Parallels, the leading hosting and cloud services enablement provider, today announced that Parallels Plesk Panel 11 is the fastest growing cloud panel in company history, deployed to more than 120,000 servers supporting small and medium businesses (SMBs), web designers and hosters. Parallels Plesk Automation is also seeing strong adoption by more than 400 professional hosters serving thousands of SMBs since its introduction earlier this year. Parallels Plesk Panel and Parallels Plesk Automation now integrate with WHMCS to meet the billing requirements of many providers.
Parallels Plesk Panel 11 provides hosters with the latest technologies to create rich hosting plans to manage customers and resellers with the latest technologies and delivers outstanding performance, strong security and mobile options. The latest version of Parallels Plesk Panel 11 also provides the broadest range of operating systems and virtualization technology options of any control panel for professional hosters and webmasters.
Parallels Plesk Automation is a scalable, multi-server automation solution enabling a seamless growth path for Parallels Plesk Panel customers. Deployments can scale from just a few servers to hundreds of servers in co-location datacenters with access to robust applications enabled through Parallels Application Standard, (APS).
Parallels Plesk Automation helps hosters minimize operational costs, thereby freeing up resources that can ultimately drive not only stronger business growth on the top line but also increased margin on the bottom line. Folding management of multiple servers into a single consolidated platform allows hosters to scale, compete and differentiate in a crowded landscape.
"Vendors such as Parallels that build tools to enable scale and drive operational efficiency have a distinct edge and separate themselves from other panel tools in the market," said Philbert Shih, managing director at Structure Research. "Parallels Plesk Automation is the only solution on the market we have seen that allows hosters to manage multiple servers on a single consolidated platform."
"With the deployment of Parallels Plesk Automation, we have improved our customer satisfaction levels and witnessed a significant improvement in service quality," said Samir Jhaveri, managing director, XcellHost. "As a managed hosting and cloud services provider, customers depend on us to be reliable so that they can run their online businesses with the least possible disruption. At the same time, our rapid growth meant we needed to scale our hosting infrastructure quickly and cost-effectively. The deployment has allowed us to scale our operations while removing the single point of failure that was inherent in previous control panel configurations."
"Our customers are demanding solutions that help them compete and grow their businesses," said John Zanni, vice president, Service Provider Marketing and Alliances at Parallels. "With Parallels Plesk Automation, not only can hosters manage multiple servers from one platform, but our partners can also improve security of their infrastructure and lower and simplify operations to boost their growth and profitability."
"Our goal is to provide a state of the art hosting reseller platform," said Joe Alagna, vice president of channel development at 101domain.com. "101domain.com is the first international registrar to manage a large scale Parallels Plesk Automation system. Furthermore, we chose Parallels Plesk Automation because it gives us a centralized way to offer secure, scalable, and independently branded retail and reseller hosting solutions."
