  1. Integrated Storage on Cloudboot Backup Server

    In the 6.1 release notes there is this entry.

    CORE-14009 | Now you can run Integrated Storage on the backup servers.

    In our tests we were unable to use integrated storage with cloudboot backup servers.

    According to the documentation it seems as if this is only available on static boot backup servers: https://docs.onapp.com/agm/latest/backup-settings/backup-servers-settings/manage-backup-servers-devices

    You should add support for cloudboot backup servers to be able to assign disks to integrated storage as well.

  2. 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…

  3. Advanced monitoring

    Functionality to get, keep and show in real time the stats from the compute resource

    Compute resource level:

    - CPU: Total Available & Total Utilized
    - Memory: Total Available, Total Utilized, Ballooning amount

    Virtual Server level:

    - CPU: Total Utilized on the hypervisors
    - Memory: Total Utilized on the hypervisors.

    Ability to select metrics and period for which to show it.

  4. Thin provision - trim for integrated storage

    We miss the opportunity to do real thin provisioning towards integrated storage. As for today a disk can only grow in size and empty space is never reclaimed for the storage.

  6. 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.

  7. XEN to KVM migration

    Possibility to migrate a Virtual Server from XEN to KVM as KVM is having more features and usually showing better performance.

  8. Ability to lock or suspend individual VMs

    As a System Administrator I would like the ability to be able to lock a VM in a particualr power state to prevent a user from powering a VM on once it is shutoff.

    Currently the only way to prevent a user from powering on a shutdown VM is to suspend the user, however, suspending a user shuts down all their VMs.

  9. Object storage

    Object storage as a service. All new web apps are using object storage. Would be an easy sell to end users.

  10. 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..

  11. Terraform Provider

    Be able to deploy to OnApp based infrastructure using Terraform with OnApp as a provider.
    This will be great for our customers who are looking to deploy "cloud native" and automate their infrastructure. Helps us compete with AWS/Azure/GCP.

  12. Change scheduled backup times

    Currently, backups are scheduled to start at the time of day they were scheduled. To modify this, you need to alter the start_at field to the day and time that you would like the backup to queue next, in the schedules table. See this KB item for the workaround:
    https://help.onapp.com/hc/en-us/articles/222047068-How-to-change-scheduled-backup-times-

    This should be implemented in the Control Panel.

  13. Autoscale vCPU

    Currently, there is no option to autoscale vCPUs. It would be extremely valuable to have the option to autoscale cpu depending on usage, similar to memory and disk.

  14. 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.

  15. 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..

  16. Put VMs in suspended state when a User is suspended. Do not stop VM.

    We would like the VMs of suspended users not to be stopped, but instead suspended.

    The reason for this is when a user runs out of credits, the user is suspended and their VM is powered off. However when they add credits, the VM stays powered off. This results in angry clients and extra support tickets to investigate and start their server again.

    Please change this to make VMs be put in a suspended state when a user is suspended and have VMs unsuspended when the user adds more credits.

    KVM supports this via "virsh suspend and resume"

    API Call…

  17. Automatically place VMs on the "right" hypervisor

    In a service provider environment users have no idea how many VMs are on a hypervisor or what the CPU load on the hypervisor is, how much RAM is available on the hypervisor, or any other information about the hypervisor in the OnApp UI so it's really silly that they have to pick which HV to place their VMs on. They pretty much always pick whatever one shows up in the dropdown first. OnApp should just collect metrics on the situations in the hypervisors and then auto-place the VMs based upon those metrics.

  18. Timed Actions in OnApp

    The user should have the ability to create cronjob like timed actions in OnApp. Ability to define Date/Time and associated to, but not limited to, actions such as:

    - Powering VMs On/Off
    - Running Service Add-ons
    - Running Recipes

  19. ISO image for static hypervisors

    We should have a downloadable ISO image that we can use to quickly install static hypervisors without having to build an OS separately and running an RPM installer.

  20. nested virtualisation

    is it possible that we enable nested virtualisation for The VM's.. On the hypervisor we can create that but when the VM's are created Onapp is using its own templates for VM's..
    why it is needed..
    * provisioning tests
    * testing Hypervisors
