Improved disk systems on all servers

For the past months, our engineers were working on a substantial upgrade of the disk systems on our servers. As of today, besides the RAID6 disk array, all our servers have solid state disks (SSD) as well. The I/O operations are balanced between the SSD and the RAID array, and most intensive operations run on the SSD. This significantly improves the overall system performance, and we believe that this brings the level of our hosting services even higher.


MySQL 5.1 on all our servers

In the last several weeks, we were performing an upgrade of the MySQL5 server to version 5.1. The servers were upgraded in batches to avoid any possible problems and to be able to provide extensive support to customers with possible incompatibility issues. Now all our servers run MySQL 5.1, which is the latest stable MySQL version, and its availability goes the furthest into the future according to the MySQL lifecycle calendar.


SpamAssassin

We are happy to announce that SpamAssassin has been installed on our servers. SpamAssassin is a powerful mail filter that provides an effective means for fighting spam.

Check it out! Just login to your CP, open the Mail Manager and set your SpamAssassin to whatever value you think will suit your needs.


SSL support for MySQL, IMAP and FTP

Integration of SSL support is ICDSoft's next step in providing greater security and privacy protection of your web communication. We are glad to announce that after the standard testing procedures, the SSL (Secure Socket Layer) support for MySQL, FTP and IMAP has been implemented on our servers.


Ruby support added

In answer to our customers' requests, we have installed the latest version of the Ruby scripting language on our machines. Now, besides Perl, Python, and PHP, ICDSoft's clients can take advantage of Ruby's simple and straight-forward methods for text file processing and object-oriented programming.
