It seems like just yesterday that I took over writing the newsletter for Nick. Apparently we’re already on week 3. Here in Ohio the children are heading back to school, the leaves are changing colors, and unfortunately the days just aren’t quite as long anymore. Soon enough I’ll find myself digging out of several feet of wonderful lake effect snow, wishing it was summer again. The changing seasons makes life fun though, right?
VPS.NET has partnered with JumpBox to provide their industry leading software. JumpBox allows you to easily and quickly install over 55 different open source ready to use applications, such as Nagios, phpBB & Redmine. JumpBox will be available on all future clouds. As a result of our partnership with JumpBox, Turnkey Linux will not be available on new clouds.
Recover your Deleted VPS
A new feature that we’ve recently introduced is the ability to recover deleted servers. After deleting a VPS, you now have 48 hours to “recover” the VPS before it is permanently deleted. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve had clients contact us because they mistakenly deleted the wrong VPS, so I expect this will likely be one of the most used features in the VPS.NET control panel, though I’m also sure there probably won’t be too many people who admit to using it. This new feature will be rolled out early next week, and comes at absolutely no charge to you. No resource usage, no fees - absolutely free!
SLC SAN 2.0 Updates
Last week I promised we’d have the new SAN 2.0 clouds up and running in our Salt Lake City location. They’re, unfortunately, not available yet. Not to worry - the hardware is running great, and there’s no problems there, we’re simply waiting on a few things to fall in line on the software side. We’re hoping that gets finished up soon; as soon as the clouds are deemed ready, we’ll have them made available to all of you.
VPS.NET is a proud platinum sponsor of DrupalCon, which occurs next week (August 23rd-27th). Both Nick Nelson and Ditlev Bredahl from VPS.NET will be in attendance. Since I’m not able to attend, I’m hoping there’s a few VPS.NET customers out there who will be able to keep an eye on them!
I think that’s all for us folks. Make sure to follow the VPS.NET Twitter, and keep in touch. If you do anything crazy this weekend, make sure to take some pictures and share ‘em with us!
