The following new features have been added to the RightScale Cloud Management Platform. Be sure to read the documentation, follow best practice principles, and thoroughly test any new functionality before making any changes to your production deployment.
Through the Dashboard, you may SSH into a private IP if you're using a private cloud (such as CloudStack or OpenCloud). If you opened up port 22 in the Security Group associated to your server, you will SSH into your public IP from the SSH Console. If you did not set up port 22 in your Security Group, or if you do not have a public IP, you will SSH into your private IP. If you have both a public and private IP, you can navigate to the server’s Info tab and select “SSH into IP Address” or “SSH into Private IP Address” next to the desired IP address. For more information about SSH in the RightScale Dashboard, see SSH into a Server.
Support for Rackspace Open Cloud is available in the Dashboard. Rackspace Open Cloud is Rackspace's second generation public cloud that runs on OpenStack. Use your existing credentials from Rackspace to add a Rackspace Open Cloud to your account, where RightImages and core v13.1.x Rackspace Open Cloud ServerTemplates are currently available. For information on adding this cloud to your RightScale account and more, see Rackspace Open Cloud.
RightScale now supports Provisioned IOPS for Amazon Relational Database Servers. Define an RDS Provisioned IOPS when creating a new RDS Instance through RightScale. Specify a minimum of 1,000 IOPS with 100GB up to a maximum of 10,000 IOPS with 1TB of storage for MySQL and Oracle databases at a rate of 1,000 IOPS per 100GB (for example, 1,000 IOPS per 100GB, 2,000 IOPS per 200GB, 3,000 IOPS per 300GB, etc.). If you are using SQL Servers, the maximum provision is 7,000 IOPS. For more information, see Create a New RDS Instance.
RightScale has also enhanced other RDS features, adding the ability to create RDS Subnet Groups for database instances running in a Virtual Private Cloud as well as the ability to select the VPC for RDS Security Groups.
RightScale supports Amazon Web Services second generation M3 Instance Types. These instance types provide high CPU and memory performance and are best suited for high traffic content management systems, encoding, and memcaching. For more information, see EC2 Instance Types.
Enterprise Report Manager includes a new Volume Usage report type that allows RightScale Enterprise customers to track and report against volume usage and costs across clouds. For more information, see Report Manager.
