Upcoming

  • a9s PostgreSQL: Deprecation: Prepare for the upcoming deprecation phase, triggered during the next release of anynines deployment v46.0.0 (expected end of February 2024), of the following data service version:

    • a9s PostgreSQL 10

    Please ensure that you organize the migration of your existing instances to a more up-to-date version of the same data service:

    • for a9s PostgreSQL: a9s PostgreSQL 11, 13 and 15 are available as GA version

    The deprecation phase is planned to last until v49.0.0 (in May 2024), in which the deprecated version will become unsupported. The creation of new data service instances for this particular version will then be disabled by default in the a9s Data Service Bundle and we will not provide regular support for this version. The corresponding documentation will also be removed. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you start your migrations to a supported GA version as soon as possible and complete them until the end of the deprecation phase. For more information see a9s Platform Operator Sunrise Sunset.

    To inquire about extended support for a deprecated version, please get in contact with our sales department at sales@anynines.com.

    • a9s MongoDB 4.0

    The creation of new data service instances for these deprecated versions is now disabled by default in the a9s Data Service Bundle and we no longer provide regular support for these versions. The corresponding documentation has been removed.

    Although we will not intentionally break running instances of these unsupported versions, it cannot be guaranteed that they still work as expected after an update to this release.

Removed

  • breaking change all services: Remove the Instance Group force_deployment_updater from all a9s Data Service deployment manifests. This errand is only needed when the feature Block Automatic Updates is enabled. For more information see Block Automatic Updates.

Fixed

  • a9s Backup Manager: Fix the InitializeBackupDeletionJob job by refactoring it into separate methods to deal with a specific type of backup each. This fixes the cases where, at times, backups without a backup name would cause the job to fail and restart.
  • docs: all services: Fix several minor typos and misnaming ocurrences.

    Please ensure that you organize the migration of your existing instances to a more up-to-date version of the same data service:

    • for a9s LogMe: a9s LogMe2 is available as GA version

    This deprecation follows the announcement in the previous release. The deprecation phase is planned to last until v42.0.0 (in October 2023), in which the deprecated version will become unsupported. The creation of new data service instances for this particular version will then be disabled by default in the a9s Data Service Bundle and we will not provide regular support for this version. The corresponding documentation will also be removed. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you start your migrations to a supported GA version as soon as possible and complete them until the end of the deprecation phase. For more information see a9s Platform Operator Sunrise Sunset.

    To inquire about extended support for a deprecated version, please get in contact with our sales department at sales@anynines.com.

Changed

  • breaking change all services: Use stemcell ubuntu-jammy version 1.125 for all internal tests of the a9s Data Services Framework components except the following: a9s Consul, a9s Service Guard, a9s Billing, and a9s-pg. Please make sure to update your stemcells accordingly, as shown in the example IaaS configuration.
  • breaking change all services: Use stemcell ubuntu-bionic version 1.204 for all internal tests of the a9s Data Services. Please make sure to update your stemcells accordingly.
  • breaking change all services: Change vm_type of the a9s Service Dashboard VM from nano to small to better reflect the resource requirements. For more information see a9s Service Dashboard VM size.

  • all services: a9s Smoke Tests: Add OpenSSL v1.1.1 for compatibility reasons as Ubuntu Jammy comes with OpenSSL v3 by default, but our tests still rely on OpenSSL v1; wherefore, we had to add it explicitly to be able to run the a9s Smoke Tests on ubuntu-jammy stemcell.
  • a9s Backup Manager: Increase the possible database connections to 50 to be able to parallelize the backup status check.
  • a9s Backup Manager: Parallelize the check of the status of running backups. This improves the performance on environments that have many backups running in parallel.
  • a9s Elasticsearch: Freeze stemcell for a9s Elasticsearch 2, 5, 6, and 7 to ubuntu-bionic v1.204. This is necessary since these versions are not compatible with ubuntu-jammy.

Removed

  • breaking change all services: Remove the Ops files to enable TLS/SSL encrypted communication for individual a9s Data Services. Since we decided to enable step by step the TLS/SSL encrypted communication for each a9s Data Services Framework component by default and maintaining both ways are not meaningfull and already lead to several confusions we decided to remove the possibility to enable TLS/SSL encrypted communication for a specific a9s Data Service. For the time being we only support TLS/SSL encrypted communication for the a9s Data Services Framework components where it is enabled by default.
  • breaking change a9s Router: Remove the a9s Router deployment manifest and its Ops files. The a9s Router was only used by a9s Kubernetes, which no longer exists, so the a9s Router is no longer needed.
  • all services: Remove the obsolete a9s Kubernetes, a9s Harbor, and a9s Router configurations from the example IaaS configuration.
  • a9s-pg: Remove the obsolete databases for a9s Harbor and a9s Kubernetes. Since we no longer offer these a9s Data Services, their dedicated databases are no longer needed.
  • docs: Platform Operator: Remove obsolete documentation regarding enabling the TLS/SSL encrypted communication for different a9s Data Services Framework components which are not fully supported yet. We decided to enable the encryption for each a9s Data Services Framework component step by step as default instead of making it optional per a9s Data Service, wherefore, this documentation is no longer needed.
  • docs: Platform Operator: Remove outdated troubleshooting documenation regarding TLS/SSL encrypted communication for the a9s Data Services Framework components.
  • docs: Platform Operator: a9s Messaging: Remove obsolete information from the RabbitMQ TLS/SSL Configuration page in favor of TLS/SSL Service Plans.
  • docs: Platform Operator: a9s PostgreSQL: Remove obsolete PostgreSQL TLS/SSL Configuration documentation in favor of TLS/SSL Service Plans.
  • docs: Platform Operator: a9s Redis: Remove obsolete Redis TLS/SSL Configuration documentation in favor of TLS/SSL Service Plans.
  • docs: Platform Operator: a9s Router: Remove the documentation of the a9s Router.
