    cPanel on a Cloud

    Has anyone attempted to install cPanel on a cloud running CentOS? I suppose it seems like it would work fine but was just wondering if anyone has tried it yet.

    It's no different to doing an install on a server or a vps.

    I figured. Now is there any real noticeable performance benefits to do that? Like to create a cloud of a couple servers, install cPanel and use that instead of using one server.

    Difference ? Depends entirely on your cloud - could be better, could be worse, could be the same ...

    If memory serves me correctly, and I could be wrong, but doesn't or didn't 3TERA (Applogic) have some technical limitations when it came to eth0 and the number of public IP's that could be configured?

    Phpcoder,

    I think in some old documentation 256 was the limit. However if that was per interface it'd be easy to add more.

    AquariusStoragePromo,

    You can go ahead and stick Cpanel on a cloud now and it should run fine, you'll benefit from cloud hardware and maybe scaling but it'll still be basically a VPS.

    The big movement in cloud will be developing existing applications such as Plesk, Cpanel etc. and moving them into a multi server environment.

    I've recently done a large amount of work to break up Cpanel so that it has external services and it was a nightmare!

    Im sure in the future Cpanel etc. will get around to making a cloud specific version and it'll open up a great number of opportunities for people running on cloud.
