Cloudways Adds Kyup as an Infrastructure Partner

Developing the next-generation technology, stripping it down to its bare metal and squeezing maximum performance from it has always been our focus at Kyup. This idea started everything for us and keeping our aim on providing an unmanaged service is responsible for most of our loved product features: instant provisioning; unmatched speed and resource efficiency; seamless auto-scaling. But of course, not everyone feels comfortable managing their server infrastructure and is ready to jump on the bare metal ship. Along the way we’ve had requests for managed cloud hosting features, and today we are announcing our partnership with Cloudways that addresses many of those requests.

How to Migrate a Cloud Server to a Linux Container from Kyup

The first question that we get from developers when they hear about the instant server deploy, native performance and real-time and auto scaling features of our Linux containers is “How do I migrate my cloud server to your infrastructure?” Up until now the answer was - the same way you would transfer a virtual machine to a new one. But we know that’s easier said than done.

Migrating virtual machines has always been a time-consuming, complicated and all in all a nerve-wrecking process. To make that a less daunting task, today we are launching two new features that take the hassle off the cloud server migration process.

Putting a powerful hardware into a toaster, a vacuum cleaner, an air conditioner or another well known home appliance will not make it smart out of the box. But connecting it to the cloud where the user can define rules, monitor and control it remotely in real time is another story.

Optimizing Mail Server SMTP Requests for Maximum Resource Efficiency


Or how we went from 2 000 000 to 200 000 daily SMTP connections overnight

If you are running a huge pile of email servers, like we do, you deal with a lot of SPAM messages on a daily basis. In which case - godspeed, but this article is not about the way you find, flag, and prevent SPAM. It is about its impact on the computational resources practically wasted by the servers for processing messages that afterwards ended up in the junk folder. Turns out, you can effectively find a way to reclaim all that computational power and use it for better purposes. Even if you don’t deal with huge volumes of SPAM messages in particular, our quest could surely shed some light on some simple server optimisations that can help you use your resources much more efficiently.

 GetClouder is now Kyup


If you’re reading this, chances are you already know about us. But if you don’t, here is the run-down: GetClouder was created in January 2014 as a side project of SiteGround Web Hosting.
