We’re happy to announce that Gossamer Threads successfully completed an SSAE 16 (US) audit, as well as its Canadian and international counterparts, the CSAE 3416 and ISAE 3402. Often used by companies offering cloud hosting and software as a service, these audits represent an assurance to our clients that we’re meeting the standards and workflow we advertise.

We’ve created some tools to help ourselves out with development. Here are 2 that we hope you’ll find useful:
ssync — A file system mirroring tool
ssync is a linux command line tool that copies a filesystem as efficently as possible, trying to minimize both disk input/output and preserve space. It keeps incremental versions available and hard-links them so as not to duplicate space.
httpd-stat — Access Apache’s server-status
httpd-stat works with apache 1 and apache 2 and reads the shared memory segment directly to access the status info. Useful if apache is overloaded or no free connections.
Check back at our Tools page as we’ll be expanding it with more interesting tools in the near future!
If you’re reading this, you’ve probably noticed that the Gossamer Threads site has undergone a major overhaul. We’ve been working behind the scenes on our new look for quite a while now, and we’re excited to finally have the chance to show it off.
Take a look around and let us know what you think!
2007 was very good to us; we’ve acquired more employees, a new office, new clients, and are expanding at a rapid pace. Of course, more details shall be divulged in future blog posts, so stay tuned and expect to see some great things from us in 2008!
Thank you for your continued support, and from all of us at Gossamer Threads, we wish you a fantastic new year.
