Stackato Micro Cluster

The most exciting thing for me about the Stackato 3.4 release has nothing to do with new product features. Starting with this release, the Stackato Micro Cloud License has been extended to allow the creation of clusters with up to 20GB of RAM without any license fees.

Happy SysAdmin Appreciation Day

By Phil Whelan, July 24, 2014

It's SysAdmin Appreciation Day on July 25th! To mark this wondrous day and spread the word, we thought we would head out onto the streets of Vancouver and find out more from the general public what they thought of SysAdmins.
