Moving MySQL server

Our main goal with PingPing is simplicity. Simplicity for the customer, but also for ourselves. That also means for our servers and database. We’re always busy with improving PingPing by making changes in our code and optimizing the underlying servers. This time our database needed some love and we decided to switch to a different and more powerful server.

Last August we did a brand new redesign. To make sure we did everything right and to improve we want to collect feedback from our current and possibly new customers. We found the perfect tool for that called Freddy Feedback.

Our learnings when providing a free plan on a SaaS

On the 30th of September, we removed the free plan and started offering a 14-days free trial again. This seems to work better than giving the monitoring away since people get to try all features for free for 14 days. After that, they can decide if they want to stay or not. Read about our learnings when providing a free plan.
