Celebrating winter time with firecrackers

Dec 12, 2022

Our final update this year was just being released and includes the switch from regular linux containers to Firecracker virtual machines. All application and database instances are now spawned as completely isolated KVM VMs. This further enhances the security of our platform as a whole and allowed us to revisit the deployment phase of applications. We took the time to not only switch to Firecracker but also optimize the deployment process itself, which means deployments should now be around 20 % faster on average.

Price adjustment 2022/2023

Nov 28, 2022

Due to to drastic increases within the energy sector and being in an industry where we are directly impacted by that we have to increase our pricing by 20% starting from the 1st of January 2023 for existing customers and effective immeadate for new customers. We have already updated our pricing page to reflect those changes and are very sorry for that. Our electricity prices have basically more than doubled and we tried as hard as we could to keep a cost-effective pricing. If you are an existing customer and do not agree to those new prices please feel to cancel your services with us in time to not be impacted.

New Git integrations

Oct 25, 2022

We were already compatible with Github (Cloud), GitLab (Cloud), Bitbucket and Gitea. We now added support for Github Enterprise, GitLab self-hosted as well as Gogs and with this update we finally integrated all of our planned Git integrations. We are happy to release this today for selected customers as a private beta and for everyone later this year.

Data transfer price reduction

Sep 27, 2022

Thanks to our growth and steady increase in network capacity we are able to pass on a price reduction for data transfer. Specifically that means that we will cut our data transfer pricing in half, before the change we charged 0,02 € per GB for the first 10 TB. After the change we will charge 0,01 €. For the next 100 TB the new pricing is at 0,005 € per GB and everything above is at 0,0025 € per GB which equals to a per-TB price of 2,50 €. The reduction will be visible on your next invoice and we will reduce the price for traffic generated this month.

Nodion launches revamped platform

Sep 13, 2022

Over the past few weeks we were busy building a revamped experience for your applications. We added support for Cloud Native Buildpacks as well as Docker and battle-tested those features closely with some of our customers. After ironing out the last few things we are happy to release this update today.

At this point we support several Buildpack Builders, like Paketo Buildpacks, Google Cloud Buildpacks as well as Heroku Buildpacks to get you up and running quickly. We are continuing our effort to have our own Nodion Builder which perfectly integrates in our platform down the road.

Please check out our Docs to learn more about Buildpacks and Docker.
