Platform9 4.3 is now live

Hi Everyone,

We have been working hard on the latest release of Platform9, below is a quick overview of what’s new, fixed and updated. Please feel free to ask any questions.

What’s Changed: Platform9 Managed Kubernetes

Platform9 CLI Support for Ubuntu 18.04 and CentOS 7.6/7.7/7.8

Users may now use the Platform9 CLI to create BareOS clusters on supported Ubuntu and CentOS operating systems.

We’re launching a new user interface

We added a mechanism to switch to the new Platform9 user experience. Give it a try!

Added Support for Kubernetes Version 1.16.x

Platform9 now supports Kubernetes version 1.16.x. Users should be aware of APIs that have moved from Beta and Extension to finalized v1 APIs. Users will need to make sure they upgrade their K8s resource objects prior to upgrading.

See the Kubernetes documentation for a list of deprecated APIs To avoid breaking changes review this document from Kubernetes

Calico CNI - Enhanced Cluster Configuration

We have added the ability to configure Calico CNI NAT, IPinIP and Block size settings during cluster creation for BareOS and AWS Clusters.
