Terminology:

  • Alpha - Feature that has undergone simple testing and is expected to change, possibly significantly, before going into "beta" or "general release." Recommended for early access to new features and prototyping of new deployments/architectures. Only eligible for limited technical support. Service-level response times are not applicable to Alpha components.
  • Beta - Feature that has undergone significant testing and is not expected to significantly change before "general release." Recommended for non-production deployments.
  • General release - Feature that has undergone testing and field experience or is a minor upgrade from prior releases. Recommended for production upgrade after testing. Also known as general availability (GA).

 


 

- Disclaimer -

recently_intro_icon.gifThe following new ServerTemplates have been added to the RightScale MultiCloud Marketplace. Be sure to read the documentation, follow best practice principles, and thoroughly test any new functionality before making any changes to your production deployment. 

New Features

Multiple EBS Volume Support

The Storage Toolbox and Database Managers now support the use of multiple EBS volumes for striping and other scenarios. By default, the ServerTemplates allow for up to 2 EBS volumes, but more can be added by modifying the cookbook metadata.

Support for Multiple Vhosts

There is now support for multiple virtual hosts (vhosts). Multiple vhost setup will involve creating multiple pools and configuring the load balancer to forward requests to one of these pools based on the virtual host name. This is done by simply updating the Virtual Host Names input: the first host name in this comma-separated list will be the default virtual host name, which will reply to other domains not in the list, e.g. *.test.com cases, IP and any hostname whose DNS name resolves to this IP. Having multiple load balancer server pools allows you to load balance multiple web tiers using the same load balancers.

Ability to Pull from Multiple Repository Types

There is now support to pull from multiple repository types. You have the option to specify a repository and pull from Git, SVN or Remote Object Store (Amazon Web Services S3 and Rackspace Cloud Files). 

Support for IDC Frontier

Support for IDC Frontier has been added to the Dashboard. As of this release, you may add IDC Frontier as a public cloud to your account. NOAH, IDC Frontier's IaaS Cloud service, allows you to use IT resources on demand. RightImages and core CloudStack ServerTemplates as well as ServerTemplates published by IDC Frontier are currently available in the MultiCloud Marketplace. To use IDC Frontier with RightScale, contact your account manager or sales@rightscale.com. For more information, see IDC Frontier
