Ubunteros, Ubunteros, Ubunteros! (jumping up and down frantically)
We just released v1.0 of the TurnKey Hub, a free web service that
integrates the Ubuntu-based TurnKey Linux library with the Amazon Web
Services cloud. The Hub powers two tightly integrated services:
1) TurnKey Cloud Servers: allows you to rapidly explore and deploy
TurnKey's 45+ free server apps in the Amazon EC2 cloud. No extra
software or hardware required, just a browser.
2) TurnKey Backup and Migration: provides secure and easy server backups
to Amazon S3. Backups can be automatically restored, which makes it
easy to deploy a development server into production or test backups
in the cloud.
* The Hub is officially out of private beta: The registration is now
open to the public. No invitation requests required.
* User interface improvements including a more refined look and feel, a
new start wizard to help get new users going, and a new dashboard.
* We now try harder to explain to new visitors how the Hub works and
what it's good for.
* OpenID support let's you register and login to the Hub more easily
using an existing identity (e.g., Google, Yahoo), without having to
remember another username/password.
* Full support for the latest TurnKey Linux 11 release.
* Support for basic pre-launch cloud server configuration. This means
you don't have to worry about changing default passwords.
* Configurable TKLBAM data retention: let's you limit how many full
backups you want around.
* Many performance optimizations, bugfixes, and stability improvement.
* Better internationalization support.
