CPU upgrade OpenStack Cloud Servers

At the lanch of CloudVPS Compute on the 19th of May 2014 the initial prices and cloud server sizes (flavors) were estimated on a conservative basis. Now we have actual usage data we can provide our customers with more capacity or lower prices. Today we have increased the CPU capacity of most flavors on offer. In the near future you can expect us to lower the cost of extra volumes.

See below an overview of the upgrades. The smallest flavors are receiving the largest relative upgrades because we want to stimulate our customers to spread out workloads over multiple smaller instances.

If you have an existing cloud server that still has the previous capacities then you can activate the extra CPU capacity by rebooting it.

There are also a large number of functional improvements in the works. Within a few weeks we will start to offer 'Shelving' via the Skyline interface. This means you can take cloud servers offline and only pay for the storage of the hard disk. Besides this we are currently testing a new backup script that stores backups in the CloudVPS Object Store This s a cheap alternative for a backup account that automatically stores backup data over two datacenters. Next week the object store itself will get a software upgrade that will add a lot of extra functionality.
