Server automation and virtualisation software provider SWsoft has
launched Plesk 8.1 for Linux/Unix and Plesk 8.1 for Windows control
The new software adds to the Windows version many of the features found
in the Linux/Unix version, enabling hosting providers to offer
comparable solutions to their customers on both platforms. Future
versions of the software will be released simultaneously.
"Plesk 8.1 marks a major turning point for SWsoft and the hosting
market by bringing the capabilities of the Linux/Unix version to the
Windows platform," says Lorena Diaz, product manager, SWsoft. "After an
intensive product development effort that included the SWsoft Community
Technology Preview program, Plesk 8.1 delivers a high quality control
panel solution with significantly enhanced customisation and management
capabilities for providers, resellers and end users."
Plesk 8.1 for Windows includes functionality - previously offered only
with Plesk 8.0 for Linux/Unix - to improve ease-of-use and system
management for administrators and customers. Plesk 8.1 for Linux/Unix
includes improvements to the custom desktop, new user-friendly news
management features and support for Fedora Core 5. Plesk Desktop is
designed to give administrators and clients quick access to major
management functions and immediate access to mission critical
information and statistics.
In addition, the improved integration of Plesk 8.1 with SWsoft
Virtuozzo virtualisation software supports SWsoft's OpenFusion
initiative to move all of its products to a common platform and advance
integration among a wide range of systems, third party applications,
and custom and in-house systems. Platform benefits include reduced
time-to-market for service offerings, more automated and integrated
systems with single sign-on.
