- IBM Cloud Private Cloud Foundry Version 18.104.22.168 introduces a technical preview of the IBM Cloud Private Cloud Foundry console. Use the IBM Cloud Private Cloud Foundry console to create and manage your Cloud Foundry applications and bound services.
- Container-to-container networking is a new feature that enables communication between application containers without sending them through Gorouter. Container networking uses application policies to control how containers can communicate with each other, and the policies can be defined dynamically. For more details, see Understanding Container-to-Container Networking .
- Blobstore migrated from NFS to WebDAV, a more secure and manageable server. WebDAV protocol is better suited for Cloud Foundry than NFS because there is no actual data migration involved. Cloud Controller now uses WebDAV protocol to blobstore
instead of using
- Director is configured by using
bosh-dnsto publish DNS names of Cloud Foundry. A local DNS server runs on all the Cloud Foundry virtual machines and replicates its data from Director with
dns-aware-bosh agent. This eliminates virtual machine dependency on the Director PowerDNS as a single point-of-failure. For more details, visit Native DNS Support .
- BOSH Backup and Restore is available. For more details, see BOSH Backup and Restore .
- Backups of the UAADB, CCDB, Director, and the deployments are available. See Configuring backups for IBM® Cloud Private Cloud Foundry for more information.
- Manage multiple vSphere clusters and port-groups with Availability Zones to create a highly available, distributed deployment. Availability Zones allow fault tolerance and high availability of an IBM Cloud Private Cloud Foundry deployment. See Configuring Availability Zones for IBM Cloud Private Cloud Foundry for more information.
- Cloud Foundry was upgraded to version 270.29
- There is a recommended order for buildpacks to improve buildpack detection performance. If the order is changed, the new order is maintained.
- All Cloud Foundry and Diego releases are precompiled with Stemcell version 3468.20, which provides a 20-30% reduction in deployment and upgrade times.
- There is an integrated Bosh
os-conf-releasepackage, which you can use to enable VMware timesync. VMware timesync is enabled by default on all BOSH deployed VMs by using the
os-conf-releasepackage. You must ensure
Hostshave time sync enabled with an external NTP server.
