It's been awhile since we've done one of these (shhh, I know! Almost 2 years...). So long, that I almost don't know how to handle myself. There's been a lot happening around the VPS.NET offices, so I thought it was absolutely necessary to quickly throw something together so none of it was missed.
Deploy and Manage Optimized Drupal
The team over at StandingCloud will be doing a webinar July 26th at 9:00am PT, titled, "Deploy and Managed Optimized Drupal on the VPS.net cloud." In this webinar we'll go over how to easily deploy and manage an optimized Drupal installation using our new Hosted Apps product, from Standing Cloud. Using the Hosted Apps you're able to easily build, test, deploy and manage your Drupal sites without any significant hassle. Once you have your application online, we've fully automated the entire management process for you -- no longer do you have to worry about scaling, backups, or upgrades. You're able to register for the Webinar at GotoMeeting.
Earlier this year we met up with the guys from PyroCMS at CMS Expo. They've put together an extraordinary CMS that is quickly growing, which features a unique user management system, with built in SEO management, powerful addons and beautiful themes. Best of all, PyroCMS is now available in the StandingCloud marketplace, allowing you to easily deploy and manage an installation. If you're looking at migrating your site to a new CMS platform, PyroCMS is one to take a look at!
Montreal, Canada Cloud VPS Options
Last week we launched our new Montreal, Canada Cloud VPS location, in our quest to expand to 21 unique locations. The new cloud is located inside the Netelligent datacenter, and is available to all of our customers. Unfortunately with slightly higher operating costs in Canada, the Montreal location does have a premium charge of $25 per node.
HostingCon/Host Me All Night Long
Yet another HostingCon has come and gone already, but many good times were had. Our friends over at Comcure, along with cPanel and SoftLayer sponsored the party, "Host Me All Night Long" and that they did. All in attendance were entertained with a comedy show by the awesome Ralphie May, who might by the funniest man on earth. We were also entertained by the band Yellow Brick Road, who I can easily call the best cover band I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. Not many people can sing like Steve Perry, but these guys did! I was amazed.
Finally, some of us from the UK2Group, were able to attend a game at Fenway park. If you haven't ever attended a game at Fenway, it's one of those at has to be on your bucket list. The amount of history alone there makes it worth it, but the guys at the Red Sox organization have it a thoroughly entertaining time. Even the members of our staff who flew in from our London office were entertained. We were able to snap a quick pic of the team in their seats... apologies for not being the most photogenic. I was not intentionally trying to give the camera the people's eye brow!
