We’ve been providing CoreOS images on Brightbox Cloud since back in October but we often lag behind their official releases a little. So, in the spirit of CoreOS’s own automatic update policy we now auto-import the latest image every day.

Ruby 2.1 was released on the 25th December and we’re now including it in our Ubuntu packaging project.

Ruby 2.1 brings some impressive performance improvements, due to a new generational garbage collector and an upgraded method caching system, but loads of other neat stuff like better support for profiling.

Our packages also patch a bug in rubygems 2.2.0 that causes a major performance regression when installing gems. Other than that though, the packages are stock upstream versions.

Design decisions - our Cloud IP allocation algorithm

It’s nearly four years since we began building Brightbox Cloud, so we thought we’d write a series of blog posts detailing some of the design decisions we’ve made over the years. To kick it off, I’m going to talk about how our Cloud IP address allocation policy protects our customers’ security (and the reputation of our address space).

Today, we’re pleased to be announcing the beta launch of Brightbox Cloud SQL, our new cloud database service. Cloud SQL combines the performance and security of a dedicated database server with the agility and convenience of a cloud service.

Initially, Cloud SQL supports MySQL 5.5 only, but we plan to support PostgreSQL and maybe other databases in future.
Cloud SQL is available in Brightbox Manager right now, and is completely free until 1 March 2014!

Back in February we were interviewed for the new 37signals book Remote: Office not required. Here’s the transcript of that interview for those of you interested in how Brightbox manages a fully remote team.
