CloudLinux, the maker of the leading operating system for hosting providers, has announced the beta release of its CloudLinux OS Reseller Limits feature – allowing hosting resellers to manage end-user resource usage.
Now, hosting providers can set limits for the amount of resources each hosting reseller can operate. It gives tools to the resellers to control the resources each end-user has. These resources include CPU, IO, memory, number of processes, and concurrent connections per each end-user.
“CloudLinux pioneered end-user limits seven years ago, yet, the ability to limit resellers was still out of reach for hosters,” said Igor Seletskiy, CloudLinux chief executive officer (CEO) and founder. “Over the past eighteen months, our team has been working actively on this highly anticipated feature and we are very excited to announce its beta.”
The CloudLinux OS proprietary Lightweight Virtual Environment (LVE) technology prevents users from bringing down the server by allowing hosts to set up individual resource limits. This would ensure 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.
CloudLinux’s Reseller Limits feature within the LVE Manager would ensure the stability and security of servers and would allow hosting providers to offer more valuable services to their resellers. It would also empower resellers to expand their offering to their end-users, adjust their pricing models, and optimize space usage.
