Hot on the heels of massively speeding up Cloud Container jobs with some Redis improvements back in May we've found another optimisation. This time we've sped up the authentication process that confirms whether a job is allowed to take place, which speeds up every action (think creating a container or deleting a database) by a further ~2 seconds. A smaller win this time, but each improvement adds up to an even more responsive platform.
When opening a ticket with us via the Support Centre in the Control Panel (which is always better than emailing us directly) it now provides us more information about what you're requesting help with. This will allow us to provide faster and hopefully better support and process that information to do smart things.
Underneath the covers of the Cloud Container platform we've greatly improved the service discovery capabilities for new types of containers. This means you can expect to see more Service and Integrated containers, that have more capabilities out of the box.
We've fixed an issue that was preventing Private Cloud customers upgrading disk space on their Virtual Servers and Cloud Containers running on private hardware nodes via the Control Panel or API.
In some rare edge cases involving malformed
docker-compose files, Cloud Container Caching would randomly turn on. And while this is a great feature that many people should use, it will now only turn on when requested.
We're not going back to 2004, sorry. But moving forward we'll be posting pertinent updates here to highlight new features, changes and provide more context around maintenance windows.
