The latest software release provides Hive Fabric users with increased operational capabilities including graphics acceleration, NVMe caching, and configurable in-memory storage to further reduce the time needed to support a virtualization environment while also maximizing the performance, capacity, and spend on existing infrastructure.
“Hive Fabric was developed with IT professionals in mind, helping them withstand common industry pain points like flexibility and usability,” said Dan Newton, CEO of HiveIO. “The solution has helped IT in a variety of industries exceed their business goals by creating a virtualization solution that works with users, not against them. We’re continuing to grow with a user-first mindset, and the launch of 7.3 delivers the new capabilities based directly on feedback and needs of current Hive Fabric users.”

Hive Fabric-Enabled Servers
Hive Fabric combines KVM hypervisor, software-defined storage (SDS) & networking, and virtual desktop management, into an all-in-one virtualization solution, eliminating the need for a multi-vendor, multi-contract approach. The new features within the 7.3 solution include:
- Graphics Acceleration – The rise in augmented and virtual reality has increased the need for graphics acceleration, stated HiveIO. To seamlessly improve the performance of virtual machines (VMs), administrators can now install graphics processing units (GPUs) inside of Hive Fabric-enabled servers and then simply turn the acceleration on or off with a single click. Graphics acceleration is available via GPU Sharing or GPU Passthrough and supports NVIDIA, ATI, and Intel.
- Software-Defined Networking (SDN) – With Ethernet consolidating and the speed increasing, a need for IT Administrators to separate traffic and guarantee bandwidth for desktops and applications would become a necessity. Administrators can now add multiple physical and virtual SDNs giving them the flexibility to fit with any network architecture.
- Configurable In-Memory Storage – The SDS capability extends to managing server memory, allowing it to be allocated to either storage or memory for virtual machines, with differing allocations possible on every server.
- Hive Sense – Introduced in 7.3, Hive Sense will allow HiveIO to proactively support customers by sending logs, metrics, and configuration information back to the company. This would reduce the time needed to collect logs or understand how the infrastructure is deployed, so support engineers can resolve issues faster.
“The Hive Fabric UI, coupled with the easy-to-use enhancements in 7.3, empowers administrators of all skill levels to manage the entire data center,” said Toby Coleridge, Vice President of Product at HiveIO. “Organizations can reallocate their highly-skilled specialists to other areas of the business to drive innovation rather than be bogged down with daily administrative tasks.”

Canadian Web Hosting, a Canadian provider of web hosting, cloud hosting, and infrastructure services, has added Real Time Monitoring to its dedicated server and virtual private server (VPS hosting) customers.

Managed VPS and dedicated server provider, Future Hosting, a company based in Southfield, Michigan, has warned server hosting clients of the dangers posed by insecure Memcached instances. When configured incorrectly, the popular caching application could be used by bad actors to launch massive Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks.
Earlier this year, a popular version control platform was targeted by a record-breaking DDoS attack that peaked at 1.35 TB per second. Soon after, that record was broken by a DDoS attack that used insecure Memcached instances to send 1.7 TB per second to its victim, stated Future Hosting. Few businesses can mitigate attacks of this magnitude.
Future Hosting now urges server administrators to ensure that Memcached instances hosted on their servers are configured securely. Memcached should never be reachable from the open internet or configured to respond to requests from arbitrary hosts.
Developers and system administrators without the expertise to securely configure server software should consider hiring a professional system administrator or a managed server hosting provider that can configure a secure hosting environment.
Memcached is used by millions of websites around the world. It is a database that caches the results of database queries to accelerate the performance of web applications. Memcached can be configured to accept connections from arbitrary hosts on the open web. Bad actors could use insecure Memcached instances to launch amplified, reflected DDoS attacks against their victims, taking their websites and applications offline.
Memcached is one of many applications that can be used to amplify the bandwidth available to an attacker: open DNS servers and NTP servers are also common vectors. But Memcached would be significantly more potent. It can be used to amplify the data in a DDoS attack by a factor of more than 50,000, stated Future Hosting.
“Future Hosting provides server hosting for thousands of businesses, and we’re concerned that insecure Memcached instances pose a serious threat to our clients and other businesses on the web,“ said Maulesh Patel, VP of Operations of Future Hosting, “Memcached is ubiquitous on the modern web because of its usefulness, but less experienced system administrators are not configuring it securely, providing bad actors with a DDoS vector that threatens even the largest online businesses.”

US Dedicated now features three total data centers with INAP in Atlanta, Seattle and the most recent addition in Dallas, with plans for more strategic growth with INAP across the US.
“We pride ourselves in providing our customers with the strongest global connection possible.

Canadian Web Hosting, a Canada-based provider of on-demand hosting solutions including shared web hosting, virtual private servers (VPS hosting), cloud hosting, dedicated servers, and IT-as-a-Service, has released a new online backup service called CloudSafe. CloudSafe would guarantee simple backups and restorations with the click of a button.
CloudSafe would offer enterprise-grade AES 256-bit encryption on all backup data – ensuring it can only be accessed and restored by the user. Any data sent to the cloud is automatically encrypted using SSL protocols, which would eliminate the possibility of an outsider gaining access to it.
From full VM images to bare metal and granular data backup to desktop compatibility, Canadian Web Hosting’s CloudSafe solution enables users to select and secure the data no matter where it resides. Backups can be kept in the cloud as well as locally on any network location, so they’re not locked to just one backup destination. Customers can access, share, and restore files from anywhere on the web.
Using Available Bandwidth
“CloudSafe offers you a fully Canadian cloud-backed backup service you can set up on your servers or even at home, giving you the power to control your backup data,” said Matthew Czajka, Canadian Web Hosting’s Cloud Engineer.
CloudSafe also offers block-level backup, which backs up only the changed parts of files. This would mean lower storage costs and more room to work with. It’s also possible to enable automated deletion of outdated data from storage and configure backups to use the most available bandwidth during non-operational hours to ensure that a business runs as smoothly as possible.
