80legs has launched!!

The day is finally here!  We are now live, beta has exited, 1.0 is a go!

Before I go any further, I want to thank the many beta users that helped us over the last several months by providing feedback, suggestions for improvements, and identifying bugs.  Without your help, we wouldn’t have been able to get 80legs to where it is today.

During the private beta, we were working on several features, all of which are now ready for public use.  These features are:

  • True web-scale crawling: crawl up to 2 billion pages per day
  • Usability: easily and design your own crawls using an intuitive job form
  • 80Apps: write and run your own applications on over 50,000 computers
  • API: programmatically control 80legs to work for you

There’s also one big change that comes with leaving beta – 80legs is no longer completely free to use.  Our pricing is now in effect.  You can still dip your toes in the water and run jobs that crawl less than 100 pages.

We are doing our official launch announcement at DEMO.  If you happen to be at the show, please come and visit us at pavilion station #2!
