I’ve been writing a bit about Reclaim Cloud on this blog over the past month in preparation for this: the launching of the open, public beta for Reclaim Hosting’s new cloud hosting service! It’s really exciting to share this news, and I would be lying if I didn’t admit I’m a bit surprised how quickly everything came together from the point we realized it was possible in late April to rolling it out publicly today.
What is it? Reclaim Cloud is a container-based hosting solution that allows folks to create custom technology stacks in everything from PHP to Ruby to node.js to Go —not to mention the possibility to load and run just about any Docker container freely available on the web. What’s more, we have a growing collection of one-click installers for a wide range of applications.
So, in short, it’s everything we have not been able to provide in terms of hosting a wide variety of technologies and tools beyond the LAMP stack. What’s more, the infrastructure allows the scaling of computing and storage resources seamlessly. A watershed moment for Reclaim and an important move to ensure we can help our community make sense of the ongoing shift in the hosting landscape.
How can you get help? Throughout the free, open beta period this month we’ll be handling all support through our community forums where you’ll find useful guides, focused video tutorials (like those featured above), and the ability to request help via forum topics.
Where do I sign-up? You can read more and sign-up for the free beta period on our website at http://reclaim.cloud
So, reclaim your sense of edtech exploration and jump on the next shuttle to Cloud City!
