Infinio Accelerator version 4.1.0 is the latest version, which was released in June 2021. This version of Infinio Accelerator release supports vSphere 6.5, 6.7, and 7.0.
This article provides the index of the topics covered in the Release Notes for Infinio Accelerator from 4.1.0.
- Changes in 4.1.0 (June 2, 2021):
- This is the first Infinio Accelerator release that supports vSphere 7.0. Since vSphere 6 I/O filters can no longer be installed on vSphere 7.0, this release comes with two builds of I/O filters, one for vSphere 6 and one for vSphere 7. The functionalities of the two I/O filter builds are identical.
- Infinio Management Console will now check the release versions of ESXi hosts and determine which I/O filter should be installed in a cluster.
- I/O filters can be installed on both vLCM clusters and VUM clusters; however, for vLCM clusters, users must manually remediate their hosts after the installation through vCenter UI. Similarly, users must also manually remediate the hosts after I/O filters are uninstalled. An automatic solution is being investigated and will be included in a future Infinio Accelerator release.
Important Note: Earlier Infinio Accelerator releases (3.x) were distributed with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. As the public support of this version of Linux has ended, your will not be able to upgrade a 3.x management console to 4.0 or to any later releases. If you currently have a running 3.x management console, you must install a new 4.0 management console alongside the running 3.x management console. A 4.0 management console will be able to talk with previously installed 3.x I/O filters. The same license you used for 3.x will still work with 4.0. You can then upgrade the Infinio I/O filters on all clusters with the newly installed 4.0 management console. After all clusters are upgraded successfully, you may shutdown and archive the 3.x management console as a backup.
