Besides our name change we are able to present you with several improvements. We can now provision most Linux configurations immediately after ordering. Soon this will be the case for Windows virtual servers as well. Moreover, as from today, all virtual server related contracts can be changed on a daily basis instead of monthly. We also want to inform you about upcoming improvements in our service.
We can currently provision most Linux virtual servers instantly. This used to be a process that required manual actions. You can use instant provisioning if you pay your first invoice right away via iDEAL, credit card or PayPal. If you regularly need new virtual servers you can also use instant provisioning without paying right away. This can be requested with a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The only Linux virtual servers that still have to be provisioned manually are Astaro Firewall virtual servers and we are working on that. We will be able to instantly provision Windows virtual servers in the near future.
You can now make daily changes to the configuration of your virtual servers. We have been using monthly contracts in the past but we like to facilitate the flexible use of our cloud. You will continue to pay your invoice on a monthly basis but if you cancel or downgrade before the pre-paid period is over you will get a pro-rata addition to your discount balance. This will automatically be deducted from your next invoices.
In the pipeline
You can expect the following improvements from us shortly:
- Only receive invoices at the start of every month.
- Automatic provisioning of Windows virtual servers.
- An OpenApp firewall and load balancing image.
- SSD caching for our Linux clusters.
