First and foremost, please accept our apologies for the downtime following netvibes’ major architecture upgrade.
We anticipated a few hours (3 hours) of downtime but encountered unforeseeable unusual technical details. Again, we apologize for the inconvenience caused.
This update was needed for major architecture improvements that will enhance better performance and build exciting new features.
Everyone on Ginger
Everyone will be on Ginger. The most important migration of netvibes history is in progress and all accounts starting with the most used, will be migrated to Ginger.
All your existing subscriptions on Coriander will be added to your Ginger account. In the interim and due to the volume of Users to be migrated, we had to shut down the server and temporarily disable the friend features. Do not despair, they will be online again soon.
Thanks to your incredible feedback, Ginger is now ready for massive deployment.
We have listened to you: create a public netvibes (or universe), is no longer mandatory. You can activate it anytime later.
We have worked on localization: our new CDN has improved dramatically both in speed and acceleration worldwide (USA, Europe, China, Africa, South America)
We will have a localized our start page for 140 countries and region thanks to our Localization Team. This is believed to be the biggest number of countries supported for any web 2.0 company in the world.
We have rebuilt our entire backend and made improvements about how content on netvibes can be manipulated. A whole new set of APIs for every service on netvibes will be available soon. People will be able to leverage their widgets in a whole new different way.
A new netvibes site
Even with a great product, we want to ensure that our message, our vision and what we believe makes us different from bigger players. Look out for upcoming blogposts about our new corporate web site.
Netvibes business services
Our Business Team is working hard to create more and more cool widgets from publishers and services like financiers, utilities and tv media to be available on your netvibes. This new unit will be announced during the web 2.0 conference.
Again, we apologize for the downtime. Our team is working diligently to make your internet life easier everyday and we thank you for your support.
See you soon for upcoming blogposts and enjoy netvibes.
