Theese last weeks have been really exciting as we move towards a worlds class Cloud Computing service. We started off by upgrading the entire architecture and now have a faster and more reliable service. You can read more about the upgrade here: http://blog.mycitycloud.se/drift-i-molnet/upcoming-changes-in-the-city-cloud-service/
The upgrade enables us to start providing the latest OS relases and also implement a range of brand new ones. Our first priority is to have Windows 2008 R2 and Free BSD ready for you as soon as possible.
What the upgrade also means is that we are able to start providing third party applications. First up is op5 Cloud Monitor which will be available in the App Center as of NOW! You can choose to install a monitoring server just by selecting the op5 image in the App Center and have it up and running within 10 minutes. op5 can monitor both the servers that you have in City Cloud and other services outside our datacenter. op5 will offer the Cloud Monitor exclusively through City Cloud thus making it possible to buy monitoring on demand.
This is an exciting first step towards becoming the leading Cloud Computing service in Europe. op5 brings out the essence in Cloud Computing and shows the true meaning of how to run your applications in the cloud. Using City Cloud, you have your own server, running your own copy of a monitoring application and best of all, You are in charge how it´s being used.
So, If you are in need of monitoring and want to be in control of both cost and performance, check out City Cloud and the op5 Cloud Monitor. If you want to learn more about op5, visit www.op5.com and read more about their excellent services.
