  1. Extend OnApp's firewall abilities.

    OnApp provides an excellent firewall ability for VS. However, the current implementation is not applicable for outbound traffic.
    Please extend firewall to use it for filtering outgoing VS traffic.

  3. Maintenance Mode - Don't force a reboot

    When maintenance mode is disabled the server needs to reboot in order to return to normal use. With the improvements in v6.1 you should be able to exit maintenance mode without requiring a reboot and run the initial boot scripts.

  4. Safe delete resources

    We regularly face one issue: users or our employees under certain circumstances delete all the resources.

    Situation 1:
    user creates a server, sets the back-ups on it and everything works good. Once he decides to delete the server. All the back-up are being deleted with the server, as the user didn't read the notification that they will be deleted.

    Situation 1a:
    All the above mentioned actions are made not by the user, but by a violator, who fit or stole a password, or even by an offended contractor.

    Situation 2:
    An employee deletes the account. And after this all the…

  5. Implement existing "Boot from CD" button for SmartServer's

    If we create SmartServer from ISO (not template) there is no possibility to disable booting from ISO. Every reboot of SmartServer is boot from ISO.

    Click on "Boot from CD" button on SmartServers page does not cause an action, like in VirtualServer.

    Same steps applied for VirtualServer cause a change in booting order.

    Current solution for disable iso boot is manual change in the database.

  6. Make default port speed configurable.

    Currently, the default port speed defaults to 1mpbs. This causes a lot of problems with users who skip configuring this. It would be helpful if we could set the default to a high number.

  7. Allow sellers to move non-federated VMs between local federated zones using cloud motion.

    It would be useful to be able to utilize the existing Cloud Motion feature to migrate internal VMs between different locations in OnApp.

  8. Add IPv6 range to Virtual Server

    Ability to add IPv6 ranges or blocks to the particular Virtual Server instead of having to add them on by one. Consider adding possibility to specify block size.

  10. Improve KVM VM firewall settings

    Would like the improve the KVM firewall features:
    1. Firewall Rule Templates
    It would be nice if you could create firewall rule templates and apply these templates to a virtual machine's firewall settings. This would make it easy to setup complex rule sets that will be in use for multiple servers. All you would need to do is modify the rule set and apply it to any number of virtual machines automatically. Also, updating the rule set should automatically update the firewall rules for any virtual machine to which it is applied. As part of configuring the firewall rules, it…

  11. Windows License Per Core Usage - Software License Reporting

    Since SPLA has changed to cost per core vs cost per CPU, it is necessary to display core count vs virtual machine count under Software Licenses.

  12. Improve Management for Basic Edge Gateways

    OnApp allows managing some Basic Edge services (NAT, Firewall and VPN).

    Add a possibility to manage all services (including Distributed Logical Routing) via OnApp

    List of services to add - DHCP, Static Routing, Load Balancer.

  13. Provide an ability to disable or hide certain IP address within an existing IP range.

    In some cases, we need to reserve ( hide or make disabled ) a single IP or multiple such IPs in the existing range. This is useful to prevent picking chosen IPs during new server creation. Applicable to some IPs which are temporarily not usable due to been blocked by spam defenders or attacked by a botnet.

  14. Support for 4Kn sector size HDD drives natively for static HVs

    Currently, OnApp does not support 4Kn sector size HDD drives for Static Hypervisors, and we need to do a workaround for OnApp to use 4Kn sector size drives.

    This workaround is to have the OS detect the drive via local ISCSI.

    This has major drawbacks that affect production systems which are

    1. Degrades IOPS
    2. ISCSI links get overloaded too often causing the Hypervisor to hang all virtual machines, dropping the storage links.
    3. IO is very expensive, this method degrades it more

    Hope OnApp supports this so we can let go of using ISCSI for local storage just to…

  15. Make Smart Servers Smart

    Smart Servers as things stand, aren't really that smart. They are barely different from Bare Metal servers in any useful sense.

    When deploying Smart Servers we should have the option of using NIC passthrough or not. If we chose not to use it, then we should retain the very useful features of Firewall and bandwidth monitoring.

    Without this it becomes very tedious to monitor bandwidth over a fleet of Smart Servers - we'd have to monitor when a machine changes HV, change the mapping of switch port to server in our billing platform (taking in to account the bandwidth already…

  16. Make LVM snapshot size configurable for backups

    Currently, when a backup is created, a LVM snapshot of the disk is made. This snapshot has the same size as the original.

    This means you need to leave a *lot* of free space on each data store. Since a backup will complete in a relatively short amount of time, the snapshot will never fill for more than a few percent.

    So, I'd like to have smaller LVM snapshots when taking backups. Perferably a configurable percentage of the original disk size.

    --

    Lvm snapshot`s Create as full disk size. One moment 3-4 backup from one storage used 500-700 GB and…

  17. Add Smart server support to WHMCS module

    Smart servers aren't supported on the WHMCS module - for a provider selling both this causes issues with UX.

  18. Speedup auto backups by using existing instances of daily backups for weekly, monthly, yearly copies.

    If there is configured a daily backups schedule, successfully created daily backup can be easily turned in to copies of other longer periods. No need wasting time and resources for creating separate instances executing weekly, monthly or yearly schedules. Just use existing daily copy instead of removing it on next turn.

  19. RAM price in GB

    Migrate RAM prices to GB instead of MB. If we want to convert MB to GB then 1/1024 comes out to be 0.0009765625 which is 10 decimal points which breaks OnApp precision hard limit which is set to 8.

  20. Integrated storage features on virtual machine overview page

    It would be helpful if the virtual machine overview page had some alerts if the underlying disks were, for example, not optimised for local read path or degraded and the ability to balance/resync were possible as currently it's a fairly complicated process to find where the VM would need to be placed to re-gain its local read path and the 'migrate virtual machine' option does not always place by default to a local read path HV.
