Changelog 21st June 2018

Welcome to the Cloud 66 Changelog. Please take a quick look at the latest changes that have gone out this week!

Maestro Health Check Documentation

It was pointed out recently that our Maestro (CSv2) health check documentation was lagging (even though the implementation has been available for some time). We've corrected that now! See it here.

The main point worth mentioning is that we provide full support for Kubernetes Readiness Probes and Liveliness Probes - this allows you to deploy your services safe in the knowledge that if they don't succeed (based on your own criteria) they will not be served traffic; and more importantly, your existing pods will not be replaced! Happy deploying!

Performance/Stability Groundwork

We've now successfully rolled out some major changes (including server infrastructure/Ruby/Rails/Webpacker updates) which will provide the groundwork we need to start implementing specific performance improvements! Stay tuned!

New GCE regions and server sizes

We have added some new regions and server sizes for GCE that you can deploy to starting immediately!

The following additional regions have been added:

  • London, U.K.
  • Frankfurt, Germany
  • Eemshaven, Netherlands
  • Mumbai, India
  • Sydney, Australia
  • São Paulo, Brazil
  • Montréal, Canada

The following additional server sizes have been added for select regions:

  • Memory-optimized machine type with 40 vCPUs and 961GB of memory
  • Memory-optimized machine type with 96 vCPUs and 1.4 TB of memory
  • Memory-optimized machine type with 160 vCPUs and 3.75 TB of memory

Build Steps View

If you are using Habitus to build Docker images in a workflow, you can now see the Habitus build steps in the UI for every snapshot that is happening on each one of your services.
