Three significant updates hit MODX Cloud over the last few weeks. While we’ve continued working behind the scenes on the billing platform to support add-ons for plans and Cloud instances later this year, other areas have seen more visible progress.

Update: There is another update that fell close on the heals of this one announcing the MODX Cloud Public Roadmap. You should check it out, too.

Most notably, Frankfurt was the clear winner when we polled customers about where they wanted new MODX Cloud platforms. If you’re a customer that has been with MODX Cloud for a while, contact us to get access the FRA servers—we’d love to help you update your plan, so Sie sprechen Deutsch können. If you’ve signed up more recently, you should see the FRA data center as an option when creating a new Cloud.

In addition, all users can now restore backups to any Cloud instance. This is useful if you need to grab a file from a few days ago that accidentally was deleted, but you’ve made changes to the live site since then you’d rather not lose.

Finally, the Vault space usage report has returned to the Dashboard. You can now see how much space you’re using for Snapshots and Backups. It appears at the top of the Vault page. One of the first plan upgrades we’ll offer is extra storage space, so there’s no need to worry about exceeding their plan limits.

Other noteworthy updates include:

When we asked MODX Cloud users where they’d like to see MODX Cloud next, Frankfurt was first in line. Up next is London, which we also look forward to bringing online.

We’re also planning to streamline the plans, with added features and options, as we migrate everyone off the legacy billing platform. We also have a few other tricks up our sleeve we hope you will like.

Keep an eye here over the coming weeks—we can’t wait to share exciting updates to make MODX Cloud better for you and for your customers.
