Rescue Mode

Troubleshoot your servers with Rescue Mode

November 17, 2022

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.

Latitude.sh bandwidth overage is now $0.01 per GB

Bandwidth overage is now $0.01 per GB

September 20, 2022

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.

User data

Run code on a server's first boot with User Data scripts

User data are small scripts that run on a server's first boot, letting you quickly customize a new server the first time it boots after its deployment.
