补充两则ramnode官方公告,关于上线openstack按小时收费云架构VPS和开通微信支付宝的有关内容回顾

 

OpenStack Cloud Now Available!

 

We are excited to announce that our OpenStack Cloud is now available! You can sign up through our newly redesigned website, add at least $3 in Cloud Credit, and log into the Cloud Control Panel to launch a new instance!

 

What’s New?

There are several new features available through the Cloud Control Panel:

  • Image / ISO uploads
  • Snapshots / backups
  • Cloud-config with cloud-init user-data
  • Private networking
  • Security groups
  • OpenStack API

In addition to these features, cloud services are billed hourly with the option to prepay for cloud credit or pay for what you use with a credit card on file. Hourly prices are listed on our website, as well as the prices for image storage and bandwidth overages.

 

Known Issues

The new panel has a few known issues that we are working to fix soon. We will update this article as we go. Please contact us via support ticket if you spot something else.

 

What’s Next?

We plan to offer the following options/features at some point in the next few months:

  • Container plans
  • Kubernetes
  • Block storage

We intended to launch LXC alongside KVM, but the driver we were working with was unfortunately retired. We are re-evaluating our container options (LXC, OpenVZ, etc.) with the goal of being able to offer something ASAP.

 

Existing VPS

Existing VPSs are not directly impacted by the launch of our new cloud service. You do not have to make any changes regarding your current VPSs. Your service will continue as it is. We have disabled new orders on SolusVM, but our SolusVM host nodes will run alongside OpenStack indefinitely.

We indicated a while back that existing VPSs would be migrated to OpenStack; however, after spending a lot of time on it, we decided to leave things in place to avoid massive headaches for everyone. Migrations would have involved unpredictable amounts of downtime, a variety of networking problems, billing issues for old coupons/annual payments, etc. We also determined that several popular OpenVZ features would not directly translate to LXC. You are of course welcome to create new cloud instances to replace your existing VPSs, but the systems and services are completely separate.

On a related note, we do have a few things in the works for existing VPSs. We will be migrating our OpenVZ nodes to OpenVZ 7 starting in the next month or so. We are also working on an emergency backup system that will allow you to restore VPS data upon request.

Update – SolusVM OpenVZ orders have been re-enabled while we work on our OpenStack container option.

 

Other Notes

  • Cloud instances come with 1 IPv4 and 1 IPv6 address. You can open a ticket for more IPv6 addresses.
  • The monthly price is the same between SolusVM and Cloud KVM plans, with cloud plans being billed hourly. Plan specs are identical other than IPv6 assignment.
  • Cloud plans have a different naming convention than SolusVM plans:
    • SKVM (Cloud) = SKVMS (SolusVM) – not to be confused with our retired SKVM-E3 plans
    • PKVM (Cloud) = NKVM (SolusVM)
    • VDS (Cloud) = SVDS (SolusVM)

We will be updating our Knowledgebase to reflect these changes over the next few days. We realize documentation on the new system is lacking and plan to add more ASAP.

As always, we welcome your feedback! Feel free to contact us via support ticket or our IRC channel.

OpenStack云现在可用!

 

我们很高兴地宣布,我们的OpenStack云现在可以使用了!您可以通过我们重新设计的新网站注册,添加至少3美元的余额,并登录到云控制面板启动一个新的实例!

 

有什么新消息?

通过云控制面板提供了以下几个新功能:

镜像/ISO上传
快照/备份
使用Cloud init用户数据的云配置
专用网络
安全组
OpenStack API

除了这些功能之外,云服务还按小时计费,可以选择从信用卡预付费用,也可以选择支付您使用的信用卡的费用。我们的网站上列出了每小时的价格,以及快照存储和带宽超支的价格。

 

已知问题

新的小组有一些已知的问题,我们正在努力尽快解决。我们会尽快更新这篇文章。如果您发现其他情况,请通过工单联系我们。

 

接下来是什么?

我们计划在未来几个月的某个时候提供以下选项/功能:

  • Container plans
  • Kubernetes
  • Block storage (块存储)

我们本打算与KVM一起启动LXC,但我们正在使用的驱动程序不幸退役了。我们正在重新评估我们的容器选项(LXC、OpenVZ等),目的是尽快提供一些东西。

 

现有VPS

新云服务的推出不会直接影响现有的vps。您不必对当前的vps进行任何更改。你的服务将继续下去。我们已经禁用了SolusVM上的新订单,但是我们的SolusVM主机节点将无限期地与OpenStack一起运行。

我们曾经指出,现有的vps将被迁移到OpenStack;但是,在花了大量时间在它上面之后,我们决定把事情放在适当的位置,以避免给每个人带来巨大的麻烦。迁移将涉及不可预知的停机时间、各种网络问题、旧优惠券/年度付款的帐单问题等。我们还确定,一些流行的OpenVZ功能不会直接转换为LXC。当然,我们欢迎您创建新的云实例来替换现有的vps,但是系统和服务是完全独立的。

在一个相关的注意事项上,我们确实有一些事情正在为现有的vps工作。我们将从下个月(编者注:2019年8月)左右开始将OpenVZ节点迁移到OpenVZ 7。我们还在开发一个紧急备份系统,允许您根据请求恢复VPS数据。

Update-SolusVM OpenVZ订单在我们使用OpenStack容器选项时被重新启用。

 

其他注意事项

云实例带有1个IPv4和1个IPv6地址。需要更多IPv6地址您可以打开工单。

SolusVM和Cloud KVM计划的月价格相同,Cloud KVM计划按小时计费。计划规格与IPv6分配不同。
Cloud KVM计划的命名规则与SolusVM计划不同:
SKVM(Cloud KVM)=SKVMS(SolusVM)-不要与我们退役的SKVM-E3计划混淆
PKVM(Cloud KVM)=NKVM(SolusVM)
VDS(Cloud KVM)=SVDS(SolusVM)
我们将在未来几天更新我们的知识库以反映这些变化。我们意识到新系统缺少文档,并计划尽快添加更多。

一如既往,我们欢迎您的反馈!请随时通过工单或我们的IRC频道与我们联系。
