Early June the platform we had was running smoothly, but was utterly destroyed due to the unexpected inability of Linode to scale our kubernetes control plane. The downtime caused due to this was disastrous and something we decided to ingrain into our vision for the future to prohibit from happening again.
That is why we are currently switching over to the Google Kubernetes Engine. Google has been fundamental in creating, maintaining and supporting kubernetes as an open source project. Their cloud is exceeding excellence and as such makes a perfect fit to the ambition of Blomstra to provide quality managed Flarum communities. Work is required from our end to move over, but we're already well on our way to go into an open beta later this year.
My apologies to all of you we have kept waiting, but we prefer to provide the services at a level you appreciate.
As a consequence we modified our timeline and decided to bring forward another plan we hoped to have started later next year. Starting today Blomstra is providing Flarum development, this includes commissioned extensions but also customisations in terms of design and layout. We will also be available for any Flarum related consultancy. Yours truly and @ianm will be your contacts for any of these assignments, unified under the Blomstra name.
