Between now and December 1st, 2013 we will be upgrading our entire cloud cluster to bring you more features, better performance and high disk I/O. This change will allow us to:
* To move everyone on the NEW TurboIO SANS (Faster and much more reliable centralized storage).
* To get everyone moved to new hardware that is faster and more reliable for the nodes that run the operating systems.
What does this mean for you and what will you need to do?
For the most part, you wont have to do anything, we are handling all of it. However if your DNS isn’t using our nameservers or not using CNAMES for your applications and/or websites. There may be some DNS changes. We will be reaching out to customers who will be required to make DNS changes through email in the next week. So look for an email. We will have new information for your DNS records at that time. Please don’t contact us until we contact you as we do not yet know the IP Addresses that you will be using for your DNS.
We expect minimal downtime for this migration. More on that will be posted on the status blog @ http://www.u7networks.com/status/ .
If you have any questions feel free to contact through the support ticket system.
We are happy to announce the launch of our new Support Center. We feel that this will greatly enhance our ability to serve our customers and respond in a more concise, timely manner. If you have questions for Support, Sales or Billing you can now login and visit http://my.u7net.com/support and submit a support ticket.

Running WordPress on our cloud infrastructure ensures speed and availability. Pricing is the same as our iWeb instances.
WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. It has many features including a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by over 14.7% of Alexa Internet’s “top 1 million” websites and as of August 2011 manages 22% of all new websites. WordPress is currently the most popular CMS in use on the Internet.
WordPress was first released on May 27, 2003, by Matt Mullenweg as a fork of b2/cafelog. As of December 2011, version 3.0 had been downloaded over 65 million times.
With this new offering we have also revamped our control panel for our iWeb instances, look forward to more enhancements as we continue to move out of our Beta offerings. Below is a screenshot of the new iWeb (and wordpress) control panels.

Starting today new instances of Bugzilla will now be launched using version 4.0.2 stable.
For those who wish to upgrade see the release notes here: http://www.bugzilla.org/releases/4.0.2/release-notes.html
This release fixes several security issues. See the Security Advisory for details.
- In addition, the following important fixes/changes have been made in this release:
- The Bug.create WebService method now throws an error if you pass a group name which doesn’t exist. In Bugzilla 4.0 and 4.0.1, this group name was silently ignored, leaving your bug unsecure if no other group applied. (Bug 653341)
- Moving several bugs at once into another product displayed the same confirmation page again and again, and changes were never committed (regressed in 4.0). (Bug 663208)
- Marking a bug as a duplicate now works in Internet Explorer 9. (Bug 656769)
- importxml.pl no longer crashes when importing keywords (regressed in 4.0). (Bug 657707)
- Data entered while reporting a new bug could be lost if you had to click the “Back” button of your web browser. (Bug 652427)
- WebServices methods will return undefined bug fields as undefined instead of as an empty string. This change is consistent with how Bugzilla 4.2 behaves. (Bug 657561)
- The XML-RPC interface now works with SOAP::Lite 0.711 and 0.712 under mod_perl. (Bug 600810)
- LWP 6.00 and newer require Perl 5.8.8 and above. When installing this module using install-module.pl on a Perl installation older than 5.8.8, LWP 5.837 will be installed instead. (Bug 655912)
- Viewing a bug report should be significantly faster when your installation has many custom fields. (Bug 634812)
