The OnApp Cloud 6.5 provides new features and improvements. You can find the list of all key enhancements at Release Notes.
We updated the user interface with the new look and feel for a number of pages. This version of the user interface is aimed to improve the user experience.
Upgraded the software-defined networking management with the improvements:
- Possibility to edit SDN network;
- Validation for SDN managers host IP;
- Possibility to set transit IP.
Now it is possible to hide SAML login buttons from the login page at Settings > Authentication > New SAML ID Provider button.
VMware Cloud Director Version 10.3
VMware Cloud Director and OnApp version 6.6 Stable is compatible with VMware Cloud Director 10.3
Veeam V11 Support for vCenter and vCloud
We started to support the latest Veeam version for vCenter and vCloud, Veeam 11, which protects against ransomware.
Windows vCenter VS
Now you have the possibility to build virtual server in vCenter based on Windows 10 template. We have also improved the scripts responsible for vCenter Windows-based virtual server configuration. As a result, the provisioning time is reduced by approximately 40-50%.
NSX-T and NSX-V Edge Gateway Networks
Improved the functionality of NSX-T and NSX-V edge gateway networks. Starting from 6.6 version:
- All the charges for edge gateway sub-allocated IPs are synchronized with billing to keep your invoices updated.
- Edge gateway sub-allocated IPs are reported under an external network.
- When the NSX-T edge gateway is imported from vCloud, the IP settings are imported as well. Accordingly, all changes in vCloud regarding the IP settings are synced with OnApp.
The rate limits for NSX-V edge gateways are accessible via API. You can use them if you want to create custom billing scripts.
Virtual Server Disks
- Configurable Snapshot Size
Before OnApp 6.6, the snapshot to be taken to backup virtual disk occupied 10% of the virtual disk size in the data store. Thus, in order to make a backup, you should have had a free space of at least 10% of virtual disk size at nodes where virtual disk is allocated. Starting from 6.6, you can configure this size of a snapshot according to virtual disk size in info_hub.yml file.
- Virtio Mode
We added the possibility to enable or disable virtio mode when editing the disks of Windows-based virtual servers, application servers, ISO virtual servers, OVA virtual servers, and smart servers if the templates these servers are built on support kvm_virtio.
Force Windows Auto-Backups is a new option that enhances the backup taking progress for Windows VSs. In particular, it takes the raw disk image backups and can be used as an extreme measure when the backup cannot be taken due to NTFS file system problems.
Cloning KVM-based virtual server option now allows you to change the hostname, password, and label from the original VS.
