Previously, we pushed new updates to Mars first, and then later to Earth. However, this practice lead us to significant problems in November 2018. Responding to your feedback, we’ve created a new partner-only planet: Venus.
In the future, we will push new versions to Venus first and ask our partners to vigorously test the new features there before they are deployed to Mars and Earth. As a “Thank You” for testing our new functionality, Venus will allow devices which are out-of-warranty / subscription.
If you would like to host an organization on Venus, just use the tab on the side to send us a comment.
Tell us that you would like to move that organization to Venus, and we’ll migrate it over when it’s ready.
Please remember though that no customer production environments should be hosted on Venus, as we will not be providing end-customer support for devices hosted there. The organization being migrated may also experience some downtime during the migration process.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Should I move my organization to Earth for greater stability?
Earth and Mars now have the same treatment, so there’s no need to migrate.
Could you move just a few groups in my organization to Venus ?
InControl 2 does not have a migration feature yet, so you’ll need to remove the devices from your current organization, create a new organization and re-create the group there.
How much time will my organization be offline during the migration process?
We expect the downtime to be around 10 minutes at most.
