Release Notes for Boomi Data Services for VMware Tanzu (PKS) (Beta)

These are release notes for Boomi Data Services for VMware Tanzu (PKS) (Beta).


Release Date: December 2, 2019

Features included in this release:

  • NFS Options Override - Operators using external storage can now specify custom NFS options, to be passed to the mount command via the -o flag.


Release Date: August 30, 2019

Features included in this release:

  • Decom timout bug fixed - There was a bug with the previous version where Kubernetes could force close a node before it was done decomissioning properly. This is now fixed, and the timeout is configurable via a new value in the Values.yml file boomi.terminationWaitSeconds

  • Various other fixes and improvements - This release also contains a mix of other small bugfixes and improvements.


Release Date: August 19, 2019

Features included in this release:

  • External NFS/NAS - operators who wish to use their own NFS/NAS servers to host the Boomi Molecule installation can now do so, by specifying their storage mode as external, and providing the details for reaching the NFS/NAS endpoint (host/ip and volume path)

  • Automounting of NFS Data Volumes - operators can now specify a set of data volume mountpoints that will be handled via the Linux automounter. This allows processes deployed to the cluster to reference datasets from outside the cluster, without introducing any undue dependencies on third-party NFS/NAS/storage devices.

  • Graceful Decommissioning - when molecule pods are terminated, they now initiate a graceful decommissioning shutdown of the molecule, properly ejecting it from the cluster and avoiding head node leader election problems.

  • VMware Tanzu Registration is now baked in, but optional. By default, your Boomi Data Services Broker will be registered with the gorouter (and advertise appropriate routes), and made available in the VMware Tanzu services marketplace. This can be disabled for sites that want to control how this registration and route mapping takes place.

  • Private Docker Image Registries are now supported, provided operators have the credentials to give to the PKS cluster.

  • Tolerances / Affinity / Node Selection - the Helm chart for Boomi Data Services now supports the standard fare for pod placement, using industry-standard nomenclature.
