  • Source: insideHPC

    Portland, OR, September 06, 2013 --(PR.com)-- High Performance Computing (HPC) publication insideHPC unveiled a major redesign on September 3rd showcasing a clean, modern and functional design. “For more than 7 years, the HPC community has turned to insideHPC as a trusted and unbiased source for news and information,” said Rich Brueckner, President and Editorial Director, insideHPC. “This redesign will showcase our content in a fresh, clean design, fitting to the high performance technologies that we cover.”

    These changes are in response to the markets' demand for content presented in a clear concise format. Other drivers included the increase in website access via tablets and smart phones.

    Benefit to the HPC community:

    The site offers a "responsive Web design" which optimizes the content and advertisements to the size of the visitor’s screen, which provides a better user experience.

    The new design showcases more articles above the fold, and an improved drop down navigation which make it easier for visitors to find and access the information they seek.

    A cleaner design plus an enhanced delivery platform improves the web site performance and audience engagement.

    “This new design also has many benefits to our sponsors,” stated Kevin Normandeau, Publisher, insideHPC. "The new design features large above the fold universal IAB ad units that are integrated into a clutter free environment which improves viability and performance. The responsive web design insures the sponsor’s message is appropriately sized to the prospects screen. Plus, both the sponsors and the HPC community will love many of the new features like the insideHPC White Paper Library."

    PHILADELPHIA, PA, September 06, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Nerds On Site, an internationally-renowned tech outsourcing company, recently commented on a Cloud Tech article that looks into the future of cloud computing. Essentially, clouds are Web-based platforms that allow companies to transfer data, update software by remote, and access information from anywhere in the world with Internet or mobile connection. This has drastically changed the way businesses are run, the article states.

    "Clouds are an affordable and versatile file sharing system," a representative with Nerds On Site says. "Not only do they allow people to share information within a company, outsourcers can make use of the same technology to update software, manage networks, and backup data. The innate backup function of clouds is probably the most prominent feature; instead of having to redundantly save critical company information on expensive servers, clouds store data off-location."

    According to the article, 41 percent of 2012's cloud revenue was generated through Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) systems. There are many different applications and types of cloud services that companies can work with. Some are free to an extent and others offer full-on management and IT support. Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Skydrive and Dropbox) is the most common, yet limited, cloud type out there. With Infrastructure, personal users can privately store or transfer data.

    PaaS clouds, on the other hand, offer several advanced features. The article says lifecycle management, pre-production testing and integration services are typical for PaaS clouds. Usually, these clouds are used by small businesses in need of something more powerful to handle large amounts of data. Infrastructure Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), though, is a growing platform that incorporates several remote features.

    For SaaS clouds, complete online backup and recovery systems are essential. These prevent security breaches and data damages from natural disasters like fires, earthquakes and floods. With structured data backup, companies do not need to spend every remaining resource rebuilding what they already had. IT management is typical of most SaaS clouds as well.

    "IT management through clouds includes a number of different services, given a company's

    situation," Nerds On Site says. "Via remote, IT companies can monitor entire networks and look for ways to improve them, provide IT services, update a company's software and optimize connections and communication systems. Also, certain management packages come with resource management systems, online billing software and other planning services that help businesses streamline their operations."

    According to the article, research shows that the compound annual growth rates of PaaS clouds will increase by 41 percent by 2016. Also, cloud computing in 2012 yielded $5.7 billion in revenue, though a study by 451 Research says the industry will most likely hit $20 billion over the next three years. SaaS is the slowest growing type of cloud, though much of this is due to businesses just now learning about its many benefits. According to the article, companies take on clouds to reduce overhead costs of bulky internal servers and PCs, reduce data loss risk, and increase corporate communication.

    "As technology advances, companies will likely become more comfortable switching over to the cloud," Nerds On Site says.

    ABOUT:

    Based in Canada, Nerds On Site has provided worldwide IT support for the past decade. The company has physical locations in several different countries, including South Africa, Mexico, Bolivia and the United Kingdom. It also has more than 50 locations throughout the United States.

    LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - September 6, 2013) - DreamHost®, a global leader in web hosting and cloud storage and computing services, today announced a rapid-fire series of limited-time promotions leading up to the sixteenth anniversary of the registration of the "dreamhost.com" domain name.

    "What's this all about?" asked DreamHost, wearily. "Am I in trouble or something?"

    Mr. DreamHost shot a knowing glance across the kitchen table to his wife of 22 years "Well, DreamHost, Your mother and I have been talking. You'll be turning sixteen this year and that only happens once in a girl's life."

    "I remember when I turned sixteen," recalled Mrs. DreamHost. "I wrote ridiculous press releases that no one ever bothered to read back then, too. You remind me so much of myself when I was a girl!"

    "I'll never forget the day you were born, Princess. SATA was just a twinkle in our eyes, bandwidth cost a fortune, and the only CSS the world knew was a weak DVD copy protection scheme." Mr. DreamHost paused to rest a hand atop his wife's shoulder. "Things were simpler back then, DreamHost. You don't know how lucky you are to be here -- or how lucky the world is to have you."

    DreamHost could only roll her eyes. "God, you guys are so lame!" she shouted. "I'm just going to give stuff away for sixteen days and I don't care what you say. Starting tomorrow, September 7th, I'll put a link to these promos right up there on my homepage, and anyone who wants to get in on this hot action can just click their way in. Serious. I'm gonna be giving it out on the daily, Mom and Dad, and there's nothing you can do about it!"

    The sadness in her mother's eyes was clear. "But we love you so much, DreamHost! Why would you want to hurt us like this?"

    "You guys are so old school! You don't understand anything! Life's not about where you've been, it's about where you're going -- and I'm going places. Like right now! If you need me, I'll be down by the river staying in Brett's trailer. He's in COLLEGE."

    And with that, DreamHost stormed out of her parents' lavishly-appointed townhouse, slamming the door behind her.

    "Kids!" said Mr. and Mrs. DreamHost in unison.

    Just then, DreamHost's houseguest, Inktank, wandered in from the family room. "Hey guys, I think we're out of beer. Did you want me to run to the store or...were you guys...or...? Ooookay, I'll go. Should I like, hit up Redbox on the way? Oblivion's supposed to be pretty good, right? Yeah, I'll hook that up. Be right back!"

    About DreamHost
    DreamHost is a global Web hosting and cloud services provider with over 375,000 customers and 1.2 million blogs, websites and apps hosted.

    SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - September 6, 2013) - LightPointe Wireless, the number one manufacturer of Free Space Optics laser bridges and a leader in 60 and 70/80 GHz wireless backhaul links, is celebrating "NASA month" in September to highlight the space agency's transition to the next era in space communications which utilizes lasers to transmit data, rather than radios. Today, September 6th, NASA will launch a Minotaur V rocket from Wallops Flight Facility which will include a lunar satellite with laser transmission capability. The satellite, once it nears the moon, will serve as one of the links in the Lunar Laser Communication Demonstration (LLCD). LLCD will be NASA's first step in creating a high performance space-based laser communications system.

    LLCD's main mission objective is to transmit hundreds of millions of bits of data per second from the moon to the Earth, which is the equivalent of 100 HD television channels simultaneously. Since 1998, LightPointe has pioneered advancements in such laser transmission systems for use in 3G and 4G/LTE networks, and for building-to-building enterprise connectivity, including school campuses, hospitals, and businesses. Such terrestrial wireless bridges transmit Gigabit capacity broadband data up to a mile. NASA's laser link, however, will transmit to the moon -- 238,000 miles away. The benefits of laser data transmission include much higher capacity, lower latency, lower energy consumption, immunity from radio frequency interference, and superior signal security, since the transmissions are virtually impossible to intercept.

    "NASA's transition to Free Space Optics illustrates how far the technology has come and the benefits of data transmission over laser," said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of LightPointe and a pioneer in optical communications systems. "No one could have predicted that laser transmission technology would evolve to a point where NASA would deploy it to communicate with satellites near the moon. It is truly a milestone in the communications industry for a Free Space Optics link, operating at only half a Watt, to transmit data over 238,000 miles. All of us at LightPointe honor the vision and hard work of engineers involved in the project."

    LLCD is NASA's first dedicated system for two-way communication using laser instead of radio waves. Similar to LightPointe's Free Space Optics links used for terrestrial data transmission, the NASA Ground Laser Terminal utilizes four transmission laser lenses and four receive lenses, providing higher reliability and excellent capacity. The Ground Laser will communicate with the Lunar Atmospheric and Dust Environment Explorer satellite (LADEE).

    "LLCD is designed to send six times more data from the moon using a smaller transmitter with 25 percent less power as compared to the equivalent state-of-the-art radio (RF) system," said Don Cornwell, LLCD manager for NASA, in a NASA statement. "Lasers are also more secure and less susceptible to interference and jamming."

    For more information on the NASA mission or the use of Free Space Optics for secure Gigabit-capacity, ultra low latency (ULL) terrestrial broadband communications, please visit www.LightPointe.com.

    About LightPointe Communications, Inc.
    LightPointe (www.LightPointe.com) is a San Diego-based manufacturer of wireless Gigabit capacity bridges for enterprise and 4G/LTE carrier markets. The company is owned by a billion-dollar Silicon Valley firm and employees.

    MONTEREY, CA, September 07, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Pinnacle Payroll Solutions is excited to announce that our new partnership with SaaShr.com will allow us to offer the latest and best payroll system software available on the market today. This new partnership greatly expands the services that Pinnacle can provide to our clients and will propel the company to the forefront of the payroll services market. Some of the functionality that Pinnacle can now offer include:

    - Time and Attendance Function: Whether caused by human error, paper time cards, or employee time theft, "payroll leakage" is a common problem for most companies. Lost payroll dollars can quickly impact the company's bottom line. The SaaShr system uses cutting-edge labor management solutions to improve your internal process and increase profitability. Whether you need a small business edition or a mid-market addition, Pinnacle offers the solutions you need, and you can seamlessly upgrade as your company grows. Automating your payroll system can save hours on every payroll run, which allows you to focus on your core business.

    - Feature-Rich Time and Labor Management: As a company grows, it often outgrows its time and labor management processes, and finding a replacement solution can be difficult. Pinpay.com and SaaShr offer a solution that will address your growing company's increased complexities, while reducing your risk of compliance liabilities. More than just collecting attendance data, the Mid-Market Edition (MME) uses powerful workflow tools that can handle practically any business scenario. The versatile reporting and analysis tools enable you to track virtually any aspect of your employees' time and attendance data, including activity patterns and anticipated changes.

    - Time and Attendance Hardware: We understand that you might need more methods of collecting attendance and time data than just a personal computer or standard kiosk. Therefore, Pinnacle Payroll Solutions and SaaShr offer a variety of data collection hardware devices to handle your needs. We can help you collect attendance data in real-time using the Internet, or you can use a store-and forward manner with a dedicated phone line.

    - Kronos InTouch: In recent years, workforce management systems have increasingly relocated data from on-premise storage to the cloud, while at the same time increasing integration and becoming more user friendly. While these changes have improved the management side, the time-keeping devices used by employees have not evolved as quickly. With Kronos InTouch, Pinnacle is able to offer a variety of features and functions in one easy tool. InTouch allows you to customize the latest hardware technology to use data collection options such as biometrics, magnetic strip, proximity reader, and bar code.

    In addition to these outstanding features, Pinnacle is most excited about our newest feature: the mobile application, the first time we have been able to offer this functionality. Our mobile application will make it easy for your employees to time in, request time off, check schedules, check timesheets, and view accrual balances. This new software upgrade will also give Pinnacle's clients the flexibility of running their payroll from any mobile device.

    At Pinnacle, we understand that your workforce is more mobile than ever, including your payroll department. Approximately 59 percent of small to mid-sized companies are using mobile technology to conduct business operations. In response to this trend, we now offer a mobile application designed for companies who have a mobile workforce. The mobile application gives you full payroll management, including time and labor management, payroll, and human resources. Managers and employees can use the system to view which employees are timed in and out, which is perfect to help remote employees connect with each other more easily.

    In addition to the new services, we have always prided ourselves on our ability to tailor our services to suit each client's unique needs, such as allowing employers to offer both direct deposit and paper checks, create reports for analysis and budgeting, and minimize payroll errors. Pinnacle Payroll Solutions also has an integrated 401(k) system to monitor contributions. Another service offered is HR On-Demand, so employers can work with online resources and professional consultants if they encounter a complex situation and need advice.

    Pinnacle Payroll Solutions, founded in 1990, offers online services to help small and mid-sized businesses, including employee benefit programs, timekeeping systems, and human resources software. Co-founder Colleen Johnson uses her experience as CFO for five previous corporations to guide their clients through their business operations.

Pinnacle provides their cost-effective payroll services in more than 45 states and maintains BBB accreditation. We are also affiliated with the American Payroll Association, Integrity in Payroll Planning Alliance, and California Moving and Storage Association.

    PHILADELPHIA, PA, September 07, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Fiberlink, a global leader in cloud-based EMM (enterprise mobility management) recently announced the results of its new online survey, which was conducted by Harris Interactive. This survey revealed that employees are unknowingly putting enterprise data at great risk on their smartphones and tablets. Among the 2,064 working age adults in the U.S. surveyed about their mobile behavior, 51% of them use their personal smartphones and/or tablet devices for work purposes. An overwhelming majority of those however, are not part of a formalized Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program with no controls in place to hamper risky behaviors.

    In one example, among those employees that did use mobile devices for work (either corporate-issued or their own), this survey showed:

    - 25 percent either opened or saved a work attachment file into a third party app, such as Evernote, Dropbox or QuickOffice.
    - 20 percent admitted to having cut and pasted work related attachments or email from company email to their personal accounts.
    - 18 percent claim that they have accessed websites that are blocked by a company IT policy.

    While using their personal devices for work is a matter of employee convenience, it is a matter of security for their employers. Some of the top security issues include corporate data leakage, violation of corporate use policies and regulatory compliance, and malicious applications, each of which have the potential to compromise enterprise data. In the absence of proper EMM solutions, risky employee behavior on mobile devices, whether malicious or accidental, is simply a matter of the inevitable.

    One approach for separating personal and work data is through "dual persona," where sensitive business info is encapsulated in a trusted workplace, or a container on the device. This means that corporate applications, corporate email, and corporate documents all reside in a container separated from everything else available. This containment policy will allow IT to control what matters most for a company, while not having to invade the personal privacy of employees and their personal applications.

    Despite the potential for some data loss, less than one half of a percent of employees claim that they currently have such a solution installed on their personal mobile devices. The good news for employers and employees alike is that there is a strong appetite among workers for comprehensive solutions. The survey revealed that 61 percent of employees that use personal mobile devices for work (and do not have a solution installed already) are at least somewhat likely to want to install such a solution if it were offered by their employer.

    "Today's work environment is a co-mingled mash-up of personal and professional activities. It's not about sacrificing one for the other," said Jonathan Dale, Fiberlink's director of marketing. "Many organizations, including our customers, are starting to prefer the idea of a dual personal solution because it keeps enterprise data safe while allowing employees the freedom to work on their own devices."

    For the purposes of this particular study, the term "employees" refers to individuals that are employed both full and part time, as well as self-employed individuals.

    Survey Methodology

    This survey was conducted on the internet within the U.S. on behalf of Fiberlink by Harris Interactive from April 18-22, 2013 among 2,064 adults (of those, 1,071 were employed part time, full time and/or self-employed) ages 18 and up. This internet survey is not based on a probability sample. Because of this, no estimate of theoretical sampling error can be accurately calculated. Those seeking additional information about this survey can find it on the Fiberlink blog: http://www.maas360.com/maasters/blog/mobilitymanagement/byod-still-ri ... terprises/

    Moscow, Russia, September 07, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Softeza announces the new version of Actual Installer, software deployment and installing tool. The program provides a quick step-by-step way to create an installation package of both simple indy-products and enterprise-level software.

    One of the key steps of the software development process is to deliver the product to the end user with maximum comfort. This typically includes installing all necessary executables and DLLs, creating required registry entries, checking if prerequisites are installed or install them, registering services, COM servers or fonts and many other options.

    Actual Installer 5.0 released by Softeza takes all the above steps upon itself producing easy-to-use yet versatile installers equally suitable for simple application installations and for enterprise-level software. The core principle of Actual Installer is script-free building of software installers. In particular, the program features the Wizard that guides a developer through the entire process step by step and generates a ready to distribute installation package at the output. The user only needs to fill out forms, choose the desired installation options and browse for files to include to the setup package.

    Aside from the handy wizard, the new version also includes the support for ODBC DSN, eliminates administrator permission issues and fixes a number of minor problems found in earlier versions.

    Actual Installer provides the entire range of capabilities a developer needs: installing different files to different locations, registry and INI-files modification, shortcuts, 100% support for the Add/Remove programs applet, software prerequisites, multilingual setups, silent installations and command line parameters. At the same time its straightforward interface and the steep learning curve make this program welcoming to beginner developers.

    Pricing and availability
    Actual Installer is available in two license options: Free and Pro. The free version lacks of some features of the Pro, but it is free. The Pro license for an individual developer costs $89.95, while the license for a company costs $249.95. The program is compatible with all Windows versions including Windows 7 and 8.

    About
    Softeza has been on the software utility market since 2004. Among the products developed by the company are the flagship Actual Installer, 1Click Uninstaller, Max Data Recovery, Max File Encryption.

My products make it simple, easy and affordable. Even the most basic website empowers set the seeds for growth of products and ideas. You can’t rely on social media to be your only online presence. There’s little control over the content, any ads that may appear or what comments are made . A robust website that you control to engage your visitors is a crucial element in maintaining your company’s image and driving consumers to your store front, whether it be completely virtual or brick and mortar.”

    Gilbert, AZ, September 07, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Envoy Data Corporation, a specialty distributor of IT security solutions, today announced a strategic partnership with iScan Online, Inc., to expand the market presence of iScan Online’s innovative Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Security Scanning solutions within North America.

    The distribution agreement offers key expansion opportunities for reaching service providers focused on the Small- and Medium-Sized Business (SMB) market. With the growth of mobility and adoption of BYOD across the globe, security and compliance challenges continue to be a top priority. iScan Online delivers the industry’s first multi-tenant cloud console for service providers to address the security assessment of remote workers and mobile device vulnerabilities.

    “We’re here to bring cutting-edge products into the rapidly evolving technology and communications markets,” said Jeff Ciraulo, President of Envoy Data. “iScan Online’s unique suite of products helps preserve the integrity of service providers’ and enterprises’ infrastructure against a broad range of new and developing threats while maintaining a great user experience at the same time.”

    Given the social aspect of today's workforce, iScan Online allows users to scan anyone, anytime and anywhere with an Internet connection and the iScan CloudApp. Alternatively, iScan Online now offers a downloadable version for integrating with popular Remote Monitoring and Management solutions.

    To date, iScan Online is the first and only vendor to perform Vulnerability, PCI and Data Discovery scanning on mobile devices, servers and desktops without installing complex software or the need for hardware. iScan Online currently supports the scanning of Microsoft Windows, Apple OS X, Apple iOS and Android mobile devices.

    “The service provider market is looking for new solutions to address the new and serious challenges that BYOD and mobility pose to security and compliance,” said Billy Austin, President of iScan Online. “We know that iScan Online has a great solution, but reaching these providers can be a hurdle. Working with Envoy Data, we are confident the iScan Online message will reach the appropriate parties throughout North America.”

    The winner of the MSPWorld Cup Award™ 2013 from MSP Alliance, iScan Online was recognized for pioneering BYOD and mobile device security scanning for vulnerabilities, compliance (PCI, HIPAA and NCUA) and Data Discovery (PAN, PII and PHI).
