It's not uncommon to run a couple of workloads on a traditional cloud provider only to get a massive invoice at the end of the month. It is frustrating to find out after you get locked in with them that you will be paying a lot more than anticipated.
One of the most impactful costs in your cloud bill is egress bandwidth — or how much traffic went out of your servers and into the internet — so we built an interactive chart to help you better calculate your bandwidth costs with different vendors.
Custom scripts help you run arbitrary commands on your server on its very first boot. With variables, you can extend these commands to use data that is not yet available when a deployment is requested.
For instance, you could write a custom script to send the hostname, IP and password of your recently deployed server to a Slack channel, or add it to your Ansible inventory, or both!
Custom scripts variables are incredibly helpful to make initial changes to your servers or making sure they check-in to your infrastructure automatically.
We are building a new dashboard experience from the ground up to better help you manage and understand your infrastructure. The new experience is a lot faster and includes some much-requested new features, such as the ability to have multiple accounts. We also think you will love the design we carefully put together for you.
All Maxihost customers can expect to see the updated dashboard over the next few months, but you can sign up for the beta right now and gain access to the new experience in only a couple of weeks.
All you have to do is fill out the form, and we will let you know as soon as the beta is available for testing. Everyone is welcome, customer or not.
We are drastically improving the way API keys are managed from the dashboard.
Starting today you can create multiple API keys for your account, give them a name and see when they were created and last used. These API keys can also be revoked, streamlining the process of rolling your keys when you need to.
You can now deploy RAID 0 or RAID 1 arrays from the dashboard and API. Supports all servers with 2 or more disks.
As we near CentOS 6 end of life in November, we are discontinuing new deployments of this Operating System from our platform.
Mist.io, an open-source multi-cloud management platform, now officially integrates with Maxihost.
With the new integration you'll be able to connect to, deploy, and manage your Maxihost servers straight from Mist.io. It's an incredible platform if you're running a hybrid cloud and want to manage everything from a single place.
To get started, sign up for an account with Mist.io and add your Maxihost credentials from the Clouds page.
Today we have quite a few direct peers and internet exchanges joining our network. Here is the list:
São Paulo: Seaborn Networks
Miami: Microsoft and Akamai
Los Angeles: Facebook, Apple, and Akamai
Los Angeles: Any2Exchange
New York: DE-CIX
Maxihost is deprecating version 1.0 of its API to make way for version 1.1.
On January 31st, sending the 1.1 version header will no longer be necessary, and all endpoints will start automatically responding on the 1.1 namespace.
If you're not sending the 1.1 header, it means you're using version 1.0. Please review your requests and check if they need to be changed.
We're excited to make ESXi 6.7 available for deployment on all servers. This is the perfect OS to virtualize your workloads. Fully installed and working in 10 minutes. ⏱
