Over the last two years, while the anynines public PaaS was running on AWS in Ireland, we have received lots of requests for our service to run in Germany. Don’t ask any longer for that, because we are moving back to Germany.

Just shoot us a mail with your organization name on the old and the new platform, and we will take care of it for you.
Just create another account, you will get another trial.
This can be achieved by using cf ssh, see this handy guide https://docs.cloudfoundry.org/devguide/deploy-apps/ssh-services.html the same thing can be done in reverse on the new system.
Unfortunately your application might contain secrets that we should not be able to see, that’s why we’re asking you to move your data yourself. If you need any help, just shoot us an email.
After you transfer your application to the German instance, you need to make sure your DNS is pointing to the new instance.
The address of the new instance will be .de.a9sapp.eu. The only difference to your old app will be that the default domain uses ‘de’ instead of ‘aws.ie’ If you use a custom domain, you can just change the CNAME from aws.ie.a9sapp.eu to de.a9sapp.eu. When this is finished your dig queries will contain CNAME dualstack.a9s-live-de-2080262848.eu-central-1.elb.amazonaws.com.
Unfortunately distributing DNS records might take up to a couple of days, so make sure the old instance is up and running until the DNS shows the right record. You can check if the DNS has been updated by running dig .aws.de.a9sapp.eu or using an online tool like Pingdom to make sure everything’s fine.
As of this blog post, we have disabled new registrations to anynines-ireland. We ask you to migrate your data to anynines-germany until April 9th, 2018. At this date, we will shut down the system in Ireland completely and will only support our German Cloud. We know it is on short notice, but we will do everything we can to help you in this transition.
