I manage a Vultr VM that host few anycast services for an Autonomous System that I manage. When I tried to sys-upgrade the VM to the freshly 7.1 release of OpenBSD, I loosed my BGP session and the access to the VM via the IPv6 address that Vultr expose to me in the Vultr console and via the API. During the boot, I discovered some weird messages that I never saw before:
Since the release of the new Cloud platform of Gandi.net based on Openstack called GandiCloud VPS, I tried to convince the product owner to support more Linux distributions and other OSes like OpenBSD on the platform. For the moment, no plans for OpenBSD in a very near future but dev teams are working on implementing new features to complete the new platform. Fair enough. Since the rescue mode and the emergency console have been released, it’s now possible to try to install non-supported operating systems on a GandiCloud VPS.
