EPAM Cloud Orchestrator version 2.1.44 is released

In version 2.1.44, we are introducing the solution allowing to bring hardware resources under EPAM Orchestrator control. For that purpose, we have created a dedicated region, EPAM-HW1, intended to host hardware resources only. We have also implemented the functionality managing static IPs in EPAM regions together with the related set of commands. The Cloud Dashboard now contains the Project Management Wizard available to Project Managers and Project Coordinators and allowing to manage the project settings, such as quotas and permissions. In addition, Docker as a Service now supports Docker Registry functionality.

When working on this release, we concentrated on project management in Cloud, networking and services, but these are not the only changes.

New Features and Improvements

  • Hardware servers utilization processes are now integrated with Orchestration as dedicated instances solution
  • Networking configuration commands are implemented for EPC regions
  • Project Management Wizard is implemented to provide control over project quotas, permissions and subscriptions.
  • Docker Registry functionality is added to Docker Service
  • EPAM Private Cloud Trainings for managers and coordinators are started

News

The current update is accompanied by a number of important changes that influence not only Orchestrator functionality, but also some general practices.

  • USA-Based Regions Migration was performed.
    Due to USA Datacenter migration, both USA-based regions EPAM-US an EPAM-US1-PROD were unavailable from the evening May 29 till June 1. Currently, the migraion is successfully finished and the regions perform in standard mode.
  • Security improvements on AWS were introduced. All AWS based VMs are now accessible from EPAM locations, but are not available through other public IPs. The access check is based on public IPs, approved for locations.

    In case you need to expose an AWS VM to Internet, please, submit the Access for customers : Expose Amazon AWS server to Internet request on Service Portal. This will initiate the standard security check procedure, and if no issues are detected, the VM will be exposed to Internet.
  • Machine Images Names Changed. Following numerous requests, we simplify the names of some images available for instances creation in EPC. If you refer images in automated manipulations (scripts, stacks, etc), please, review the image names according to the table below: Old Image Name New Image name CentOS5-template CentOS5_64-bit CentOS6-template CentOS6_64-bit OracleLinux6-template OracleLinux6_64-bit Ubuntu12.04-template Ubuntu12.04_64-bit
