Integrated AWS platform CloudMGR has released a new integration module for WHMCS, the company announced this week. Integrating WHMCS’s automation solution with AWS will make it easy for web hosts and IT service providers to sell AWS, according to CloudMGR.
CloudMGR, an AWS Technology partner, says the module deploys in minutes and allows management of server images, storage and backups, and includes a product wizard in both the admin and client areas.
The module allows service providers to sell and provision AWS EC2 and S3. Admins can also create products from pre-existing images including WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla. It is offered out of AWS centers in the US, Australia, the EU, Singapore, Tokyo, South America and Germany.
Previously, CloudMGR could be linked to WHMCS, but customer feedback led the company to build an API to support its first module.
OnApp responded to service provider demands for WHMCS integration with a module released in January. As public cloud and AWS adoption continue to grow quickly, automation should enable more hosting, agency, and IT service providers to more easily leverage AWS.
“By extending the functionality to include cloud management tools, CloudMRG provides hosting companies and services providers and unique opportunity to extend their product portfolios and tap into Cloud Hosting for their businesses,” said Matt Pugh, CEO of WHMCS.
Leveraging AWS by providing visibility or management services is a growing trend. AWS partner 2nd Watch announced it had upgraded its AWS Enterprise App management service with performance monitoring by New Relic in October. Cloudyn launched a multi-cloud cost management tool for its largely AWS customer base last week.
