IONOS has renamed Managed Backup to Backup Service to standardize the product terminology. Earlier, Managed Backup was also referred to as Backup as a Service or Backup by Acronis across different platforms. The new unified name ensures consistency in our communications and branding. This change does not impact the product's functionality, and the service remains unchanged. The documentation portal now reflects the product name changes. For more information, see FAQs.

IONOS offers a revamped web console for IONOS S3 Object Storage in the General Availability (GA) phase. The console is an enhanced version of the old S3 Web Console, providing improved user experience and performance, intuitive design, contextual help, and faster responsiveness. The user interface navigation label is renamed from S3 Web Console to IONOS S3 Object Storage in the DCD. For more information, see FAQs.

IONOS S3 Object Storage offers the Bucket Policy, view object versions and metadata, and Object Lock features in the General Availability (GA) phase. Using Bucket Policy, overarching access policies for a bucket can be set to control data access and usage. With Object Lock, data can be secured by implementing retention policies or legal holds; and with object versions and metadata, object retrieval is easier for large volumes of unstructured data. These new features overall improve the access and data management in the Object Storage.
December 13
IONOS offers the new Container Registry Vulnerability Scanning feature in General Availability (GA) phase. Software development is constantly evolving, and security is our top priority. The Container Registry Vulnerability Scanning feature is specifically designed to enhance the security of your containerized applications by proactively identifying potential vulnerabilities present in your artifacts. Scans occur each time an artifact is pushed to the registry and when new vulnerability definitions are published. It quickly detects any security weaknesses in container dependencies and libraries, allowing you to react immediately to prevent exploitation. For more information about reviewing the vulnerability scan results, see View Vulnerability Scan Results.
This feature will be available when creating new container registries, and you can also enable it for existing registries. For more information, see Enable Vulnerability Scanning.
December 13
IONOS offers the New Container Registry Web Console, an enhanced version of the existing Container Registry Web Console, providing improved user experience and performance, intuitive design, faster responsiveness and additional features than the existing Container Registry Web Console. For more information, see DCD How-Tos.
