I would like to see better error messages in the gui. Some errors that I get are absolutely
meaningless and don't tell anything about what needs doing to overcome the errors. This is
very important in my opinion. Errors like Could not start vm or router due to Null is just
no go. I've also seen pointless errors while trying to delete resources like primary/secondary
storage, network resources, etc. In my mind, a commercial product should have a meaningful
error reporting and documented solutions on fixing these errors. 

In terms of functionality, I would like to see better KVM support for things like change of
service offering on live vm, ability to snapshot/restore the entire vm, not just volume by

Also, ability to snapshot/import/export account settings, including networks, firewall rules,
virtual machines, policies, etc. 

Redundant Virtual routers checks also need to be improved to make sure you always have two
virtual routers running, as at the moment, if one of the VRs crash or host server running
a VR crashes ACS doesn't automatically restart it making sure that you always have two running

Hi All, 

As we ramp towards freeze on 4.3 and start talking about 4.4, I thought it would be fun to
queue up a discussion here on the list before Collab next week. 

What do you envision in the next MAJOR release of CloudStack? Call it 5.0 or whatever you
like, but what would you like to see there? What would you change? What would you enhance?
Are there big bets we should be placing as a community? 

Feel free to post any thoughts here and I'll look forward to talking to many of you in person
at Collab next week. You are coming to Collab, right?
