Resource Allocation Controls for Web Hosting Resellers Using Plesk
The more control you have over system usage the better the experience for all parties involved.
CloudLinux, the maker of a popular operating system for hosting providers, and Plesk, the developer of a leading WebOps platform, have announced that CloudLinux OS’s popular resource allocation feature for web hosting resellers -- Reseller Limits -- now works with the Plesk control panel.
The feature allows resellers to manage end-user resource usage. Hosting providers, for example, can set limits on the amount of resources each reseller can operate, and offers resellers the tools (and opportunities) they need to control the resources (including CPU, IO, memory, number of processes, and concurrent connections) each end-user has right inside Plesk control panel.
The CloudLinux OS and its proprietary Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology solution, prevents end-users from bringing down the server by allowing web hosts to set up individual resource limits. This ensures that users can never use more resources than was allocated to them, and now the ability to set limits has been extended to the resellers for their end-users.
“The Reseller Limits feature in CloudLinux OS was one of the most anticipated enhancements released 5 months ago, and now customers of Plesk can fully take advantage of it,” said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux chief executive officer and founder. “It allows hosting providers to offer more valuable services to their resellers. It empowers resellers to expand their offering to their end-users, adjust their pricing models, and optimize space usage.”
