After launching its hyperVM product in summer 2006 with support for OpenVZ and Xen, Lxlabs is ready to push out the new 1.4, which introduce interesting features:
- Industrial Strength centralized backup for the entire cluster
HyperVM backup uses linux hardlinks and rsync protocol to greatly reduce the space and the network overhead needed for backup management
- IP pool
Allows the Administrator to keep track of all the ipaddresses from a single location, and also automates the process of assigning ipaddresses to a VPS
- VPS Plans
Create vpses with a single click utilizing pre-built hosting plans
- A commercial grade port monitoring system incorporated directly into the software allowing the users to monitor specific ports on their vpses themselves
- A cluster wide reverse dns system, allowing the adminstrators to delegate creation directly to the customers
- Graphs that provide health statistics and resource usage patterns of the virtual machines
- Centralized Ostemplate management
The ostemplates need to be maintained only on the master, and the slave nodes will automatically download them if they don’t have it
- Fine grained client control
HyperVM 1.4 provides the ability to control every aspects of your customer by limiting each feature individually
