(March 13, 2024)

New features:

  • Customer contracts are now accessible in Hyperstack via the Billing page under the Contracts tab. For more information about contracts, please click here.
  • Virtual machines utilizing the specified GPU model in a contract will now feature an icon denoting their active contract status. This indicator is visible on the My Virtual Machines page, as well as on both the individual VM details and Contract Details pages.
  • When a virtual machine under contract is hibernated, additional information is displayed in a popup.
  • NVIDIA Inception Program customers will now be greeted with a welcome popup message upon logging in, notifying them that a 20% discount will be automatically applied to all resources within their organization.


(February 28, 2024)

New features:

  • Labels can now be added to virtual machines either at the time of deployment using the "Labels" option in Hyperstack, or by including the labels field in the body of your Infrahub API request to create a virtual machine.
  • Existing virtual machine labels can be edited in Hyperstack on the VM details page or using the update virtual machine labels Infrahub API.
  • The VM details page has been enhanced with separate sections for all information relating to a VM. These sections include an overview of its details, networking, firewall settings, volumes, callbacks, and labels.
  • Hyperstack now distinguishes between contracted VMs and on-demand VMs with a badge on the VM details page.


(January 5, 2024)

New features:

  • Hyperstack now supports the use of custom operating system images, allowing users to launch VMs with their preferred OS. For inquiries about using custom images, please contact us at [email protected].
  • Hyperstack now provides Ubuntu images pre-installed with NexGen-supported NVIDIA drivers and CUDA toolkit, streamlining the deployment process for virtual machines.
  • Users will now receive an email notification for successful payments.
  • Email notifications will now be sent to users upon successful completion of virtual machine hibernation or restoration operations.
  • The public IP addresses for VMs can now be conveniently accessed from the My Virtual Machines page within Hyperstack.

(Dec 18, 2023)

New features:

  • Added feature for creating and managing firewalls that can be shared between multiple virtual machines. These operations enable users to establish firewall rules once and attach them to multiple VMs, reducing the time and effort currently spent configuring rules individually for each VM. Learn more about the new firewall operations here.
  • Added a synchronization tool that regularly checks the current status of the VM, reducing instances where VMs are stuck in RESTORING or HIBERNATING states.
  • Added the capability to modify the name of an organization.
  • Users can now access and review their billing information details on the My Account page within Hyperstack.
  • Hyperstack now displays the estimated completion time for a HIBERNATING VM.
  • The Marketplace feature is now labeled as "Coming soon."


  • The image name is now correctly displayed when a VM is booted from a volume.
  • To prevent race conditions, actions are disabled when a VM is in a transitioning state (e.g., HIBERNATING).
  • Access to the VNC console is available for active VMs only.
  • The password field is now required when creating Jupyter notebooks.


(Nov 8, 2023 - Dec 18, 2023)

Core services


  • API keys are now obfuscated on GET requests.
  • Added the PUT /auth/organizations/update endpoint, allowing you to update the name of an organization.
  • Added RBAC permission virtual-machine:metrics, which when granted, enables access to the GET /core/virtual-machines/{virtual_machines_id}/metrics endpoint for retrieving performance metrics for a virtual machine.
  • Added RBAC permission virtual-machine:events, which when granted, enables access to the GET /core/virtual-machines/{virtual_machines_id}/events endpoint for retrieving a history of events for a virtual machine.


  • Added the capability to apply virtual machine-specific discounts.
  • Hibernated NVMe virtual machines are now priced according to CEPH.


  • You can now generate SSH key pairs directly within Hyperstack, in addition to the existing import option.
  • Added the option to automatically install Jupyter Notebooks within the "Deploy Virtual Machine" page. Enabling this option will automatically install Jupyter Notebook on your VM.
  • Replaced existing cloud-init scripts with a generic cloud-init script for installing Nvidia drivers.
  • Disabled options to modify the state of a VM when in an intermediate state (e.g. HIBERNATING) to avoid potential race conditions. The exception is that VMs can be deleted at any time.
  • API keys are now obfuscated for security. The API key is visible only once it has been created.


  • Resolved documentation issues for the GET user/info endpoint.


(Oct 5, 2023 - Nov 8, 2023)

Core services

  • Added metric for VMs created in the CANADA region.
  • Implemented event tracking when public IP is attached or detached from VMs.
  • Enhanced stock calculation to consider VMs in the CREATING state before creation.
  • Added the os field to VM details.
  • VM deletion is now restricted during CREATING or DELETING states.


  • Enhanced RBAC with new metrics permissions.

  • Introduced new CPU, RAM, and Disk prices for cpu-only flavors.
  • User billing address details are now collected before making a payment.
  • The SSH access command is now visible on the VM details page in Hyperstack.
  • VMs in the SHUTOFF state now display an alert indicating they are charged at standard rates. Users are advised they can hibernate their VMs to reduce costs.
  • Disabled menu options while VMs are in transition states (DELETING and HIBERNATING) to prevent errors.


  • Introduced APIs for submitting and retrieving billing information.
