Time flies when you’re having fun, right? This past month we unveiled Cockpit, our brand new observability product, as well as an important step up for Kubernetes security, and for supercharging email campaigns. There are also new demos for you to play with in our sandbox 🥳

Content-wise, you can take a deeper dive into Cockpit, as well as the start of a new green IT series; and discover IPFS, a.k.a. the ‘real’ web3. We’re also super excited to welcome BeReal to speak at the next Paris edition of The Jam; and to bring both The Jam and our KubeTalks events to our lovely Lille HQ for the first time. See you there!

Meanwhile, enjoy 👇

🎯 Product updates

Cockpit brings multi-cloud observability

Discover Cockpit, the first observability product seamlessly integrated with the Scaleway ecosystem. Designed to be multi-source, it allows you to keep a close eye on all your metrics and logs from Scaleway, as well as your applications, or those of any other cloud provider. Find out how to simplify your cloud monitoring with Cockpit here.

Kubernetes Kapsule is now available on Private Networks

For even deeper K8s security, every new Kubernetes Kapsule cluster created from the Scaleway console is now attached to a Private Network by default. This service comes free of charge, fully configured, and supported on Terraform and CLI. You can either migrate your public Kubernetes clusters using the Scaleway Console directly. More info here

Transactional Email, now in General Availability

TEM is a fully-managed solution dedicated to sending transactional emails. With TEM, you can send your emails via the API or SMTP, add and verify a sending domain, configure the SPF/DKIM authentication and monitor emails via the console. Start using it now!

Web Hosting is now officially available in the Elements family!

Web Hosting provides a fully managed cPanel for website hosting needs. Previously limited to our Dedibox offering, it is now integrated directly in the Scaleway Console.

You can follow our updates on the Changelog page, and if you are missing something, you can always request a feature!

🎯 New Beta

We’ve got 3 new products in Discovery! Request access on our Beta pages 👍

Managed AMQP

This message broker is compatible with AMQP (Advanced Message Queuing Protocol) services, which can handle a variety of messaging use cases (direct queues, fanout, topic & headers) across your cloud architecture. Try it here!

Managed Document Database

This allows you to use a document database through a MongoDB®-compatible API. Managed Document Database works with your existing applications, drivers, or MongoDB®-compatible tools, with no need to refactor them. Right this way

Serverless DB

You can now use a database without worrying about managing the infrastructure supporting it. Best suited for SaaS companies that need to guarantee availability to their apps during peak traffic, without having to over-provision compute power. Check it out!
