Custom Images (iPXE)
Deploy servers with your own custom images via iPXE script. With Custom Images you can create your own images and quickly boot into them. That's a lot more power and flexibility over your infrastructure.
Custom images can be a powerful tool for improving your server environment's performance, security, and customization.
Server page redesign
The server page has been redesigned for simplicity. No more tabs — everything is now on the same page.
Quickly view bandwidth usage and consumption trend from the new Bandwidth usage overview section.
Collapse items on the sidebar to focus on a specific section. The app remembers items you've collapsed, so the page always looks the way you left it.
Features like Remote Access, Rescue, Reinstall and Delete are now under the Actions button.
Copy commonly used values for API requests like server ID and Label with a single click.
Fancy new icons throughout.
Accelerate: GPU Infrastructure for your AI Stack
Accelerate are instances based on Metal powered by NVIDIA's H100 GPU. You can start training or inferencing on models with pre-configured deep learning tools like TensorFlow, Pytorch, and Jupyter.
With H100, you can train your models up to 9x faster than with the previous generation A100.
Improvements and fixes
Latitude.sh Terraform Provider: Shipped version 0.2.1 with support for deploying servers with SSH and user data and fixed an issue that prevented project settings from being updated.
Updated API URL: The default API URL is now api.latitude.sh. The old URL will continue working indefinitely.
Go client library: Released version 0.1.3.
Dashboard: Improved several aspects of the dashboard to provide better interactions with dropdowns, selects, and more.
API: Added the ipmi_status to GET /servers responses to retrieve the health status of a server's IPMI connection.
User permissions: Collaborators can now update the deploy config of a server.
Bandwidth alerts: Improved notifications for bandwidth alerts to avoid sending too many emails.
Deploy servers in 15 seconds with instant deployments
You can now deploy bare metal servers in as little as 15 seconds. Instant deployments are available in all locations for select operating systems.
Views & filters
Create views and filters for your servers and IP addresses right inside the dashboard.
By creating a filtered view a new tab is added to your server or IP resource list. All of your team members get immediate access so you can easily share just the most relevant data with them.
Troubleshoot your servers with Rescue Mode
Misconfiguration and bad installs can cause you to get locked out of your server.
Today we are releasing Rescue Mode as an additional way to troubleshoot your servers and regain access to your system.
When you put a server in rescue mode, we load a lightweight Ubuntu image into your server's memory. This allows you to SSH to the machine to fix issues, recover and transfer files, or simply change access credentials.
Rescue is available for all servers in all locations.
Get notified when you are about to reach your bandwidth quota
It is now easier to be on top of your monthly bandwidth consumption.
Enable Bandwidth Alerts with one click to get an email whenever the bandwidth quota for a region goes over 80%.
Download invoices in CSV and PDF
Invoices can now be downloaded in CSV and PDF formats so you can easily scan and import detailed information about your services to your own systems. Check out the docs →
Zero to metal in seconds with metal.new
Go straight to the server deployment page from your browser with the metal.new shortcut.
Multiple teams and projects? Get rid of all of those Bookmarks! We've built a handy project selection page that gets you deploying in seconds.
Bogota, Colombia, is now available
We’re happy to add Bogota, Colombia, as Latitude.sh's fifth location in LATAM, making us the region's most extensive Bare Metal cloud provider.
Latitude.sh now offers 15 Core locations you can deploy to instantly.
Deploy to Latitude.sh from Terraform
We are excited to announce that you can now deploy and version your Latitude.sh infrastructure with Terraform.
If you are an experienced Terraform user or just getting started, we've put together a guide that can get you up and running with Latitude.sh's provider in no time.
Thanks to the Capture Alpha team for their valuable contribution to this project. 🤝
Check out the docs or go to the provider page.
Additional security with Multi-factor Authentication (MFA)
Multi-factor Authentication is now available as an additional security step for Email and OAuth-based logins.
Ashburn, United States, is now available
The state of Virginia is known for being the number one region for data centers in the US, with a high concentration of major public clouds. Today, we're excited to introduce Ashburn as our eighth location in the United States.
With the launch of our Ashburn location, you are now 1 ms away from clouds like AWS and Azure.
Ubuntu 22.04 is now available for all instances
Ubuntu 22.04 LTS, codename Jammy Jellyfish, is now available for all instance types.
Bandwidth overage is now $0.01 per GB
While egress bandwidth fees are a very profitable source of revenue for public cloud providers, it ultimately hurts everyone.
They not only increase the complexity of running digital infrastructure by having CloudOps teams go out of their way to save costs but are slowing down the migration to the cloud by breaking the promise of cost reduction.
It is no surprise that we have always strived to make bandwidth management simpler and cheaper for our customers. Every Latitude.sh server comes with 20 TB of free egress bandwidth, we automatically pool bandwidth for your servers and offer bandwidth packages at rates as low as $0.00064 per GB.
Even with all of these benefits, you could go over your quota at some point.
To reduce operational complexity and surprise charges, and because our network has grown to a point where we can pass these savings on to our customers, we are reducing overage egress fees by 80%. Each GB over your quota will now cost just $0.01, down from $0.05.
Buenos Aires, Argentina, is now available
Buenos Aires, Argentina, is our most requested location and has been running for a few months as a Custom region for Custom Deployments. Today, we're excited to extend server availability in Buenos Aires to all customers.
We're starting with the c2.small.x86 instance, with more instances coming later this year.
Invoices page: Improvements to detailed invoices make it easier to determine how much each resource costs.
Server create date: The server page shows when you deployed the server.
Credentials: We've improved how credentials are shown in the dashboard, and now show which SSH keys the server was deployed with. There's also a one-liner you can quickly copy to log in to your server.
Hostname edit: You can now edit the hostname of a server from the server details page and through the API.
User data templates
User data templates give you a quick start when creating your scripts. We‘ve added templates for common use cases, like updating packages and sending Slack notifications to check in a new or reinstalled device with your team.
Get started by going to Project Settings → User data → Create from template
Check out the documentation as well.
SAML Single Sign-On now available
Teams can now use their identity provider to log into Latitude.sh with SAML Single Sign-On. All major identity providers are supported, including Okta, Active Directory, OneLogin, and Auth0, and can be configured by going to the Settings section of the Settings & Billing page.
There's an optional Directory Sync feature, allowing teams to automatically sync users form a directory provider, adding and removing users automatically based on changes happening in your IAM.
