VMWare / vCenter Integration

Chuck I shared this idea 5 years ago
Under Consideration

Greetings,

Integrating with VMware at the same level that you guys do with other visualization provisioning software would wondrous.

There has been some discussion about this already at http://forum.whmcs.com/showthread.php?62890-VMware-integration

I gave up on this about two years ago. The fact is WHMCS is aligned with cPanel (I think cPanel owns equity in WHMCS) and most new and innovative features happen with cPanel. Plesk is often relegated to a second class citizen.

WHMCS simply failed to capture the virtualisation market. Their modules are outdated and the fact that they don't even support VMware is real loss. After months of research I noticed that the best supported virtualisation module appears to by a 3rd party company called Modules Garden, but it's for a competing technology called Proxmox.

We even considered changing our whole infrastructure to Proxmox just to support overuse, but alas, easier said than done.

My other theory is that VMware is simply too "enterprise" and WHMCS simply to 'small to medium hosting provider'.

I need this. There are a few modules out there now but I'd like to se VMware supported directly my the WHMCS company. Something like this, virtualization, does not compete with cpanel so that should not even matter. I'd be getting more Cpanel licenses myself if I could control and sell VMware virtual servers using WHMCS.

Really hundereds of hosting companies looking for it,

Third party modules not working properly. Unfortinately whmcs does not handle for it .
