  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.

  4. 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.

  5. Maintenance Mode - VM migration & return

    When we enable maintenance mode it moves all the VMs to other hypervisors which is great.
    However when we disable maintenance mode we would like it if those VMs would move back.
    It makes logic sense after doing HV reboots/upgrades to move the VMs back.

  6. disable SWAP partition choice (make it optional)

    All other Public Cloud providers (AWS,GCP,Azure,DigitalOcean) are creating VM's without Swap partitions,
    if needed swap files can be created inside the VM.

  7. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. Set default network zone

    I want to see a new option to set a default network zone.

    The " problem" now is if I create a new VS it's completely random which network zone is selected.

    I want to set in advance (default) a network zone. So if I create a new VS I know upfront which network zone is chosen.

  16. Introduce warnings about template upgrades

    A lot of customers are not doing regular template upgrades, the upgrade screen is hidden, it would be a good idea to warn about available template upgrades on the dashboard or anywhere you see fit.

  17. Importing OVAs for vCenter requires up to 3x the size of the OVA to import successfully.

    Aside from the configurable directory for storing templates, there is no way to specify which directory to use as temporary storage while it attempts to extract/convert the OVA. If you have a separate disk for the OnApp application and files, it defaults to using /tmp on the / file system for extracting/converting the OVA file. It would be preferred to have the tmp directory used for such processes to be within the OnApp installation directly instead of in /tmp which fills up the / file system.

  19. 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.
