I'm working on moving to VPC.
When I select add a private role in an existing farm with the vpc setting (public subnet). I cannot select the instance types which work with VPC.
Here is a screenshot : https://www.awesomescreenshot.com/image/3403251/8c0a9062f12bf5b27b0cea5ffcbdec0c

Please advise

    Instance types depends on two things:
    1. VPC vs Non-VPC (some instance types can be launched only in VPC)
    2. AMI type: HVM vs PV (some instance types can be launched only on HVM AMIs).

    So, if some instance types are greyed-out, most likely they just need and HVM image.

    Thanks Igor

    You are correct.

    Is there a way to switch PV->HVM without creating the image and all the
    stack from scratch ?

    Thanks Igor,

    It looks like I will need to create everything from scratch.
    I see that scalr supports mysql 5.5 and only on ubuntu 14.4 ?
    Is there any way to use Scalr Automation for Mysql On 16.06 with latest
    Mysql version ?

    Thanks

    Hi Nir,

    We don't have plans at the moment to add new versions or new OSes for our built-in automation. Any reason why you don't want/can use RDS?

    1. Moving to RDS requires me to move to VPC (for aurora) which is a huge
    project. I have a complex setup on classic.
    2. Scalr mysql works for me for years. I will need to spend time optimizing
    for RDS
    3. keeping the data on my own server is good in terms of GDPR. I'm not sure
    if RDS meets all the requirements.

    Let me make sure I understand - the automation you have only work with 5.5
    so any change I will do to mysql version or ubuntu (besides going for
    14.04) means losing Scalr automation?

    Hi Nir,

    We do support MySQL 5.6 on Ubuntu 14.04. We don't plan to add support for 5.7 at this moment.

    HI Igor,

    If you're not going to support mysql automation anymore in ubuntu >14.04 versions like I understand from our previous correspondence, this is a big deal. A very big deal. We and other customers depend on the automation, backups, replication etc..

    The current situation is crazy for me and many others I'm sure. I want to upgrade to ubuntu 16.06 and HVM and I find that I need to do a few months project of rebuilding all my system in VPC and switching to RDS which creates regulatory issues etc..

    I cannot stress enough the distress this puts on my resources and I'm sure many others.

    I think you should at least announce it clearly a year or more in advance letting customers know they should migrate or build their own automation.

    Why won't you continue supporting the automation on new Ubuntu ?
    Its already working its just a matter of QA.
