Tier 3 - April Release Webinar


Published on

We are pleased to announce that several new enhancements to the Tier 3 cloud platform are now live. Effective April 27, all customers will have access to the capabilities listed below.

New Features

- Global search of platform records. The new global search feature uses a single search box to find accounts/sub-accounts, groups, servers (including "descriptions" and "custom field" text), users, networks, or Blueprints. The search will return results from within your account.

- Vancouver BC data center now online. A second Canadian data center is now available and a complimentary location to the Toronto data center. For customers with premium storage, content is replicated between Canadian sites for DR purposes.

Other Enhancements

- Platform and templates replicated across data centers. All Tier 3 operating system templates are automatically replicated to every Tier 3 data center.
View the status of your accounts (active OR disabled). Users can see all the sub-accounts for a given account, even if those sub-accounts are marked as inactive. In the next release, users will be able to also change the state of accounts and users.

- User can specify an exact number of GB to provision for a storage volume. When adding storage to a server, a customer can use either the slider (in 5GB increments) or enter in a value of GB to provision.
