What new features are included?

Scale Out / In

You can now add or remove nodes in Redis Sentinel, MS SQL Server 2019, and Elasticsearch clusters to optimize capacity and performance and facilitate node maintenance.

  • Deploy three or more nodes for clustered deployments with master or data roles
  • Basic User Authentication with username and password
  • TLS/SSL API endpoint encryption
  • Backup Management with local file storage repository
  • Scaling out master or data nodes

  • Deploy and Import
    • New database: MongoDB Sharded cluster

    • Automatic setup of a shared NFS filesystem for Elasticsearch at deployment
