The Cloud Failed. "I came to bury it, not praise it." The solution to hacking and ransomware is - Virtualization and Hardware Based clustering.

The Cloud FAILED and is now an Obsolete Architecture.    You can quote me on that if you like:  Todd W. Byars,  July 1, 2021

All Clouds should be replaced immediately with a hardware based solutions and FULL Virtualization.   Modern, real time, incremental backups are recommended too.

How to Implement a Switch from Clouds to Hardware Clusters running full Virtualization:

  • Create Transition Plan to move from Clouds to Hardware Clusters.    VMware is our primary recommendation.  VMware in Command Line Interface, CLI, without all the GUI controls, gauges and services.
  • Select Micro-ITX or smaller motherboard computers that run cool or even fanlessly. Select Linux Load (preferred) or Windows Load or Other Load Procedure
  • Build Hardware, Setup and Test with Dummy Loads and Dummy Database.  After burn in and load testing run your pentesting and QA
  • Migrate Data to new Hardware Based Clustering.
  • Test, Run Live, Stress Test, PenTest and verify those backups.
  • Turn Clouds Off.

This problem is LARGE and GLOBAL.  So, The Computer Dudes, Inc and I, once again, GIVE you the procedure to use and share.   

It is for everyone, everywhere, including our competition who we consider as brothers and sisters in IT rather than competition.  So PLEASE SHARE!  

Who's your pal?  ;)  Todd

Computer Dudes - Stand Down for 30 Days, Large Contract for Security Products Pending

Continue All Projects.   Continue all Contracts.  Check on your clients. Verify Backups.  

No new clients for 30 days as Enterprise Level - International Security Group considers security product purchase and production.

We will continue to post on our line of Monolithic Solar Supercomputers, which are Polymorphic.    The Computer Dudes, Inc are still on track to the worlds first outdoor
off grid Data Center made of Granite Monoliths, requiring no wired connections that is sensor platform or public information kiosk friendly.

The primary benefit of our Solar One Monolith system is No Data Center Cost, No Electric Bill, No Air Conditioners, no hurricane proof buildings, no
need for huge backup generators with thousands of gallons of fuel. #solaronemonolith on LinkedIn 

That and it is designed to last 100 year with spare parts which are modular and preprogrammed for each client.

The Computer Dudes offer our solution to the wave of Hacking and Ransomware hitting the United States and World

Here at Computer Dudes we believe everyone is in this together.    That it is good people and good corporations vs bad people and bad corporations.

We believe all Computer Techs, Architects, Engineers, Server Techs, Security Companies and even other Companies in any of these fields NOT to be our 
competition, but as our Brothers and Sisters. In that spirit, I give to your our current procedures for cleaning a home or office that has been hacked.

Read, Enjoy and PLEASE SHARE.   This is for computer users, phone users, techs and families too.   Print out a copy if you want.

Computer Dudes Standard House/Office Sweep with Data Capture and Reset of All Devices.

Procedure: 

  • Once a site or client has been hacked, enter the location and do a full scan of all Wi-Fi Signals, Sources, IP Numbers, Routers, Network and Devices.   (software Wireshark, Wi-Fi Analyzer App on Phone)
  • After data is recorded and your paperwork/report has been started, turn off all Routers, Devices, Phones, TVs and everything else that uses the network or Wi-Fi or Bluetooth. Repeat Scans. Locate items and turn them OFF.
    Repeat Scans until everything is clear. Make your notes.
  • Setup laptop for Nmap capture. Reactivate client's Main Router. Capture for 30 minutes.
  • Look at your data for abnormalities, strange IPs, scripts, hack attempts and signals from any hacker attempting to reconnect to the hacked devices, their IP, location, time and ISP. Copy all reports and data and submit to law enforcement.
  • Factory reset EVERY device in the house. Then, do Firmware Upgrades and test. Have the client set much longer and stronger passwords and remind them to change those from time to time and NOT to share them.
  • File Report and/or Invoice.   Have your people contact the ISP where the hacker accessed and get them cut off.   Block all IP's from the hackers or even by region.
  • Train Client on Basic Safety.
  • Present Client with Final Reports and/or Invoices.
  • Clean and Reset Laptop You Used to Clean Network and Capture Data so it is ready for the next job. 

This is our Standard Operating Procedure for June 2021.

Download Link for Raspberry Pi OS 64 Bit Here: https://downloads.raspberrypi.org/raspios_arm64/images/raspios_arm64-2021-11-08/

The Raspberry Pi Imager version 1.6.2 supports a Ubuntu 64 Bit version you may select in the Operating System window too.

Make a note of it. :)T

AARM64 / AArch64 boosts the Raspberry Pi 4B series ultra-fast, ultra-portable, and ultralowpower consumption.
We may offer a line of AARM64 based workstations and server that run off a phone battery pack or portable solar panel.
It runs on a 5 V USB C type power connector, allowing its use anywhere for long periods of time. :)T

Our latest Data Center design for Indoor Data Centers looks like a giant box of colored pencils or a rack of test tubes with tapered angular tops.

The rest of the design is modular including the power, fiber, copper and wifi hookups.

This form uses the shape of the land and the recapture of waste heat to achieve maximum efficiency.

Maximum efficiency = FAR LESS power use than the competition regardless of computer architecture, design and function.

These are designs for an Enterprise Level Data Center the Size of a small factory to larger than a football stadium - and its all modular, including the building.

As our motto says and has said since 1997 "Nothing is Impossible."

One Mile WiFi extension kits - Off the Shelf Kit.

We do custom WiFi Extensions and Networks, including off grid networking, wifi, and repeaters.

https://simplewifi.com/products/wifi-repeater

This is not our product but is one we can use with our Monolithic Supercomputer or Large Campus Type corporate, government or university setups.

We can put data on just about any carrier wave too, regardless of frequency and with the correct antenna types. - Thomas Riker, Engineer, SE United States.

Research Group 31A created.
This group will work on an Astogation and Navigation version of the RPI 4Bs. This will be for spacecraft and aerospace mostly. They can also be used as backup computers if the aircraft or computers all fail or lose power.

Want to join the group and work with me? Just let me know. Thanks - Todd

Research Group 16C - Reports "low energy plasma" electricity transfer test set 2, is complete, and shows superconductor properties exist in this type and level of energy transfer. Excellent work!

This project is a subset of: ITER, the International Fusion Project - superconductor options and research, for Tokamak based fusion. :)T

One of our R&D groups has ordered the motherboards for the Gordo-4I series. 4, Intel Motherboards heavy with memory per computer core for the 2022 market.

Lastly we may have a new manfacturer for "The Cage", which will allow for mass production.

Both work with the Gordo Scalable Core System and have "outdoor solar powered monolithic" as a form option. :)T

Some of the Dudes came by on today, Saturday and we put Monolith SN 007 in the Ground and moved the Black Monolith to the center position in our development and production outdoor data center.

The Black Monolith is a 2022 or 2023 product, it generates electricity with special panels and airflow setup.

It is our Off Grid Data Center BACKUP power system with a wire to each Monolith which can recharge critically low batteries.

Each Monolith has its own Battery and can run for 10 days or more of its battery. The Backup Power Monolith will run the whole outdoor data center for 2 or more days.

Everything has automated sensors and switches that transfer the power automatically or that we can access remotely to transfer power or change #solaronemonolith configuration and function.
Thanks Computer Dudes hope you enjoy the rest of your Saturday. :)T

Gordo-8 Scalable Computer Core build and setup video posted under Todd W Byars LinkedIn profile.
It included a warning to those who wish to copy our work but we like the idea of others making their own versions, and home versions, and van versions, and office versions.
Or its least expensive to just buy one of ours because its configured and loaded to your specs AND we support our products.

Cool, huh? :)T
