replacement module for HyperVM

Recommended Posts

Below is a reply i received from Matt in regards to a module to replace HyperVM

 

"Hi,

 

As soon as there's a clear favorite for what people are moving to from HyperVM then we'll certainly be looking at writing a module for it.

 

Regards,

 

Matt "

 

As Matt wants us to come up with a favourite to replace the HyperVM modules then please list here your favourite control panel to replace HyperVM.

 

Please no long winded stories, just simple choices here.

first option (support everything - openvz, xen, virtualbox, etc):

Have API support too

http://www.libvirt.org

 

second option:

Don't know if have API support

http://www.vtonf.com

 

3rd option:

Have API support, but isn't free.

virtuozzo

I'll be trying both:

* VMWare

* virtualmin

I'll say vtonf is definitely out of the list. It is buggy, developer MIA (I read so), last update is a year ago I think.

 

Virtuozzo is definitely very welcomed, as I'm sure many WHMCS clients are eager to have that being supported. There is something being developed called SolusVM, and their ETA is mid-July. Not sure if it is a good one, but looks promising.

read the initial post it asking for members favourites so WHMCS can decide which to modulate not a list of control panels like what you have provided, so if you cannot read posts correctly then dont reply to them.

But virtuozzo not supports xen machines.

 

In this case, libvirt.org is an excellent api to be used.

Virtuozzo - popular and proven, although no Xen support

XenServer 5 - popular, proven and enterprise-grade...and now free so economical for hosting providers.

Also VDSmanager (from ISPsystem.com) - quite good but a bit pricey. Also not very widely used, but that's probably due to their lack of marketing. That "other" web host billing software already supports VDSmanager and other products from ISPsystem.

My huge favorite would be proxmox. I'm using it as long as hypervm but although lesser options I find it very very stable. Furthermore it seems to perform better compared to Hypervm. If a Proxmox module would become available I buy everyone a beer here ;)

Is proxmox similar to HyperVM? Their site seems to present it as an anti-spam tool...but I didn't look long enough to see if there are different products.

 

BTW, a few people on WHT are already saying they've migrated to VDSmanager.

I will insist in libvirt, for just one reason: work with any virtualization technology.

Virtuozzo please !

 

How about one we've all been asking for for a long time... Virtuozzo.

 

Vituzzon doesn't support full virtualiztion (like XEN / KVM / VMWare does) so it shouldn't be a replacement for HyperVM.

 

My choices would be

Citrix Xenserver

promoxo

enomaly

openQRM

I look these solutions, and all that don't offer support to OpenVZ and XEN at the same time.

 

HyperVM support both virtualization types, for this reason I suggest libvirt.org.

 

Some reasons to use it:

 

1- it's just an API;

2- a module can be created directed in whmcs, without any control panel;

3- users will manage vmachines inside whmcs;

4- run every kind of type virtualization model;

5- it's free and opensource;

 

features:

 

* The Xen hypervisor on Linux and Solaris hosts.

* The QEMU emulator

* The KVM Linux hypervisor

* The LXC Linux container system

* The OpenVZ Linux container system

* The User Mode Linux paravirtualized kernel

* The VirtualBox hypervisor

* Storage on IDE/SCSI/USB disks, FibreChannel, LVM, iSCSI, NFS and filesystems

* Remote management using TLS encryption and x509 certificates

* Remote management authenticating with Kerberos and SASL

* Local access control using PolicyKit

* Zero-conf discovery using Avahi multicast-DNS

* Management of virtual machines, virtual networks and storage

* Portable client API for Linux, Solaris and Windows

* A toolkit to interact with the virtualization capabilities of recent versions of Linux (and other OSes).

* Free software available under the GNU Lesser General Public License.

* A long term stable C API

* A set of bindings for common languages

* A CIM provider for the DMTF virtualization schema

* A QMF agent for the AMQP/QPid messaging system

VDS Manager seems to be good for us.

 

Still looking into all the options though.

Also, just to clear things up VDS Manager is £190 Owned Lifetime License or £29/month.

From what I've read so far, libvirt also looks like a very good option.

Can somebody please point out which VM software has (1) Very good (live?) backups, (2) Tools for migrating VMs from PC to PC, (3) Migrations from Windows / Linux 'live' installation to VMs. That's the one I want.
