Server virtualization management software

Complete toolkit for virtual machines management, VPS provisioning, and building of high-availability clusters.

Manage virtual machines

VMmanager presents a web based user interface for server virtualization management. It allows users to create virtual machines using OpenVZ or KVM hypervisors and manage them using wide functionality of VMmanager.

Hosting providers can use VMmanager to provide VPS services to their clients. The solution is fully integrated with popular billing software such as BILLmanager, WHMCS, or HostBill, and also gives end-users the ability to manage their VPSs.

Build cloud infrastructure & deploy HA clusters

VMmanager Cloud allows you to build cloud infrastructure and deploy high-availability clusters with unlimited number of nodes.

VMmanager Cloud consists of operational nodes (for running virtual machines) and fail-over network storages (for locating VM discs). The solution uses Corosync to detect cluster availability and iSCSI, Ceph and GlusterFS to deploy HA network storages. If one of the servers is down, VMmanager distributes its virtual machines between the remaining nodes one by one.

Main features

Perfect set of tools for server virtualization management

Server virtualization

Divide a dedicated server into several isolated virtual machines using OpenVZ or KVM virtualizations.

VM management

Use intuitive web-based interface to create, reboot, activate, and suspend virtual machines.

OS deployment

Deploy operating systems in automatic or manual modes. Use OS templates, special recipes or boot a VM from ISO.

Storages

Increase performance of VM by setting up local or network storages such as iSCSI, RBD, GlusterFS, Network LVM.

Live migration

Move running virtual machines between cluster nodes without downtime.

Monitoring

Monitor resource consumption by using statistics with reports & charts.

HTML5 VNC client

Use the built-in HTML5 noVNC client for virtual network computing.

IPv6 support

Set up primary and alias IPv6 addresses to access VMs & the panel.

VPS provisioning

VMmanager is an ideal solution for hosting providers who want to automatically sell VPS services to their clients.

VPS provisioning

Automatically provide VPS services to your clients by integrating VMmanager with popular billing software such as BILLmanager, WHMCS, HostBill. Sell pre-configured VPS plans or set up custom configurations for clients.

Client access to VPS management

Allow customers to manage their virtual servers from an intuitive interface. Empower them to deploy a server, re-install OS, reboot virtual machine, make and restore backups, etc.

Clients support

Connect to client's virtual machine using the built-in VNC HTML 5 client. It would save a lot of time of your support team.

High-availability cluster deployment

VMmanager Cloud makes it possible to deploy a fault-tolerant cluster and build high-availability cloud infrastructure. If one of the nodes is down, VMmanager distributes its VMs between the remaining nodes one by one.

The system consists of operational nodes for running virtual machines and fail-over network storages such as iSCSI, Ceph and GlusterFS for locating VM discs. VMmanager Cloud uses Corosync to detect availability of every VM within a cluster.

How it works
  1. The master node identifies the cluster node with the lowest number of virtual machines.
  2. It checks whether there is enough RAM to locate the VM.
  3. If there is enough memory on a node for the pertinent machine, VMmanager creates a new VM on this node.
  4. If there is not enough memory, the system checks the other nodes with more virtual machines.

Specifications

Restore time

After having tested various hardware configurations and inquired many current VMmanager Cloud users we identified that normally it takes 45-90 sec to distribute and restore operation of all VMs from the failed node, depending on equipment performance.

Security model

VMmanager can use one or a few nodes as a safeguard against emergency situations and not to deploy VMs on these nodes during routine operation. It minimizes the chances of lacking resources on the live cluster nodes for adding virtual machines from the failed node.

VMmanager advantages

Cut down equipment costs

Migrate virtual machines between cluster nodes to optimize load on each server & maximize effective allocation of VPSs between your servers, thus negating the need to invest into unneeded infrastructure.

When you need to scale-up, you will be able to easily add new nodes, update hardware, and distribute the load.

Reduce operating costs

Because VMmanager helps to reduced a number of used hardware equipment, you'll be able to minimize the costs of its maintenance and reduce the number of tech specialists working with the system.

The intuitive interface of VMmanager doesn’t require a high level of tech skills, allowing to spend less time on maintenance.

Minimize costs of failures

VMmanager Cloud contains tools for automatic failure recovery. Service timeouts in case if one of the nodes goes down will be 45-60 sec. in average and no longer than a couple of minutes.

The system also provides high availability of the control panel itself. In case if the node with VMmanager fails, it would be launched on the other node.

Maximize stability and security

VMmanager gets new security updates and feature improvements every week. The team of developers from ISPsystem is constantly working on improving the user experience, maximizing stability of the control panel operation, and security of the overall system.

If you face any problems, just let us know as our support is available 24/7.

ISPsystem is gaining global traction with their VMmanager. The customer-focused platform is a model of flexibility, offering bargain-priced 1-month or 1-year plans in addition to lifetime licenses and a free version that won’t expire.

VMmanager was a right tool for starting high availability VPS services. Extensive experience with the products of ISPsystem allowed us to deploy a test version in week, and in two – real clients already worked on the infrastructure.

Terms

QEMU is open source software that allows to virtualize a guest platform by using full or partial emulation of hardware environment. The system uses two emulation levels: user (imitation of specific CPU tasks) and system (full imitation of CPU and other systems). QEMU supports emulation of peripheral devices for PC (keyboard, mouse, audio card, etc.) and for other systems, such as emulation of the basic board АРМ Versatile. QEMU supports the most popular architectures (x86, x86_64, PowerPC, ARM, SPARC, MIPS, SH-4, m68k) and is able to transmit the binary code of one architecture to the other.
KVM is a hardware-level hypervisor based on AMD and Intel VT-x that allows to create virtual servers. KVM itself doesn’t support emulation feature, however together with QEMU app it allows using OS disks images by virtual machines. As result every VM has its own virtual equipment including network card, video card, etc. One of the major differences from OVZ is that KVM servers are isolated from each other and have a strict limits of its resources. Besides, every virtual server has its own OS core and it’s possible to modify it according with any specific needs and install any OS from distributive. VMmanager was designed to increase the convenience of working with virtual machines.
OpenVZ is software for container virtualization. OpenVZ is used for creating multiple VPS on one physical server, so that each VPS would live separately, have its own networks, files, etc. However, the owner of a physical server is capable of mass management, as it can overview and manage all VPS, which is not possible in other virtualization systems. One of the cons is that OpenVZ can only launch Linux operating systems (CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu). It is not possible to use other distributives since the main system uses Linux.
Hypervisor is a hardware framework of creating and managing virtual machines within a single dedicated server or host-computer. Hypervisor allows to run several independent operating systems at the same time. There are 3 types of hypervisors: native/bare-metal, hosted and hybrid. Native hypervisors work without installed OS and give direct access to hardware. Hosted hypervisors run on a conventional operating system and while guest OS runs as a process on the conventional one. Hybrid hypervisors also allow to work directly with hardware, but also has a service OS that provides guest systems with an access to hardware.
Corosync is open source software that realizes group communication of fault tolerant clusters. It is used in Pacemaker system for establishing connection between the clusters.
