H-Sphere is a scalable multiserver web hosting solution. It has many advanced features and a sophisticated billing system to automate and improve your web hosting tasks. Also you can try Control Panels like Ensim, Plesk and Cpanel/WHM to automate and manage your web hosting tasks.
We've been using H-Sphere for approximately 18 months now.
It is very stable.
The support team at Positive Software is extremely knowledgable, curteous, and prompt.
The forum community is filled with very nice people who share of their time and experience.
H-Sphere allows you to have servers located around the globe.
H-Sphere allows you to have RedHat Linux (Enterprise WS or ES or 7.3), FreeBSD, or Windows 200x servers (note Windows 200x servers only for Web hosting; the brain of the system must run on RedHat Linux or FreeBSD).
We've seen our overall costs of hosting go down while our quality and reliability went up thanks to H-Sphere.
Hmm. I've often considered HS quite buggy and problematic. But dynamicnet, a long time and respected WHT member, seems to be quite a proponent of Hsphere, promoting HS in many threads. Clearly, it must be a cp worth looking at. I will have to take another look...

I have never wanted to put all my eggs into one basket. Hence we developed our own automation to integrate with server level CPs. It is also sophisticated enough to cluster if we decide to do so later.
The point.... if you have time and money, program your own. I am just too afraid to grow a large company on someone else's backend or proprietary software. You never know what will happen.
I know that doesn't directly answer your question, but its an opinion none the less.

I've heard of one called hostflow, the design is very nice, the organisation of it impressive... the execution? the jury is still out on the details. Only supports redhat 7.x last I checked. Similar structure to h-sphere, but possibly even more large-scale(recommended structure starts at around 5 servers if memory serves)
We've been using HSPHERE for over two years now (two years and nine days to be exact) and it has proven to be very stable and provides and excellent end user experience.
I've tried everything else there is and HSPHERE is simply the best complete solution, especially for the price. Plesk 7 is awfully impressive as well but it isn't an end to end solution in and of itself.
All of our servers are on Cpanel right now. After their latest forced update mayhem (had to redo 12 servers several times each) we are out of there.
I'm looking at H-Sphere because I want separate servers for mail, db and ns. I’m tired of losing every service when one thing goes down. I like the look of the Plesk7 and DirectAdmin but once again it looks like everything has to be on one server,
