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.
Updating the inputs of current running servers was previously restricted to the server level. This functionality has been extended to allow bulk updates to current inputs at the deployment level. This is beneficial for deployments that contain hundreds of servers. Update selected inputs on multiple running servers at once without having to re-launch. You can then run scripts across the deployment using these new input values. Use this feature to edit inputs for 'current' servers as well as 'next' servers. For more information, see Update Inputs of Multiple Running Servers.
RightScale supports the newest version of CloudStack 3.0 with the addition of support for new Acton features. For more information, see CloudStack or contact your account manager.
RightScale now supports Rackspace Managed Cloud Servers in private beta. Rackspace Managed Cloud Servers consists of dedicated support and customized architecture and service solutions tailored to your requirements. Use our Rackspace Managed Cloud Servers to combine dedicated OS-level service from Rackspace with the powerful cloud management tools of the RightScale platform. For more information about participating in this private beta, contact your account manager or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Recurring Volume Attachments is the newest feature added to the RightScale 1.5 API. Use this feature to attach generic volumes at boot. For more information about this and other components of the API, see RightScale API 1.5.
Tags can now be set so servers are addressable across multiple deployments throughout an account. Previously, servers could only address other servers by tag within the same deployment. This enhancement allows for servers to utilize similar inputs across multiple deployments. To use this feature, set Server tag scope to 'account' instead of 'deployment' on the info tab of your deployment. For more information, see Use Tags Across Deployments.
The dialog boxes and pop-ups in the RightScale Dashboard have been enhanced with new, sleeker, modal dialog boxes. This improved UI feature makes for a more pleasurable user experience by enhancing a frequently-used component of the UI.
For security groups, when creating a permission, the default IPs field is 0.0.0.0/0 in order to accept web traffic from any network. The previous default was 0.0.0.0/32.
