A big shout out to the following companies for sponsoring development for one or more items in this release.

“This is a well written and useful module for provisioning both virtual and bare metal instances on the Vultr cloud computing platform. It combines HostJane.com’s goals for stable, reliable servers that are highly available and able to be provisioned from any device, from anywhere in the world, whether you’re in China, the U.S., or in a rural area with only mobile internet service. HostJane is very excited to have been involved with sponsoring Blesta’s brilliant engineering team and to have been a part of this module’s planning and coming to fruition. In the spirit of the open source community, we hope this powerful addition to Blesta’s module range will be extremely valuable to a wide group of webmasters who require exceptional web hosting and like us see the power of Vultr and Blesta combined.” —Tunde Reid-Kapo, CEO HostJane.com
