I’m finally getting around to expressing my concern with Russia pushing for a new World Currency. And how it relates to Russia disabeling huge portions of the World Wide Web. If you don’t know what I’m talking about visit this link at Bloomberg.com to get up to speed.
In the future; Russia responsible for the largest terrorist attack ever recorded.
This may fly over the heads of some of the less technically oriented people who read it but the overall tone and concept should very digestible and should send a shiver down your back. I encourage all of you to visit the links in this article as they contain information which is an extension of this article.
With recent world economic, cultural events and my heavy interest in web based server applications and hosting control panels I came to the conclusion that Russia could, with a few keystrokes, disable or turn off an enormous percentage of the World Wide Web.
This latest cyber attack drives home the need for using domestic server management applications.
Let’s face it. Russia and the USA have had issues with each other for a very long time. With this new push for a World Currency as it was unveiled at the G8 summit, my concern that Russia may flex their eMuscle.
How could they do this? It could be done with a simple flick of a switch of licensing servers which hand out updates and license keys for virtualization software and some of the most widely used server control panel software. This has happened to me before. They turned off their licensing server and they locked out everyone who was using their software from being able to manage or administer their server cluster.
Over the past decade this company has been buying up as many of the server solutions as they could. Eagerly re-writing or integrating their licensing modules into these newly acquired applications. The sale that hit closest to home for me was the purchase of HSphere a product of PSoft formerly owned by Comodo.
The Russian company I’m talking about I none other than Parallels. Based in Moscow Russia, Parallels is a worldwide leader in virtualization and automation software that optimizes computing for consumers, businesses, and service providers across all major hardware, operating system, and virtualization platforms.
And make no mistake; China is heavily involved with pushing this new World Currency as they hold the largest investment in the US currency market.
We have since moved away from an overseas server cluster application solution to a domestic product. We have been quite happy with it and do not foresee any issues with our server cluster going dark because of some world political crisis.

|Medvedev Shows Off Sample Coin of New ‘World Currency’ at G-8
By Lyubov ProninaJuly 10 (Bloomberg) — Russian President Dmitry Medvedev illustrated his call for a supranational currency to replace the dollar by pulling from his pocket a sample coin of a “united future world currency.”
“Here it is,” Medvedev told reporters today in L’Aquila, Italy, after a summit of the Group of Eight nations. “You can see it and touch it.”
The coin, which bears the words “unity in diversity,” was minted in Belgium and presented to the heads of G-8 delegations, Medvedev said.
The question of a supranational currency “concerns everyone now, even the mints,” Medvedev said. The test coin “means they’re getting ready. I think it’s a good sign that we understand how interdependent we are.”
Medvedev has repeatedly called for creating a mix of regional reserve currencies as part of the drive to address the global financial crisis, while questioning the U.S. dollar’s future as a global reserve currency. Russia’s proposals for the G-20 meeting in London in April included the creation of a supranational currency.
