  1. vCenter - More Hardware Customization options

    vCenter has more customizable hardware options than OnApp vCenter integration currently supports.

    Please post in comments of what options you would like to see in the future.

  2. Apply Time Zone Set In Wizard to Windows VM's Clock

    The timezone set in the VS creation wizard is currently not used within the OS of Windows template based VS builds. The timezone, for whatever reason defaults to UTC+2 (Helsinki). Suggestion is to apply the timezone the user sets at VS build time to the OS, reducing the number of configuration steps needed after a windows VS deployment.

  3. Improve BS selection criteria

    Currently, in cloud locations where are multiple backup servers available, OnApp tends to create a backup on a server with less running transactions (less loaded one).
    Unfortunately, there isn't any possibility to balance BS storage usage. It would be great to have a configurable option to choose BS priority method. It could be - less loaded or freer space available

  4. Unit of measurement

    Include the correct unit of measurement in control panel settings where they make sense.

    Currently some settings are presented without any units. This leads to confusion.

    For example under 'Settings > Configuration > Defaults' we find the setting: `Migration rate limit`

    Default is 10. We only know that there is a rate limit but not the context because it does not include any units of measurement. Is this 10VM total or is the network speed of 10Mbps, or maybe 10Gbps? Turns out this is 10 MB/s (the documentation here is/was also wrong and listed 10Mbps).

    For easy of use of…

  6. File Level Restores from Backups

    So currently in order to restore a single file, or a directory, or have access to the files is to convert a backup to a template, and then provision that template.

    I know there are plugins for R1Soft, and Veeam, but both of these solutions are incredibly expensive, and over all require a lot more infrastructure, and require backups to be done over the public network, or a seperate network for backups only.

    If we are able to do backups using massive Storage networks that most of us have built out, then we offload a lot of this to the…

  7. Domain custom field for WHMCS plugin

    WHMCS has built in field called domain. This field is searchable in WHMCS so we use it for the FQDN for the VPS.

    The current WHMCS plugins create the FQDN by combing the "hostname" custom field with the built in domain field. This obviously creates a bad FQDN if we are inputting the FQDN in the built in domain box.

    I would like to have a custom filed called "domain", and if its not empty to use that combined with the hostname to create the FQDN.

  8. CentOS 8 Template

    Now that CentOS 8 is available can you provide an official template for use within OnApp?

    Here is a link to the official mirror: http://mirror.centos.org/centos/8.0.1905/

  10. WHMCS OnApp VPS module bandwidth configuration

    We need to be able to set predefined bandwidth limits and to have module take action when this predefined limit is exceeded that includes warnings of limits being reached, suspension of service once reached, unsuspension of service when product/service renews, or if more bandwidth is added to vm.

  11. Define Resource Pool/Folder when adding vCenter Compute Resource Zone to Bucket

    It should be possible to define a resource pool and/or folder when adding a vCenter Compute Resource to a bucket.

    This enables customer VMs to be automatically placed into a specific resource pool/folder.

    Currently you can only define the Datacenter and Cluster during the VS Wizard or Instance Packages.

  12. Define where OVAs are stored when uploaded to a vCenter Resource

    Add ability to define where OVAs are uploaded when deploying new VMs to a vCenter compute resource.

    When an OVA is deployed to a vCenter, the OVA is first uploaded to vCenter and placed in the default resource pool with a unique identifier.

    This should be configurable on each vCenter Compute Resource, to allow you to define a resource pool and/or folder to store OnApp OVAs that are used for VM deployment.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  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. Relative links for VM resources

    It would be good to be able to specify relative links for VM resources per server - to avoid allowing customers to build servers with almost no cpu but purchase all the ram available on that compute resource for example. I could try and use min/max but it is per zone and per user so there is no way to do it per virtual server.

  19. Smart Server deployment should have the option to skip the VM deployment wizard

    You should be able to disable deploying smart servers as VMs by the end user, otherwise they could choose to create a tiny smart server that takes up a whole Hypervisor. Better to simply deploy to the entire HV and have a setting where the admin can reserve an amount for future expansion as a defult setting if they wish.

  20. Add OPNsense template

    OPNsense is a fork of pfSense (which is already available as a template in OnApp). Many of our customers would love to use OPNsense within OnApp.
    See https://opnsense.org for details.
