  1. 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.

  2. Keep IP assignment history

    Sometimes, it is required to be able to see the particular IP address usage history, which Virtual Server and which user the IP belonged to during certain period of time

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. Object storage

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

  9. KVM virsh console

    Add virsh console support for templates and KVM hypervisors. This would add the ability to fix the VS if there is an error in boot config or kernel image.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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..

  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. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  20. 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
