We proudly announce that DBaaS has now reached general availability (GA).
For our service this means that starting today September 14th, 2021:
Documentation on DBaaS has been updated and will continue to grow within the next weeks.
Also, we are currently in beta for Terraform support in the Exoscale Terraform Provider. Full support will be available in due time.
In order to improve the security of our customers, all Web Portal sessions are now limited to 24hrs, without renewal.
In order to improve the UX related to the Account and Organization management, we have modified the web Portal to clearly separate the two.
Your User Account preferences and settings are now always reachable on top right dropdown, under the "Account Details" menu voice. There is no more need to shift context to your Personal Organization to modify them. This includes:
The management of the Organizations you belong to has moved to a dedicated screen, reachable from the top right dropdown, under the "Organizations Management" menu voice.
You current context / Organization preferences and settings are under the Organization menu on the left main navigation column. Here you will find:
All of those related to your current context / Organization.
The IAM section has been expanded to regroup all access-related settings for your current context / Organization, including legacy API Access keys and Users management for the context you are in.
The latest Kubernetes releases, 1.22.1 and 1.21.4, are available on SKS.
With the latest release we also stopped supporting version 1.20.9 and previous. Only the latest two minor versions are supported from now on.
The new Debian 11 (Bullseye) Template has been released this week on the Exoscale platform.
"Bullseye" has been recently released by the Debian project after more than 2 years of development. It will be supported for the next 5 years by the Debian Team.
Additionally, the new Rocky Linux Template (Linux RedHat) has been released this week. Rocky Linux is the successor of the CentOS templates.
Like with other Exoscale official templates, Bullseye & Rocky Linux have cloud native features such as contextualisation with cloud-init or file system autogrow.
Today we released the Exoscale Flexible Storage Template.
Many available compute instance templates are specifically designed for cloud platforms and instantly available. The drawback is that many of them are based on a single partition and a predefined filesystem chosen by the vendor. This often does not fit with specific customer requirements.
The Exoscale Flexible Storage Template exactly addresses these issues. It empowers users to manage their instance's storage exactly as they need it and will enable to easier resize volumes, create further partitions or optionally implement encryption.
A Flexible Storage instance is easily created by using the Exoscale CLI.
In our documentation we give a detailed guidance on how to use the Exoscale Flexible Storage Template.
