Welcome to the Cloud 66 Changelog. Please take a quick look at the latest changes that have gone out this week!
MySQL 8.0 Support
Good news! We now support MySQL 8.0 by default on new installations of MySQL! Note that this includes support for Percona as a database engine too. If you want to use Percona, see the manifest documentation for how to configure Percona as your db engine.
MySQL 8.0 brings a number of performance enhancements over 5.7, and is certainly a recommended upgrade if you're on the fence! Go forth and query!
We are very excited to introduce Konfig, a new open source project created and maintained by Cloud 66.
Konfig is a Kubernetes friendly Rails configuration gem. It helps to simplify and standardize the way you can retrieve multiple secrets and configurations from secure storage and makes them available to your applications without requiring any application level changes. Read more.
New Packet Servers/Regions
