Happy new year! And happy new release :) This one add 2 major things: continuous replication and continuous delta backup for your XenServer hosts. Without having any extra hardware or software to install, only with Xen Orchestra.
VM Continuous replication
Protect your VMs by streaming them to another Storage every 10 minutes (or more). This target storage can be local or inside any distant XenServer host!
Note: it works since for XenServer 6.5
Continuous Delta backup
It means to backup by exporting full disks once for all. Indeed, after this initial export, we'll manage to only use delta blocks forever!
This feature also works since XenServer 6.5
Multiple VM creation
Create spawn a bunch of VMs just with one click!
Want to see it in action? Check our complete blog post.
Just after clicking on "Create VM", you can choose to boot it automatically. Very useful, and it helps to give you an operational VM is less than 30 secs!
We also made a lot of small improvements, bug fixes and stuff. The full changelog is available here.
We'll continue to improve the UI and try to release a first self service portal for 4.13. Which should be one of the latest before XO 5.0!
