    Ensim Pro control panel sold to SWSoft

    Ensim Pro control panel sold to SWSoft....

    Any comments? Ensim have been very quite on their pro product for some time so i am hoping SWSoft make the most of this and dont just get rid or integrate the product into their own......

    Anyone have any good contacts at SWSoft as I really need to speak to someone.

    I am afraid it will lead to the death of Ensim. Ensim is just standalone control panel, not clustered product likes H-Sphere. And even H-Sphere, they have standalone version. I am not sure about H-Sphere, but I tried Ensim before, and it's a bit difficult to use, so...

    Ensim is a fantastic product if you arent looking for a playskool look and following the sheep like every other damn host on the market.

    Its ok to say you dont like it, but its a great product. SWSoft obviously see value in it and I think they will continue development of the product alongside existing product lineups, just interested to see how this unfolds.

    I personally wouldnt trust any other product for shared hosting.

    So now swsoft is developing:

    Plesk for linux and windows
    Confixx
    Ensim for linux and windows

    That's five distinct and separate competing products.

    The also have:

    virtuozzo
    hspcomplete
    PEM
    DAS

    PEM and DAS are almost the same product as well.

    How many competing products can they realistically develop and manage. More over, why would they want to have all these products in house that directly compete with each other? Seems like they just out some competition with this announcement.

    Per Ensim and my SWSoft contact we will be notified within the next few weeks with new account managers assignments.

    SWSoft has provided an email address ensimpro@swsoft.com

    How Fun!

    Consolidation is now happening in the hosting control panel market.

    Interesting.

    I predict that SW Soft will merge several of their control panels into a single product within 1.5 years. It makes no sense to do otherwise.

    Buying Ensim is a smart move, I think.

    Per a phone conversation that I had an hour ago with my contact they have no plans to merge panels, to make his point he said "We acquired Confixx several years ago and it is still Confixx" so Ensim users should not be alarmed.

    Ensiplex sounds good as well...

    Interesting development for sure - I've always been interested in Ensim, having used it as my first CP. However, I could never really deal with the costs when compared to the other options out there. This could end up being a positive thing, maybe the guys at SWSoft can make it more accessible for someone like me.

    Cost? Long term Ensim has worked out cheaper than panels such as Cpanel... I always prefer up front costs to own a licence rather than monthly or recurring fees. This is the first thing SWSoft will change I fear

    Matt, I second that. I prefer to the initial investment into the license rather than recurring fees.

    I just spoke with Jager from SWSOFT, Manager for Asian Operations @ SWSOFT, It seems to me that they are intending to sell it "as a service" model pushing it for resellers, rather than up front purchases.

    Costs? Ensim is always cheaper long term, not just for the recurring costs, but because of the reliability the CP is designed, saves troubles on admin, security etc.

    Will be more SWsoft purchased announced in the future I am sure of that.

    It will soon be the "godpanel" or something like that, and PEM will be there to be "god" over the other panels

    I am a bit alarm, I am hoping that there will be more independent controlpanels in the market rather than one company controlling all. Thankfully Directadmin is still not acquired and Cpanel is doing strong.
