Apache CloudStack 4.0.2 Released!

Posted by on in Cloud News

square-cloudmonkey(This is the official release announcement text for the 4.0.2 release. You can also find it on the Apache CloudStack blog, but I wanted to make sure we spread the news far and wide. Congrats to the project on another successful release!) 

The Apache CloudStack project is pleased to announce the 4.0.2 release of the CloudStack Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) cloud orchestration platform. This is a minor release in the 4.0.0 branch, which contains fixes for 40 bugs.

Apache CloudStack is an integrated software platform that allows users to build a feature-rich IaaS. CloudStack includes an intuitive user interface and rich API for managing the compute, networking, accounting, and storage for private, hybrid, or public clouds. The project entered the Apache Incubator in April 2012, and graduated in March 2013.

The 4.0.2 release includes fixes for a number of issues, including two minor security vulnerabilities (CVE–2013–2756 and CVE–2013–2758), problems displaying storage statistics, a fix for the SSVM HTTP proxy, support for CentOS 6.4, and other fixes.

XCP support coming to CloudStack in the next release

Posted by on in Open Source

XCP has, in a very short time, become one of the preferred hypervisors in the CloudStack community, and for good reason. XCP has a number of features that eclipse even some of the paid editions of XenServer, and all with no annual need to reacquire even the free license code.

The XCP project recently announced the release of version 1.1, which has continued to generate a lot of interest and questions about when CloudStack will support it.  To keep pace with the rapid development cycle of XCP, CloudStack recently merged in code to support XCP 1.1 and that should appear in the next release of CloudStack. Of course, if you want to play with it today, you can always build from source.

The potential for XCP (and the sister Project Kronos which releases XAPI, or the Xen API, as a package that can be included in Linux Distributions) is exciting, and I hope to see XCP and Project Kronos drive a lot of the innovation around Xen and open source virtualization in the coming months.
