Amsterdam 2 (AMS2) live

We have launched our new region! In this mail, we will tell you about the improvements and new functionality of this region.

You can use your current account to log into the new platform. We encourage you to do so and have a look. When you log in, you will see a pop-up to inform you about the new region. When you press the button, you can access the new region within seconds.

EXPERIENCE IT YOURSELF

Cloud flavors

Compute > Instances (flavors)

Like our AMS1 region, you can launch instances in different sizes. That way you can always find the right size for your project.

Entry level Ideal for applications that do not require many resources. Starting at € 3.30 per month.

Standard Our standard instance flavors are suitable for applications that do not need much memory. Starting at € 15.00 per month.

Balanced These flavors offer more memory to host applications like blogs, web applications, testing and staging environments, and in-memory caching and databases. Starting at € 27.54 per month.

Memory Optimized These flavors offer 15GB of memory per vCPU. This makes them ideal for tasks that require more memory. Starting at € 90.00 per month.

CPU Optimized These flavors offer 1.11 vCPU per GB of memory. This makes them ideal for applications that need a lot of computing power. Starting at € 36.00 per month.

Kubernetes Cluster

Compute > Clusters (Kubernetes)

Launching a new cluster is now a piece of cake by selecting one of our tested Kubernetes versions and choosing the number of masters and worker nodes. After this your cluster should be ready in approximately 10 minutes, depending on the size of your cluster. When you need an extra node you can easily resize the cluster from the dashboard, CLI, or the API. The service itself is free, you only pay for the resources you use.

Volume Storage / block storage

Storage > Volume Storage

When you need more storage for your instance, you can add a volume. You can choose the amount of storage you need and even resize at a later time. Volume storage is stored redundant (n+2) which will protect your data in case of a hardware failure. It is still possible to create snapshots and custom images. New in AMS2 is multi-attached volumes. You can attach a volume to multiple instances. We will publish a tutorial on this soon. Volumes and images start at € 0.10 per GB per month.

Object Storage

Storage > Object Store

The AMS2 region has its own Object Store to serve static content to offload your webserver. These objects can be accessed with simple HTTP requests like ‘GET’, ‘POST’, ‘PUT’, and ‘DELETE’. You pay for the storage you use, outgoing traffic, and the number of requests. Incoming traffic is free. Storage: € 0.05 per GB per month Egress traffic: € 0.05 per GB Category A operations (PUT, LIST buckets and LIST objects): € 0.05 per 10,000 operations Category B bewerkingen (overige acties): € 0.004 per 10,000 operations

Load Balancer

Networking > Load Balancers

Our Load Balancers have been improved. You can now choose multiple protocols, use Application (layer 7) Load Balancing and you can use the TLS Certificates that you have stored in our brand new Secret Store. This will offer you high availability of your applications for € 24.95 a month. We will offer other sizes at a later date (small: €9.95/mo and large: € 49.95/mo) to improve the uptime of your application.

Networking > Static IPv4 en IPv6

To ensure an IP address (IPv4 and IPv6) will be yours even when you delete an instance, you can reserve a Floating IP. This IP will stay yours until you release it again. This way you can easily assign the IP to a new server and minimize downtime of your application. If you don’t reserve a Floating IP beforehand you will be assigned a random IP which will then be released again when you delete the instance. We are still working on Prefix Delegation for IPv6 addresses. This will allow you to reserve an IPv6 subnet, from which you can assign addresses or blocks of addresses to your instances. Public IPv4 addresses are € 1.00 per month. IPv6 addresses are free.

Services > DNS as a Service

You can now manage your own DNS domain names from Fuga Cloud with our DNS as a Service. Add your domains to Fuga Cloud and manage the records from the dashboard or the API. We now offer European resolving (€ 0.99/mo) and Global resolving (€ 4.99/mo) will be available soon. Both of these regions are accelerated by Anycast.

Services > Secret Store

We now offer a Secret Store to store all your certificates and secrets. These can then be used by other Fuga Cloud services like our before-mentioned Load Balancer. This service is free.

Waar zit jij op te wachten? Laat het ons weten!

We’re working tirelessly to add new services to Fuga Cloud, like:

  • Compute > GPU support (voor Machine Learning en AI)
  • Storage > File Store
  • Services > DBaaS

We’re also working on a service to launch a Docker container directly into Fuga Cloud. A new region in Frankfurt (FRA1) Germany is also taking shape. We would also love to hear from you which future services you would like to see in Fuga Cloud. You can reply to this email or start a conversation in our chat or by telephone.

Amsterdam 2 (AMS2) Launch

We are proud to announce our new Cloud region named AMS2. This region will launch on March 31st, 2021 at 10:00 AM. How do you get access to this new cloud region? When you are logged in on our current dashboardyou will see a pop-up telling you that you can roll out your own environment on AMS2. When you do this, you will have access to AMS2 within seconds. Your current environment on AMS1 will not be affected and you will be able to switch between both regions within the dashboard.
