eSecureData – The hosting that you can trust

I was trying to find a good hosting that I can trust for a client of mine. The project involves a lot of transactions on the server so it needs to be fast, like really fast. One of things that can speed up transactions or processes on servers are running on solid state drives or commonly known as SSD. Prices of SSD is pretty high these days and not much hosting really invested in SSDs unless they’re really serious about performances of their servers.

I’ve done some comparison on the internet and found an interesting article on cloud vs dedicated servers comparison. The article shows how dedicated server’s performance stacked up against cloud based solution. That’s where I found out about eSecureData hosting. Apart from dedicated servers, they also offering dedicated based solutions and as well as virtual servers.

With dedicated servers, you basically control a system of your own on the internet. You decide on how to manage your resources or how many servers you want to install on it. Basically there’s no limit on the resources except if it’s reaching the limitations of the server itself, not some other restrictions that was imposed by your hosting provider. Let me tell you a secret – running web based application on nginx based server coupled with php5-fpm & mysql on Ubuntu based installation is awesome. If you want to tweak it a little bit more, play around with memcached or varnish. You won’t be able to get to play around with this kind of things on your shared servers, you typically need access to virtual servers or dedicated servers in order to be able to do to that.

My advise is, if you want to get serious about your blogs or websites, you need to look into dedicated servers solution. Forget all the shared hosting out there. Those are for beginners. If you want to be really in control or make the push to the next level, you really need to get a dedicated server to weather the influx of traffic that is coming your way.

GE and Hitachi Team Up to Produce Cleaner Nuclear Energy

Nuclear power has one drawback: what to do with the spent fuel once it’s done its job. Nuclear power is safe, otherwise, and it has the lowest carbon footprint, so we need to continue to figure out how to maximize nuclear power. If we can solve this one dilemma, we have a perfect power source.

 General Electric and Hitachi teamed up recently to pool their nuclear power resources. Their goal? To find a solution to the spent fuel problem and to support advanced reactor technology development. They are in the midst of a new project called PRISM, which is a sodium-cooled fast reactor. It is not in development as of now, but this proposed reactor can consume spent fuel and unused plutonium to produce low-carbon, clean power. GE and Hitachi claim that initial testing shows that PRISM could lower the volume of used nuclear fuel by a whopping 96 percent while simultaneously supplying 10 percent of the electricity needed by the United States.

 Getting the Risks Assessed

To boost this project to the top of the priority pile, the United States Department of Energy has invested heavily. The biggest plus of the DOE’s involvement, beyond the multimillion-dollar investment, is the fact that the project will be used to update PRISM’s safety assessment with Argonne National Laboratory. This is important because the last safety assessment occurred in the 1990s, after the Three Mile Island incident in 1979 and the meltdown in Chernobyl in 1986.

Also, the PRISM project is a brand new methodology, so there are no existing risk assessment strategies that can properly predict how the systems will work together. With a new safety assessment in hand, researchers and engineers will have the tools they need to ensure the safety of the project moving forward.

When working with a new reactor design, the review process can take upward of 15 years, possibly longer. Since the main focus for nuclear projects is safety, having a working assessment method is essential. The remaining factors—environmental impact, efficiency and economics—all have their place, but safety is the chief concern.

 PRISM’s Impact

Since its developers believe that PRISM has the capability to completely change the face of nuclear power in the future, the DOE teaming up with General Electric and Hitachi is an important step. Outside investors have proof from the DOE investment that the project is being taken very seriously as a reliable, safe method for producing power. Since the reactor has the added benefit of consuming used nuclear waste, this is something that could change how the world reacts to and treats nuclear power.

The reactor will take at least another decade before it becomes available for commercial use, so investors should not regard the project as a “get rich quick” addition to their portfolio. It can be, however, a viable investment that can grow by leaps and bounds once it is in use.
