Platform9 1.0.0 Beta2 Release notes

Whats New

Multi-Tenancy Support

You can now leverage the multi-tenancy feature with Platform9 by creating one or more ‘tenants.’ The default tenant is called the ‘service’ tenant. This is the tenant you will log into by default when your Platform9 account is created. This is also the tenant where all of your existing virtual machine that are discovered by Platform9 live.

With the new functionality added, you can now go to User Management and create new tenants. When creating a new tenant, you can specify quotas for CPU, memory and storage. You can also specify what subset of networks the tenant should have access to. Any virtual machine created within the tenant will only be created on the servers that have access to those networks.

Change Ownership Of Discovered Virtual Machines

With support for multi-tenancy, we think it’s important that you can distribute your existing discovered virtual machine across different tenants and assign them to different users. This functionality is now supported. In the Instances View, you can select “Change Owner” as one of the supported actions.
