On behalf of the entire team here at CloudBolt, I’m excited to announce the release of CloudBolt C2 version 3.7.0.
We continue to pull out all of the development stops in CloudBolt C2. This latest version adds numerous improvements, and new features to help reduce the burden of IT and cloud management.
Amazon Web Services (AWS) support continues to strengthen. Now, CloudBolt C2 will auto-create region-specific environments based on administrator-selected regions for EC2. C2 will also list out the various AMIs admins want to make accessible to their users. The best part is that this will work for any EC2-provided AMI, as well as customer-specific AMIs. C2 also now provides for richer discover of running instances in EC2, so the server list and individual server views in C2 contain even more information about the related EC2 instance. Keep your eyes peeled, because we’re going to continue adding capabilities to the AWS connector.
We believe that Network Virtualization from folks like Nicira by VMware will drastically change how IT organizations manage enterprises. Our engineers have now enabled Network Virtualization support in the KVM connector, meaning administrators can now create and deploy virtualized networks on KVM-backed hosts using CloudBolt C2.
One powerful aspect of CloudBolt C2 is that is it’s ability to apply actions to systems cross-environment. Part of what was needed here was a multi-select capability that allowed users to multi-select where it makes sense to do so. C2 now supports multi-select in the appropriate dialog boxes.
Provisioning instances is what CloudBolt C2 was built to do. When a user has no knowledge of what’s going on behind the scenes, it’s good practice to at least let them know that something is happening. With 3.7.0, C2 does a better job showing users the provisioning progress of their instance.
