ElasticHosts Linux containers are the first container solution that can integrate with cPanel v11.52. Prior to the new release, cPanel could only run on VM servers with VPS licensing.
The new facility allows users to take advantage of the containers auto-scaling technology which accommodates varying usage patterns. It also means users are billed for the exact amount of server capacity used, rather than the amount provisioned, helping to lower costs typically saving up to 50% on hosting costs.
Additionally the auto scaling functionality means users can cope with varying server demands and quickly expand their business by launching multiple sites.
To run cPanel on an ElasticHosts Container, users simply select “Add server (container)” and select the “cPanel 11.52” preinstalled image from the options in the ElasticHosts control panel. Commenting on the deal Richard Davies, CEO of ElasticHosts said. “We worked closely with cPanel integrating and testing the product to make this a reality and believe our technologies complement each other well. Today’s announcement shows that containers are gaining real momentum in the internet community and we are delighted to offer our ElasticHosts Containers to cPanel’s customers.”
