Fresh new VMWare client, Backup logs, provision improvements, and major performance growth

 

New

 

Improvement

 

Fix

  

What's new:

  • Our fresh new VMWare client received a major improvement as we migrated to our own VMWare API. The whole process is now more secure, faster, and visible.
  • HQ's REST API now supports multiple tokens for the same IP as we added an extra HTTP header Client-ID. We also included IPv4/IPv6 ranges in the pattern format (eg. 192.168..) and in CIDR/subnet format (eg. 192.168.0.0/16) to this update.
  • Last Actions & Changes Log now works much smoother.
  • We added backup logs (sneak peek to the upcoming Backup Restore functionality πŸ‘€).
  • Implemented adding wildcard host records for DNS zones.

Improvements:

  • Device provisioning will work even better. Now it is worker-agnostic, so it won't fail if any worker's job fails.
  • Persistent storage is now being displayed in the 'newest first' order by default.
  • Updated guest VMWare tools for WAF and Load balancers.
  • Now users can add the network link for Internal IP on the Firewall page.
  • Added a way to collect the usage info through the device's ID. 

Fixes:

  • Device creation errors
  • Device selection when creating a persistent storage
  • device import
  • Invalid IP Address highlight prompt
  • Snapshot creation that produced a duplicate
  • Second HDD availability after extension
  • Subtenant reports issues
  • Service accounts problem after k8s v1.25 update
  • Not editable device if there was no network connected
  • Firewall and Load balancer creation

Improved HTML5 console, backup creation date and much more

 

New

 

Improvement

  

What’s new

  • Updated HTML console now has better symbol displaying, stable connection, and adjusted design. To ensure the proper work, please set the same keyboard layouts on the host and the VM.
  • Now we allow a higher RAM limit (64GB β†’ 128GB) when creating a new device
  • Load balancers can be created even without forwarding rules
  • Devices page now displays the latest backup creation date
  • Deleted device page will store and display all the data within
  • Usage reports now display breadcrumbs-like family trees of organizations and child organizations
  • When creating subtenants, you can assign them to one or a few clouds (requires access to these clouds)

What’s improved

  • Improved requests validations for device creation, plain and clear error messages
  • Logs now will display the correct timezone according to your account settings
  • Optimized network creation payload
  • Device info page shows info about the creator-user and related organization

A few polishings and improvements

 

Improvement

  
  • We tuned up the Billing feature and gave the DNS Zones module a thorough clean.

  • Firewall deletion is now running even more smoothly.

  • We gave our alert messages a talking-to, and they have agreed to be more clear and useful.

  • From now on, deleting the device won't leave a lone Firewall hanging out in our database. The same goes for Cluster-based Load Balancers.

  • We have tinkered with the older OS (including CentOS 7 and Ubuntu 18) provisioning scripts, and now they work much better.
