Release: Cloud.com CloudStack 2.2

Posted by Kenneth van Surksum   |   Thursday, March 31st, 2011   |  

Cloud.com has released version 2.2. of its open source cloud architecture CloudStack. Despite the fact that Cloud.com and Microsoft announced support for Hyper-V in October last year, expected to be released in Q1 2011 as reported by cloudcomputing.info, the support didn’t made it into this release of CloudStack though.

Although Cloud.com did a lot of work to get Hyper-V supported in OpenStack in October last year, the code didn’t make it into the mainstream branch, until the release of Bexar. Cloud.com states that in the next few months, it will be implementing and integrate much of the OpenStack compute code into their platform, including the support for Hyper-V.

Among other updates, CloudStack 2.2 includes:

  • New AJAX-enabled User Interface
  • Support for VMware ESX, Citrix XenServer and live migration of KVM instances across resource groups.
  • Enhanced API – enabling extensive information queries about the hypervisor, virtualized guests, networking, storage and security.
  • Increased Networking Features like the bility to add more than one range of public IP addresses; link-local addressing is now used to communicate to the virtual router, reducing the use of private IP addresses in the CloudStack and improving security.
  • Improvements to the storage capabilities – enabling highly available VMs to be supported for iSCSI primary storage, as well as report for secondary storage capacity from the CloudStack web interface.
