HC Extends Its U.S. Private Cloud Servers Free Tier To Europe

HostColor.com (HC), announced the extension of its Business Private Cloud Server services to Europe. Last month the company made available a “Private Cloud Free Tier” to its U.S. customers.

South Bend, Indiana, United States - April 15, 2019 /MarketersMedia/ —

HC has started provisioning Business Private Cloud Servers on its "Free Tier Private Cloud" from five European locations in Amsterdam, Copenhagen, London, Vienna and Sofia.

The "Free Tier" is a Private Cloud service that comes with 1 CPU Core, 1 GB vRAM, 10 GB SATA Storage and 40 GB monthly data transfer quota on 100 Mbps Internet Connection. The limits of the HC "Free Tier" are specified in the service specification published on the HC Private Cloud Servers section and there are no hidden terms or restrictions.

Private Clouds are computing instances configured on demand to support certain workloads that the organizations need to move to "The Cloud". The Private Cloud Servers are not visible over the public Internet. They are secure computing instances created for internal use and the organizations operate them behind firewalls and access them through virtual private networks.

Host Color says in its news release that the "Free Private Cloud Tier guarantees that business owners who move certain workloads to their own Private Clouds will have full control over the resource usage and their monthly service bills” as overcharging for computing resource usage and especially for data transfer is a growing concern for those who use the so-called "major clouds".

"Unlike the similar services offered by the major clouds, the Host Color's "Free Private Cloud Tier" does not set limits on the number of hours that anyone can use the service in a calendar month", says Host Color’s CEO Dimitar Avramov. He adds that HC doesn’t impose limits on the number of computing tasks and operations which can be executed. "On the AWS free tier, for example there are "20,000 times where the user can you retrieve a file from Amazon S3” and the client is charged after that. On HC Cloud, there are no such limits", explains the Host Color’s CEO.

The European Cloud services are provisioned and hosted on top of the HostColorEurope.com (HCE) Cloud Computing infrastructure built with VMware ESXi - arguably the world's most reliable virtualization technology, used by the large financial institutions and organizations that need to have an IT infrastructure with 100% availability. The HC clients' data is hosted and well-protected on a enterprise grade Fault-Tolerant Storage Area Network (SAN), which features built-in protection and safeguards the information under any circumstances without performance impact.

HC has recently launched a Managed Public and Private Cloud Servers. The Managed services include initial setup, installation of Windows or Linux based operating system, antivirus and anti-spam protection, configuration of the Public or a Private Cloud environment to the client’s custom settings, regular maintenance and updates of all software programs and applications, 24/7/365 resource monitoring, security updates, reboots, Cloud instance recovery and data backups.

ESSEN, Germany — How do you teach tech-savvy kids to safely navigate the digital world? In Germany, you bring in the teenagers. On a recent day, 18-year-old Chantal Hueben stood in front of a group of fifth-graders and asked them to brainstorm about the messaging program Whatsapp, which most are using to participate in a group chat for their class. They spoke about themes like cyberbullying and what material is OK to post.

Apple previews new software as it diversifies beyond iPhones

Jun 16, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Apple, beset by falling iPhone sales, announced upcoming changes to its phone and computer software intended to highlight its new digital services and to further position it as a defender of personal privacy. The revisions previewed Monday during a conference in San Jose, California, included a new feature that will let people log into apps and other services with an Apple ID instead of relying on similar sign-in options from Facebook and Google — two companies that mine data to sell advertising. Apple said it won't collect tracking information about users from that service. As part...

Virtual reality helps police learn to interact with autistic

Jun 16, 2019

WASHINGTON — An autistic man walks out of a store without paying for a toy he picked up. He's followed by a storekeeper demanding he come back inside. The situation quickly escalates, and police are called. Officers arrive, their patrol car's lights flashing and sirens blaring, to find the man in the parking lot, yelling and not responding to their commands. They have a choice: confront the man and risk having the situation turn violent or regroup to figure out a different approach. The scenario is part of a virtual reality simulation for police that's being developed by Axon —...

Anti-groping smartphone app highly popular in Japan

Jun 16, 2019

TOKYO — A smartphone app developed by Japanese police is being widely downloaded by women trying to protect themselves from gropers on packed rush-hour trains. The "Digi Police" app was originally issued by Tokyo police three years ago, but a function to scare off molesters was only added a few months ago. Since then, the app has reportedly been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times — unusual for a government-developed mobile application. Women in crowded trains and other public places in Japan often face sexual harassment, but are typically too afraid to call out for help. With the app, victims...

Nonprofits turn to cryptocurrency to help needy Venezuelans

Jun 16, 2019

BARQUISIMETO, Venezuela — Andreina Cordero started the year skipping meals so her three kids could eat. Her husband, a construction worker, was out of a job. And the family's savings had been devastated by the nation's hyperinflation, limiting Cordero's children to a diet of rice, beans, pasta and fried corn patties. But the family got a break from their daily struggle to feed themselves this spring when a social worker enrolled them in a program run by a Silicon Valley startup that is donating cryptocurrency to hundreds of Venezuelan families. Every week from February to April, Cordero received a deposit...
