We have not been idle this past month and therefore have plenty of news to tell you. If you have additional questions, you can always open a chat on our website or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. At that email address we would also like to receive your wishes and tips for manuals, content or functionalities that you have on your wish list.
Fastest storage now scales with our compute flavors
Our flavors on AMS2 have been updated. We now let the ephemeral disk size grow in proportion to the memory and cpu. This gives you more freedom to choose the right ephemeral storage. If you want to go for speed, ephemeral is the right choice! Doesn’t your instance yet have the new size? Stop / start your instance and make use of this extra space now.
More insight into what to expect in terms of storage and network
It is now possible to view the expected performance, when choosing a compute flavor. You can compare the flavors in terms of maximum IOPS and average network traffic to help you make an even better choice.
Only grant access to your data from a certain IP
In most cases, the data in the Object Store is highly confidential. We are therefore often asked how to grant access so data can be partially used. A nice solution for this is to make a container / bucket only accessible from an IP, determined by yourself. We have made a tutorial for this. Would you like to have this functionality also available in the dashboard? Let us know*.
What exactly is GAIA-X?
Today, the Cloud can no longer be ignored in our lives. Whether it concerns online services to arrange your banking affairs, online shopping, email, file storage or social media, almost everything goes via the Cloud. And thanks to that Cloud, it was also possible that we could all work from home during the lock-down. But the largest providers of those Cloud environments are in America and China. Time for a European alternative that seamlessly complies with the GDPR!
Interview with Cathy
As of May 1, the Fuga team has been supplemented with Cathy. Not as a techie, but as a webmaster and marketer. She’s full of ideas that you will hopefully enjoy. You can get to know her a little through reading an interview with her from our Cyso group colleagues.
*of course we want to offer all functionalities and services that provide a complete cloud experience. But choices have to be made in which order we will offer them. By letting us know what you are waiting for, we can ensure that you see “your” functionality delivered quickly. Let us know via chat or send an email to email@example.com
