+We have some great news for you today: Last weekend we finally switched all
+builds on <http://travis-ci.org> to our new build infrastructure. This setup not
+only gives you more processing power (1.5 cores per build) and twice as much
+memory (3 GB), it runs in container-virtualized hardware and directly off SSDs.
+It's also a 64bit platform with the option of supporting 32bit environments as
+well!

+
+All this has been made possible by our amazing partner, [Blue
+Box](https://bluebox.net), who have provided us with a customized private cloud
+setup, tailored specifically for our needs as a hosted continuous integration
+platform.
+
+This new platform allows us to do many things a lot better than with our
+previous, manually managed VirtualBox setup. We can easily add more capacity as
+we grow (and boy, we've grown a lot over the last months!), and we can provision
+updates to our build environments a lot faster than before, allowing us to
+provision new language releases, framework updates and service additions much
+quicker than before.
+
+We're pretty psyched about this new partnership, it's great news for the open
+source community as we can follow the build demand a lot better than before and
+update the build environment much faster too. We can also leave the
+infrastructure management parts in the amazing hands of the Blue Box team and
+focus on shipping new features.
+
+You should give Blue Box a nice high five next time you meet someone from their
+awesome team. They're amazing folks to work with, and we're looking forward to
+working closely with them to push Travis CI forward!

+
+We're in the process of rolling this out for our customers on
+<http://travis-ci.com> as well, stay tuned!
+
+Make sure to read the official [press release](https://bluebox.net/press-releases/travis-ci) too!
+
+Thanks Blue Box, you're awesome!
