Standing Cloud posts
Standing Cloud has just announced its ability to handle all backup and restore for users in the UK and Euro on that side of the pond. We previously announced support for both Tagadab and the Amazon EU data center, and now Standing Cloud has added a process flow to its service such that, by default, data stored in the EU is not transmitted to systems in the United States.

Our dev team is at it again, this time having just wrapped up an iteration code-named "Homer Simpson." Nothing "d'oh!" about this one - except the way we felt when customers and partners mentioned a few things our system lacked.

Recently, we bulked up our application offerings with a clever tool from GeoServer, an open source geospatial mapping software. If you're a mapping geek, you'll know that GeoServer forms a core component of the geospatial Web.
Last summer, to prove just how unique our offering was, we performed an internal test: how quickly could our sysadmins, Joel and Nick, who are stars, install an application outside of the Standing Cloud service?
This month, we bring you an iteration code-named "Grampa Simpson." He's a fellow who's clearly been around a long time. Though this iteration hasn't been around a long time (our development cycles are only 12 days long!), the list of features in it is long for sure! So without further ado:
