Newsletter issue 16

It seems like it was just yesterday when we were welcoming 2015 and now we’re already on the last leg of the third quarter. Though time flies fast, it does bring progress with it and just last month, MIT announced a file system that won’t lose data even if the computer crashes.

Here at Alnitech, we’re also working hard to keep our Knowledge Base as relevant as possible and this month our latest entries include how-to articles on resizing volumes via DiskPart and doing backup configuration in the cPanel.

Let’s keep the ball rolling onto the fourth quarter. Have a productive month ahead!

MIT Builds Crash-proof Computer

August 24, 2015—MIT computer science researchers unveils a file system that is “mathematically guaranteed” not to lose files when a computer crashes. Their study is based on a process called formal verification, which involves mathematically describing the acceptable bounds of operation for a program, and then proving that the program will never go beyond those boundaries.

The team will formally present their findings in the ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles in October 2015.

More details are here.

cPanel Alnitech Backup Configuration

The Backup Configuration page of WHM management interface allows system administrators to customize their scheduled backups. Being a client of Alnitech one is advised to order our backup service (available as an addon to dedicated servers), this would allow the customer to do fast, reliable and secure backups onto another server located in the same datacenter. Optionally, off-site replication is also available.

Instructions valid for WHM 11.50 can be found here.

Resizing Volumes in Windows via DiskPart Utility

The DiskPart utility enables you to configure storage from a script, a remote session, or another command prompt. It is different from other command-line tools, as it does not operate in a single-line mode. In DiskPart, your commands are read from standard input/output (I/O) and directed to any disk, partition, or volume.

DiskPart enhances the Disk Administrator graphical user interface (GUI). Specifically, it can do a superset of actions supported by Disk Management. The C: drives of Alnitech servers has a 100GB default volume. You can use the rest of the space at your own discretion.
