SolusVM: Integrated Platform Management Tools for VPS Hosting

SolusVM: Integrated Platform Management Tools for VPS Hosting

Web Hosting Companies Increasingly License SolusVM Software for VPS Platform Management

SolusVM is becoming increasingly popular in the web hosting industry for small, independent start-up companies who need a reliable means of managing VPS plans for customer support. SolusVM can be used with WHMCS, cPanel, CentOS, & a billing system like ClientExec to give resellers a full suite of web hosting service products on a single dedicated server. Just as WHMCS provides a complete solution for shared hosting business operations on Linux servers, SolusVM can be used to manage VPS partitions that are re-sold to clients under retail hosting account plans. Independent web hosting companies can lease dedicated hardware in a cloud data center or colocation facility to use SolusVM, WHMCS, cPanel, CentOS, & CloudLinux to scale from shared reseller plans to full operation of branded web hosting services as VPS providers by licensing the software from OnApp for use on a specific number of servers.

Multi-Cloud Management with OpenShift, Cloud Foundry, Mirantis, & OnApp

Integrated Network Administration for Hybrid Multi-Vendor Cloud Hosting Solutions

As the major IT corporations and web hosting companies continue to develop their own proprietary cloud data centers & software platforms, there has been an increase in the need for new multi-cloud management services that allow businesses and consumers to administer cloud hosting deployments across multiple vendors simultaneously. Multi-cloud management systems can be installed independently with Red Hat OpenShift (which supports OpenStack, AWS, KVM, VMware, & private cloud integration), while other platforms like Cloud Foundry, Mirantis, & OnApp Cloud offer ready-made PaaS products with easy to navigate web GUI administration of multi-vendor cloud cluster server network resources. The use of containers on cloud web servers like Docker & Kubernetes increases data portability through full-stack transfers that preserve the production and development requirements of complex, database-driven web and mobile applications with custom code, enabling continuous software delivery with version control updates from distributed Agile programming teams.

Advanced Page Caching Techniques for CMS Websites

Advanced Page Caching Techniques for CMS Websites

Understanding the Differences Between PHP, Database, & File Caching Systems

The introduction of advanced page caching techniques for websites as part of "platform as a service" cloud hosting plans has been a major industry trend over the last few years as data center companies develop new solutions targeted at CMS web hosting customers. Advanced page caching, load balanced network traffic, and low-density, premium hardware are all integral elements of many web hosting companies' proprietary cloud platforms. Shared hosting plans on cPanel now regularly include options for APC, Memcached, & OPcache as PHP runtime server extensions, while managed WordPress plans often include PaaS solutions based on Varnish Cache, Nginx, & Redis for even faster CMS website performance at scale. Facebook's HHVM is available on many cloud hosting plans with PHP 7 for optimizing web server pageload speeds on Apache. These advanced page caching solutions were developed in "big data" and enterprise IT applications under open source standards to be made available to small business owners and independent website publishers under retail cloud hosting service plans. It is important for website owners to understand the differences between PHP, database process, and file caching systems, as well as how to utilize available resources in a web hosting plan in order to get the best performance optimization for CMS websites on Linux servers.
