MyUKFast Updates: October

26 October 2020 by Laura Valentine

October has been another busy month at UKFast and, along with carrying out routine bug fixes to keep our existing services up to date, our teams have made some important updates to MyUKFastIn a continuous effort to improve the platform from client feedback, here’s what we’ve been up to this month: 

Migration to eCloud® MSC 

Over the next few months, we’ll be migrating MyUKFast to our eCloud® metro storage cluster (MSC) platform to make it faster and more robust. With high availability, the MSC platform will make our services more resilient, further improving customer experience. This is part of an ongoing effort to dogfood our own tech, enabling us to eradicate bugs more quickly and resulting in better end products for our customers.  

Upgrade to Bacula v9 

We’re pleased to announce that we have now begun rolling out Bacula upgrades, integrating the latest version into MyUKFast. This allows us to support customers using CentOS8 and Ubuntu 18 who desire Bacula-powered backups on the latest Linux distributions. 

McAfee Support for CentOS8 

You can now install McAfee anti-virus onto servers running CentOS8. This means better protection for customers with these servers.  

Expanding our open source footprint 

To encourage open source contributions, we’ve recently launched a new section of the UKFast website dedicated to our developers’ open source work. Find out more about how our open source projects empower our customers and improve our solutions by exploring open source in practice in our recent dev guest blog: Step by step open source in practice 

Stay tuned for even more updates next month.
