If you’re a Cloud service provider interested in offering virtual private server (VPS) hosting to small and medium businesses, Parallels enables you to do so more profitably. We offer automation for the delivery of Linux and Windows VPSs. And Parallels give you a choice of three virtualization technologies: the highly efficient, container-based Parallels Virtuozzo Containers (PVC), Microsoft Hyper-V servers for Dynamic Data Center deployments and elastic Cloud Infrastructure.
Parallels Automation and PVC streamline VPS hosting with full automation of ordering, provisioning, billing, charge-backs, and user notifications. Parallels also simplifies management of applications and quality-of-service parameters. For example, you can:
For further flexibility, you can link all quality-of-service parameters—such as CPU, memory, and disk usage—to service templates, so users can easily select the options they need. You can also specify additional parameters, such as sockets, processes, TCP connections, and more.
You can choose to deliver both fully managed VPSs, which spare customers the complexities of server management and allow them to set server options via a Web front end; and VPSs with root access, where customers manage their servers directly through command lines and scripts. In both cases, customers can order, maintain, and pay for services online, so a decision to buy or upgrade results in immediate service delivery.

Microsoft’s System Center provides core deployment and monitoring capabilities for Hyper-V virtual machines using its Dynamic Data Center. Parallels Automation augments those capabilities by providing end-to-end automation, including an automated storefront, payment processing and billing, pre-engineered service modules, provisioning, built-in business support (such as help with branding or reseller management), and self-service control panels. Plus it helps you increase profits by enabling you to deliver a wide range of Cloud services and service bundles with a single automation system. Parallels gives you:
