New feature announcement: Introducing Automated Backups

You asked and we delivered! The days of configuring cron jobs to take backups for each of your environments are over. Soon, for every grid project, you will have your backups automated according to the plan of your choice. Meaning you can focus on deploying today without worrying about whether you can roll back to yesterday - this new feature has you covered.

Introducing a more complete logs forwarding experience

One of the key attributes of DevOps and SRE engineers is their ability to meticulously observe and monitor all of their applications. A task which can be achieved more efficiently by centralizing all generated logs to a central endpoint. By centralizing logging, engineers can, at any time, have an accurate overview of all events which take place across their applications, from just one place. Storing logs in an external system also allows companies to ensure compliance with many certifications.
