Kaleido Updates

Releases: Blockchain Protocol & Full-stack Services

These updates:

  • Upgrade the protocol and service components
  • Available as a rolling update which does not interrupt the environment where possible
  • Optionally applied by a user

Scheduling Maintenance

Kaleido puts you in control of when you apply upgrades to your Blockchain runtime, as well as the full-stack Kaleido and 3rd Party services in your environments.

  • We test a set of versions together and package them into a “Release”
  • We ship new releases regularly
  • You can upgrade to the latest release at any time
  • We use a rolling upgrade across the chain wherever possible to minimize downtime
  • You can stage upgrades through your Kaleido environments (such as if you have Dev, Staging etc.)

We do require you to stay current on maintenance to ensure we fully test migration combinations, and that we are able to roll out key infrastructure changes.

For this reason we schedule baseline upgrades every few months to move everybody forwards to a minimum level of maintenance. Customers who have not applied maintenance recently will be upgraded automatically to the new baseline after a notification period of at least one month.

Check for a banner in the UI when a new baseline is coming up, so you can schedule the upgrade.

SaaS Platform Updates

These updates:

  • Upgrade the Management UI and APIs for creation of user-controlled cloud resources such as Blockchains, and other decentralized infrastructure components.
  • Automatically applied

Kaleido is a continuous delivery as-a-service platform, and we push updates regularly through a pipeline of 1000s of tests, multiple test environments, and into production.

Version 1.0.10

Version 1.0.9

  • Release Date: March 15 2019
  • New: Upgrade adds new services and features to existing environments
  • Fix: Connection stability enhancements to constellation
    • Modified the trust settings for TLS certificates. In previous releases Constellation was configured to associate certificate X509 fingerprints to remote peer IP addresses. IP address of pods can change due to HA failover scenarios and multi-region deployments. As such, comparing certificates against stored trust-on-first-use (TOFU) copies results in failed connections when certificate/IP pairings change after an automatic HA restart.
    • TLS transport encryption remains in-place. Payloads are encrypted in addition to transport layer TLS security, and the private IP networks within Kaleido are firewall isolated.
