Henry Wadsworth Longfellow once said "Sometimes we may learn more from a man's errors, than from his virtues."
I guess we can adapt that quote to the fact these days we learn more from when the systems fail, than when they are working fine .. such was the case today.
We had done some tests on the VPS Cloud self healing measure by shutting down a Hypervisor's services, and always, the VPS nodes residing there, would automatically boot up on a different one in the Cloud ... always below 40 seconds (yes, 40 seconds)... but we decided that was no fun, it was time to go to the datacenter and pull some cables ... yes .. I love my job
After months of planning, we are finally in the homestretch towards releasing our (until now, Uber-secret) VPS.net Cloud.
So as such, time has come to start a blog, to keep everybody informed on the latest and greatest features we are working on for the VPS Cloud, as such, during the upcoming days and weeks, we will post details on the new website, the Cloud features, the user interface, and much more.
VPS.net is a new brand by that great hosting outfit, the UK2 Group, owners of 10TB, UK2.NET, Midphase, etc ..
So keep checking this page every day (or even several times a day, things are moving fast), we expect to release VPS.net LIVE on January 31st, but will be looking for beta testers in the upcoming few weeks
