What about our IaaS hosting?

Yesterday, a new version of Gandi's website was activated. This update moves the payment of server resources over to our new billing system. The visible part of this is that you can now configure and purchase your server by simultaneously combining shares and optional resources.


Being on the new new billing system means that you will soon be allowed to renew all of your resources at the same time. Also, you can set them so that they all expire on the same date for example.

Here is a list of some product improvements that we will be releasing over the next 6 months:
  • The ability to take Snapshots: This is already available online for all the disks created since March 2011 (by the way, if your disk was created before this, we recommend that you migrate it to a new disk). The first feature that we are going to add will be to make this operation automated. You will therefore be able to schedule an automatic backup of your website every X days or Y hours.
  • We are then going to work on giving you the ability to purchase additional bandwidth The bandwidth of each share will be increased, and there will be a bandwidth quota added (with a high limit) along with the possibility of modifying the both parameters as an option.
  • For private networks, something that many of you have been looking forward to for a long time now, we are getting closer to providing this, though there are some problems that need to be solved first. We are currently updating our network's hardware so that we can test how it works under real conditions. We will be able to release the product once we have fixed all the stumbling blocks, and when we are pleased with the results.
  • The load balancers, which were developed a few months ago were not up to our standards. With Simple Hosting, however, some of the technology used will allow us to offer you an alternative to that.
