RimuHosting December 2009 newsletter

This post is a copy of the newsletter just sent out to customers.

News in brief

We are now offering hosting based out of Auckland, New Zealand.


In November we launched the RimuHosting cloud server management API. Create servers, shut them down, reboot them, fetch a server status. We have written wrappers/drivers for libcloud, deltacloud and jclouds. And we have provided 'native' wrappers to the REST-ful API via python, ruby and PHP.


Over the last couple of weeks we have released Fedora 12 and Ubuntu 9.10 distro images:


64 bit flavors of most distros now available (on new orders and reinstalls).

We updated our control panel so you can select what kernel you use. And added 64 bit kernel (with or without 64 bit distros) options.


We now offer ultra-speedy Nehalem (dual and single proc) dedicated servers (in NZ, Dallas, and London). And we are using the Nehalems on our newest 72GB VPS host servers.
