What's New for Apprenda 8

​The Platform has introduced the following features and enhancements. Also see the release notes for more information about bug fixes and additional improvements in each release.


Always On Availability Groups for Platform and Guest Application Databases

The Platform now supports Always On Availability Groups (AAG) for guest application and Platform databases. For guest application databases, Platform Operators are able to forward deploy guest application databases onto external, off-Platform, database servers while retaining scaling and patching capabilities through the Platform. Platform Operators and DBAs can use this feature to support enterprise-level workflows for High Availability and credential rotation.

Additionally, Platform databases can be maintained using AAG, allowing Platform Operators to provide enterprise-level High Availability and Disaster Recovery scenarios for the Apprenda Cloud Platform in single or multiple data centers.

See more about running Platform databases and guest application databases in Availability Groups.

Support for SQL Server 2016

Platform version 8.0.0 now supports SQL Server 2016 for guest application and Platform databases. See the Supported Software page for more on Platform SQL Server support.

Off-Platform Audit Log Aggregation

You are now able to process, filter, and deliver Platform Audit logs to an off-Platform log aggregator using the Platform extension model. You must have Audit logging enabled to use this functionality. See more about configuring your an Audit Log forwarder service on your Platform.
