Platform Release Notes: July 18, 2017
Curious what’s new that you might find helpful as a cloud.gov user? Here are highlights from our platform updates over the past two weeks.
- If you need to access multiple S3 buckets using the same credentials — for example to copy files between buckets — you can use the
additional_instancesoption when binding. Read the docs to learn more about how this works.
- cloud.gov supports Oracle SE1 for relational databases. This is by request only until AWS GovCloud eventually supports SE2. You can read more about relational database plans and how to request access to the Oracle service plan.
- We created a page explaining prototyping packages, how you might use them, and what they cost.
- If you have .NET applications you’re interested in running on cloud.gov, the updated .NET Core buildpack supports .NET Core 2 Preview (currently in alpha). It’s ready for you to prototype with your .NET applications.
