    eNlight VMM 2.1.1 update [ Release Highlights ]

    Dear customers,

    We are glad to announce the release of VMM-2.1.1 eNlight update which has some bug fixes and stability improvements, better user experience and faster VM provisioning. If you have any question or suggestion about your experience with this new release then please contact technical support right away.

    We look forward to improve your experience on eNlight cloud hosting platform and wish to provide you enhancement with our continuous research and development.

    eNlight VMM 2.1.1 update [ Release Highlights ] ::

    Major Highlights
    • Create Static(Fixed Resources) or Dynamic(Salable Resources) VM & easily switch between them [on the fly]
    • Single Dashboard – Centralized Management of Multiple Cluster
    • Faster VM provisioning
    • Pay less as you consume more – Slab based billing system
    • Always Pay per consume for CPU
    • Public API & iPhone App to follow post this update.

    Difference between Dynamic VM and Static VM :

    Dynamic VM :

    Dynamic Resources for CPU and Memory :

    In a Dynamic VM , the compute resources viz CPU and Memory are allocated and charged according to demand. You only pay for what you consume (pay-per-consume). When you create a Dynamic VM, you set minimum and maximum limits for CPU and Memory and system does scaling between these limits according to demand of resources inside Virtual Machine !

    Automatic Vertical Scalability :

    In a Dynamic VM, the compute resources namely CPU and Memory are vertically scalable. This means that your VMs will have only the necessary resources. During VM creation, minimum and maximum resources are defined by you and whenever there are peak hours, the resources allocated to the VM will increase while they will decrease during off-peak hours.

    Pay per consume for Compute and Bandwidth :

    In a Dynamic VM, you will only be charged for the CPU , Memory and Bandwidth that you consume. This helps you pay less during your off-peak hours.

    Pay per allocation Disk :

    In dynamic VMs, the disks are charged as per the allocation.

    Static VM ::

    Fixed Resources for CPU and Memory :

    In Static VM, you get fixed compute resources viz CPU and Memory. System does not increase or reduce them automatically and thus satisfies exact user compute resource demand.

    No Vertical Scalability :

    Since the compute resources in a Static VM are fixed, there is no scaling. In Static VMs, editing resources to increase or decrease them to another fixed value, needs the VM to be in Shutdown state.

    Pay per consume Bandwidth :

    Similar to Dynamic VM, the Bandwidth in Static VMs is also pay-per-consume.

    Pay per use ( Allocation ) CPU, Memory, Disk :

    In Static VM, the billing for CPU, Memory and Disk will be as per allocation ( pay-per-use). Meaning that you will be charged for the fixed resources that have been allocated to you ( as against dynamic vms, where you were charged according to consumption instead of allocation).
