We are very pleased to announce that 2.10.0 is now GA . This release includes several new features and improvements as well as key bug fixes. Here is the list of key features and improvements:
Portworx by Pure Storage is proud to introduce the following new features:
- The Portworx Application Control feature provides a method for controlling an individual Portworx volume’s IO or bandwidth usage of backend pool resources. Portworx volumes are created from a common backend pool and share their available IOPS and bandwidth amongst all other provisioned Portworx volumes.
- The volume trash can feature provides protection against accidental or inadvertent volume deletions which could result in loss of data. In a clustered environment such as Kubernetes, unintended deletion of a PV or a namespace will cause volumes to be lost. This feature is recommended in any environment which is prone to such inadvertent deletions, as it can help to prevent data loss.
- You can enable automatic filesystem trimming (auto fstrim) at the volume, node, or cluster level. When you enable auto fstrim at the cluster or node level and enable
nodiscardon your volumes, auto fstrim monitors the unused space in all filesystems mounted on Portworx volumes and automatically triggers a trim job to return unused space back to the pool, and you do not have to manually issue trim jobs.
|Improvement Number||Improvement Description|
|PWX-20674||In Async DR setup, before creating a cluster pair, the DR license is checked on both the clusters. The cluster pair request will error out if only one of the clusters has DR license set.|
|PWX-21318||Users can set the frequency of full backups using
|PWX-21024||This fix adds
|PWX-19780||Local volumes that are pending due to ha-increase will now appear when using
|PWX-20210||Added support for specifying throughput parameter for gp3 drive types in AWS. The throughput parameter can only be specified at install time. Portworx currently does not allow a way to change the throughput parameter once installed. One can still change the throughput of any drives directly from the AWS console.|
|PWX-22977||Sometimes cloudsnaps can fail with
|PWX-21122||VPS users now have control at the pool level with the new built-in
|PWX-20938||Added a VolumePlacementStrategy template for use with StatefulSets that allows volume affinity and anti-affinity with volumes belonging to the same StatefulSet pod. Use the key/value
