In the past, Plesk was largely used for server administration. At this moment, Plesk has expended its functionality and product reach to web applications including WordPress. HostingJournalist.com spoke to Plesk CTO Jan Löffler at CloudFest to hear about their current focus on WordPress and other web applications as well as Plesk’s plans for new product releases.
Illustrative for Plesk’s focus on WordPress is their recently launched WordPress Toolkit offering. Plesk CTO Jan Löffler explains what this product potentially can bring the hosting community. Plesk is also offering a ‘Smart Updates’ solution. Mr. Löffler says that this solution was born from a certain need present at web agencies. Besides that, WordPress is widely used of course, but there are more web publishing applications available. What about them?
As a global WebOps hosting platform, Plesk enables users to run, automate and grow applications, websites and hosting businesses. Plesk is now running on more than 380,000 servers, automating more than 11 million websites and 19 million mailboxes. Available in more than 32 languages across 140 countries, 50 percent of the top 100 service providers worldwide would be partnering with Plesk today.
Plesk CTO Jan Löffler was also on stage during CloudFest this year. In this video interview he summarizes what message he shared with his audience.
