Free tools for working with the Flexiscale platform

We've recently written about the fact that Matchpeg has moved its Disaster Recovery servers to Flexiscale's cloud-computing platform.

In the course of trying out Flexiscale we did extensive work with their API to automate various aspects of our DR. We're now making these tools available for free for anyone who's interested:
  • A console application for starting, stopping, querying etc Flexiscale servers from the Windows command line. For example, you can use the tool to start servers automatically from a Windows scheduled task, and/or notify you if there's a problem with a server.
  • An alternative to Flexiscale's own web-based control panel.
You can read more about these tools at - or use the link at the bottom of our main Products page.
