DCIM + 2FA - Overall Panel Solutions

Every now and then it's interesting to revisit a not-so-recent thread, particularly when it invoives a search for a piece of software or tool that could do this or that, but didn't quite come out with a positive solution. This one, started by Myles in 2022, involved a search for a more comprehensive panel, namely in terms of a 2FA protected location to access an index of a client's dedicated servers, PDU/KVM/IPMI ports, PXE, etc. The motivation was having a client with some less adept staff who would like this to be a heavily UI driven experience, and basically wants to off-load as much management/organization as possible. Myles had done a fair bit of research and came up with a list of possibilities including one that almost fit the bill, bar 1 missing feature. His opening post goes into detail about what he'd found, tried and discounted. Since then the thread has had a few updates, including as recently as this week, but there's still a need for a solution. It's an interesting read for those who manage multiple servers and need some sort of management panel. Maybe you can suggest another option that hasn't been mentioned before, or are on a similar hunt.

Google use 4 ways to track users to judge satisfaction with your website

CanSpace wasn't following the US vs Google antitrust trial too closely, but it shed some interesting news regarding Google's algorithm. Besides everything already known, it appears that Google is measuring user interactions in four ways: mouse movement, clicks, scrolls and additional searches. All this contributes to actual web rankings. This is incredibly important because Google has been quietly telling us to "focus on the user", but no one really understood what that meant. Since AI is creeping into all sorts of algorithms, particular attention needs to be paid to how your site designers build user experience into your website, focusing on authority and trust, and being as helpful and informative to users as possible, giving the information they want to know up front. This indicates the need to do more than just foundational keyword work in order to get those clicks. Google's tracking means they know when a user is happy with the site. Have you encountered this before? Do you have any tips and tricks to improve your site visitors' journey through your web pages?

News from around the hosting industry

Our Industry News section is the place to find current headlines from around the world of hosting and infrastructure, but other general interest threads pop up in other sections of the forum, especially our Web Hosting Lounge. Here we highlight just a selection of some of the interesting items from around the forum:

  • 250+ million reserved IPv4 addresses could be released - Activists are again lobbying for more than 250 million unused IPv4 addresses to be released for use, potentially tackling the IPv4 exhaustion problem. However, the proposal has been tried and failed before, and again faces formidable opposition. The unused addresses are known as the "240/4" block and comprise most of the IPv4 addresses from to – a space that encompasses upwards of 268 million addresses, or about six percent of the entire IPv4 number space. For some perspective on the magnitude, at market rates, the addresses are worth around $7 billion. All this potential sits unused because in the early days of IPv4 they were set aside for future use or experiments.
  • New German data center Europe's largest 3D-printed structure - Construction on a 3D-printed building set to be used as a data center in Germany has been completed. Work on MSP Heidelberg iT's new facility started last year using a BOD2 3D construction printer. The shell's construction is complete and the company will build out the white space and electrical room next. The data center will offer 500kW and have capacity for around 100 racks, and the facility was printed using around 450 tons of printing concrete from Heidelberg Materials.
  • RETN unveils new PoP in Poland - RETN, a major Eurasian network, announced the new Polish PoP this week, located in Gdańsk at the Artnet Data Centre with routes to Warsaw, Poznań and onwards to Berlin. This is RETN's 12th Polish PoP.
  • Data center developer Tract is expanding in Nevada - They've acquired an additional 517 acres in the Tahoe-Reno Industrial Center in Nevada adjacent to 686 acres it previously announced. The site is zoned for a wide range of pre-approved uses, including data centers. The Tahoe Reno Industrial Center is at the center of an emerging data center cluster where wholesale data center operators and self-build hyperscale cloud providers like Microsoft have recently joined the Reno ecosystem. Tract is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, with real estate holdings throughout the United States.
