From January 1, 2018, Microsoft has implemented a new license pricelist to all SPLA partners, including the Coolhousing datacenter. Because we always want to be one step ahead; we assumed this move of Microsoft at the Coolhousing in January 1, 2017 and we already transformed entire infrastructure and customer infrastructure into a new licensing model year ago. And nowadays this work has returned to you and to us.
Dear customers, a night security update has been successfully completed at January 5, 2018 and all the underlying virtualization servers have been updated as we planned. Unfortunately, the critical error can also affect the virtualization platform itself. Due to this reason, we have completed the preparation and testing of a new version of the virtualization platform, and the second part of the maintenance will take place during this evening and morning.
Within virtual server services by Coolhousing datacenter the virtio driver was extensively upgraded to version 0.1.141. The upgrade has been proceed due to older drivers that could caused instability of virtual servers with OS Windows (such as blue screen, spontaneous reboots, etc.). New drivers are automatically applied to all newly installed virtual servers running under MS Windows Server 2012, 2012 R2 and 2016. Drivers for MS Windows Server 2008 R2 are not prepared, yet.
