XO 4.15 is out, with a beta of the load balancer, a new dashboard for the self-service, and also a nice list of new stuff:
- XenServer VM load balancing
- Migration queue for Storage XenMotion
- a complete rework of the XenServer network management (parity with XenCenter)
- better migration panel
- auto match destination networks for cross pool migration
- Citrix license status for pools
- Advanced host info (BIOS strings)
- CIFS ISO SR creation
- Delta backup support quiesce snapshots (Windows VM delta backup is now fully supported)
- SMB support for delta backup
Plus usual bug fixes (full changelog here).
This feature is working in beta so far, we need your feedback!
Network configuration reworked
You can create create pool wide networks with VLAN, make the IP configuration etc.
- We now support continuous delta backup on SMB remote shares.
- Plus, we changed our way to make delta backup to allow quiesce snapshots for Windows VM: this way, even your delta backup will be consistent!
The new technical layer for XO 5.0 web interface is ready! It's time now to focus on UI creation itself (views, styles, etc.)
We'll continue to improve the load balancing feature too (with density, halting servers with wake-on-lan and also implementing the density mode).
