Update on shared (standard) Plone hosting

After trying to upgrade a number of Plone sites from 2.0.5 to Plone 2.1.1 we've realized that it's easier for our customers if we create another shared Zope where Plone 2.1.1 is running.

This means that the existing sites will continue to run as expected, and those two wish to upgrade to Plone 2.1.1 can do so, by contacting us and asking for an account on the new shared Zope. :)

Plone upgrade postponed

Due to a number of Plone websites where the migrations have failed we're postponing the migration by at least one week. For those of you who were eager to get started with Plone 2.1 we apologize and we'll get this done as soon as possible.

New date for migration will be posted later.

Plone upgrade

We're upgrading our shared Zope from Plone 2.0.5 to Plone 2.1 on the 31st of October, at 15:00 CET.

From experience, we know that products will break after migration from 2.0.5 to 2.1 so for some of you, it would be a good idea to upgrade from Standard to Plus, so you can upgrade Plone when it suits you.

We'll do our best to make the transition go smoothly and will be spending the entire evening (and possibly night) making sure Plone sites are running as smoothly as possible, but we can't make any guarantees, so again, upgrading to Plus is a good idea, if it is critical that your site runs well at all times.

Shared Zope downtime

The shared Zope sites were out for about 5-30 minutes, as we were making changes to grow the system for new customers. We apologize for the inconvenience.

CMFBoard will be removed from shared Zope

Due to it slowing down the shared Zope, CMFBoard will be removing from shared Zope within a week. Customers that want to keep using it and want to continue hosting with us should upgrade to the Plus package. Those who don't want to continue will get a refund for the remainder of the period they've paid for.

We know this may be inconvenient for some, but we have to take the majority of customers in consideration when making these decisions.

Slow response times on shared Zope

We're experiencing slow response times on the shared Zope. We're currently looking at further options for improving the performance of the shared Zope, and will be implementing this in the coming weeks. Thank you for your patience. :)

If response times are critical to your site, we recommend upgrading to the Plus package as they tend to be more stable in terms of uptime and performance.

Cache settings for Zope

We've made some changes in how data is served from the shared Zope system to make it more stable, and this may have minor impacts on how your sites operate, if you make a lot of changes.

If you suspect there's a (http-level) caching problem with your site, let us know and we'll have a look.

Shared Zope response-times

We're still having some response-time problems with the shared Zope, and I know this can be an annoying problem. But, we'll be implementing a solution the next couple of days that should help reduce the issue.

As always we're working hard to give you a stable and reliable hosting platform, and that's something we intend to do in the future as well; however, in light of these problems with having sites on a shared Zope, it might be an idea for you to consider the Plus package instead. The Plus package is likely to provide more stability, as less products will be installed and less sites use the same Zope instance. If you want to know more about it, send me an email.

If there's anything else you're wondering about, please let us know!

Another outage

We experienced another outage today, on the shared Zope server. Our new system for managing these outages didn't catch the outage, so we're working on improving that system further and now closely monitor the shared server at all times.
