In accordance to our Release Policy we’re starting generation of 18.1 releases. microservices branch has been forked from main tree about 3 years ago and bring massive architecture changes addressing performance, stability and scalability issues. Considering amount of changes, we’d recommend migration to microservices only for advanced users, seeking particular benefits. All development efforts was focused on microservices and we must admit we’d reached excellent result. Microservices’ offsprings monitor very large networks and we’d got invaluable experience of dealing with 300k+ boxes by single cluster.
In order to finalize 3 years of microservices development and to switch from rolling release to more common release practice we introduce a new release policy. Further NOC releases will be organized into Generations - milestones on NOC platform evolution. Generation is versioned by two or three numbers: X.Y[.Z], where X - is two last letters of year, Y - is sequental number of generation within year (starting from 1). Z - is an optional number of hotfix release (starting with 1) The distance between generations is about one month.
We’re proudly announce new NOC logo. New logo contains stylized letter N with rounded zigzag, ending by arrows on both ends, all filled by deep azure color. New logo plays around the first letter of NOC and common communication signs - a couple of crossed lightnings, ending with arrows. Logo is available in different colors and free for use with any mention of getnoc.com. The best way to help the project is to insert logo whenever possible and link the image to https://getnoc.
