Debian 7.2 mainly comes with security fixes and critical bug fixes. As usual, the available packages do not include any updates, only relevant bugs and security holes have been closed.

These bug fixes affect a total of 100 packages (including curl, nmap, openvpn, php5 and perl). In addition to Ubuntu 12.04 a LTS kernel (3.2.51) is used, which is not officially supported in any way until 2016.

In addition to the standard installation a RAID1 version can be selected.

“Saucy Salamander” was simultaneously presented with OpenStack’s new version of “Havana”. 13.10 Ubuntu Server is running on a kernel 3.11 and comes with some updates. These include Qemu in version 1.5.0 and the virtualization library “libvirt” in version 1.1.1. Apache 2.4 with PHP 5.5 scripting language comes as standard as a web server. For the first time the openVZ-like virtualisation solution LXC (“Linux Containers”) is included.

Regarding the support, “Saucy Salamander” takes over the policy of its predecessor: The non-LTS versions are now supplied with updates in 9 instead of the previous 18 months. “Saucy Salamander” will appear in the “end-of-life” status three months after the next LTS release.

More features:
– Qemu 1.5.0, libvirt 1.1.1

Proxmox 3.1 for dedicated servers available

07.10.2013 | von Robby

From now on, the virtualization platform Proxmox VE 3.1 can be installed via the EUserv customer panel. A standard version as well as a RAID1 version are available. With Proxmox 3.1 there are signifcant changes to the included repositories. Via the default repository “pve-enterprise” licensees get stable updates, security patches and bug fixes. Users without a license agreement can use the “pve-no-subscription” repository, which replaces the previous “pve (-stable)”.In version 3.1, a Debian “Wheezy” with Redhat 7.1 kernel (2.6.32-23pve) can be used.

Proxmox VE 3.1 now supports the SPICE protocol (Simple Protocol for Independent Computing Environments) as a preview. SPICE enables the delivery of virtual desktops and provides the user with a user experience similar to a local machine while it tries to calculate CPU-and GPU-intensive tasks from the client. SPICE is the integration of the Cluster environment, while the user and system authentication and all traffic will be encrypted. The graphical output is using VNC but is still available as standard. As a new file system plugin, the developers of GlusterFS also have added their cluster-enabled file system. In addition, users can now update their web interface via the Proxmox host.

More features:

– updates can now be performed on the new update feature in the web interface
– support for GlusterFS via a new storage plugin
– permanent price reduction of Community Subscription
– integration of the package update manager in the Web Interface

Hyper-V Server 2012 / Misurfi Server without Setup Fee / WebDAV changes

26.09.2013 | von Robby


Content:

1.) Server news #1: Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 Core available
2.) Server news #2: „Misurfi“ server without setup fee
3.) Webspace news: Adaptation of WebDAV paths

——————————————————————

1.) Server news #1: Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2012 Core available

In addition to the licensed editions of Windows Server 2012, we are now offering a free Hyper-V Server 2012 core. This combines all the features of Hyper-V standard or Datacenter versions of Windows Server 2012. Hyper-V Server 2012 Core can be installed via the customer panel and can be managed via Remote Desktop. To administer the VM’s, PowerShell (on Windows 8) or the Hyper-V Manager can be used.

Hyper-V Server 2012 core contains the innovations of paid hypervisors. In addition to the higher performance (up to 320 logical CPUs, 4 TB physical RAM and 1 TB of virtual RAM per VM) it includes various features. This especially concerns the point storage (storage QoS, faster live migration, online resizing of VHDX files.)

Hyper-V Server 2012 core can be operated as a stand-alone host or in an Active Directory domain. As opposed to Windows Server 2012, the rights to run the host operating system are not included. The Hyper-V Server 2012 Core is especially suitable for virtualization of Linux systems or VDI solutions.

More features:

– Replication of VMs between Hyper-V hosts
– Live migration of VM’s
– VHDX supports hard drives up to 64 TB
– SMB in Version 2.2

Limitations:

– no rights for virtualizing Windows guests
– Host virtualization limited (other services such as ADS, DNS, or DHCP can not be operated in parallel)
– no GUI (Administration via Powershell or command line required)

——————————————————————

2.) Server news #2: „Misurfi“ server without setup fee

Order your new server now:
No setup fees until 2013-09-30 for all dedicated servers of the “Misurfi” series.

The “Misurfi” servers are especially suited for beginners because of their good hardware at a very reasonable price or for self-employed individuals who put a value on their own hosting on a dedicated server.

Direct link:

http://www.euserv.com/en/dedicated-server/misurfi-rootserver/v6/index.php

——————————————————————

3.) Webspace news: Adaptation of WebDAV paths

All webspace plans got a change since 2013-09-18 regarding the WebDAV paths. When using WebDAV access the Root directory of the current <FTP-account> / www / data,  changes to <FTP-account> / www.

This change has two backgrounds. Firstly, the log files can be easily accessed via WebDAV, secondly, the stored CGI scripts on your webspace can be managed directly.

To edit the web page data, change to “data” folder as usual.
