Parallels Plesk Automation is a scalable, multi-server automation solution for shared hosting, giving growing hosters the power, performance, and scale previously only available to hosting giants.
I'm a little bit dumbfounded by the simplicity of this thing. I thought configuring service nodes would require me logging into those nodes (SSH or RDC) and installing the packages that is necessary. However, all you do is add the login details and this thing takes it from there!
I'm a bit excited to use this to start offering Windows Hosting and possibly switch over linux hosting to this. I can't wait for the release of this software as it's extremely promising.
