. Founded in 2005, the company is privately owned and headquartered in Nuremberg, Germany, with offices in San Jose, CA, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. For further information, please visit: http://www.open-xchange.com.

(The Hosting News) – A new security bug has been discovered in the Bash software used by Linux and Unix, a bug that security experts are saying could be worse than “Heartbleed.”

According to Reuters, the bug affects the Bash software used on Unix computer that control access to the command line interface.

Cyber security firm Trail of Bits chief executive Dan Guido says the Bash bug is different than Heartbleed in that Heartbleed allowed hackers to spy on computers where Bash enables hackers the ability to control targeted computer systems.

“The method of exploiting this issues is also far simpler. You can just cut and past a line of code and get good results,” said Guido.

“Using this vulnerability, attackers can potentially take over the operating system, access confidential information, make changes, et cetera,” stated security firm Rapid7’s engineering manager Tod Beardsley. “Anybody with systems using Bash needs to deploy the patch immediately.”

Beardsley noted that on a scale from to 10, the Bash bug is a “10.”

The Department of Homeland Security Emergency Reediness Team stated that Unix operating systems such as Linus and Apple Mac OS X could be affected by the vulnerability.

(The Hosting News) – According to Nielsen, the average American owns four digital devices. Marketing Charts, a prominent marketing trends newsletter, says college students own an average of seven. This means a family of four could have files spread across 22 different pieces of technology. Consumers today are storing photos, files, and videos on smartphones, laptops, tablets, multiple DropBox accounts and cloud services—making managing and backing up all that information more challenging than ever. To answer this modern day problem, TDS Telecom (TDS®) is introducing a new personal cloud service called younited by F-Secure.

While traditional file backup services handle personal computer files well, they don’t address today’s mobile technology. Casey Thompson, manager of Consumer Product Development at TDS says, “We all want to know our files—no matter where they are stored—are backed up and secure, but we also need a fast and easy way to make that happen.”

An unlimited number of devices can be backed up with younited and accessed anytime from anywhere via the younited website or the younited app for mobile devices (available for both iOS and Android). More than a simple backup service, younited also allows customers to organize their files and create collections to share.

“What’s so powerful about younited is it allows customers to unify all their files—whether they are photos taken on a smartphone, videos taken on a tablet, important office documents, or files in other cloud services like DropBox,” said Thompson. “With younited, they’re all accessible from one location.”

Younited subscribers can safely share files with friends and family using the service’s secure email and text links or even by linking to a Chromecast TV dongle. Customers also have the option to “unshare” previously shared files for additional control over their digital footprint.

“The service is an incredibly safe way to backup all your important files, and it’s also just so much more convenient,” Thompson said. “It’s automatic so you can ‘set it and forget it’ but still organize, access, and share what you want in seconds.”

The new service is available for $5.95/month or purchased as part of a money-saving Plus Pack. For more information, visit tdstelecom.com/younited (and enter your address) or call 888-CALL-TDS.

TDS customers using the previous Backup Online product will automatically be upgraded to younited.

(The Hosting News) –  FortyCloud, a pioneer in cloud network Security-as-a-Service, today announced that it has joined McAfee’s Security Innovation Alliance™ (SIA) partner program. As part of the SIA program, FortyCloud has completed integration withMcAfee’s Next Generation Firewall (NGFW), enabling all McAfee NGFW customers to securely connect on-premises NGFWs to Infrastructure-as–a-Service (IaaS) deployments on any public cloud. This provides McAfee customers with a way to extend their IT operations to the public cloud without compromising security, while leveraging their investments in McAfee products.

FortyCloud’s innovative solution provides a comprehensive approach to cloud-based security, blending software defined networking and software defined security technologies. This unique approach serves to isolate and interconnect cloud deployments using a distinct “overlay network.” By harnessing FortyCloud’s overlay network, an organization can build and control its own secure, flexible, and scalable virtual private cloud network over any, or over multiple, cloud infrastructure platforms including AmazonRackspace, and Google, as well as data centers.

As the rapid growth of cloud migration continues its upward trajectory, security remains the number one reason CIOs cite for not moving sensitive applications and services to the cloud. According to a 451 Research report, 69% of respondents stated that security overshadowed their concerns over all other cloud migration issues. As cloud deployments mature, so should organizations’ approach to securing identity and access management.

“We’re proud to join McAfee’s SIA partner program and look forward to further enhance the mutual value propositions by integrating with additional McAfee products later this year,” stated Amit Cohen, co-founder and CEO of FortyCloud. “McAfee’s decision to add FortyCloud’s solution to the SIA program underscores their commitment to providing customers with enhanced layers of safeguards and the strongest levels of security for public cloud and hybrid scenarios.”

“We are proud to add FortyCloud to the select list of technology partners in the McAfee SIA program,” said Ed Barry, vice president of the Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee, part of Intel Security. “Our Security Connected strategy embraces technologies beyond our own, and we expect that our joint solution will create powerful new workflows for security and compliance in the cloud.

McAfee NGFW integrates visionary security features with high availability and manageability, delivering advanced network protection across the entire enterprise — from corporate headquarters and branch sites to data centers and the network edge. It is the only next-generation firewall solution to unite anti-evasion security with enterprise-scale availability and manageability. In addition, McAfee’s unique solution can change its capabilities from a next-generation firewall to a L2 firewall, IPS, and firewall/VPN, allowing customers to deploy security where, when, and how they need it to maximize their return on investment.

(The Hosting News) – The FTC has temporarily shut down a Missouri based company due to allegations of a Bitcoin mining scam.

According to CNet, the FTC claims Butterfly Labs sold Bitcoin mining computers to customers but did not deliver the shipments.

“We often see that when a new and little-understood opportunity like bitcoin presents itself, scammers will find ways to capitalize on the public’s excitement and interest,” said FTC’s director of the Bureau of Consumer Protection, Jessica Rich. “We’re pleased the court granted our request to halt this operation, and we look forward to putting the company’s ill-gotten gains back in the hand of consumers.”

The FTC’s complaint states that as of September 2013, the company failed to ship devices to more than 20,000 customers who had already paid for the computers that cost around $149 to $30,000, FoxBusiness reports.

“Butterfly Labs intends to defend our business and our nascent and promising industry.  The government wants to shut Butterfly Labs down, and we are not going away without a fight to vindicate Bitcoin, our company, and our employees,” said Butterfly Labs in a statement on Tuesday. “Butterfly Labs is being portrayed by the FTC as a bogus and fake company. To the contrary, Butterfly Labs is very real.”

Butterfly Labs has refunded around $17 million in refunds and shipped more than $33 million in products.
