New Linux image naming and registration policies


Currently, for each Linux image, there are two series of images, one with a datestamp (e,g, _20180106_0) and one with a _latest name which gets renamed to _prevN and hidden upon a new _latest image registration. We have followed a roughly monthly update schedule (aligning with the Windows world) for the datestamp images and the _latest images while pushing out additional _latest images in between occasionally based on major improvements, bug fixes or security issues.

Relocating VMs from one pool to another in OTC


When you need to scale vertically, i.e. change the available vCPUs or RAM assigned to a VM in OTC, you can use the resize (change specifications) feature and change the flavor of an existing VM.
