Everleap Managed Hosting vs. Microsoft Azure

Takeshi EtoWe often get questions regarding the differences between our Everleap Managed Hosting solutions and hosting at Microsoft Azure.  So I thought I’d address this question here.

Let me say first that Microsoft Azure is a powerful public cloud platform. It is built for developers and can run virtually anything. Microsoft is continuously adding more functionality to address very niche technological use cases. Everything you can do on our Everleap platform, you can do on Azure. So, it is natural for anyone to ask then, compared to the Azure behemoth, why does Everleap even try to compete? 

It’s a good question and the answer is that we are not really trying to compete with Azure on hosting technologies. We know that Azure will always have a deeper technology stack and a much bigger footprint than we will ever have. While our hosting functionality can overlap with Azure, Everleap fills a different need in the market. We focus on delivering services to small- and medium-sized businesses. We are not trying to be all things for all use cases. Plainly speaking, sometimes you may need the many tools of a Swiss army knife and other times you just need a good pair of scissors.

.NET 5 (ASP.NET Core 5) Hosting

Takeshi EtoToday we announce that .NET 5 or ASP.NET Core 5 is installed on the Everleap system for Framework-dependent Deployment (FDD). (Note that .NET 5 or any other .NET Core version can always be used on the Everleap platform at any time with Self-Contained Deployment (SCD) – even if the version is not installed on the server.) It did take a little while to get .NET 5 available for FDD on our entire system since we’ve been going through a round of hardware upgrades. I’m happy to say that we’ve finished this round of upgrades and so now .NET 5 is available on all servers.

IP Restriction for Private MySQL Server

With this feature, customers that use Private MySQL Servers can restrict the connection to their MySQL server to only be from a specific list of IPs. The customer can update their “allowed” IP list at any time through their Control Panel.

Good Bye 2020 – Hello 2021

Takeshi EtoWhen 2020 began, we were excited about the prospects the new year could bring. But those feelings were crushed with news of a mysterious rapidly spreading disease and finally hearing the that this was a full-blown pandemic.

Once the pandemic declaration was made, lockdown orders soon followed, and we quickly took action to have all our staff work remotely. Of course, we had our hiccups, but since we were already set up with the ability for our system admin staff to work remotely (prior to the pandemic), we were able to transition all our staff quickly.

We knew it was important for us to be able to maintain our hosting infrastructure and our customer support, as our customers would increasingly rely on their online presence to help get them through this new reality. We also thought that we may see many businesses, developers and entrepreneurs pivot their businesses or launch new lines of online ventures and new projects.

I’m extremely proud that our team has been able to deliver on our hosting promises even during a tough 2020.

Highlights from 2020

In the past, at the end of most years, I posted lists of things that we accomplished. In this post, I just want to highlight a few things we did in 2020.

Security Solutions

Due to increased reliance on online technologies during the pandemic and with many working from home and most using their own hardware, we thought it was important to focus on security.

Technology Enhancements

Onward to 2021

As we put 2020 behind us and begin a new decade, we continue to be hopeful and we will continue to strive to offer our customers solid hosting solutions that they can count on.

We want to thank all our customers for your business and we wish all of you a happy new year. Stay safe and healthy.
