Bazarooma is IPv6-ready!

It is getting crowded in the internet - there are more users online, more websites and more services every day. Every device participating in the internet is assigned an IP address, just the way every phone has a phone number and the internet run out of such numbers a while ago. Elaborate tricks were invented to share some IP addresses between multiple computers, but even that wasn't enough to cope with the explosion in the number of computers connected to the internet.

In order to give the internet enough breathing space, the IPv6 protocol was invented. Users just need to update the software on their computers and phones for everything to work fine.

Website operators - such as Bazarooma - modernize their services in order to be fully compliant with IPv6. We are happy to announce that today we officially finished the testing stage and fully operate on both the IPv4 and IPv6 stack.

We migrated in the first week of March our cloud to a new infrastructure which is closer to our geographic hotspots. This means for you:
  • Increased reliability
  • Faster response times
  • Greater flexibility when adjusting to varying site load

Fresh summer UI

Just in time for the sunny weather we’re releasing a new cleaner & leaner user interface. As always, give it a spin at http://bazarooma.com and let us know what you think.

New web user interface

Hosted platform customers will receive the update within the week. Customers who operate their own installation can check with their assigned engineer if interested in the update.

Downtime 10. January 2011

Due to coinciding changes in the Google Maps API and a downtime with the infrastructure provider, the public site was unavailable sporadically during the early hours of this day. The outage has been fixed.
Corporate users of the hosted services were not affected by the outage.
