Virtualizor 2.9.4 Launched


The Virtualizor Team has released Virtualizor 2.9.4
This version introduces some great features like VHD file support for Xenserver, Enduser Backups, Enduser ISOs and some bug fixes.
The following are the complete list of changes :

1) [Feature] We have implemented a new wizard for VPS Backups. In the new wizard, you create a Backup Plan which can be set per VPS or in a VPS Plan. Each VPS belonging to a backup plan will be backed up accordingly. The docs are as follows :

2) [Feature] The Admin can also allow endusers to make their own backups OR restore from old backups without any Admin intervention.

3) [Feature] Endusers can now install SSH Keys into their VMs from the Virtualizor Enduser Panel.

4) [Feature] One of the most awaited features for Virtualizor XenServer was support for File Disk(s) and / or VHD LVMs. In this version we have added support for the two different storage types.

5) [Feature] Virtualizor XenServer did not support migration of VPS within a cluster. This is now possible in this version of Virtualizor. VHD format is also supported.

6) [Feature] Added CPU Topology parameters for XenServer. Admins / Cloud Users can specify sockets and cores for their XenServer VMs.

7) [Feature] We have added support for PIGZ Compression. During migration and backups, if compression is enabled GZip is used to compress the files. PIGZ is a faster compression utility and uses threading.

8) [Feature] The Admin can choose to Install Xentools on the XenServer VMs in this version.

9) [Feature] We have added Disk I/O statistics in Virtualizor for all VMs. Endusers can see the Disk I/O in the Monitoring Wizard.

10) [Feature] The automatic VPS Disk usage detection which was disabled in the previous version has been re-written. Virtualizor will now read the super block of a VM and detect the disk usage. However, this will work only for EXT partition formats. It will not work for Windows or other formats. The correct disk usage will not be visible till the VM flushes / syncs the superblock to the disk.

11) [Feature] It will now be possible to backup the Virtualizor Database to a Remote location over FTP / SSH :

12) [Feature] Cloud User will now be able to create a VPS with CPU Topology.

13) [Feature] Enduser ISO : We have added the feature for enduser(s) to download and use their own ISO. This feature needs to be enabled by the Admin and limits can be set by the Admin :

14) [Feature] Its now possible to create a list of Allowed IPs for accessing the Admin Panel. Any requests from other IPs will be blocked :
