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’.

Fuga newsletter June 2016

Fuga newsletter June 2016

Fuga platform development For the past two months, we’ve started performing updates and implementing new features in bi-weekly sprints instead of longer development cycles. The results of these sprints aren’t always immediately apparent to our Fuga users, as some of them are updates for stability or preparations for future functionality. We’re developing and testing them at our test and staging environments, and roll them out into production when they’re deemed stable enough.

The twice-annual OpenStack Summit wrapped up last month in Austin, Texas. It brought together 7,500 developers, users, and other open source cloud enthusiasts from around the globe (for comparison: the very first OpenStack Summit also took place in Austin, in July 2010, and attracted 75 attendants). Our managing director Paul Bankert was present in Austin to stay closely informed on new developments and trends in OpenStack, as well as to discover what’s on the development horizon for the next OpenStack Release (Newton).
