We’ve been talking a lot about K8s this past month. Why? Kubernetes is key to the future of the cloud. It’s optimization at its best for ambitious organizations looking to scale. From KCD (Kubernetes Community Days) and KubeTalks to our live Twitch session featuring our very own Dr Kube (nobody cares more about your cluster’s health!), we’re all in on helping you make the most of the cloud’s best tech.

So, let’s dive into what happened in March, and what’s coming in April!

Product updates

Go and Python on Serverless Functions
Developing functions became much easier with our local development framework for Go and Python.

Devtools for Cockpit
Devtools are now in production for Observability's Cockpit. Cockpit, Token, and Grafana User are now available on Terraform, the CLI, and SDK.

Host header routes
Scaleway Load Balancers now provide the ability to create routes based on the value of incoming requests' Host HTTP headers.
The console manages everything for you and configures the route type automatically, based on the frontend and backend you use. The API still lets you configure the route type; just make sure you update your automation tools. SNI routes with HTTP backend won’t be supported as of June 1st.

Anti-spam policy for Transactional Email
We have added an anti-spam policy for our customers to be able to use the Transactional Email (TEM) service. Find out about Transactional Email's anti-spam policy here.
