2. Release Features

2.1. Kubernetes Cluster Support (K3s)

  • Cluster Instance Automatic Onboarding Support—Starting with ZedControl Release 6.8.0, users can automatically onboard a Rancher cluster from ZedControl. Previously a user had to manually create a cluster object on Rancher before it could be onboarded to ZedControl.
  • Auto Network Instance Creation Support—Starting with ZedControl Release 6.8.0, while creating a cluster instance, the user can create a network instance that will automatically be applied to all devices in that cluster.
  • Support for K3S Cluster Management Features—Starting with ZedControl Release 6.5.0, users can integrate Kubernetes infrastructure orchestration on edge nodes managed by ZedControl. The support enables complete lifecycle management of Kubernetes clusters on selected edge node groups. Monitoring and troubleshooting remote clusters is therefore possible within ZedControl. The user is given easy-to-use options to activate and deactivate a cluster. K3s-specific logs from each Edge Node in the cluster are also available to the user on ZedControl.Support for Cluster
  • Instance Creation—Starting with ZedControl Release 6.1.0, ZedControl supports K3s cluster creation.

2.2. Volume Instance

  • Support for Creating a Blank Storage in Volume Instances–Starting with ZedControl Release 6.11.0, users can create a blank volume on the edge node. The volume is available with or without application instance(s) using it. Bandwidth is not consumed when no application instance is using it, but it reduces operation execution time in this case.
  • Persistent Volume Support—Starting with ZedControl Release 6.3.0, ZEDEDA supports block storage volume instances (local to the device).

2.4. Multi-Enterprise

  • Support for Multi-Enterprise Login–Starting with ZedControl Release 6.14.0, once logged into ZedControl, the user can select between multiple enterprises. Users with access to multiple enterprises will land on a secondary login page which offers them a drop-down list of all accessible enterprises.

2.5. Terraform

  • Support for Terraform–Starting with ZedControl Release 6.14.0, the Terraform Provider ZEDCloud module allows users to manage their ZEDCloud configuration. Terraform Provider ZEDCloud is considered another user agent, like ZedUI and ZCLI, written in Golang.

2.6. Automated Authentication for Splunk and Rancher
