How was your Halloween? Didn’t it turn into a nightmare because backups weren’t good or servers went ghost? Here at Fuga we didn’t let ourselves be distracted by ghost stories but continued with what we were doing. There is little news to report in the FRA region, but developments there are progressing smoothly. We are working on our website, the Fugue Academy and of course our platform. No big news in that area right now, but that doesn’t mean we’re standing around and looking pretty. Keep following our socials, mailings and Fun & Facts, then you will be the first to know the Fuga News!
Product catalogue on the website
The range of Fuga products and services is growing every day. And to prevent you not seeing the wood for the trees, we have now renewed our product overview page. Clearly grouped by Compute, Storage, Network, Services and Management tools. This way you can quickly see whether you might still be missing a part, whether a new product is on the way, or whether there might be a product that is interesting to investigate. We mention a few highlights and the prices per (clickable) block because we are very transparent about our prices. At Fuga Cloud, you pay per hour and only for what you need and use. And no, we are still not doing Vendor lock-in.
We do everything we can to safely store your data, but we are sure you also don’t want to leave the door wide open. So from now on it is possible to set up Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) on your account.
- Log in to your account and go to your team page. Select the “Users” tab (https://my.fuga.cloud/account/users)
- Click on the three dots to the right of the desired user and choose “Edit Profile”
- A form will now appear with your first and last name. Just above the Submit button is a switch “Enable Multi-Factor Authentication” Click it to enable it.
- Submit the form
- Next time you log in, you will be asked to connect an authenticator app (such as Google Authenticator, but choose your own preference) to secure your account. Follow this process and your account is secured with 2-Factor Authentication (2FA).
2 new tutorials again!
A lot is possible with Fuga Cloud. But we are aware not every Fuga-Member has the same knowledge. After all, you can’t know everything (or should we say “not everything yet”…). To help you get the most out of our products, we keep writing all kinds of tutorials, which you can find in our onze Fuga Academy. And so for this edition of Fun&Facts another two fresh tutorials:
How to migrate a volume from one OpenStack provider to another Learn how to migrate small (bootable) volumes from one provider to another using images.
Create a multi-attach volume with cluster-aware file-system with OpenStack CLI Learn how to set up a volume as multi-attachable within OpenStack so that you can share the data on different instances.
Have you figured out a few things yourself and do you want to help the Fuga community with your knowledge? Write a tutorial and send it to us. We will take a good look at it and if it is a good addition we will place it in the Fuga Academy. And because there’s no such thing as a free lunch, you will receive a reward from us (after placement) in the form of Fuga-swag.

25 miljoen OpenStack Compute Cores in Production
OpenStack is the open source project that gives large enterprises and public cloud providers the tools to run their own AWS-like private clouds in their data centers. It’s no secret that the OpenStack project, which now falls under the umbrella of the OpenInfra Foundation, has had its ups and downs. So it might come as a surprise to many that it’s seeing quite a bit of growth in use lately. As the Foundation previously shared, the number of total cores managed by OpenStack grew 66% over the past year.
