Now that alternatives to SolusVM are both coming onto the market and being developed in-house providers are starting to make the migration. This also gives us access to a whole new world of opportunities including better integration into your environment. My question to all other providers are pretty simple. What features are you especially interested in that available panels are lacking? This is inclusive of things expanding away from virtualization, such as network and storage integration. Following the integration theme: billing integration. WHMCS is showing its true colors with the recent rash of publicized vulnerabilities. BuyVM is making the switch to a billing system integrated into their management panel - are other providers looking to do the same? Network integration. We get the option to do centralized usage tracking, complex routing and firewalling, etc. What are your networks like? What sort of alternative resource models are you interested in? Most available systems use resource templates - is there any interest in offering pooled resource plans? What about "cloud-like" billing (by the <insert-time-period>)? What do your clients request that isn't available in your current systems? Now I'm sure many of you are interested in keeping your ideas and implementations to yourselves, but my purpose here is to try and idealize the demands of the general provider community. If we can come together and build a feature set filling the needs of the community dealing with crud like SolusVM and WHMCS can finally be a thing of the past. Our customers should expect secure and reliable facilities from their providers, and with poorly implemented closed systems like these we can't guarantee that to our customers.
