Done

  • Deploying Supergiant Capacity Service for more efficient management of cluster resources. Supergiant Capacity Service used to provision Kubernetes nodes for Elasticsearch Pods substantially improves the stability of user deployments. We've experienced fewer issues with inability to provision Elasticsearch clusters after deploying Supergiant Capacity Service.

In Progress

  • Adding Elasticsearch 6.4 to the list of available versions. This release offers several new features (e.g., WeightedAvg metric aggregation), and you can learn about them here.
  • Adding the Learn-to-Rank plugin to the provisioner. The Elasticsearch Learn-to-Rank plugin leverages Machine Learning (ML) to improve search relevance ranking.
  • Security Improvements. We are currently working on email verification and user verification before being able to log into Qbox.

Planned

  • Add Hunspell dictionaries to the Qbox dashboard. Hunspell is a spell checker and morphological analyzer originally designed for the Hungarian language. It is a good analyzer solution for languages with rich morphology and complex word compounding and character encoding.
