We have released the much requested option to select a different OS when reinstalling a single server or multiple servers when using the bulk action.
As our hardware diversity grew, and we introduce new generations of machines, we found that our lovingly simple “Type X” naming convention wasn’t sustainable. Today we’ve updated our portal and API to reflect our new naming convention.
We've rolled out an update that allows you to view and manage your Reserved Hardware via our customer portal or API. You'll find the shiny new Reserved Hardware page in the settings area of your Organization.
Today we've released a major update to how we manage (and allow you to manage) operating systems on Packet. The new approach leverages GitHub for transparency of all Operating System changes, and provides the ability to "pin" operating systems where you want them, as well as push your own images more easily.
Global Anycast IPs are public IPv4 addresses that are pulled from Packet-owned IP space and announced in all of our core facilities (edge sites coming soon). This allows you to perform Anycast without having to go through the effort of registering your own ASN and buying public IPv4 space yourself.
Backend transfer is one of our newer features that allows your servers to communicate with each other within a single facility, as well as between Packet facilities— even across the globe— using private RFC1918 address space. Read here for further release notes.
