We just released v1.0 of the TurnKey Hub, the free web service we've been developing this past 9 months that integrates TurnKey Linux with the Amazon Web Services cloud. The Hub powers two tightly integrated services:
- TurnKey Cloud Servers: allows you to rapidly explore and deploy TurnKey's 45+ free server apps in the Amazon EC2 cloud. No extra software or hardware required, just a browser.
- TurnKey Backup and Migration: provides secure and easy server backups to Amazon S3. Backups can be automatically restored, which makes it easy to deploy a development server into production or test backups in the cloud.
- The Hub is officially out of private beta: The registration is now open to the public. No invitation requests required.
- User interface improvements including a more refined look and feel, a new start wizard to help get new users going, and a new dashboard.
- We now try harder to explain to new visitors how the Hub works and what it's good for.
- OpenID support let's you register and login to the Hub more easily using an existing identity (e.g., Google, Yahoo), without having to remember another username/password.
- Full support for the latest TurnKey Linux 11 release.
- Support for basic pre-launch cloud server configuration. This means you don't have to worry about changing default passwords.
- Configurable TKLBAM data retention: let's you limit how many full backups you want around.
- Many performance optimizations, bugfixes, and stability improvement.
- Better internationalization support.
