I want my customers can reboot or power down and up the virtual servers. (and if it is possible to have more options).
I want also web interface for this.

Take a look at HyperVM at http://lxlabs.com/software/hypervm/ . I am using it in both a test and production environment.

The control panel is well supported and therm is an active community that is willing to answer any questions.

I learned Linux on Debian and switched to CentOS because I found that the popular control panels will not run on Debian.

Keep an eye on HyperVM as the developers are very responsive to suggestions.

I hope this helps.

Why buy this product if you can pay slightly more for a full blown Virtuozzo license?

Well, here is the list.

1) HyperVM will also work as a control panel for Xen as well as OpenVZ.
2) HyperVM will allow you to move VPS's between OpenVZ and Xen in real time, leaving all of the network connections in place.

3) HyperVM will be supporting Windows on Xen. this will allow for Linux AND Windows VPS to be on the SAME node.

There are many more reasons I have for recommending HyperVm as a control panel. And yes, I have used Virtuozzo also.

I hope this helps you undersatnd my recommendation.

So then it's a Xen product and openvz is just a side project.

I don't know, it seems like a nice product, but honestly as soon as VPS is going to justify itself as a product line, we're going with Virtuozzo.

Nope. It covers both equally. Xen support was added after OpenVZ support. it's actually a project that is looking at how to allow the most flexibility.

I just find it odd that if you talk toVirtuozzo, they have no clue HyperVM exists. It's kind like the history between Kmart and Wal-Mart. I am expecting that history to repeat it's self. Very Happy

Please PM me a link to your site. I'd like to see it, if you don't mind.

Hi Jody,

The problem is that the openvz project is the virtuozzo engine without all the power tools. So of course they don't know HyperVM when you talk with them. They developed an enterprise quality product and sell it at a premium.

I think the major problem with HyperVM is that it costs relatively a lot of money. For it to take off, it should be much much cheaper or free.

Take the OpenVZ/Virtuozzo model for example. A free product to build industry hype and spread the word and a commercial product if you want to unlock all the features.

Please understand, I'm not saying that HVM is a bad product, it's fantastic, but it may be up against a brick wall when it comes to marketing it.

Well fo me that is a tough call.
HyperVM runs about $1 per VPS per month. See http://lxlabs.com/store/ for more details. The also offer a fully functional 2 VPS, 2 server license for free.

Virtuozzo has no prices posted as far as I can see. You need to contact a sales rep to get a trial license or any kind of price. See http://www.swsoft.com/en/market/#virtuozzo for more details.

When you take a look at both products, both are a GUI for what you could do via command line with OpenVZ. Simple as that.

What this all comes down to is personal choice. I just felt that I should mention that another choice is out there. When looking at software, it is best to run a possible choice thru all possible situations and then make a decision.

Thank you for voicing your ideas and observations. My hope is that his thread will help others when deciding on a VPS control panel.

I'm totally with you on helping out the little guy but I've also seen the demo for both products and the presentation from Virtuozzo people and all i can say is that HVM is very nice but Virtuozzo is AMAZING.

the HVM people can't compete with VZ on it's own ground, they need to innovate the product in a way that VZ is not doing.

I have a feeling that is in the works. I have heard that LXlabs is working on a version of LXadmin that will run on a VPS that is running with 128MB of memory. I am also thinking HyperVM is right behind it.

I also know that both products currently have clustering capabilities. I have experimented with installing HyperVM and LXadmin on a VPS as the mater installs and controlled an OpenVZ and Xen node set up as slaves.

Thank you again for the discussion.

Are there no open source, freely available control panels? The webmin interface is a good start but has a long way to go and there doesn't seem to be any progress on it since its release.

I saw another mice looking application that showed promise, however the author said he was freezing it because there were better alternatives. I can't find any reasonable alternatives.

Any suggestions before I go write my own?

Thanks,
Jim.

When I log in with https I get a certificate mismatch warning. Is it okay to ignore this and log in?

I currently use Parallels Virtuozzo Servers, as well as their VDI containers. i love them I could never have this many servers on one node with VMware.

I am currently trying to test and deploy OpneVZ as I am familiar with some of the items with it. Also I like the fact that it is free.

I like both of the GUI's that I have seen and was going to try the later but looks like I may try hypervm it looks alot more like what i am using now. I do know that there are like 5 or so other web interfaces in use for openvz.
