All about VPS Management Software

The point is that with the new price drop, “cloud” VPS providers actually provide companies and end users with extensible software hosting with “shared” hosting prices. The key is that you are able to control (and own) the underlying infrastructure, whereas before, you could not.

Whilst this is great, there is a major problem – you are responsible for setting up the servers and keeping them up to date & running etc. Even if you go down the path of a “managed” server infrastructure, there is no underlying management software (such as CPanel) which gives you the ability to manage the various services running on the system.

Ultimately, in order to get a VPS (or any server) running properly, you need to ensure that you have the various pieces of software required to get a web server functioning effectively fully operational; which includes the “web server” software itself, the underlying libraries / dependencies at the OS level and the likes of the server’s programming language you wish to use.

On top of this, you need to ensure that the server has the most appropriate “application server” software to handle any of the programming languages required to run the applications you may be trying to deploy to the system.

Most people don’t know / realize this – if you’re running a Ruby on Rails / NodeJS application on your server, you basically have to ensure that you have the appropriate server software to support its requests. Without this (and this is why most “shared hosting” is not adequate), you’ll end up with relatively little by way of being able to manage the underlying system.
