    Currently there is no mechanism to failover public (or PSN) IP addresses between vDCs, to redirect traffic between 2 vDCs in a DR failover situation. Global Site Selection via DNS or manual DNS changes could be used to redirect traffic between 2 vDCs with different public IPs, but these options do have limitations (DNS caching etc).

    It would be useful to be able to advertise the same IP address/range from 2 different vDCs with BGP preferences plus interface tracking or health checks used to identify the preferred site and update the routing accordingly.

    Thanks

    Having just had to reset my "ideas" password, please can you consider integrating the authentication between this site and the main customer portal?

    It would be useful to have a record of activities performed in the Portal for auditing purposes.

    It would be useful to have a PDF version of Knowledge Centre articles.

    Would like to be able to query UKCloud platform status via an API so that we don't need to physically go to the status page.

    It doesn't seem possible to get maintainence notifications from the service status site https://status.ukcloud.com by any of email, atom or RSS - only incident notifications.
    Could this be added as some maint notifications have mandatory actions attached that may be missed.

    It would be good to show open tickets first in the portal ( or have an option to allow this ) to avoid having to page through closed tickets to find old ongoing open tickets

    It would be useful to get notified of a count or list of VMs that haven't been booted in over 90 days as these may be suitable for removal, saving money by no longer paying for the storage charges.

    In our recent service review the following customer environment status indicators were given to us:

    Old vShield Edges
    Disabled Firewalls
    Out of date Snapshots
    Old VMware tools

    Could these indicators be added to the UKC Portal with notifications if we stop being "green" for each of them

    The current UKC Portal has some odd "Captcha" style questions eg How many days are there in a month?  Could a more standard Captcha framework be used (assuming this could be made to work in both Assured and Elevated).

    Also could support for external authentication providers ( eg Google authentication ) be added  (this may have to be Assured only)?
