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.

Happy New Year from Vultr.com

Let's start 2016 off right by introducing some free upgrades to our offerings! Here are some of the changes we're ushering in with the New Year:

More Bandwidth in Australia and Japan

We have been hard at work making our high speed low latency network even more robust. As part of this ongoing project we are excited to announce increased bandwidth plans for Sydney and Tokyo instances to match our North American and European plans. Starting on January 1st, all new and existing instances will be automatically upgraded to the new bandwidth tiers.

We’ve Added More Cores to Our 4GB and 8GB Plans

Get more processing power for free! Our 4GB compute plan core count is being doubled to 4 and our 8GB compute plan will now offer 6 cores. Have one of these instances already running in your account? Log in to your panel and restart your instance to take advantage of these added cores at no additional charge!

Start your New Year off on the right foot and launch your next project with Vultr!

Announce IP Space on the Cloud with Vultr

With our new feature, you can now announce /24 or larger prefixes on our global platform. Make your transition to the cloud easier than ever by maintaining your existing IPs and attaching them to your Vultr cloud instances!

Leveraging our worldwide footprint with locations in Europe, North America, Asia and Australia, you can also take advantage of this feature to deploy your IP space in multiple locations simultaneously. Utilizing BGP Anycast, your applications will benefit from automatic failover during outages and best path routing to the closest available region to improve end-user experience.

Interested in bringing your IP space on the Vultr cloud? Visit the Vultr BGP Feature page for more information.

Announcing Multi-User Support

Vultr account owners can now share management of account resources without sharing their master login! With our new multiple users feature, you have the ability to create new logins with limited access to portions of your Vultr account. Control and assign specific powers on your account to your team, including the ability to administer servers, deploying new instances, manage billing, open support tickets, and more.

Security is also an important focus of this new feature and for the users of our web API. As an account holder, you will no longer need to share your API key with your group - each new login will be provided an individual API key that is limited by the permissions of the team member. Team members are also able to set up individualized two-factor authentication, a security best-practice that we strongly encourage.

Get started by visiting the Settings area of your Vultr control panel. Controls for managing additional logins are located under the "Users" tab.

More features and additional permission granularity controls are coming soon so stay tuned to our news feed and follow @Vultr on Twitter!

To make your life as a techie just a little bit easier, Vultr is adding some handy web tools geared towards programmers, systems administrators, and network engineers. This collection is organized in one location on our website (known as the toolbox).

Our toolbox includes utilities such as a random password generator, a mac address calculator, and a subnet calculator. And of course, expect to see more like these as time goes on!
