We pushed out another update to the Sunshower platform yesterday.

On the Back End

We upgraded from Java 9 to Java 12 and from WildFly 14 to 16. As part of this, we also moved our L2 cache from Ignite to Infinispan. (We love Ignite, and are still using it for other things, but there was a memory leak in the version of Hibernate we were using, and Ignite was preventing us from upgrading).

On the Front End

When you come into your system and we don’t have your optimizations ready to go, you’ll now see a big refresh button. You can also rerun the optimization at any time by hitting the refresh button in the upper right:

Refreshing the optimization is more obvious
No optimization results ready to go? Push the button!

The optimization summary now lists instances by current machine price, descending. It is currently paged, so users with more than 12 instances can expect to see some new navigation:

Paging at the bottom of the summary
Pages and pages of lovely optimization goodness

You’ll also see a little green trophy by any instances that are fully optimized. Good luck, and get optimizing!

Up Next

The next release will contain enhancements related to regions: support for limiting optimization recommendations by region, as well as the ability to group and view infrastructure by region. As always, please let us know any feature requests.
