If you use Binder to serve your Jupyter notebooks you will be interested in this.
Have a repository full of Jupyter notebooks? With Binder, open those notebooks in an executable environment, making your code immediately reproducible by anyone, anywhere
We flipped the switch on making mybinder.org 6 a federation. This means that there are now two clusters that serve requests for mybinder.org 6. What changes for you as a user? Hopefully nothing. You will notice that if you visit mybinder.org 6 (or any other link to it) you will be redirected to gke.mybinder.org 1 or ovh.mybinder.org 5. Beyond that small change everything should keep working as before
This should mean that Binder becomes more robust and not susceptible to outages. Now this is in place it should also be possible to add further server resources.
