Fuga platform maintenance 23 February

Fuga platform maintenance 23 February

This notification concerns scheduled maintenance on the Fuga platform which will take place on Tuesday 23 February from 00:01 until 04:00 CET.

Google and Red Hat have released a patch for a critical security vulnerability in the widely used GNU C library (glibc). The leak allows an attack, whereby, through a stack-based buffer overflow, arbitrary code can be executed.

More information about the vulnerability can be found here: https://access.redhat.com/security/cve/cve-2015-7547

Due to the seriousness of this issue, we have decided to patch this vulnerability during a maintenance window scheduled ahead of our regular maintenance windows. During maintenance, all nodes within the Fuga platform will receive a reboot, resulting in a short downtime of instances running on it. There may also be short disruptions to connectivity while we patch and reboot networking components.

Get started with the OpenStack CLI and API

There are three ways to interact with your Fuga OpenStack environment: through the Horizon web interface, using the OpenStack CLI tools and directly from your application using a RESTful API. Using Horizon is by far the easiest, but also the most restrictive in terms of possible automation. Using the CLI tools gives you more options, and the most possibilities can be gained by directly interacting with the API from within your application.

Improved performance and more features
