Yesterday, my morning started much like most Tuesday mornings do for me... my kids (6 and 4) were up way too early again at around 6am! Both were demanding I play with them before they head to school. I did my usual and said "give me five minutes" as I tried to wake up after another night of going to sleep after midnight... one day I should really learn to go to bed earlier, now that I have kids! But this morning was different. I started to wake from my dazed state and reached for my phone.

In October 2020 we released the community-driven roadmap for 2021. It's time to revisit and see all the things we have completed from the list! I am very proud to say that at Civo we have taken the community suggestions and implemented most of them during the launch on May 4th 2021. Let's dive into each of the features listed in the original blog post and see where we are with the 2021 Civo Roadmap.

As with all start-ups, especially for a cloud provider, access to funds is imperative to build and scale quickly – after all building out new data centre regions doesn't come cheap! So in recent months we quietly opened a seed round to acquire $2.8m worth of funding – giving Civo a pre-money valuation of $16,800,000. Since launching into beta nearly 2 years ago, we’ve had tons of VC companies knocking on our door, but at this stage we decided not to take VC money.

We're very proud to announce that we have been accepted by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) as a conformant Certified Kubernetes provider for our v1.20 Civo Kubernetes product based on K3s. Every small business starts with a goal of competing with the big fish of the industry, and a huge part of that is having the certification to prove you're providing a compatible service. We're now in the company of some really inspirational organisations...

It’s with immense pride and excitement we can announce that Civo is coming out of beta! When we planned out our beta program, which we called #KUBE100, our first priority was getting real-world feedback from a wide range of developers, all at various stages in their Kubernetes journey. We wanted to create a Kubernetes platform that plugged the gaps we saw in the industry – speed of deployment, ease of use, and a simple billing model.

When we first started our managed Kubernetes beta, we knew utilising K3s as the Kubernetes distribution of choice was the right move. Not only is it light-weight and quick to deploy, K3s has features ideally suited for the scenarios we envisioned our users would encounter. It’s important for us to make sure any service we offer is 100% compatible with industry standards, and K3s allows us to do just that but with simplicity and speed for our users.

2020 was a busy year for Civo, and we couldn’t have done it, and get where we are now, without our community of users. Between the wider community, our Civo Ambassadors, and our staff team, there is an enormous amount of knowledge and skill to be found. I’d like to present some of our top cloud-native guides for the year gone by, drawn both from guides published on our site and around the web by our community of users.

Like pretty much every company in 2020, Civo has had to deal with some unexpected world events! To wrap up the year, I thought I'd put together some of the most significant developments in our company from a CTO's perspective, and how they will affect us looking forward into the next year.

I joined Civo just over a year ago (straight out of a web development bootcamp) and had to quickly become familiar with concepts of Kubernetes and modern cloud-native software development as we prepared to launch our #KUBE100 beta. So, I, along with the rest of the team, thought about how we could help new users learn the basics of Kubernetes in a simple, practical, and fun way. This is how KubeQuest was born.

Hello everyone, I’m Saiyam – amongst other things I’m a CNFC Ambassador, an Influx ACE, and as of the last few weeks, now Director of Technical Evangelism here at Civo. With Civo being a fast-paced start-up in an even faster moving industry, everyone here has a “all-hands-on deck” approach and wears many hats. My role is no exception. One of the early tasks that I am getting to grips with (in line with our focus on community) is revamping our suggestions section.

Building the #1 cloud hosting platform for developers. Superfast, scalable cloud servers with a developer-friendly API – moulded and shaped by our community.
