  1. Full Backup Download

    Ability to create, download and upload full VM backups for multiple reasons.

    On the one hand, if a new OnApp version is released, we would like to download and keep the necessary VMs safe and then upload them again to the new version.

    On the other hand, our customers could kepp their VMs safe wherever they want without the need to trust our backup systems fully.

  2. File Level Backup Restore

    The Linux backups are already stored uncompressed. You should provide a feature to restore specific files or directories within the backup instead of requiring a full server restore.

  3. Kubernetes (K8S) support

    Kubernetes support needs a different approach than standard VS operations. Here are the required functionalities.

    1. Default current image for Rancher, CoreOS, Centos Atomic (The images needs to be downloaded directly from the repos, no need to keep the image disks). No backup no setting IP is required for the VM's you only need to mount CD with cloudinit script so the VM will have the required parameters. (ip, hostname, key, user, pass)
    2. CloudINIT support (edit cloudinit config for image operations)
    3. flexVolume support by onapp, so persistent disks can be provided to the pods,
    4. ability to use…

  4. Nested multi-tenancy

    The ability to provide isolated set of resources to multiple customers (tenants) from a single infrastructure. Each tenant has its own admin-like access to compute, storage, and networking, and the ability to customize the look and feel.
    Each tenant can further subdivide resources to sub-tenants with isolation maintained.

  5. Firewall Groups

    Create the templates of firewall rules and let the templates be arranged into groups. The groups can be later applied to virtual machines.

  6. Dedupe on backup servers using VDO

    VDO is now supported as a production feature as of RHEL 7.5. Including it in the cloudboot images would provide native filesystem level dedupe for backup servers, which is a feature that's desperately needed. As VMs are built of a small set of templates, dedupe of the vdisks should have a huge effect on storage requirements. Can you please look at including VDO support in 6.0 LTS.

  7. QCOW2 or RAW image disk files

    storing the files in qcow2,raw,vmdk file format would be really good and beneficial for our operations, than we can use NFS or Local storages for VS disks..

  8. swap partition to local disks

    would be perfect to have the option to store the Swap partition to local disks,
    Like you create a VM and you give 40GB root partition 8 GB Swap partition on the beginning, would be really perfect if we can assign the local resources for the swap partition(not using the storage)
    since live migration on datastore are available this should not be a big problem..

  9. Virtual Server Groupping

    Create and manage multiple virtual servers as a whole. This might include the following:
    - Ability to spin up more then one server during the VS creation wizard
    - Group the VS together with a custom name
    - Group by function type, for example web servers, DB servers, etc.
    - Group by application, for example Web1 + Web2 + DB1 + DB2 + LoadBalancer1 + LoadBalancer2 + Redis1 + Redis2

  10. Improved stats for larger end users

    We have a number of customers where we allocate them a block of resources and they create whatever VMs they want with those resources, their own cloud so to speak. That can be with resources from our HVs or dedicated HVs for the customer.

    Unfortunately there are some basics missing to allow this to work nicely for customers, such as seeing how much disk space they've used from each Data Store they are assigned space on. There's just not enough visibility for lager users in to the resources they have and how they are using them.

  11. Toggle to not bill suspended VM

    There should be an option to not continue billing a suspended VM while it is powered off.

    Currently if you set billing for an offline resource and the VM is suspended it will continue to rack up costs even though the user is suspended.

    I suggest there is an option available to zero out the rate card for suspended VMs so that when they are renewed they do not have to backpay for resources during the suspension.

  12. User should be able to distribute own templates to other Compute Zones/Regions

    We have two main Compute Zones/Regions (different Datacenters/ISPs). Each zone has it own Backup Zone attached. When user builds VM within Zone 1 he's able to make backups and own templates for further deployments within Zone 1. But he's unable to create VM within Zone 2 based on template from Zone 1. Template image doesn't exist in Zone 2.

    Please provide the way for User to distribute own templates between Zones (like do.co snapshots -> snapshot -> add to region) for further deployments.

  14. Breakdown billing stats by vApp

    Display the billing stats breakdown by vApp or by VM by resource. This means that it is reported how many CPUs, RAM, disk size etc resources have been used in each hour by particular vApp on a resource pool.
