What’s New With Aptible: September 2022
At Aptible, we’re always focused on making it easier for engineering teams to manage their cloud infrastructure. This month, we’re excited to introduce a new set of features designed to accelerate automation.
Downloadable Operation Logs
Accessing operation logs just got a whole lot easier.
We released support for downloading logs for completed operations from the Aptible Dashboard or CLI, and also for attaching to real-time logs via Aptible CLI by providing the operation ID. This feature is great for Terraform users!
S3 Log Archiving
A new disaster recovery option unlocked 🔓.
With our new S3 Log Archiving functionality, you can now configure log archiving to an Amazon S3 bucket owned by you! This feature is designed to be an important complement to Log Drains, so you can retain logs for compliance in the event your primary logging provider experiences delivery or availability issues.

Questions You’re Asking in Interviews
Looking for your next engineering role? In 2013, a blog post by Edward Ocampo-Gooding (@ Shopify) inspired a list of suggested questions for interview candidates looking for their next web dev employer. Shortly after, this list inspired a popular blog post, Questions I'm asking in interviews by Julia Evans. Questions I'm asking in interviews open sources an extensive list of questions covering topics such as engineering practices, management's style and company culture, drawn from many others in the tech space sharing questions that are important to them throughout their interview process.
Backup Strategies on Aptible: Balancing Continuity and Costs
In the world of data security, especially for companies navigating the complexities of compliance, database backups are not just a best practice — they're often a regulatory necessity. That’s why, at Aptible, we've made this an integral part of our service, offering comprehensive database backup solutions as a standard feature.
Aptible in 2023
In 2023, we reintroduced ourselves as an entirely new Aptible. This included a new look, new pricing plans, and a new UI. But more importantly, we reintroduced ourselves as a platform on a mission to give enterprise-grade infrastructure to engineering teams of all sizes. This year marked significant strides in enhancing our platform, making Aptible more powerful than ever.
