OpenBSD Now Available!



OpenBSD, the secure BSD-based UNIX-like operating system, has been added to Vultr's standard O/S options. The OpenBSD project emphasizes a comprehensive and proactive focus on security and source code auditing. Over it's 20+ years of development, OpenBSD has built a reputation as one of the most secure operating system options and many industry professionals have selected it for critical uses such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems.

As with our other operating system choices, you can deploy your high performance OpenBSD servers anywhere on our worldwide network. We've also added support for all the standard features you've come to expect from Vultr such as SSH key preloading, IPv6, custom startup scripts and more!

Share your thoughts with us about your OpenBSD server by sending us feedback on our contact page or by tweeting @Vultr !

Introducing the ISO Library



Custom ISO users now have a new option for mounting ISOs - the ISO Library! The library is curated by our experienced team of system administrators and is updated periodically. Popular Linux and BSD distros are included, making installing a custom operating system on Vultr both quick and convenient.

You can also mount these ISOs directly from your existing Vultr cloud servers. Our Vultr Docs community includes a variety of useful guides that reference Custom ISOs, such as step-by-step tutorials on using rescue images to troubleshoot or customize instances. Save time spent uploading a Custom ISO and focus on what matters most - troubleshooting and getting your cloud servers back up and running quickly!

Need an ISO that isn't in the ISO Library? You can still take advantage of our powerful Custom ISO upload system for your new deployment!

Deploy Dynamic Instances Powered By Local Metadata

Starting today, Vultr is introducing a brand new version of its Metadata API. Available for all newly deployed cloud servers, this service allows the creation of flexible deployment scripts that automatically configure instances using a locally accessible API.

Servers can now access detailed configuration information that enable intelligent initial deployment decisions, reporting of detailed health status to a central controlling cluster, and much more! A variety of data about each instance is available locally, including:

* Available Network Interfaces
* IPv4 and IPv6 Addresses
* Geographic Region Information
* Public SSH keys

For more details, please view our Metadata documentation:

Add Flexibility And Resiliency To Your Cloud With Reserved IPs!

Vultr's Reserved IPs add an array of features to make your cloud environment more robust than ever before. With this functionality, you can now allocate specific IPs to your account and move them between cloud servers or reserve them when instances are destroyed.

Improve Control - Instead of utilizing randomly assigned public addresses, you can now deploy cloud servers with designated IPs from your reserved pool. Plus, you can also terminate cloud instances that are no longer used and still keep their public IPs linked to your account.

Simplify Upgrades - Make the upgrade process on your cloud server safer and more robust -- for operating systems, applications, databases, etc -- by creating new duplicate cloud server instances and moving traffic only after the new environment is tested and confirmed production ready.

Increase Redundancy - It is true that the Vultr platform is inherently designed for stability and high uptime. You can now take your environment redundancy to the next level by creating high availability clusters utilizing standby cloud servers with IP failover, eliminating any single points of failure in your application.
