Introducing Private MySQL Hosting

Takeshi EtoWe’re excited to announce the availability of Private MySQL Hosting at Everleap.

This new premium MySQL solution will provide you with your own private MySQL server that is not shared with any other customer. Your MySQL databases will get access to all of the disk space, CPU and RAM on the virtual machine. And similar to all of our other hosting services, it is fully managed. MySQLWe will handle all the server updates and security at no additional cost, freeing you to devote your time and resources to your website and web application and not on server maintenance.



Everleap Sponsored AZGroups Scott Guthrie Event

Takeshi EtoAZGroups held an event in January featuring Scott Guthrie himself.

Even though Scott is now insanely busy as the Executive Vice President of the Cloud and Enterprise group at Microsoft, he still takes the time to do these events and code in front of developers in his signature red polo shirt. It’s pretty impressive.

The event was held at the Orpheum Theater in downtown Phoenix, Arizona.

Takeshi EtoIn keeping with tradition, I’m posting our 2016 Top accomplishments list.

  1. Launched SQL 2016
    Microsoft launched their next version of SQL Server so we made it available for Everleap customers. We introduced both Shared SQL 2016 and Managed SQL 2016 solutions.  Some of the new enhancements include temporal tables, query store, stretch database, and native support for JSON.



Everleap Attends SoCal Code Camp 2016

Calvin WongWe sponsored and attended the 2016 SoCal Code Camp on November 12th. We sponsor Code Camp events all over the country every year, but we always look forward to the SoCal event on the USC campus. It’s one of the few events that are local, so we can get out there to meet new and old friends from the Los Angeles developer community.

Here we are during one of the few quiet moments during speaker sessions.

Joseph JunA new feature that we’re introducing with Update Rollup 11 for Windows Azure Pack is Auto Heal. Auto Heal is a monitoring tool and certain actions can be automatically taken when a condition is reached. For example, if your site uses 500 MB of memory, Auto Heal can be configured to recycle the application pool.

Let’s take a look at how to configure Auto Heal to recycle your site if it reaches 1 GB of memory usage.



New ICANN Domain Change Rules Take Effect Today

Michael PhillipsWe mentioned previously that on December 1st new ICANN rules are going into effect that change the way some domain contact information changes are processed. Well, here we are, and now we know a bit more about how the changes are going to be handled by our registrar, OpenSRS, so here’s an update.

First, the change affects all “generic top level domains.” Those are domains like .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, etc., and it includes all of the new domain extensions, like .blog, .photo, etc. Country code domains such as .uk, .tv, .co, etc. are not governed by ICANN, so they are not affected.



Everleap Attains Privacy Shield Certification

Takeshi EtoWith the help of our privacy management solutions partner, Truste, I am happy to announce that Everleap has attained Privacy Shield certification.

Privacy Shield FrameworkThe Privacy Shield framework replaces the former Safe Harbor framework that was struck down by an EU court in 2015. Starting in August 2016, the Department of Commerce started accepting certifications under the new Privacy Shield framework.

We believe our efforts are a differentiator and demonstrates our commitment to protecting your privacy. I hope you do too.
