keys can be used when you enable a server's console-over-vps feature.

Some of you may know already, that David Mace is in hospital in a serious way after an aorta rupture.
He was taken to the hospital and had several surgeries. Over the past couple of weeks he's been in an induced
coma, and there was some uncertainty if he was going to survive. He has started showing improvement now, his
blood pressure and pulse are in a good range, they started feeding him through a tube..
Now he is showing some signs of life, and awareness of what is going on around him, his wife has said ‘I
think he'd appreciate a funny video from all of you guys’
We are happy to announce the immediate availability of SSD-backed VPS hosts.
These servers run the VPS images on a RAID array of SSDs.
The SSDs increase the disk IO throughput and decrease disk IO latency (particularly on 'random access' activities, like database inserts/queries).
We are happy to announce there is now a London-based Bakop server available. This is in addition to the Bakop server in Dallas. Plus we have one planned for Brisbane (hopefully coming on line next week...).
You now have the choice of location for your backups. Great for people when choosing their disaster recover location.
