Foreshadow vulnerabilities

Last Thursday Intel published details regarding three vulnerabilities presented in certain Intel processors. These vulnerabilities are identified as CVE-2018-3615 (for SGX) , CVE-2018-3620 (for operation systems and SMM) and CVE-2018-3646 (for virtualization) . At Fuga Cloud we utilize Intel CPU architectures to provide our customers with a compute platform. And as many other cloud providers, Fuga Cloud may be affected by these vulnerabilities. Solution In order to be protected against these vulnerabilities, it's necessary that the operation system as well as the hypervisor and the CPU microcode of the physical server are provided with updates.

Vulnerabilities in multiple CPU architectures (updated Jan, 18th)

Update Jan 18th This morning, January 18th at 06:00 CET, the implementation of the security patch for our network controllers didn’t go as expected. After patching and restarting the control layer at 07:15 CET, networking encountered a bug. It took us until 08:13 CET to get networking operational. From this point on, there were no issues with running services, however, our API backend remained unstable until 13:15 CET. The timeline is available on our status page.

Third availability zone released

Third availability zone released

We’ve created a third availability zone named eu-west-1c in our region for you to use. Why should I use three zones? Using three zones is recommended to create an optimal multi-site failover cluster. Network problems can cause serious issues between cluster nodes. When a subset of nodes is unable to communicate with one another but continue to operate independently, data can become out of sync. To prevent this “split brain” situation a quorum, majority vote, is established authorising only one subset of nodes to continue operations, providing safe automatic failover.
New availability zone released

New availability zone released

Next week, we’re finally fulfilling a promise long overdue. We’re delivering a new availability zone for the Fuga platform. As part of the preparation of a new Fuga region in our second data center, we’ve done a lot of work on our network configuration. Part of these changes is a rename of the current region to eu-west-1 and creating two new availability zones: eu-west-1a and eu-west-1b. These will replace the current zone ams, which will be phased out.
OpenStack Mitaka upgrade completed

OpenStack Mitaka upgrade completed

As mentioned in our OpenStack Mitaka upgrade liveblog the compute node upgrade was postponed. We’re happy to announce that we’ve finished the full process, without any significant downtime. As a result of this upgrade the Fuga platform is now completely upgraded to the OpenStack Mitaka release. With this upgrade we took the last step to enable live migrations so we can narrow the impact on the availability during future maintenance windows.
Load Balancer functionality is now live

Load Balancer functionality is now live

We’re happy to announce that today we’ve removed the beta label for the load balancer functionality in the dashboard, meaning we have officially taken it into production and can offer official support. The Fuga load balancer functionality allows you to quickly create HTTP, HTTPS or TCP based load balancing pools, add member servers to them and configure monitors to define failovers. If you haven’t used the functionality yet, you can find it in the Horizon dashboard under ‘Network’ -> ‘Load Balancers’.
