Virtualizor 2.9.6 Launched (Stable Release)


The Virtualizor Team has released Virtualizor 2.9.6
In this version we have added some revolutionary features like Cloud Billing system, CEPH storage and many more.
Here is the change list :

1) [Feature] Virtualizor will now have the capability to do all invoicing via our new Cloud Billing feature. A user can register an account and add funds into his / her account. The user can then create VMs and delete them at his will.
We have also added HOURLY BILLING support and all this can be done from the Virtualizor Panel itself.
Please refer to the following guide for setting up Cloud billing :
NOTE: Cloud Billing is in public Beta.

Also, the enduser experience for cloud billing has been documented :

2) [Feature] Added CEPH storage support. Here is the guide to setup CEPH cluster and use it in Virtualizor :

3) [Feature] Added Migrate Master utility so that you can elect any slave as a new Master OR shift the Master Only Node to a new Node :

4) [Feature] Added support for migration of VMs from OpenVZ 6 to OpenVZ 7. You can now migrate your old OpenVZ 6 to the new OpenVZ 7 platform.

5) [Feature] Now while rebuilding the VM or Reinstalling the OS from the Enduser panel, only primary disk will be formatted if “Format Primary disk” is checked. By default it will format all the disks of the VM.

6) [Feature] Added integrity check for Remote Backups. This will ensure that the backup was completed successfully and correctly.

7) [Feature] Now Virtualizor supports Backup / Restore of VMs with Multiple disk(s). Previously it was taking backup of Primary disk only.

8) [Feature] Virtio disk driver option added for Proxmox KVM. This gives better disk I/O for VMs.

9) [Feature] Template creation added for Openvz 7 VMs and CTs.

10) [Feature] Backup features added for OpenVZ 7 VMs and CTs.

11) [Feature] Now TC rules on OpenVZ VMs will be applied on live VM.

12) [Feature] Admins can set the email notification threshold for bandwidth usage of VMs as well. However, the enduser threshold will be given first preference.

13) [Feature] Users can now specify a email notification threshold for bandwidth usage of their VMs. By default it will be 80% for all VMs.

14) [Feature] Added setting in Admin Panel to disable VGA option in VPS configuration wizard in Enduser Panel. It can
be disabled from Admin Panel -> Master setting -> Enduser Settings section -> Disable VGA option

15) [Feature] Added IPv6 network throttling for all virtualizations. Speed capping will be applied to IPv6 as well.

NOTE : On Current running VMs / CTs Admin need to execute the following command manually on each server to avoid issues.

root# /etc/init.d/zzvirtservice restart

Above command will remove the old TC rules and rewrite the rules for existing VMs / CTs on the server.

16) [Feature] Secondary ISO support added for OpenVZ 7 KVM VMs.

17) [Feature] Added option to add a NOTE for an IP Address. Admin can add a note for any IP Addresses from the Admin Panel -> List IPs -> Edit any IP -> There you will find the field for adding a note for that IP.

18) [Feature] Added Timezone selection option for VMs from Enduser Panel -> VPS configuration -> Select VPS Timezone. This will require stop and start of the VPS.

19) [Feature] Now IP Pools can be selected while making VPS Plans. This will enable Admins to select particular IPs for particular regions.

20) [Task] Now IPv6 subnet(s) will have correct netmask prefix and routing options if a VPS has only IPv6 subnet(s) assigned to it.

21) [Task] Cron emails sent to the Admin will have the server Hostname with IP address in any email wherever applicable.

26) [Task] From version 2.9.6 if VM fails to suspend, Virtualizor will power off the VMs.

27) [Task] Added Storage Overcommit handler for OLD WHMCS module. This was causing the issue for those users who are still using OLD WHMCS (V1) Module. For this users need to update the WHMCS module.
