09 DEC 2013Hello everybody,
Beta is closing up and new stuff is already here! Today, we upgraded the virtual hardware for your VMs in the latest and greatest version. This means that any new VMs you create will run on the new virtual hardware.
We also know that everybody would like their old machines (which are already running with old virtual hardware) to get upgraded too. So, we've got you covered too. Just reboot your old machines from the ~okeanos Web UI and they will automatically get ugraded to the new virtual hardware. Note that rebooting ... read more

Hello ~okeanos users,
Some of you have probably noticed that your VMs were not responding for a few hours this morning. We will try to shed some light on what happened.

20 AUG 2013Hello everybody,
After many user and institutional requests, we are extending the Academic Login activation period for a month for all ~okeanos alpha users. That is from August 11, 2013 to September 11, 2013.
It seems that as of today, almost every Greek Academic and Research Institution has enabled support for ~okeanos, so all alpha users should be able to enable the new Academic Login method on their Profile page.
So, if you want to guarantee your transition to beta, please proceed with enabling Academic Login, now.

17 JUL 2013Hello everybody,
As you may have noticed, a new Image has appeared under System Images. And yes, it is openSUSE! Many of our users had asked if we could provide an official openSUSE image, so there you have it!
~okeanos now supports openSUSE all the way, which means there are also official packages of the kamaki command-line client and the snf-image-creator tool for the ~okeanos advanced users.
So, go ahead. Take them for a spin and see how it goes.
