Backup Storage: Write Performance Doubled




We've refined our Backup Storage platforms in Sydney to provide even better performance during backup jobs. This means twice the write speeds available to the storage pools. Following a review of the architecture, logs and stats, we went on to design and deploy a revised set of configs which have boosted speeds. We're now monitoring this, and have further tweaks to deploy.

Questions? Please reach out to our crew, and let's get chatting.

MariaDB SQL: Performance Config Improved




Our crew have deployed tailored improvements to per-server MariaDB SQL Server configurations, to provide optimum SQL performance per-machine.

We only run MariaDB at LEOPARD.host - there is no MySQL here, only the (in our opinion) better fork of it. Want to know more? Get in touch with us!

Network Monitoring: Expanded & Enhanced




We've expanded how deep our monitoring is traversing throughout our infrastructure, and have tripled the resources available to the platform.

This means quicker polling, faster dashboard rendering for our NOC, and more flexibility to expand the scope of our polling, alerting & config.

Curious about how we do things? Get in touch with our crew.

Fully Managed VPS: The TNC Toolbox (Beta)


New addition


Following a bunch of requests, we've deployed a beta version of our WHM Plugin "The TNC Toolbox" to some clients who asked to go-ahead with it.

This gives you Reseller WHM access to a Self-restore Tool. Please ask your Account Manager for more information if you'd like to get it deployed!

Remember: We're here to innovate. Ideas? Let us know about them!

Hosting refined. Servers/Clusters expanded.


Fix / Remedy


After two years of working through our infrastructure and branding refreshes, we've taken the step to remove our traditional Business Web/Email Hosting from general sale. This ties into our Compute/Clusters push, where we've expanded on the public details surrounding our Fully Managed KVM VPS platform and how it delivers value to Australian Businesses & Agencies.

We're about delivering immense value to passionate businesses, and these changes allow us to deliver more focus where it's most valued - on our local partners who continue to defy norms and go above-and-beyond for clients.



Managed VPS: New 4x Plans Launched! 🎉




We've spent years refining our Fully Managed VPS platform and approach, culminating in a relentlessly powerful solution for our business clients.

After reviewing our clients' growth and our positioning, we've overhauled our Hassle-free Fully Managed VPS package line-up, upping the maximum Server from 10 cores to 16 cores, and boosting max RAM up to 64GB of ECC Memory.

This has also seen a new storage option available at 1.2TB of RAID10 Storage.


Website: Improved design of Pricing Tables




Following feedback we refreshed our website's pricing table design, tying it more strongly into our recently-tweaked branding. This has also made the tables mobile-responsive, allowing for easy scrolling no matter the platform.

Do you have more feedback still? We'd love to hear about it!

Service Monitoring: JetBackup & JetMongo


Fix / Remedy


We uncovered a problem where JetBackup v5 doesn't properly register Service Monitoring via chkservd. Our engineering crew have now deployed monitoring of the jetbackup5d and jetmongod services, meaning self-healing will be attempted if either are detected as unresponsive/down. This further protects our clients from any issues resulting from software problems.

Meanwhile, we're waiting for the upstream bug to be fixed. (JB5-cPanel-#122)

my.LEOPARD Services: Old/Cancelled hidden!




After many requests for this functionality, any Services and Domains that are more than 90 days cancelled/terminated/etc will be hidden from view in my.LEOPARD to let you better focus on what really matters to you.

Please let us know what you think of the new functionality!

2FA: Email and YubiKey added (to TOTP)


New addition


In addition to Time-based One Time Passwords (TOTP), we've now added support to my.LEOPARD for Email-based Codes and YubiKey hardware!

This means you can further leverage your Yubico security key, or can opt for the convenience of email-based verification. Keep in mind the concept of "what you know" (password), "what you have" (biometrics, some 2FA), etc. If your email account is compromised, Email-based 2FA likely won't help you!
