After a little more than a month of Alpha testing, which has been well received, our new data center in Paris is now entering Beta testing, with a tentative production date of March 20, 2017.
Be aware that only our Gandi Cloud hosting platform is currently available, which includes: Servers, Volumes, IPs, and Private Networks. No date is currently set for the launch of Simple Hosting and Web Accelerators on FR-SD3. These are currently only available on our primary Paris data center and our Luxembourg one (FR-SD2 and LU-BI1, respectively).
We would like to thank all of you who have helped test this new infrastructure so far during the Alpha phase and we would encourage all customers to continue testing it for free during Beta testing as well, all the way up until the release date of March 20.
Once that date arrives, we will no longer be able to continue offering free hosting on FR-SD3. The pricing scale in place on our other data centers will be implemented for FR-SD3 as well.
Of course feel free to contact our Hosting Support team for any and all questions, comments, impressions, or thoughts. Or, alternatively, share them with us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
