In August last year we introduced the OpenApp CloudVPS Images. OpenApp is a collection of useful virtual server images, providing support for a single website and application, such as Wordpress, Joomla or MySQL. OpenApp is built on the open source control panel OpenPanel which is maintained by our own development team.
For single instances of an application OpenApp is the perfect solution. However, we do see a trend where our customers are using multiple virtual servers to run applications and websites. Although the databases and applications are often custom-built, what was missing was an affordable and fully functional loadbalancer/firewall. Preferably one that can be controlled via a simple and elegant user interface.
