New features have arrived!

Hello everybody,

Easter has passed but hopefully you wouldn't say no to one last Easter Egg full of little surprises! The new Synnefo version 0.17 has just been released and we are pretty sure you will get excited with all the new features.

Let's see what is hidden into it:

Pithos+ Web UI: rewritten from scratch, it is modern, faster and easier to use. In other words, it looks good and lets you do more. Thanks to the new, responsive layout and revised functional design, Pithos+ is now accessible and functional on touch devices. The intuitive sharing mechanism, and the ability to reassign storage containers to different projects, makes collaboration easy. Don't forget to mention the choice of themes, resumed uploads and pre-contained URLs.

Detachable Volumes: have you ever wanted to transfer your data from one VM to another? Well, now you can! Create a volume, attach it to your archipelago VM, load it with data, detach it from your VM and attach it to another VM. As simple as a USB stick... just enjoy!

VM Password Reminder: the safety and security of your resources have always been our top priority. This is the reason we used to give you just one chance to write down your new VMs password. Do you need more chances? No problem! We devised a novel mechanism for securely preserving your password over a short period of time. Now you will be able to ask for a password reminder.

As always, do not hesitate to send us your feedback!

Upgrading ~okeanos, new features coming!

Hello ~okeanos users,

We are happy to announce that on Thursday, May 12 2016 we will be doing a major upgrade to the ~okeanos service, with a new version of the Synnefo software.

The upgrade will start at 08:00 EET and we expect it to last 3 hours, until 11:00 EET.
During the upgrade Astakos, Cyclades and Pithos+ Web UIs and their APIs will be unavailable.
Your standard-storage VMs and Pithos+ files should remain unaffected. However, the disk of your archipelago VMs may freeze for a few minutes in the above timeframe.

After the upgrade, you will be able to use some really interesting new features, which we will be showing off in an upcoming blog post.

Thanks for your understanding,
the ~okeanos team

Scheduled maintenance/Upgrade operation

We'd like to inform you about scheduled maintenance/upgrade for ~okeanos service between 08:00 EET and 10:00 EET on Wednesday, April 27.

Your VMs and Pithos+ files should remain unaffected.
Maintenance is expected to cause disruptions to ~okeanos services. Astakos, Cyclades and Pithos+ Web UIs and their APIs will be unavailable for a short time during the upgrade.

No loss of connectivity is expected for the VMs.

Thanks for your understanding,
the ~okeanos team
