Access Control Lists (ACLs) tab in the new FireEdge Sunstone

This new release comes with a number of new features:

  • Virtual Routers Enhancements: Virtual Routers now come with a new FLOATING_ONLY attribute for network NICs. When enabled (yes), no additional IPs will be allocated to the VMs of the Virtual Router, streamlining network configurations.
  • VM Rescheduling Update: For VMs marked with the resched flag, we’ve now added the HOST_ID parameter to the External Scheduler API, offering more precise control over VM scheduling.
  • PCI Passthrough Devices: A new operation now allows for the attachment/detachment of PCI passthrough devices when VMs are powered off or undeployed. This advanced feature is accessible through both the API and CLI in the 6.8.2 release.
  • Python Binding Custom Attributes: We’ve expanded the Python binding to support custom attributes, enhancing automation and integration capabilities.
  • Fireedge Sunstone Updates:
    • Cluster Management: The new Cluster tab in Fireedge Sunstone makes managing your clusters easier than ever.
    • Access Control Lists (ACLs): With the addition of the ACL tab, managing permissions is now more intuitive.
    • Virtual Network Templates: The Virtual Network Templates Tab brings streamlined management to your network configurations.
