With the latest AppScale release (3.4), we will default all new deployments and installation to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial). Published AppScale images are based on Long Term Support images to ensure stability and easy upgradability. Our choice
The AppScale team is excited to announce the availability of AppScale 3.4! This release contains new features, additions to the API, performance improvements, upgrades for dependencies, and bug fixes.
A key new feature is the ability to deploy and manage multiple services
AppScale’s strong suit has been to support a wide range of resources, from clouds (public and private) to virtualized environments (virtualbox, kvm, docker, and more) to bare-metal (clusters and any resources the user has access to). Whenever there is a provisioning service, AppScale can take advantage of it to simplify resource management: for example, AWS, GCE, Azure, Euca, OpenStack all provide provisioning systems that AppScale can leverage to manage resources -- instances, network, disks.
We are thrilled to announce the release of AppScale 3.2. The main theme for the next installment in the AppScale 3 series, has been the tuning and improvement of the Big Data capabilities of AppScale. So in this release we finely tuned the performance of Datastore, and TaskQueue APIs in order to support massive load with the MapReduce and Pipeline libraries.
We are pleased to announce the release of AppScale 3.1, the second release of the 3 series.
The datastore is one of the most heavily-used Google App Engine APIs, and it was one of the first components that AppScale implemented. It has seen many iterations, including (at one time) support for 12 database backends. Now that we’ve settled on Cassandra as our supported database, we’ve reached much greater stability. However, we are always looking for ways to increase the performance of the datastore while maintaining that stability.
We are pleased to announce the release of AppScale 2.8.0!
This second to last version of the series, brings a long list of small improvements, and starts to lay the foundation for the upcoming 3 series; in particular in the datastore and controller services, as well as in the AppScale Tools to make an admin's life easier.
