Changelog 26th April 2018

Welcome to the Cloud 66 Changelog. Please take a quick look at the latest changes that have gone out this week!

GDPR

Cloud 66 will satisfy all requirements of the GDPR, by the 25th of May. For customers who are interested, we can add a Data Processing Annex to the sales agreement/T&Cs through e-signature. We are also happy to provide detailed information, including an FAQ document or customer-specific information, upon request to privacy@cloud66.com.

Server delete (scale-down) workflow improvement

To help you control your infrastructure costs, effective immediately, we will shutdown (stop) servers when you delete them from your stack, if you have opted-in into this process. This is applicable to Maestro, Rails, and Node. The complete scale-down workflow we will perform is as follows:

  1. Shut down your server NEW
  2. Remove the server from our records (meaning server information is no longer held)
  3. Remove the physical server from your cloud within 24 hours (IF you've specified that we should do that)

This is following user feedback—keep it coming!

New PostgreSQL Slave ReSync button & UI

For customers with large databases and high database throughput, network/server operations can result in your slave database going out of sync with your master. We autodetect this and mark your slave as unhealthy; requiring resync with the master.

Until now you could only invoke this via the CX toolbelt, and the operation would block your stack (both stacks if it was inter-stack replicated), meaning you could not deploy for the duration of the operation.

Now, there is a new "ReSync Slave" button on the PostgreSQL slave server detail pages. Additionally, there is a new asynchronous operation UI that will show the progress of the operation. It's nice and generic... so we will be using it for more stuff going forward!
