New features and functionality in Parallels Plesk Panel 11 are designed to help hosters and distributors profit from the growing market for SMB cloud services.
Last week Parallels began previews of Parallels Plesk Panel 11 at World Hosting Days (WHD.Global), an annual hosting and cloud industry event held at Europa-Park in Rust, Germany that attracts over 3,500 attendees from over 80 countries. Designed for next-generation hosting and cloud environments, Parallels Plesk Panel 11 can help take hosters to the next level of profitability in their business. Available in server versions for both Linux and Microsoft Windows Server, Parallels Plesk Panel 11 can deliver higher average revenue per user (ARPU) while maximizing profits for growing service providers and improving operational efficiencies for resellers. It also provides revenue-generating capabilities such as an integrated Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) storefront with access to over 100 free and commercial web-based applications that enable hosters to create unique service plans to meet a variety of customer needs.

The market continues to take notice of Parallels momentum and the entire breadth of our software, expertise and ecosystem. Tech industry research firm IDC, in a recently published report from February 2102, states that, “Given Parallels' current base of 5,000 partners/customers in the SMB IT channel (hosting providers, resellers, and integrators) and market penetration of the Parallels' Plesk Panel product (50% market share in the control panel segment), IDC believes that the company is well positioned to establish an up-the-stack presence in the service delivery/enablement platforms of SMB cloud IT supply chain participants.”
