SHIELD v8 is a marked improvement over previous version of SHIELD.
Multi-Tenancy - SHIELD now supports the notion of tenants, which allow
site operators to group their users logically, and sequester teams from
one another. Each tenant has its own set of jobs, tasks, archives,
etc., and members of one tenant cannot interact with the resources of
another. Users can be assigned to multiple tenants, concurrently.
Archive Encryption - SHIELD now leverages AES-256 encryption when
storing backup archives in cloud storage, making sure that your data is
secure, even at-rest.
Agent Registration - SHIELD Agents now register with the SHIELD Core,
and provide metadata to assist operators in the configuration of backup
targets, and cloud storage systems.
Improved Web UI - SHIELD's web-based user interface got a massive
overhaul in this release, with a concerted focus on efficiency and
ease-of-use for operators, and their immediate concerns.
New CLI - The SHIELD CLI has been rewritten from the ground-up to
interface more cleanly with the SHIELD v8 API. It handles plugin
configuration more naturally, without forcing you to write proper JSON.
Yay. It also supports a new
importfunction that makes it easy to
ensure that your target and storage systems, jobs, retention policies,
etc. are always correct.
Improved Scheduling - Backup Jobs can now be run every X hours, much
to the delight of SHIELD users everywhere.
