EuroDNS, Digiweb and Instra, Partner as Resellers for Mega

Mega partners with three globally respected domain name registrars, EuroDNS, Digiweb and Instra, to offer secure, encrypted file sharing in a cloud-based storage repository.

AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Jan. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The newly created company, Mega, will launch amidst great fanfare on January 19, 2013, under the maxim, "We Promise We Deliver – Bigger . Better . Faster . Stronger . Safer".  As leading domain name registrars, EuroDNS, Digiweb and Instra have been welcomed on board as resellers and jointly, they will provide expert product advice, technical support, marketing and billing support.

The description on the Mega website reads, "In the past, securely storing and transferring confidential information required the installation of dedicated software." It continues, "The new Mega encrypts your data transparently in your browser, on the fly. You hold the keys to what you store in the cloud, not us." As trusted pioneers in their field, this newly formed partnership enables EuroDNS, Digiweb and Instra to offer their respective customers a secure cloud backup and file storage solution; the platform is fast and cost effective, with the high level of security achieved by utilizing an encryption generator to create a unique alpha-numeric code for the unlocking of files.

Mega Launch

Tony Lentino, Instra Founder and Mega CEO and Director, has been vocal in his continued support of Mega and the development of this revolutionary new internet service – a cloud storage provider designed to set a new benchmark in Internet privacy." Following the launch of the company in New Zealand, Instra will be contributing to operations and providing full frontline technical support.

EuroDNS Chairman, Xavier Buck instigated initial discussions with Mega and proposed EuroDNS as a reseller; striving to provide its customers the best services, Xavier saw this as an opportunity to offer a secure environment for the storage of files using the latest cloud computing technology. He says, "We are giving our customers the competitive edge; this state-of-the art cloud-based storage platform has unprecedented encryption security so users can store files safe in the knowledge that access is granted by them alone."

The Mega launch takes place in New Zealand, January 19 (EST/GMT) – January 20 (NZDT).

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data profession...

What does it look like when you have access to cloud infrastructure and platform under the same roof? Let’s talk about the different layers of Technology as a Service: who cares, what runs where, and how does it all fit together.

Most organizations prioritize data security only after their data has already been compromised. Proactive prevention is important, but how can you accomplish that on a small budget? Learn how the cloud, combined with a defense and in-depth approach, creates efficiencies by transferring and assigning risk. Security requires a multi-defense approach, and an in-house team may only be able to cherry pick from the essential components. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Vlad Friedman, CEO/Founder o...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist.

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
