First of all, the always­da­ta team joins me in wish­ing you a… nor­mal year? 😊 In these strange times, we are of course choos­ing to pri­or­i­tize health in order to sup­port you.

To make it short but sweet, it’s time to look back (2021), and to look for­ward (2022) to every­thing that might inter­est you, includ­ing the changel­og and the roadmap for our infra­struc­ture and its functions.

What happened in 2021

  • Introduction of ser­vices facil­i­tat­ing the imple­men­ta­tion of pro­grams super­vised around the clock, such as Celery, Redis, mem­cached, Mattermost, Datadog, etc.
  • Docker: now sup­port­ed if you have a Private Cloud
  • HTTP/2: deploy­ment on all of our infra­struc­ture (Public Cloud, Private Clouds)
  • Emails :
    • Incoming: pos­si­bil­i­ty of cre­at­ing a whitelist in order to over­ride our antispam
    • Outgoing: his­to­ry avail­able on the admin­is­tra­tion interface
  • SSL Certificates: man­age­ment of SAN cer­tifi­cates (mul­tido­main)
  • Languages: NET now offi­cial­ly supported
  • Domains: auto­mat­ic renew­al now avail­able with bank account (SEPA)
  • Quotas: for the Private Cloud, the account lim­its can be defined for the serv­er or for prod­ucts (for resellers)
  • Offers :
    • sim­pli­fi­ca­tion of our site so as to present the Public Cloud and Private Cloud more clearly
    • removal of the Catalyst term that des­ig­nat­ed our Private Cloud offer

2022: what we can do together

  • Recruitment: “Byte sculp­tor” — Linux + Python — Remote working
  • Monitoring: addi­tion of con­sump­tion graphs (CPU, RAM, disk, etc.) for your servers and your accounts
  • Statistics: replace­ment of the shared plat­form Matomo for a home tool, so as to pro­vide you with sim­ple sta­tis­tics, in real time, about the traf­fic to your sites. The cur­rent man­age­ment leads to cum­ber­some pro­cess­ing of HTTP logs and a 48-hour delay in the pro­vi­sion of sta­tis­tics. However, Matomo can still be used and remains avail­able (and can be installed in 2 clicks) in our Marketplace.
  • External back­ups: in addi­tion to the auto­mat­ic dai­ly back­ups (over 30 days) includ­ed in all of our offers, it will soon be pos­si­ble to con­fig­ure exter­nal back­ups with the sys­tem of your choos­ing (S3 compatible)
  • HTTP/3: the recent redesign of our front end HTTP proxy to man­age HTTP/2 means that we are help­ing you use the imple­men­ta­tion of this pro­to­col in a more effi­cient way this year.

Support us ❤️

As always, we are avail­able to assist you with your projects. Please don’t hes­i­tate to con­tact us; we would be delight­ed to give you some guidance.

Also, don’t hes­i­tate to give us a lit­tle help­ing hand: there are numer­ous ways to do this, from leav­ing us a com­ment to sim­ply spread­ing the word about us 😉

All the best for the new year!
