Managed Server

You are looking at the general documentation of our Managed Server. Switch to a technical documentation by using the Switch to selector at the bottom of the navigation.

Versions

To ensure the highest possible stability, we rely on server versions for our Managed Servers. Managed Server versions allow us to introduce extensive breaking changes without compromising or negatively impacting the operation of existing Managed Servers.

A new managed version is released on average every 2 years and receives support for 5 years, which is technically equivalent to the corresponding Debian release.

Stability is important to us; therefore, the customer can decide when to change to a new Managed Server version. That is why we do not use in-place updates, which may have an unpredictable impact on the operation of an application.

Migration

We recommend switching to a new Managed Server version at the same time as you carry out maintenance work or deploy a new application release. This allows the correct function to be checked and new features of the new Managed Server version can be used immediately.

Even though, In-place updates of existing systems are not intended, migration of an existing application is simple. Files and database can be moved quickly and easily via SSH by copying directly from server to server. A corresponding deployment pipeline can further simplify the move.
