The big release for this month is the availability of Xen Orchestra proxies for production environment! We also improved the self-service and the OVA format import in Xen Orchestra. On other news, we also reached 100.000 downloads for XCP-ng!
Xen Orchestra proxies
If you are a Premium edition customer for Xen Orchestra, one XO proxy is available for free in your edition!
Xen Orchestra proxies are now available. The main usecase for using XO proxy is:
- Having a distant location in which you want to perform backup
- Having a very large VMs infrastructure, and therefore, a large number of backup job and you want to increase performances by splitting the data load.
We wrote a complete blogpost dedicated to the new XO proxy product and the subscription process for it.
If you are interested into the conception and the way XO proxies are working, you can also take a look on our Devblog on the topic.
The Proxies logs are coming in a patch release next week!
Additionally to the relase, we will also introduce a logs feature for backup achieved using Xen Orchestra proxies. Logs will be a very useful tools for our developers team, especially when delivering support in user infrastructure.
Italian language support
Thanks to @Infodavide on Github, the Italian language support is now available in Xen Orchestra.
💡 To select your language in Xen Orchestra you simply need to go in your profile section.
We improved the self-service features by adding the ability to a user in such environement to create and manage snapshot.
⚠ Snapshots created this way will consume the quota allocated to the user.
Better OVA import
OVA is a very standard format among the virtualization industry (eg. Vmware, Oracle...)
We fixed some issues that were occuring sometimes during an OVA import making the whole import process more reliable in this new Xen Orchestra release. It should be easier now to migrate infrastructure from VMware to XCP-ng.
New XO documentation!
We revamped our official documentation, which is far easier to read, and more clear. Also with a working research bar!
