How to Choosing a Colocation Server Provider in Indonesia

What Should You Do Before You Search for a Colocation Server Provider?

It costs a lot to pick a provider, move in and become operational. If you make the wrong choice, the costs of moving out later will be much higher than the costs of moving in.

Before you sign a contract with a provider, you must begin with the end in mind. Here are some questions that will help you determine your colocation requirements:

What do you want to achieve? Understand not only your day-one requirements, but also what you want to achieve in the future (e.g. transitioning to the cloud, going to a high-density environment, using managed services, etc.).

What are your business and IT requirements? For example, determine if you need to replicate and/or archive your data. Do you need additional colocation data center locations for replication and data archiving?

What does your growth plan look like? Your colocation provider should help you scale in space and power, so you can move in different directions in the future.

The average colocation contract is one to five years, while a wholesale colocation contract ranges between five and 15 years. Even if you have a short term contract, you don’t want the costs, hassle and potential downtime related to changing data centers every three years. That is why it is vital to choose a provider who not only meets your current needs but who can also meet your future requirements.

Here are 10 things to look for in a data center colocation provider:

1. The power density to support both current and future technologies.

Data center power densities have been steadily increasing due to newer technologies and many clients require up to 10 kW per cabinet. However, not many colocation providers offer the power densities to support future technologies. A majority of colocation data centers were constructed prior to the density “boom” and can only support an average of 4 kW per cabinet. In order to support high-density environments vendors will distribute the load over a larger footprint or have to implement a supplemental cooling system. Both of these approaches address the power density issue, but increase the cost of the contract.

2. Flexible master service agreement (MSA) and service level agreements (SLAs).

Contracts are written to protect the provider. Be proactive in addressing contractual and SLA items that are critical to the business. Initial discussions will provide insight to vendors that are willing to include or revise verbiage to better protect the client. One crucial mistake we see is waiting until the selection of the vendor to address contractual or SLA concerns instead of including them within the search criteria.

3. Network carrier redundancy.

A corporation-owned facility is usually limited to a small number of network carriers that provide telecommunications services. Look for colocation facilities that are carrier neutral and have a variety of network carriers that can provide connectivity within the facility. Various network carrier options will allow for a competitive pricing situation to reduce costs and provide the ability to incorporate a redundant vendor network design. It is also important to understand which providers are “lit” within the building and identify others that can provide services through a connection from a carrier hotel. The carrier hotel will increase the provider options to the client, but will add costs associated with the additional cross-connect. Finally, understand the redundancy associated with the routing to and within the colocation facility.

4. High-density environments.

More floor space doesn’t equal a better data center. If you can be efficient and fit the same amount of equipment in a smaller space, you’ll reduce your operating costs. Forsythe analysis shows non-recurring costs (NRC) can be reduced by approximately $10,000. Monthly recurring costs (MRC) can be reduced by $3,000 for each cabinet consolidated.

5. The right location.

Many companies are transitioning to “lights out” facilities so they can manage everything remotely. Decide how far you want to be from your data center. Does it need to be located far away from natural disasters such as hurricanes and tornadoes? A “lights out” facility is the most risk-adverse and cost-effective option. However, the farther you are from your data center, the greater your networking costs. Choosing a data center that is close to home makes it easy to respond to issues. For fast disaster recovery, your replication data center should be located no more than 50 to 100 miles from your primary data center.

6. High levels of physical security.

Ideally, you should have multiple levels of physical security both inside and outside the data center. Before you select a colocation provider, ask what perimeter and external areas are covered by camera. Also understand vendor security procedures and if you can add your own security cameras within their space.

7. Alignment with disaster recovery and business continuity plans.

The power, cooling and networking in your replication data center should match — or be better than — what you have in your primary data center. This will help you remain up-and-running during outages. Vendors should also have technical expertise and the capabilities to support clients with the development and testing of a disaster recovery plan. Also look for a data center that has workspace for your technical team to use for disaster recovery testing and declarations. Many providers don’t have this feature or they sell the workspace to multiple clients and hope that they do not declare a disaster at once.

8. Compliance.

When it comes to compliance, many colocation providers say they offer certain Tier availability and may look like Uptime-certified data centers but they aren’t really. Be wary of false claims and verify your provider’s certification with the Uptime Institute. Also, clients should verify that colocation facility is SSAE 16 compliant and that the provider will support 3rd party audits at no additional cost.

9. Transitional services.

At a minimum, your provider should offer a comprehensive managed service portfolio, so you won’t need to dispatch your technical staff to flip a switch. Also, it is critical that your provider can evolve along with your IT and business objectives over the duration of the contract. Taking advantage of managed services will free up your team’s time to support business objectives while ensuring that your infrastructure operates smoothly.

10. Future growth.

With technology changing so rapidly, it is impossible to know where you will be in three, five or 10 years. Look for a colocation provider who allows you to expand in areas such as power and space. If you’re considering additional services, ask if your colocation provider will let you modify your master service agreement as your business changes.

Pelaksanaan Program Internship Dokter Indonesia Tujuannya untuk menerapkan kompetensi yang diperoleh selama pendidikan, secara terintegrasi, komprehensif, mandiri serta menggunakan pendekatan kedokteran keluarga dalam rangka pemahiran dan penyelarasan antara hasil pendidikan dengan praktik di lapangan.

Ketua Komite Intership Dokter Indonesia (KIDI) Prof Dr Mulyohadi Ali, dr., SpFK dihubungi Harian Terbit, belum lama ini mengatakan, mereka yang disebut sebagai peserta program Internsip, adalah dokter yang telah lulus program studi pendidikan dokter dan telah lulus uji kompetensi, namun belum mempunyai kewenangan untuk praktik mandiri.

“Jika peserta tidak mencapai kinerja selama menjalankan program internship ini, sesuai dengan Pasal 6 Peraturan KKI No.1/2010, maka dokter tersebut tidak boleh berpraktik dalam profesi dokter. Mereka harus menambah waktu internsip sampai target kinerja dicapai,” kata Prof Dr Mulyohadi Ali.

TRANSPARAN DAN DIUNDI

Sejak program ini diluncurkan bulan Maret tahun 2010, hingga awal November 2012 sebanyak 5.830 dokter baru telah mengikuti program internsip dan ditempatkan di 25 propinsi didaerah-daerah yang membutuhkan, yang memiliki sarana pelayanan kesehatan primer minimal type C dan D.

Penempatannya sendiri, dilakukan secara transparan dengan cara diundi. “Sebelum ditempatkan, ke 25 provinsi tersebut dilakukan mapping terlebih dahulu untuk dilihat skala prioritasnya mana yang lebih membutuhkan dan kekurangan tenaga kesehatan. Namun, tentunya dilihat daerah mana yang memiliki sarana pelayanan kesehatan type C dan D,” jelasnya.

Proses pengundiannya, untuk wilayah DKI Jakarta dilakukan oleh KIDI pusat, namun untuk daerah dilakukan oleh KIDI provinsi melalui supervisi dari KIDI Pusat. Sedangkan, pada tahun 2013, pemilihan tempat direncanakan melalui sistem online, sehingga bisa dilakukan lebih transparan dan terintegrasi.

“Dengan sistem online, peserta program dokter internship juga dimungkinkan untuk memilih sendiri daerah yang diminatinya. Tapi tetap mengacu pada daftar daerah yang telah ditetapkan,’ ujarnya.

Dalam praktiknya, para dokter yang baru tamat ini akan didampingi oleh seorang dokter pendamping atau supervisor. Dimana satu dokter pendamping untuk5 dokter internsip yang ditempatkan. Pembiayaannya, sepenuhnya ditanggung oleh pemerintah dalam hal ini Kementerian Kesehatan. Mulai dari akomodasi, fasilitas tempat tinggal, hingga biaya hidup setiap bulannya sebesar Rp 1,2 juta.

DIBERI INSENTIF

Tak jarang, pemerintah daerah juga memberikan intensif kepada para dokter internship tersebut. Bahkan di Provinsi Kalimantan Timur, dokter internship yang berpraktik ditawarkan untuk menjadi pegawai negeri sipil. “Begitupun didaerah lain, ada juga pemerintah daerah yang memberikan fasilitas tambahan dan intensif bagi dokter-dokter yang berpraktik diwilayahnya,” tutur dia.

Jangka waktu praktik bagi dokter intership adalah satu tahun, yaitu 8 bulan berpraktik di RS type C atau D, dan 4 bulan di Puskesmas Kabupaten/Kota. “Dokter adalah pelayanan masyarakat, bukan elite tertentu yang hanya diam dikota. Hal ini harus disadari mulai sejak mereka menekuni dunia kedokteran,” tandasnya.

 

 

Begini Cara Hacker Rusia Curi Data melalui Anti Virus Kaspersky

Hacker asal Rusia mencuri data rahasia National Security Agent (NSA) melalui salah satu agen kontraktornya. Kejadian yang diketahui berlangsung pada 2015 ini merupakan pembobolan besar di internal NSA.

Dikutip dari Wall Street Journal, Minggu (8/10/2017), pencurian data ini diduga terjadi setelah si agen NSA mentransfer data-data tersebut ke komputer miliknya.

Agen tersebut menggunakan software antivirus buatan Kaspersky, yang memungkinkan para peretas mengidentifikasi dan menargetkan data milik agen tersebut.

Tidak jelas apakah peretasan yang baru diketahui ini masih terkait Shadow Brokers atau bukan. Shadow Brokers adalah sebutan untuk rentetan kebocoran data NSA yang banyak terkait dengan pemerintahan Rusia.

Sementara itu, terkait software Kaspersky yang dicurigai sebagai ‘tokoh utama’ dalam pencurian data ini, tidak diketahui apakah Kaspersky sendiri menyadari adanya serangan ini.

Yang jelas, program antivirus ini secara rutin mengirim data telematika ke server pusatnya. Dalam kasus Kaspersky, server pusatnya berlokasi di Rusia.

Transmisi data ini dienkripsi menggunakan SSL. Namun jika pihak Rusia bisa membuka enkripsi tersebut, mereka bisa mendeteksinya tanpa diketahui Kaspersky maupun agen NSA.

Bagi Kaspersky, laporan ini membuat perusahaannya semakin dicurigai, di tengah memburuknya hubungan Amerika Serikat (AS) dan Rusia yang berdampak semakin luas.

Seperti diketahui, antivirus Kaspersky dilarang penggunaannya di Negeri Paman Sam. Pemerintahan Donald Trump telah menghapus nama Kaspersky Lab dari daftar vendor untuk pembelian perangkat teknologi yang akan digunakan oleh instansi pemerintahan.

Alasannya, dikhawatirkan produk keamanan Kapersky menjadi jalur yang digunakan Kremlin untuk masuk ke jaringan di AS.

Hal tersebut menjadi tindakan konkrit dari kecurigaan badan intelijen dan parlemen AS yang muncul sejak beberapa bulan lalu.

Mereka meyakini perusahaan antivirus yang bermarkas di Moskow itu punya hubungan erat dengan badan intelijen Rusia yang berada di balik serangan cyber ke AS.

Kesalahan pada tombol ctrl-alt-del yang tidak kita tahu

Ada beberapa kombinasi tombol keyboard yang bisa dimanfaatkan di sistem operasi Windows, di antaranya ctrl-alt-del. Namun Bill Gates menyesal telah membuat kombinasi tersebut.

Ctrl-alt-del jika ditekan bersamaan punya fungsi tertentu, misalnya bisa menginterupsi sebuah program yang hang dengan memunculan task manager. Tapi Bill menilai kombinasi itu terlalu ribet dan dia sebenarnya ingin ctrl-alt-del jadi satu tombol saja.

“Tentunya jika aku bisa melakukan perubahan kecil, aku akan membuatnya jadi tombol operasi tunggal,” kata Gates ketika ditanyai soal itu dalam konferensi baru-baru ini.

Ini bukan pertama kalinya orang terkaya dunia itu menyinggung soal ctrl-alt-del. Ia pernah membahasnya beberapa tahun lalu ketika jadi pembicara di universiats Harvard.

“Kami seharusnya membuatnya tombol tunggal. Orang di IBM yang melakukan desain keyboard tidak menginginkannya. Itu adalah sebuah kesalahan,” papar Gates.

Kombinasi ctrl-alt-del memang dibuat oleh Insinyur IBM, David Bradley. Di tahun 1990-an, cara ini menjadi terkenal jika komputer tiba-tiba mengalami freeze.

Dalam sebuah wawancara terpisah, Bradley pernah mengatakan dia tadinya ingin menggunakan Ctrl+Alt+Esc. Namun hal itu urung dilakukan karena akan membuat pengguna bingung jika diletakkan di sisi kiri.

WannaCry Hero Arrested on Kronos Malware Charges

In a stunning twist, U.S. authorities this week arrested a British cyber-researcher credited with stopping the spread of the WannaCry ransomware virus on charges he helped develop and deploy the Kronos banking trojan that attacked financial institutions around the world in 2014.

Following a two-year investigation, a federal grand jury in Wisconsin last month handed down a six-count indictment against Marcus Hutchins, a resident and citizen of the UK who operated under the name “Malwaretech,” according to U.S. Attorney Gregory Haansted, who oversees the Eastern District of Wisconsin.

Hutchins was arrested Wednesday at the McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas, where he had been attending the Def Con hacking conference. The charges include one count of conspiracy to commit computer fraud and abuse, three counts of distributing and advertising an electronic communication interception device, one count of endeavoring to intercept electronic communications, and one count of attempting to access a computer without authorization.

Origin Story

Hutchins created the Kronos malware, prosecutors have alleged.

A video showing the functionality of the Kronos banking trojan was posted to a publicly available website in July 2014, according to a copy of a sealed indictment the U.S. District Court posted July 12.

A defendant, whose name is blacked out, used the video to show how Kronos worked, the indictment says. A defendant, again with the name blacked out, offered to sell the Kronos banking trojan for US$3,000.

Defendants whose names were blacked out updated the Kronos malware early 2015, according to the indictment. In April of that year, a defendant with a name blacked out allegedly advertised the malware on the AlphaBay market forum.

In June 2015, a version of the Kronos malware was sold on the forum for $2,000 in digital currency. In July 2015, a defendant with the name blacked out offered “cryptying” services for Kronos — that is, computer code used to shield the malware from antivirus software, the indictment states.

Kronos was an ongoing threat; in late 2016, the Kelihos botnet was observed trying to load Kronos using an email phishing campaign. A Russian national, Peter Yuryevich Levashov, 36, was arrested in Barcelona this April on U.S. federal charges related to his alleged operation of Kelihos.

The Justice Department last month announced that AlphaBay, which is considered the largest criminal marketplace on the dark Web, was shut down following an international investigation. Alpha Bay had been used to sell everything from fentanyl and heroin to weapons, chemicals, stolen identification documents and hacking tools.

Authorities last month arrested Alexandre Cazes, a Canadian national living in Thailand, on charges he helped create and administer the site, but he reportedly took his own life while in Thai custody.

Arrest Fallout

Hutchins this spring was hailed as an international hero after he located the kill switch to end the WannaCry ransomware attack that had locked up thousands of computers across the globe.

However, his arrest does not appear to be directly related to WannaCry, said Mark Nunnikhoven, vice president of cloud security at Trend Micro.

The current case is particularly interesting because the charges indicate the arrest is based on the creation of Kronos, not its use, he said.

“Basically, it’s saying that the only possible use of the software was malicious,” Nunnikhoven told the E-Commerce Times.

Additional activity has been detected related to the WannaCry ransomware attack, specifically that the bitcoin wallet used in the attack had been emptied, noted James Pleger, managing director of global threat intelligence at Kudelski Security.

“This came as a bit of a surprise, considering that many criminals try to cash out as quickly as possible,” he told the E-Commerce Times.

The delay may have been related to the scrutiny investigators placed on the attack early on, Pleger said — and on a more ominous note, added that it may indicate that the same hackers could be ready for a new attack using different methods.

A spokesperson for the U.S. attorney in Wisconsin was not immediately available for comment. The FBI referred all questions on the case to the DoJ.

Moving to a new web hosting company is quite simple

As your WordPress site grows from a few visits a day to thousands of visits a month and more, the shared hosting account that provides its bandwidth, storage, and processing may be unable to keep up with the increased traffic. Either it will perform poorly for all visitors — slow page loads with frequent unresponsiveness. Or it will perform poorly during periods of peak traffic — it might stop working at all under especially heavy load. No one wants their site to collapse just when it’s at its most popular.

If a WordPress site’s hosting isn’t up to the job, there are two options. Upgrade to a more powerful hosting plan with the same hosting provider or move to a new hosting provider.

If you’re happy with your current host, upgrading is the simplest option, but if you aren’t happy, it’s time to consider making a move. Many bloggers and business site owners stick with their current hosting even when they aren’t happy with the support or the service they receive. They take the “better the devil you know” approach and assume moving to a new web hosting company is complicated. They also worry that it might hurt their SEO ranking or traffic.

In reality, moving to a new web hosting company is quite simple. First you find new hosting and migrate the site itself while the original site is still up and running. Then you change your domain records so that they point to the new site. Then you take the old site down and cancel your original hosting contract.

The only complications occur if you change the architecture of the site or the domain name as you make the change. Even that can be handled with a minimal impact, but I’ll stick to the simple case for this article.

Migrating The Site
Migrating a WordPress site is not difficult. A working WordPress site needs three things: web hosting, a WordPress installation (which is just a collection of files), and a database. Once you have a new web hosting account, you need to move the files into the root of your hosting account and import the site’s database.

If that sounds complicated, you might want to hire a WordPress professional to do it for you, but most decent web hosting companies will help you with the migration; many will do it for free.

If you want to make the move yourself, the best option is to use a plugin like All-In-One-Migration, which is capable of moving both the files and the database to your new hosting account.

All the plugin does is to copy the files to your new hosting account, export the database from the old site, and import it to the new WordPress installation. The same process can be done manually, but if you haven’t migrated a WordPress site before, I’d advise you to stick with one of the methods I’ve suggested.

Changing DNS Records
I’ve used the word “migrate,” but in reality the site has been copied. The new site works, but when users type the address into their browser or search for your site, they will end up on the old site.

To direct users to the new site, you need to change your domain name’s records so that it points to the IP of your new hosting account, rather than the old one.

There are two organizations involved in making a domain name work: the domain name registrar and the domain name host, although sometimes the same organization offers both services. The domain name registrar keeps the record of who owns the domain. The domain host manages the domain name servers that link your domain to an IP address.

When you change web hosting companies, you need to do one of the following:

Change the domain name servers that your domain registrar uses for your domain so they point to your new web hosting company’s DNS servers.
If you don’t want to use your web hosting companies name servers, change the DNS records for your domain with the DNS host you use.
In most cases, you’ll just want to visit your domain name registrar and use their interface to change the DNS server records so they point at your hosting company’s DNS servers. The domain name registrar or your web hosting company will be able to help you do this if you’re having trouble.

If you want to move your site without making any changes to its information architecture or the domain name, that’s about it. There will be no damage to your site’s search engine optimization, because from Google’s point of view, not much has changed. The content is the same, it’s accessible at the same URLs, and incoming links still work.

Don’t settle for a poor hosting experience. If you’re not happy with your hosting company, moving to a new provider is easier than you think.
