Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache CloudStack 4.7.0
Date Wed, 16 Dec 2015 07:34:14 GMT
Hi all,

Hereby my vote for the ACS 4.7.0 RC 1

Details:

Vote: +1

Besides the integration tests (which all ran fine) I've also tested the
following:

 - S3 Integration (Secondary Storage) with NFS Staging store
 - Ceph RBD storage (Primary Storage)
 - Basic networking with security groups

Met vriendelijke groet / Kind regards,
