Issue date: 2021-07-28
Affected products: Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure 4.6
Virtuozzo Advisory ID: VZA-2021-039
This update provides new features, as well as bug fixes and improvements.
2. New Features¶
Update of Kubernetes versions. You can manually initiate a Kubernetes cluster update to a newer version when it becomes available.
Creating virtIO disks for virtual machines. To boost I/O performance of virtual machines, you can configure their boot disks to use the virtIO bus. This configuration is available only in the command-line interface.
Node selection during an update. It is now possible to update cluster nodes in a particular order, for example, to reduce maintenance windows for hosted services.
Additional maintenance mode options. Now, you can configure maintenance mode options for nodes during an update. Namely, you can decide how to live migrate virtual machines when a node enters the maintenance mode.

4. Installing the Update¶
You can update Virtuozzo Hybrid Infrastructure in the SETTINGS > UPDATE section of the admin panel. A reboot is required to complete the upgrade. Upgraded nodes will be rebooted automatically, one at a time. During the reboot, the storage service and the admin panel might be unavailable on cluster configurations without the redundancy of services or data.
