Windows Azure Pack: What to expect in UR5

Update Release 5 will go out on February 10th and here are some highlights of added functionality and bug fixes you can expect to see!

  • Differencing disks are now optional in the VM Role when used with VMM UR5. (This got the fourth highest number of votes in the IaaS category on UserVoice! We are listening, keep giving us the feedback!)
  • Support for SQL Server Resource Governor with SQL Server 2014. Now you can create Plans with limits to what/how much SQL Server resources can be consumed by tenants. For more info click here.
  • Support for disabling native Network Resource Provider to allow 3rd party Network Resource Providers integration with Azure Pack.
  • Tenants can now see information about what type of memory (dynamic/static) their VMs have, along with corresponding Memory Startup and Maximum values.
  • Get-MgmtSvcRelyingPartySettings PowerShell cmdlet returns the settings of the correct namespace.

Note: Azure Pack Web Sites, Service Provider Foundation, and Service Management Automation are not updated in UR5.
