Catalyze is pleased to announce the General Availability of Version 2.2.0 of Stratum, the industry leading HIPAA Compliant Platform As A Service. This release will be available to all Stratum customers on October 20th, 2016.

Highlights of Stratum V2.2.0

Run Stratum on Any Cloud Account

Organizations can now run their Stratum environments on virtual machines on their own cloud account. The CLI and Dashboard remain the same, but the hardware is managed by the user.

Flexible versions of PostgreSQL, Percona MySQL, MongoDB

The CLI access and backup strategies for Stratum databases has been enhanced to allow multiple versions of each database. We’re excited to announce that we now support MongoDB 2.6, 3.0, and 3.2, PostgreSQL 9.4 and 9.5, and MySQL 5.6. If you have further questions regarding specific database versions please contact support via the Stratum dashboard.

Uptime Tracking

Key metrics to measure Redpoint reliability and uptime can now be tracked within a Catalyze-provided ELK stack. This will allow you to subscribe to alerts of your choosing to determine the health of your integrations at the same speed which Catalyze support receives the notifications. For Redpoint customers, please talk to your Catalyze representative to see if you qualify for an upgrade or for upgrading to the Uptime Tracking feature.

NGINX Access Logs Available in Kibana

NGINX access logs are now shipped to the logging container by default for all new environments. To add this functionality to your existing Stratum environment(s) please contact support via the Stratum dashboard.

Update “Service Names” Through the Dashboard

During environment creation new services are given generic “Service Names” by default. For example: a new code service would be labeled code-1. In this release we’re giving users the ability to change this name directly within the dashboard (as well as in the CLI). This allows users to assign a name that is more relevant to their application. See the image below for an example of how to update a service name. Note: Renaming a service will not change the Git URL or private network DNS entries, only the identifiers in the dashboard and CLI. 

Maintenance Mode & Pages

Users can now place a service into maintenance mode via the Stratum Dashboard. This will send all public service requests to a static maintenance page alerting users that the current service is unavailable. As a benefit to developers the service will continue running and be accessible via the VPN. This will allow Stratum users to update their code services for private testing before opening up the new code to the public. 

Redesigned Services View

With the introduction of updating service names and maintenance mode we took the opportunity to redesign the services view. Each code service type (service_proxy, code, database, cache, and default) now has tabbed navigation with appropriate content for that service.

Catalyze CLI Enhancements

The Catalyze CLI has been updated with improvements to log tailing, and the ability to rename services and environments. For a full list of CLI improvements visit the official CLI 3.3.0 release notes here.
