Cloud Foundry makes it possible for enterprises to build, test, deploy and scale software significantly faster.
Cost-efficient pricing structure:                                                      In most web hosting, you pay monthly charges, whether you use any of the resources in that month or not, but you have to pay monthly.In cloud hosting, you get on-demand services so as you pay according to your usage.Easy to scale:                          Scaling the resources has become more accessible with cloud hosting, which had been hard to do with server computing.Cloud hosting gives intuitive site management and dashboard that let you view your site’s performance.High uptime:                         Cloud hosting gives the maximum uptime.As your server will be virtually using the resources, so if one server goes down, you can use any other server, and as a result, the site will not go offline for an extended period.   
Microsoft’s family of low- and no-code application tools is one of its fastest growing developer platforms. Building on top of technologies from the Dynamics line-of-business applications and from Office, the Power Platform is perhaps best thought of as the spiritual successor to familiar tools such as Visual Basic for Applications: a quick way of building those little applications to solve problems that don’t merit diverting limited developer resources.Until recently much of the Power Platform tools focused on building and managing workflows using Power Automate for basic business process automation and Power Apps as a basic front-end application builder, with a focus on constructing forms and queries. Much like Visual Basic did for client-server computing, they’re a translation for general audiences of the API and message foundations of modern, cloud-centric, distributed computing.To read this article in full, please click here
Chief Linux maintainer job is all about reading many, many, many emails, and 'saying no'Linux inventor (and chief maintainer) Linus Torvalds says that the kernel is getting more reliable, and he is not anxious about it being used in safety-critical systems.Torvalds, being interviewed on stage at the Open Source Summit in Lyon yesterday, told onlookers: "I don't do speeches any more."The Finnish-American engineer is responsible for creating two of the most significant software projects of the last 30 years, one being Linux (which dominates both server computing and, in the form of Android, mobile devices), and the other being git, the most popular source code management and collaboration tool.Asking the questions was Dirk Hohndel, chief open source officer at VMware.The bugs that get noticed are just more subtle because we have better testing infrastructure, we have better tools for both dynamic and static checking of the sources," said Torvalds.

Version 1.0 of spec ratified, available shortlyBig-name tech companies will together unveil yet another interconnect, this one dubbed Compute Express Link or CXL, which is aimed at plugging data-center CPUs into accelerator chips.The technology is built on fifth-generation PCIe protocols and electrical connections, meaning it can top out at 32 billion data transfers per second, or up to 128GB/s using x16 lanes.Support for the high-speed interface is set to appear in chipsets in 2020, and in shipping products in 2021, we're told.For now, it's aimed at accelerators: think graphics chips, FPGAs, and ASICs.Indeed, the techies working on the blueprints hope it will become a future standard for connecting server processors to silicon dedicated to handling AI, network packets, security, and so on, at high speed.
If you have ever had to provision and configure a server, you know the pain it can bring.Take the process of configuring hardware connections, the software stack, and their interdependencies, and then multiply that across however many servers you are deploying—you are talking days and days of tedium.Scripts are often the solution to performing repetitive tasks, but even there, scripting has its limitations, because scripts are mostly linear if-then statements that don’t have the strength and capabilities of application code.[ Get InfoWorld's expert guidance on configuration-management tools: Learn why to use Puppet, why to use Chef, why to use SaltStack, and why to use Ansible. ]This is where infrastructure as code (IAC) comes in.IAC—sometimes referred to as programmable or statically defined infrastructure (SDI)—is a type of IT setup to automatically manage and provision the technology stack from hardware through the software layers, with greater control than scripting and far more automation.
In a rare move, government officials have handed security researchers a seized server believed to be used by North Korean hackers to launch dozens of targeted attacks last year.The hackers sent malicious Word document by email that would when opened run macro-code to download a second-stage implant, dubbed Rising Sun, which the hackers used to conduct reconnaissance and steal user data.The Lazarus Group, a hacker group linked to North Korea, was the prime suspect given the overlap with similar code previously used by hackers, but a connection was never confirmed.“This was a unique first experience in all my years of threat research and investigations,” said Christiaan Beek, lead scientist and senior principal engineer at McAfee, told TechCrunch in an email.“In having visibility into an adversary’s command-and-control server, we were able to uncover valuable information that lead to more clues to investigate,” he said.The move was part of an effort to better understand the threat from the nation state, which has in recent years been blamed for the 2016 Sony hack and the WannaCry ransomware outbreak in 2017, as well as more targeted attacks on global businesses.

Apex Legends, the latest hit in the battle royale genre, is undergoing with some major server issues.It is not yet clear that what caused this issue to occur but many players reported that even though the game opened still, they were unable to access any feature in the game.As players told that were able to see the initial loading screen for the title with a loading circle constantly spinning.As the loading screen ends, a message pops up stating Disconnect Persistence Read Complete for data storage Respawn failed.The error code suggests that the Respawn servers failed to connect players which resulted in long loading screens or login failure.Currently, servers are down, and no such information is provided as to until when the servers come back to life, probably it would take some time to restore the game for PC players.
A new report from the hardware security firm Eclypsium has revealed that hackers can corrupt the firmware of bare-metal cloud servers so that they can regain access to the servers after they've been released and reassigned to other customers.A bare-metal server is a physical server that is rented to one customer at a time and many companies in the cloud services industry offer these servers to their customers because of their flexibility and security benefits.Once a customer is finished with the server, it is released back to the cloud company and the provider wipes the server of any customer data so that it can make it available to others.However, in its latest experiment, Eclypsium discovered that cloud service providers are not doing enough when it comes to properly wiping base-metal servers.The team was successfully able to make modifications to a server's baseboard management controller (BMC) firmware which a potential attacker could use to access a server after it was wiped and reassigned to another customer.Last year, researchers from Eclypsium discovered vulnerabilities in the BMC firmware of Super Micro motherboards and they used this knowledge to exploit IBM's SoftLayer cloud service which uses Super Micro hardware.
“This has an interesting implication for cloud services in general…”Eclypsium, a firmware and hardware security specialist based in Portland, Oregon, says it managed to successfully implant vulnerabilities remotely into an IBM Cloud server it leased as “bare metal”.The attack meant it could have permanently crippled the server, stolen data on the physical host, or worse.Rewind: Understanding Cloud Server ProvisionWith the advent of Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), organisations can purchase computing, storage, and network resources in an elastic, on-demand model in the cloud.This is where security issues can creep in, Eclypsium claims.
More than five years have passed since researchers warned of the serious security risks that a widely used administrative tool poses to servers used for some of the most sensitive and mission-critical computing.Now, new research shows how baseboard management controllers, as the embedded hardware is called, threaten premium cloud services from IBM and possibly other providers.In 2013, researchers warned that BMCs that came preinstalled in servers from Dell, HP, and other name-brand manufacturers were so poorly secured that they gave attackers a stealthy and convenient way to take over entire fleets of servers inside datacenters.The premium service is known as bare-metal cloud computing, an option offered to customers who want to store especially sensitive data but don't want it to intermingle on the same servers other customers are using.We did notice that the additional IPMI user was removed by the reclamation process, however the BMC firmware containing the flipped bit was still present.This indicated that the servers' BMC firmware was not re-flashed during the server reclamation process.
Don't just grin and bare it: Check your provider wipes mobo before redeploymentCloud providers renting out bare-metal servers must make sure they scrub every last byte of writable storage on their boxes between deployments, infosec outfit Eclypsium has urged.Otherwise, malicious customers could stash malware in motherboard flash memory that activates when the next user of a machine powers it up.Eclypsium, we should point out, just so happens to sell firmware security solutions.The problem, explains Eclypsium, is that a miscreant could rent a bare-metal server instance from a provider, then exploit a firmware-level vulnerability, such as one in UEFI or BMC code, to gain persistence on the machine, and the ability to covertly monitor every subsequent use of that server.In other words, injecting spyware into the server's motherboard software, which runs below and out of sight of the host operating system and antivirus, so that future renters of the box will be secretly snooped on.

The vulnerability within Microsoft’s web server technology was discovered by F5 Networks engineer Gal Goldshtein.Internet Information Services (IIS) that are running on Windows servers can be manipulated to cause a 100 percent CPU usage spike according to a Microsoft Security Teams report.Yesterday Microsoft said that they are aware that malicious HTTP/2 requests sent to Windows servers running IIS can trigger the system CPU to spike to 100 percent, which can only be stopped by severing the malicious connections.Microsoft have said the issue affects IIS servers containing Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016, these servers reveal the CPU spike vulnerability when they are asked to process fraudulent HTTP/2 requests.A 100 percent CPU spike would effectively shut down any meaningful functionality on the server and is equivalent to a DDoS attack.“The HTTP/2 specification allows clients to specify any number of SETTINGS frames with any number of SETTINGS parameters.
On Feb. 20, a former employee of Beijing-based apartment rental platform Ziroom was tried at the Tongzhou District Court for illegally obtaining a large amount of personal data.The trial is ongoing, but the evidence presented so far is damning.In total, over 800,000 entries of personal information were discovered on a laptop, iPhone, and USB drive seized by authorities.Some 70,000 of those were traced to Ziroom customers, Beijing News reported (in Chinese).According to the court’s procuratorate, she joined the company in April 2017.The data theft was discovered in the first half of 2018 after Li had left the Tencent-backed enterprise.
Shared website hosting can appear to be amazing value, with feature-packed products available for just a few pounds every month.Performance will be poor as there aren't enough resources to go around, and the extra load could mean more server problems and downtime.Dedicated hosting implies that you also get far more control over how the server is configured.The best providers will even monitor your server for issues, like failed services, and can often fix them before you've realized there was a problem.The cheapest plans are relatively basic, with limited hardware, although network bandwidth got an upgrade with 1 Gbit/s.Features like SSD drives and server management (1 & 1 updates, monitors and manages the server for you) cost extra.
